Motorized Shades Simply Modern and Automated for Your Lifestyle

SHADES ARE CUSTOM DESIGNED AND FITTED EXACTLY TO YOUR WINDOWS

Motorized Shades Simply Modern and Automated for Your Lifestyle

The Motorized shading industry is competitive, however that only means the prices are better and the options are endless.

Options for length, colors samples, materials and style that are simple, elegant, clean and sophisticated.

Fully customized motorized shades that you can control from your Home Automation system or a smart device.

There are options to have pockets built that way the shades are not visible. Simple and elegant design exposes no wires or motors.  We can coordinate with your contractor or carpenter to have that all taken care of for you.

We come in to prewire the shades, install the shades, and do all the measuring for the shades and fabric, so the only thing you have to worry about is if you would like to create a scene to incorporate shades opening up during certain time of day, or enjoy the simplicity of pressing goodnight and the shades close automatically.

The motorized shading solutions that we recommend are the following:

SAVANT SHADES

Simply modern and automated for your lifestyle.

The intuitive Savant Pro App lets you control your shades with the touch of a button or a simple voice command. Create scenes and schedules with ease.

Why Savant Shades?

SAVANT SHADES ARE CUSTOM DESIGNED AND FITTED EXACTLY TO YOUR WINDOWS

Create scenes with your shade placement to match time of day, the position of the sun, or to suit your moods. Schedule them for energy efficiency or make your own "Movie Night Scene" that turns on the TV and speakers and closes the shades.

Savant Shades give you the whole package, from beautiful interior design to custom crafted home automation.

TAILORED STYLE AT YOUR CONTROL

Savant Shades are custom built with a modern design aesthetic and meticulously crafted to exacting detail. Shades integrate directly into the Savant Pro system for full automation and control.

LUTRON SHADES

Probably the most popular motorized shading solution available today. It’s an aesthetic and affordable sun-blocking solution that runs on battery powered rollers.

It’s easy to use and the variety of fabrics and materials will help you choose a design that fits your needs. In the package you will get two types of remote controllers, one that works for multiple groups of shades and another one that is designed for a single shade or a group of shades.

Why Lutron Serena?

·         Shades move in perfect unison

·         Battery-powered

·         Quiet-motion

·         3-5 year lifespan

Inspired: Before & After in Historic Beacon Hill

Featured by: New England Home  Magazine: Systems Design Inspired Before & After

The Goal:

Our client wanted to incorporate fine architectural details into his new home, keeping interior design at a high standard, while incorporating a full high-end audio video system for the five-floor historic Beacon Hill house.

The Challenges:

Due to the ceiling height and the layout of the house, we had to design an audio video system in the family room that is not only of high quality, but also keeps aesthetics in mind.  In addition, the interior designer did not want the TV visible, so we installed a custom automated-motorized bracket that, with a remote, would being the screen in and out of a built-in. Keeping in mind the strong emphasis on interior design, the client still wanted a great-sounding subwoofer, so we installed two in-ceiling Artison subwoofers that have zero wall vibrations.  In addition, the client wanted to use a finfer as a front door key, which would also serve as an intercom system.  The look had to meet the Beacon Hill historical requirements.

The Design Summary:

Five floors of the house were designed, pre-wired, and installed for whole-house audio, surround sound, home automation, a finger-print door-entry intercom system, and a dedicated media room.  We installed Martin Logan Vanquish in-ceiling speakers through-out, including a waterproof speaker in the master bathroom. We expanded the network for the client to have full coverage throughout the house. The entire AV system was designed and programmed by audio visual designer/owner Angel Centeno and installed by the Systems Design installation technicians.

Savant Home Automation for the Sophisticated User

How Home Builders Can Use Savant Automation Technology to Sell More Homes

Savant Home Automation for the Sophisticated User

As a home builder in Boston and greater New England, you’re creating the walls that a family will live, laugh, and love in for many years. Often times though, that family will be diverse in their needs and wants, as will the next family that lives in that home.

Savant control systems can help everyone in the family live their lives more happily and safely and is one of our most elegant, yet user-friendly, products that we represent. Learn more about our smart home automation features below: Mom can use Savant Metropolitan home lighting control to set “scenes” for different situations. If she's in the bath after a long day, programmers can create a “Spa” scene for her. If she’s hosting an elegant dinner party, she can create a romantic and intimate “Dinner Party” scene all by herself. Dad can make sure his family is safe from harm from intruders with state-of-the-art security and surveillance systems. In addition, lighting systems can automatically be set to turn on and off throughout the day to make it seem like the family is home even if they're on vacation. When Grandma visits, she’ll easily be able to control the thermostat to her liking in her private guest room, as the elderly often prefer much warmer temperatures. When the kids want to watch a movie during a slumber party or have a karaoke competition with the stereo system, they can seamlessly enjoy the systems while keeping the party going.

Troubleshooting and switching cords will be a thing of the past with their new Savant system Whether you’re a builder that builds one ornate and custom home a year, or a builder that constructs 100 homes a year, we have a place for you at System Design & Integration. Savant packages start below $1,000, yet you as the builder won’t have to do any of the work- we will program and install your Savant control systems within your designed home. Savant is a luxury control system in home automation that will dramatically increase the perceived and real value with current clients and prospective buyers. Not only will the potential homeowner be thrilled that their home is a coveted smart home, but you will also have an opportunity to upsell them with dedicated media rooms, whole home audio adding extra security cameras, and many other options.
