How Do They Work?

Let’s start with the basics. Motorization tilts the louvers on your shutters. They adjust fully open, closed, or anywhere in between in an instant. This could be at your request or on an automated schedule you set.

Just imagine enjoying daylighting, and maintaining privacy, as you get ready in the morning. And think about how nice it would be to never have to feel like you’re living in a cave. East-facing windows automatically adjust closed in the morning to block intense sunshine and heat while west-facing windows bring in comfortable light. Then, as the sun shifts, so do your motorized shutters!

When afternoon sunshine is at its peak, the louvers on west-facing windows close to keep hot temps out while those on your east-facing windows open again. As you go about your day, your home conducts a symphony of perfect privacy, energy-efficiency, and light control.


What Are My Options for Control?
