Crestron Shades – Are They Right for You?

Starpower Crestron Shades - Are They Right For You?

Are Crestron Shades Right for You?

If you’ve read our Home Theater Guide or Media Room Guide, you know the importance of having amazing shades in your home.  Crestron makes life super easy with their automated lighting solutions. Not only are these shades gorgeous, but they’re smart! Doesn’t get much better than that.

 

Why Shades? Comfort & Convenience

Imagine opening or closing an entire wall of window treatments at the touch of a button — it’s possible with Crestron shading solutions. Presets can ensure the perfect amount of light is allowed in throughout the day, creating rooms that are always as cool, comfortable and bright as you want them to be. One touch, from within your home or away from it, can recall the perfect lighting schemes for entertaining, relaxing, reading, watching TV or shutting everything off just before bed.

 

Types of Shades:

Roller Shades

Crestron-Roller-Shades-By-Starpower

Sleek and elegant rollar shades are a popular choice for their versatility and variety of styles. With silent QMT™ motors and the ability to hide rollers out of sight, this type of shade can be discreetly integrated into any décor. Create curtain walls by coupling up to six shades as a single group with one Crestron QMT™ motor, or choose larger tube and bracket sizes to accomodate more expansive windows. Dual roller shades can also deliver both light-filtering and blackout shades on the same window for multiple purposes within one room.

Roman Shades

Crestron-Roman-Smart-Home-Shades-By-Starpower

Roman shades add visual impact to a room, with different fabrics, pleats, and folds creating unique aesthetic statements. Whether you want a more regal look, something traditional, or even a more modern flair, there’s a roman shade style to suit your taste.

Skylight Shades

Crestron-Sky-Light-Shades-By-Starpower

Easily control the sunlight streaming through your skylights with automated shades. Crestron provides skylight shading systems with hidden cable guides to maximize window area, allowing natural light in while keeping unsightly cables out of the way. Skylight shades can be mounted outside, inside, or recessed for added flexibility.

Drapery Track

Crestron-Smart-Home-Drapery-Track-By-Starpower

Draperies add a soft, graceful touch to your décor. Control pinch pleat, Ripplefold® and Accordia® styles on straight, curved, bent, and custom tracks to suit your unique environment. Even details such as motor, arm, and draw styles can be fine-tuned for touch sensitive controls, adjustable speed settings, and soft starts and stops, adding an element of dramatic motion to your window treatments.

The Convenience of Home Automation

How often do you find yourself holding and fumbling through all of the TV remotes to adjust the sound, push play or simply fast forward? It becomes a balancing act just to watch a Friends” re-run because you have a remote in your left hand, in your right hand and one on each leg.

When you invest in home automation, you are investing in streamlined control – which means a kick ass remote that can control all of your devices. And it doesn’t stop there –  control your window shades, interior and exterior lights, security cameras, door locks and more from your ipad or smart phone.

Take the New Year’s Challenge: GET ORGANIZED!

Starpower Take The New Year’s Challenge: Get Organized!

Do you have your New Year’s resolutions ready?  I have talked to so many people who have one simple resolution they are gearing up for in 2012: to get organized. What they want and desire is to get control of their life and make things simpler.

Let’s start with the devices in your life. If you are anything like me you probably have separate controls for everything — one for the television, one for the ceiling fan, and one for the DVD player.  You probably also have separate wall units for the air conditioner, garage door, security system….and the list goes on and on. We have all heard of the Universal Remote, but this only eliminates the audio and video remote controls. What if there was a single control panel that could operate and control everything in your life? Oh wait! There is!

Turn your home into a smarthome with Crestron home automation.  Crestron offers one of the beset home automation systems in the market and can help you to control every electronic device in your life with one simple panel. The Crestron home automation panel solves your headache and allows you turn everything on or off with one simple to use control system. With a Crestron home automation panel you can control your security system, lighting, air conditioning, garage door, music media, sound system, television, and DVD/Blu-Ray system.

Beyond the idea that with one remote you can control all of these features is the fact that you can choose to mount this device on the wall (where it could never go missing), you can choose a hand-held panel, or you can download the software to make all of this accessible through your iPhone. Another cool feature about the Crestron home automation system is that YOU choose what to control. You may only want to control your sound system, lights, and security system with your panel, all of that is up to you. The possibilities are endless.

The bottom line is that everyone could use a little simplification in their lives. So if you are tired of searching for the right control, or having to walk through the house to make sure everything is turned off when you leave home, then Crestron home automation system is for you.

Come check out the many home automation options at Starpower entertainment and see what the best home automation system is for your home.  Get controlled, get organized, become the king in your own home for 2012 with a new Smarthome.
