Motorized Shades are electrically operated with a remote. With a touch of a button, the shades open and close or open partially. Unlike blinds, which use the electric motor to tilt the vanes, motorized shades offer a fully open window experience and 'get out of the way' completely.
Products with motorized lift include cellular shades, roller shades, solar screens, woven wood shades, sheer horizontal shades and pleated shades.
The motors inside the shade are operated by your remote control. When ordering a motorized option, you will need to purchase at least one remote control. Typically one remote can operate multiple motorized shades or other types of motorized window treatment for added convenience.
The options and functionality of the motors and remote controls will vary by product and manufacturer, so please read the descriptions on each product page. For example, some remotes operate using infrared or "line of sight" transmission, while others use radio frequency transmission that operate without pointing directly at the shade and can control single shades or groups of shades simultaneously for added convenience.
