How Are Lutron Shades Powered?
Lutron offers two methods for power: wired low-voltage and wireless battery-powered. Because wired systems involve running wire through the home, they’re ideal for new construction and major remodels. If you’re upgrading a few rooms in an existing home with motorized shades, you may prefer a battery-powered solution. Lutron batteries last an impressive 3-5 years, but wired shades eliminate the hassle of ever having to replace batteries. We cover more details about wireless versus wired Lutron shades here.
Do Lutron Shades Work on All Windows?
Lutron shades can be custom-fit to virtually any window in your home. In fact, Lutron roller shades can cover a window opening of up to 12-by-12 feet. Additionally, Lutron motorized drapery systems work on single and multi-bend tracks and allow for tracks up to 30 feet long. Have skylights and angled windows? Lutron tensioned shades keep fabric panels taut and parallel to these windows to reduce light gaps and maximize views when opened by eliminating standard cable guides.
How Do You Control Lutron Shades?
Lutron offers several convenient ways to control your motorized shades. Use the Lutron Connect app, or smart home app like Control4 if your shades are integrated with your home automation system, to operate your shades from anywhere—including away from home. For more tactile control, use Lutron’s customizable wired or wireless wall keypads. Voice control is also a convenient option when your hands are full or your smartphone is out of reach. Lastly, you can program your shades to operate on their own based on time of day or specific events. We cover more details about Lutron shade control options here.
What Are My Options for Fabrics and Colors?
As we mentioned above, Lutron offers over 1,500 materials and fabrics for you to choose from. All fabrics are curated from leading fabric suppliers worldwide and celebrate the forefront of interior design. In short, your options for fabrics, materials, and colors for Lutron roller shades, wood blinds, vertical drapes, tensioned shades, and more are virtually endless. You can also select from sheer, translucent, and room-darkening fabrics depending on your application. We cover more details about Lutron window treatment options here.
Where Can I Buy Lutron Shades?
If you decide to move forward with Lutron battery-powered shades, you can find a wide selection of their wireless shading solutions at stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot. However, if you decide that wired shades are the better solution for your project, you must work with a dedicated Lutron dealer. To guarantee the highest quality possible, only Lutron dealers can sell and install Lutron wired shades.
GHT Group is a Platinum Lutron dealer in Metro Atlanta, and we specialize in both battery-powered and hardwired Lutron shades, as well as Lutron HomeWorks and Radio RA 2 home control systems. For a stress-free installation and long-lasting results, we recommend working with a professional integrator.
