Motorized shades not only make a home more livable and comfortable, they also provide UV protection and lower energy costs. InTech offers the design, installation and integration of elegant ultra-quiet motorized shades or drapery systems which are typically controlled via the lighting system or home control system. With a wide variety of designer fabric choices, unique expertise in the design of motorized window treatments, and skillful technology integration, InTech can take you from conception to completion on any shading or drapery project.
There are a wide variety of drapery / shade control options to suit your needs and lifestyle. Often, the drapery / shade controls are integrated within another interface, such as a lighting control keypad. This eliminates unnecessary wall clutter and simplifies operation. After all, lighting control systems and shades & drapery are controlling the same thing…light. The shade & drapery control buttons are backlit and engraved for intuitive use. Preset buttons instantly recall your favorite shade or drapery position, and these keypads are available in a wide variety of styles, colors, and finishes to complement your décor.
Since home automation control systems are very popular today, often the shade & drapery controls are integrated within your control’s touchscreen. This further eliminates wall clutter…putting all of your home’s subsystem controls (lighting, music, climate, security, etc.) within combined, intuitive touchscreen controls. Using the internal “smarts” of a home automation system, your shades or drapery can open and close automatically based on an event such as your home reaching a preset temperature, thereby saving energy. Smart home control systems even know (based on your home’s location) where the sun is located in the sky at any given moment and can lower blinds or close drapery to protect the home from unwanted heat gain and to protect fabrics from sun damage.
