POWER & CONTROL OPTIONSThe Shade Store offers multiple power options for automatic window shades, blinds and drapery:
For a super simple solution that works with most windows, choose The Shade Store rechargeable battery option for your electric blinds, shades and drapery. With a charge that lasts 8-12 months, you’ll enjoy the ease of automatic window treatments for nearly a year at a time.
- Our quickest and easiest solution; no wiring or electrician needed
- Quieter, longer-lasting and more powerful than competitor battery options
- Battery and motor can often be hidden within the window treatment for a flawless look
- Recharge only 1 to 2 times per year for your convenience and peace of mind
Pair a solar panel with your rechargeable battery motor for a sustainable, energy-efficient solution. With a solar panel installed, the charge of your battery can be extended for up to 3 years.
- Compatible with The Shade Store rechargeable battery
- Includes a 12” W x 2 ¼” H solar panel either fixed to the glass or mounted in the window box using a special bracket
- Additional panels can be installed for low-light areas
- Consistently recharges battery to extend its charge for up to 3 years
The plug-in option is the traditional method of powering your electric blinds, shades and drapery. It includes cords that connect the motor to a power outlet. This option works well with windows that already have an outlet nearby. It can also work well with drapery, as the drapes hide the cords that trail from the motor to an outlet near the floor.
- Works well for windows with outlets nearby
- Plugs into a standard outlet — no recharging needed
- Can be hardwired by your electrician if no outlets are nearby
- Quieter than our battery motors
- Available for The Shade Store and Somfy motorization
The low-voltage power option is only compatible with Lutron and Somfy motorization systems. While it requires special wiring by an electrician, low-voltage power is the quietest option and uses minimal energy for an efficient option.
- Very quiet motor
- Requires specific wiring by an electrician
- Available only with automation by Lutron or Somfy motors
Once set up, your automated system allows you to open and close your window treatments at will for easy control over your natural light and privacy. For an even more automated experience, you can also synchronize your window treatments by setting your favorite positions and scheduling timers from our app or remote control.
The Shade Store motorized window treatments are also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Apple HomeKit and most other smart home systems like Crestron, Control 4, Savant, Elan and many more. These advanced options let you control your electric window treatments with your voice. Keep in mind you will still need The Shade Store Wireless Link in order to correctly connect your smart home device to your motorized blinds, shades and drapery.
If you choose to go with automation by Lutron or Somfy motorization, these each have their own control methods, which include a remote, app, or connection with many popular smart home devices.
MOTORIZED WINDOW TREATMENTS OPTIONSYou can apply motorization to most of our window treatments, including Roller Shades, Solar Shades, Roman Shades, Woven Wood Shades, Cellular Shades and Drapery. For our Wood and Metal Blinds, motorization only allows you to tilt the slats open or close, so you will still need to manually lift and lower the blinds. Motorization is not available for Relaxed Roman Shades, Tulip Roman Shades, Grommet Drapery, Rod Pocket Drapery, Cubicle Drapery, Faux Wood Blinds or Vertical Blinds.
