You can choose between hardwired solutions for new constructions or renovations, or go for plug-in systems that are a bit easier to retrofit but just as powerful. One of our consultant’s expertise will guide you through this journey, ensuring a smooth integration.

Little Fun Fact: Wired window treatments are surprisingly energy-efficient, hardly making a dent in your utility bills. Plus, with smart sensors, they can even help you save on heating and cooling.

Battery Power: Freedom and Flexibilitybuilt-in rechargeable battery for blinds

For those seeking a cordless experience, battery-powered options offer elegance without the need for direct wiring. Choose between built-in rechargeable batteries for a sleek look, external non-rechargeable for simplicity, or external rechargeable batteries for the best of both worlds. Each has its perks, with variations in longevity and power to match every need.

Last but certainly not least, solar-powered treatments are perfect for the eco-conscious and those with sun-drenched windows. A discreet solar panel keeps the batteries charged, offering a green and efficient alternative for lighter window coverings.

Control and Operation: The Cherry on Top

No matter the power source, controlling these window wizards is a breeze. RF remotes offer freedom to adjust from across the room, while wall switches, timers, and sun sensors add layers of automated convenience. And for the tech-savvy, integrating with your smart home system allows voice commands to control the light of your life.
