Let Launch Systems Find the Perfect Lutron Motorized Shades for Your Home. 

California is a beautiful, sunny state. On hot summer afternoons, it is hard not to squint outdoors or even inside if you don’t have efficient window treatments. Similarly, keeping your home comfortable and cozy during the winter is much harder without the proper shading solutions. The importance of adding the best motorized shades to your home is undeniable, especially since they help with privacy and climate control. With dozens of window treatment options to choose from, it is difficult to pick the right brand and products. For smart shades, the issues of programming, installation, and integration with other technology systems also come into play.  At Launch Systems, we will help you pick the perfect motorized shades for your home in Newport Beach, CA, and design, install, and automate your window treatments for optimal performance. To start, we recommend Lutron, the leading name in lighting control and smart shading systems and one of our trusted brand partners.  Here is a brief review of Lutron’s top-selling motorized shades to help you pick the best solutions for your smart home.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are your first option when looking for motorized window treatments, and as their name indicates, they roll up and down at the tap of a smart interface. Depending on the type of fabric you pick, the benefits of your smart shades will range from privacy to climate control and beyond. For example, sheer roller shades are see-through but still protect from UV rays. On the other hand, dim-out sheers give you added privacy, and blackout fabrics are 100% opaque.  Lutron’s Roman shades allow you to work with your own materials. So, if you have the fabric pattern to go with your home theater wallpaper, why not use it on the windows there? You will get the perfect look and still reap the benefits of Lutron technology!  If you would like to try motorized shades before venturing into a more significant investment, Lutron also offers solutions for every budget. From their battery-powered Serena shades to the top-of-the-line Palladium family, we can help you find the right product for your smart home. 

Tensioned & Cable-Guided Shades 

In all of our years in the market, the expert team at Launch Systems has found many windows in odd or hard-to-reach spaces. Is this the case in your home? No worries, we have the experience to install smart shades there as well! For angled windows and skylights, we rely on Lutron’s tensioned shades. They minimize sag and use intelligent hembar alignment technology to synchronize with other shades in your home. In areas with high-wind conditions, Lutron’s cable-guided shades prevent unwanted motion and potential damage to glass surfaces.   There is a lot to consider when picking the right window treatments for your smart home, but we are just a screen tap away and always ready to help.
