3 Things You Might Not Know About Crestron Motorized Shading

Crestron Shading Is the Perfect Complement to a Crestron Smart Home

3 Things You Might Not Know About Crestron Motorized Shading

We love motorized shades at GHT Group, and it shows in the many blogs we’ve written about them. But there are some shades we haven't written too much about, those from our home automation partner Crestron. As GHT Group has been in audiovisual and smart home technology for over three decades, we are a long-time Crestron dealer. Crestron is a bit like Apple in that they make high-end solutions in all the major product categories – home automation in this case – and when they do something, they do it right. 

If you’re considering a Crestron smart home system or looking to upgrade an existing one, there are several excellent reasons to consider Crestron motorized shading for your Cumming, GA residence. Let’s go into it more below!

Upgrade from Manual Shades

Did you know that you can upgrade your manual shades to motorized with Crestron? And that you can use your existing fabric and hardware? Crestron makes unique adjustable brackets that can fit just about any window. The process only takes a few minutes for each window. This level of versatility is not something you see every day.

What if you want to change out the look of your current window treatments? Crestron recently upgraded their selection of fabrics and colors and have put the samples in two new books called the Heritage and Designer collections. Looking at these new materials on a website doesn't do them justice; you and your designer should be able to feel the material quality with the physical swatches in the books, which will be available early next year. The new colors and selections for sheer, light-filtering, and blackout materials should please design-conscious homeowners. 

Simple and Reliable

Crestron is known for vertical integration, where it makes all the components of the systems it sells. Crestron shade motors conform to their elevated quality standards, with brushless designs that are ultra-quiet and highly reliable. So reliable, in fact, that Crestron backs the shade motors and power supplies with lifetime warranties. This excellent warranty should assure you that you’re buying a top-quality solution. 

Powered By Crestron Home

Perhaps the best reason to go with Crestron motorized shading is the seamless control and integration you get with Crestron Home. The Crestron Home smart automation system gives you flexible control over your shading with smartphone apps, elegant programmable keypads, touchscreen controllers, and even your Mac laptop! In addition, you can make your shades work seamlessly with lighting, temperature control, ceiling fans, and other smart home functions. And Crestron Home lets you customize your system to the Nth degree with user profiles, custom scenes, and more for the ultimate smart home experience.
