To make your life easier
With today’s innovative motorized window coverings, you can move your shades according to schedules you set—day or night, whether you’re home or away. You can also operate your shades with your voice, tablet, smartphone or remote control. Many of the motorized products are compatible with smart-home systems for the ultimate in convenience.
Ruffell & Brown is a leader in the industry for motorized shades. We can motorize everything from skylight shades to draperies along with cellular, roman, and roller shades – just to name a few! We make motorization easy by taking care of everything so all you have to do is push a button (or ask Alexa) and enjoy your shades! Motorization is a great option for any window covering, and in particular for areas that are hard to reach such as behind your sofa or bathtub, or above your kitchen sink or front door.
Want to control your shades with a remote? A wall switch? Your phone? Alexa or Google Home? No problem! We’ve got all the options covered. How about letting the sun control your shades? You can do that, too. You can even go solar to recharge the shade’s batteries. Because these automated shades operate with a motor you get a clean, uncluttered, 100% child safe look without any cords or chains. Stunningly beautiful, light filtering or blackout, custom-made shades that are energy efficient, child safe, and operate with the push of a button… You’ll be the envy of your neighborhood!
Whether you need one blind, a wall of windows, or any entire house automated, adding motorization to your window coverings will make life’s tasks a little easier. Apart from convenience, they give you control over the amount of light that enters your home while controlling the view and saving money on energy costs. Automated window coverings provide convenient solutions for day-to-day living. At the touch of a button, window coverings can be instantly adjusted for a change of activity or the varying sun conditions allowing you more control over heat, glare and privacy.
Most types of window coverings can be motorized including horizontal blinds, cellular shades, roller shades, Roman shades, draperies, top-down shades, Silhouette®, Luminette ® and skylight shades. Depending on the type of window covering and the automation system used, the motor can be used to raise, lower, tilt, or draw the window covering.
Here are just a few benefits of motorizing your window coverings:
You can easily adjust large, tall and hard-to-reach window coverings such as those on skylights, transom windows and windows over bathtubs. You can also uniformly raise and lower multiple shades at once.
Motorized shades allow you to easily control glare on television or computer screens in media rooms and offices. You can save money on your energy bills with motorized window coverings as they can automatically adjust to accommodate the sun’s angle. You will be able to enjoy the sunlight and view or create a relaxing environment with total privacy – from any room in your home.
Motorized window coverings simplify the protection of valuable furnishings from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays as you can schedule them to open and close throughout the day. These systems allow those with physical challenges to independently control the amount of light in their home and they eliminate dangling cords in rooms where child and pet safety are important.
