Motorized window treatments are becoming more and more popular, and rightfully so. They are convenient, safer (as they make dangerous cords obsolete), efficient and offer ease and accessibility.

Here are 5 of the most common ways you can enjoy and conveniently control your motorized window treatments.

Hand held Controller  

A hand-held controller can be used to control your motorized shades, drapes, or interior shutters.

With a simple touch of a button, you can control your window treatments with ease. Some remotes allow you to when control more than one window treatment at a time from any room, and even program each treatment to your favorite setting.

Hand-held controllers are also a great option as many of the partners we work with, such as Somfy and Hunter Douglas offer a variety of colors and styles for you to choose from!

Wall Switch

Afraid you may misplace a handheld controller? Do you prefer having a static device that’s always in place when you need it? Consider a wall switch option!

Wall switches are often used with hard-wired window treatments, but some manufactures offer wireless battery operated wall switches.

With many styles and colors available, you will not have to worry about your wall switch clashing with your existing décor.

On The Go/ Remotely

Are you always abroad? Or do you sometimes realize you forgot to close your shades once you’ve already left your hole or office? Have no fear, remote control is here!

Control your shades from anywhere in the world with your smart phone or tablet. Whether are you in another room, state, or country you can adjust your window treatments to let in or block out light, add privacy, or protect your interiors from harmful UV rays and excess heat.
