Battery-Powered
Shades to Portfolio
Featuring native integration with the
Crestron Home platform, new window
treatments expand dealer options
and are augmented by 240 new fabric
choices. By Robert Archer
CRESTRON ELECTRONICS
has announced the expansion
of its custom shade
portfolio with the addition
of Crestron Battery-Powered
Shades.
The shades offer homeowners
a shading solution
that natively integrates
into the Crestron Home
platform to provide a home
shading solution that works
in concert with other smart
home endpoints throughout
the home. Crestron's shading
portfolio now includes wired,
wireless, and battery-powered
options giving homeowners
the ability to have
intelligent shading solutions
integrated into almost any
space, meaning dealers will
not have to rely on multiple
manufacturers to outfit a
home, whether for a new
build or a retrofit.
" Battery-Powered Shades
represent an important milestone
for the Crestron Home
platform, we are now able
to offer a complete solution
that meets all the needs of
22 | CE Pro January 2022
homeowners, " states John
Clancy, executive vice president,
Residential, Crestron.
" Dealers no longer have to
piecemeal a system together
if there is a window located
in an awkward location
where wires can't be run. The
robust control options within
Crestron Home coupled with
our new fabric options make
our entire shading portfolio
an incredibly attractive solution
for dealers and homeowners
alike. "
The company points out
that over the years motorized
shading has presented
dealers with several problems
that are associated
with cross-manufacturer
integration that limits homeowner
control.
Crestron emphasizes
that its portfolio of shading
options changes that by
offering a holistic hardware
and software ecosystem that
goes beyond the superficial
control provided by
mismatched systems. At
the touch of a button, the
The new Battery-Powered Shades can be easily synced with
other Crestron systems in a home and adjusted by owners in
the Crestron Home UI.
N.J.-based company says,
homeowners can configure,
schedule, or execute a
shading scene that synchronizes
shading throughout the
house with other Crestron
Home solutions, including
the Horizon Thermostat,
and third-party extensions
to maximize homeowners'
comfort and security.
As part of the native
integration with Crestron
Home, battery life will be
intelligently calculated to
proactively notify homeowners
when they need to
replace the battery. Though
discreetly tucked in the fascia,
the Crestron-designed
battery cartridge swings
down to make replacement
easy. The battery can be
replaced like most consumer
devices, and the shades
can be snapped back into
place, with no disassembly
required. Whisper-quiet and
energy-efficient QMT motors
bring great indoor range
and performance.
An updated collection of
over 400 fabrics, including
240 new designer-lead fabric
choices provides dealers and
their clients with a choice of
design-friendly and customizable
style options.
Contained within Crestron's
new design book
collection, these fabrics
and Crestron's custom-color
match policy further
improve customer choice,
and Crestron notes the
Battery-Powered Shades are
available with both Architectural
and D├ęcor brackets.
