A Closer Look at Battery-Operated and Hardwired Shades
Lutron has been innovating how we see home lighting since they patented the first dimmer switch in 1959. Since then, they have revolutionized lighting design with not only enhanced dimmer technology but also automated lighting and shading solutions that integrate with your changing lifestyle needs.
Now, Lutron is slowly making the manual shades we all grew up with feel obsolete. In 1993, the company patented its first shading offering, the base-model Serena. With one button, Serena’s “smart” microprocessor-controlled system scrolled from shade to shade, and early users marveled at the Quiet Electronic Drive technology. You could choose from four fabric options.
Fast forward nearly two decades, and you’ll see that Lutron’s motorized shades have come a long way, giving us almost too many design and fabric options to choose from. Though picking automated draperies for your Fayetteville, AR, home feels daunting at first, selecting between wired and wireless shades is an excellent launchpad. Which offering suits your home and budget needs better? We think you’ll know by the time you’ve finished reading.
