Shades

Effortlessly control natural light, save energy, and increase privacy with motorized shades and drapery. JRC Audio&Video Inc. is proud to represent the Crestron family of motorized roller shades, drapery track systems, skylight shades, and Roman shades. Crestron drapery and shade systems offer near silent operation, large selection of fabrics, and precision. Thanks to smart design, the shades and drapery move smoothly, in unison, and with exact alignment.

You are given much flexibility of drapery / shade control options to suit your lifestyle. Often, the drapery / shade controls are integrated within another interface, such as a lighting control keypad. This eliminates unnecessary wall clutter and simplifies operation. After all, lighting control systems and shades & drapery are controlling the same thing…light. The shade & drapery control buttons are backlit and engraved for intuitive use. Preset buttons instantly recall your favorite shade or drapery position, and these keypads are available in a wide variety of styles, colors, and finishes to complement your decor.

Since home automation control systems are very popular today, often the shade & drapery controls are integrated within a home control’s touchscreen. This further eliminates wall clutter…putting all of your home’s subsystem controls (lighting, music, climate, security, etc.) within combined, intuitive touchscreen controls.  Using the internal “smarts” of a home automation system, your shades or drapery can open and close automatically based on an event such as your home reaching a preset temperature, thereby saving energy. Smart home control systems even know, based on your home’s location, where the sun is and can lower blinds or close drapery to protect the home from unwanted heat gain and to protect fabrics from sun damage.
