So Why Aren’t Smart Shades More Popular?

The Problem

Motorized window shades have been around for decades and the benefits are well understood. Homeowners and builders install automated window shades for four primary reasons – Privacy, Convenience, Comfort, and Savings. And while there are many ways to automate window shades, blinds, and curtains, the cost and convenience of doing so have been a significant hurdle for mass adoption. Another challenge for customers is that most homeowners already have manual window shades installed and there are very few retrofit solutions on the market to automate them.
