Frequently Asked Questions

How do motorized shades work?

While walking out to your kitchen in the morning and seeing your motorized shades raise in perfect unison may seem a little like magic, there is science behind their extreme convenience and beauty. These window coverings come in wired and wireless options, making them ideal for new builds and remodels. 

Both wired and battery-operated solutions use a whisper-quiet motor to raise and lower your window coverings. These can be programmed to automatically adjust based on the sun's position, temperature, or time of day. They also offer one-touch or voice control, making raising or lowering every shade in your home effortless.

Are motorized shades worth it?

Smart window coverings not only offer extreme convenience, but they can also save you money. In the summer, when direct sunlight enters a room, and the temperature rises, they automatically lower, reducing the pressure on your HVAC system and corresponding energy costs. In the winter, they react to cold, raising shades to bring in the sun's warmth and lowering your heating bill.

More than this efficiency, however, is the experience they offer. We can program them to open with the first morning light, close when it's time for dinner, and lower in the media room when you press 'Movie Night.' Personalization is the essential ingredient to creating the best in smart home living.

Can curtains be motorized?

Because the term "motorized shade" is so ubiquitous, many people believe this is the only style of window covering that can be automated. Technology, however, has advanced far beyond that, enabling automated blinds and even custom window coverings for hard-to-reach skylights and today's unique architectural windows.

At Total Home Technologies, we partner with industry leaders in residential shading systems. Some offer custom motorized draperies designed from your chosen materials to align beautifully with your home's aesthetics. 

The available materials in shades have also transformed what's possible. Today's light-filtering technology and sustainable eco-materials provide the beauty of diffuse sunlight while retaining your home's privacy. 

Embracing Automated Technology

It's believed that one day, manual shades will be an object relegated to history books, like light switches and traditional phones. Are you ready to embrace the continuously evolving smart home revolution? Motorized window treatments are a great place to start.
