Safety

While you’re away from home, you may find yourself kicking yourself for forgetting to close the blinds before you left. Thieves could potentially peer through your windows to case your home for a burglary. Managing your motorized window treatments while you’re away is simple!

Open the Caséta Wireless app on your smartphone to close your blinds with the tap of a button. You can also schedule your shades to adjust automatically at specific times of day—rising in the morning to allow sunlight to brighten your home and lowering in the evenings. You can also set pre-programmed scenes—select the Away scene to lower your shades and restrict anyone from gazing through your windows as you head out the door for work or vacation.

Convenience

Imagine waking up in the morning to motorized window treatments automatically rising with the sun to help you wake up more naturally. You can set your shades to adjust to an astronomic time clock to raise in the mornings or lower at dusk. You can also control your window treatments using a wide variety of IR remote controls, keypads, wireless tabletop controls, and your smart device.

A more comprehensive option would be to integrate your motorized window treatments and lighting control system into your smart home automation system. You can synchronize all of your smart home devices to operate in sync—as your shades rise to allow light and heat inside your Newport Beach, CA home, your smart thermostat can sense the temperature of the room and turn off, allowing you to save money on energy costs.

Wired or Wireless

There are a variety of wired and wireless options from window treatment manufacturers like Lutron. Wired options are great for new home builds before the drywall installation. If your drywall is already installed and you’d prefer not to retrofit wiring into your existing wall, then wireless would be a good option for you.

Wireless options use batteries, and though batteries will need eventual replacement, models can last up to seven years. Both wired and wireless options bring convenience and elegance into your Newport Beach home in a way manual blinds simply cannot compete with.
