Motorized Shades Offer Effortless Control of Daylight and Privacy

Lutron's Elegant Wireless Palladiom Line Is the Perfect Solution for Existing Homes

Imagine waking up to the first rays of sunshine peering in through shades slowly rising. As the day progresses, your window coverings automatically raise and lower, letting in the diffuse light of the sun that brings beauty and natural light while limiting the direct UV rays that harm furniture and floors. Your electric light responds, dimming and brightening based on the available daylight. When it’s time for the family dinner, one tap on a touchscreen lowers the shades in perfect unison, offering privacy. 

A life of luxury. 

Motorized shades offer ease of living and convenience once unimaginable. No more pulling on cords to close shades when the sun shines on your computer screen or missing another sunset because you’re preoccupied. We can program shades to raise and lower based on preset schedules or set up sensors that detect changes in temperature and direct sunlight. The result is the perfect environment and level of light throughout the day. 

Even better? Today’s motorized shades come in numerous styles and over 1,000 fabrics, enhancing any home’s aesthetics. At Barrett’s Technology Solutions, we partner with Lutron, the industry leader in lighting and shade control. Let’s look at one of their most popular motorized shades—the Palladiom line—and what it can offer your home in Chicago, IL.

The Palladiom Line

In 2017, Lutron came out with their popular Palladiom line, an exposed shade representing the pinnacle of performance and design. This wired solution offers a sleek and sophisticated design without a fascia, pocket, or recess, blending into and adding to any home’s aesthetics. The shade appears to float in midair when integrated into a frame or window recess. 

The balanced bottom rail also provides an elegant touch, and the patented Intelligent Hembar Alignment synchronizes all shades, maintaining the alignment within 1/8-inch during motion and at rest. Shades that raise and lower in perfect unison add an incredibly graceful and sophisticated element to your home.

These shades can cover a 12 x 12-foot window and raise and lower in near silence, thanks to Lutron’s industry-leading whisper-quiet motors. The beautiful brackets come in seven hand-finished materials, concealing the programming buttons and indicator LEDs. 

The Palladiom Wire-Free Shading System

In 2021, Lutron debuted its wireless Palladiom shading solution. These shades run on Active Energy Optimization, a patent-pending battery management system that extends the D-cell battery’s life to 3-5 years. 

This eliminates the need for pre-wiring, allowing these shades to be installed at any point, even after construction. Now, we can bring beautiful daylight control and privacy to any room at any time. These shades are available in a wide variety of fabrics, including room darkening, translucent, and sheer opacities. 

Lutron also offers many other motorized window coverings, including honeycomb cellular shades, roman shades, wooden blinds, horizontal sheer blinds, and draperies.

At Barrett’s Technology Solutions, we take the time to understand our client’s unique needs and then use the latest technology to create customized solutions that enhance their everyday lives.
