We have big news. Motorized shutters are finally here! Ever since modern tech started upgrading window coverings, we’ve been waiting for it to pair up with the classic elegance of plantation shutters. Well, the wait is over. Our Palm Beach shutters from Hunter Douglas are now available with power! As with any new innovation, we’re sure your head is swimming with questions. So, here are the answers to some of the most-asked questions about motorized shutters.
How Exactly Do They Work?
With motorized shutters, motorization tilts the louvers. At your request, they’ll adjust open, closed, and everywhere in between. You can even program them to move automatically on a schedule. You’ll never have to feel like you’re living in a cave again! Just imagine…
As the sun rises, the louvers on your east-facing windows adjust closed while those facing west tilt open to let in comfortable light. You go about your morning routine with perfect daylighting and just enough privacy. And, your home is protected from intense sunshine and heat during the morning hours. Then, as the sun moves, your shutters do too! In the afternoon, the louvers on your west-facing close as your east-facing windows open up again. Hot temps stay out, and beautiful light comes in. It’s a gorgeous symphony of energy efficiency, privacy, view, and light control!
How Do I Control Them?
The quick answer: any way you want! Control your motorized shutters with your voice, smartphone, favorite device, and remote. Standing right next to them? You can even move the louvers manually without engaging the motor. Simple, convenient control is the name of the game. And, to really make your life easier, create an automatic schedule of adjustments. Set it, forget it, and enjoy the perfect atmosphere day-in and day-out.
Which Rooms Are They Best For?
Our Palm Beach Polysatin collection was created for beautiful styling and durability. So, you can put them in any room where you want the contemporary look of white shutters. Door handle cutouts, split tilt design options, and custom sizing makes them frame nicely everywhere you’d want them.
