4 Reasons Why Motorized Shades Are a Great Investment


Convenience is Just the Start

To say that Nevada is a sunny place is an understatement. While letting in natural light into your homes is a boon to well-being and makes your home more aesthetically pleasing, too much of a good thing sometimes isn’t all good.

With the high heat of the desert summer, window coverings are essential to filter sunlight and limit heat gain so HVAC systems don’t have to work as hard to cool your home. But we don’t want to live in caves either. What’s the solution? Motorized shades are the ideal way to manage natural light and both harness and limit the power of the sun. And they also have additional advantages you might not have thought about too. Read below to see how motorized shades can benefit your Las Vegas home in four key ways.

Discover Why Lutron Motorized Shades Are a Cut Above the Rest


Lutron Deftly Blends Function, Form, and Control

In Henderson and the Las Vegas area, managing the sun is a very real issue. The Nevada desert summer is long, and almost 300 days of sunshine a year has an effect on home interiors.

With traditional manual window treatments, you need to manage heat buildup in your home to keep your utility bills within reason when it’s 100 degrees and sunny outside. Motorized shades make that a snap, so you can control the sun and also enjoy the natural light at the right times of the day. Your home can always have the perfect blend of natural and artificial light along with energy efficiency. Motorized shading is one of those things that, once experienced, you never want to go back to whatever came before.

As we speak about managing light, one name stands out: Lutron. The company’s mission is all about managing light for comfort, aesthetics, energy efficiency, and wellness. One of the product pillars that supports that mission is motorized shading. Keep reading below to learn how Lutron motorized shades and window treatments stand out from the pack.

Remember the commercials for the Clapper, the lighting control switch activated by clapping?

As your local Las Vegas, NV Lutron dealer, we’d like to give you a few other reasons why Lutron lighting control is a great investment for your home.

3 Ways a Smart Home Can Change Your Life


Most things around you are pretty intelligent. Your phone is smart. Your kids are smart. Why not your home? Transform your Henderson, Nevada house with smart home control so that life becomes more convenient, safe and almost worry-free. In this edition of our blog we’ll cover three ways a smart home can keep you and your family safe, add convenience, and save you time.

No More Fumbling with Keys

Doors sitting on hinges aren’t all the clever, but there’s something we can do to change that. Wireless door locks add incredible convenience to your home and when integrated with a Crestron® control system, allow doors to be locked and unlocked from any touch screen in the house or remotely using your smart phone. No more leaving keys under door mats or waiting around for service providers because with a simple tap of a button you can lock or unlock doors to let people into your home.

By teaching your connected objects to work together, your smart home can automatically react to your routines and preferences. Automate lights to turn on as you move throughout your house, trigger the coffee maker to start brewing the moment you wake up, and start your day off on the right foot.
