How about added ambiance? Maybe you can convince them of the convenience automatic shades offer. Or maybe you could talk to them about the added safety and security shades can provide.


The good news is that with residential shading solutions from Lutron, you don’t have to choose—you can offer “all of the above!”

Energy Efficiency

A good shading system can save your clients more energy than they’ll save with routine use of shades. A “winter warm” setting opens shades and takes advantage of sunlight warming a southern façade. A “summer cool” setting does the opposite by lowering shades and blocking solar, which reduces cooling costs.

Function AND Style

But shading systems from Lutron are much more than functional. They’re designed to look and work beautifully. Stylish control and fabric options coupled with innovative technology elegantly transition a space to create the right amount of light for any activity. Shades align precisely within 1/16 in of each other for a balanced, beautiful look to a row of windows.

Of course your customers don’t want to run all over the house to adjust shades all the time. Shading systems can be controlled by keypads, IR remote controls, wireless tabletop controls, or by setting them to an astronomic time clock for automatic adjustment of shades.

Safety and Security

One of the extra benefits of an automated shading system that your customers may not think about is the safety and security they provide. They can take advantage of a whole-home shading system for simultaneous control of all their shades—choosing a pre-determined “Away” setting to close at a specific time when they’re out of the house. That way they can close all shades and restrict the view inside their home when nobody is there.

Shades can offer additional savings beyond the money your customers save on energy. By installing shading systems they can protect furniture, fine art, rugs, and even wood surfaces, from damaging UV rays.


There are a lot of reasons why a Lutron shading solution may be great for your customers. Don’t you just love multiple choices?
