Power Options Available for Automatic Window Shades

Motorized Shades

Automatic window shades from Polar Shades add a modern touch to any home or office. With a full range of options to suit any need or budget size, you can forget about ever having to manually raise or lower window coverings again.

Motorized window coverings are available in a wide variety of styles and colors to match any décor. In addition to choosing a suitable look, consumers have several power source options. Somfy’s WireFree motors run off eight extended life AA lithium batteries saving on installation costs and eliminating the need to conceal wires. The 12V battery tube is suitable for installation above or behind the headrail.

Electric motors are maintenance free with no need to replace batteries. The motor runs off any standard electrical outlet, which the installer can hide behind the valance for aesthetic purposes. Consumers may opt for the In-Wall Wired shades that run conveniently off the building’s electrical system with no outlet necessary for operation.

Automatic Window Shades Available for Exterior too

Automation options for exterior window coverings include wind and sun sensors. These units sense wind speeds and light levels and respond automatically to thresholds set by the user. Combination sensors respond to both. After the user programs in the levels, shades will open and close without any further input required.

Users can control motorized window shades with a hand-held remote, switch, timer or any combination of the three. They can decide whether to operate the shades independently, as a group or both.

Automatic coverings offer the ideal solution for hard to reach windows. Users with mobility problems can raise and lower the shades with ease and no need to struggle with cords or chains. Continuous monitoring occurs even while users are away from the building for extended periods.
