It's easy to take the things we use every day for granted. We get used to the convenience they offer, like the light switches that we flip on in the morning and off when we retire. Miraculously, the lights in our homes respond, enabling us to see in the dark and perform our daily tasks. We no longer need to sit around the hearth for light or place oil lamps around our homes. We’ve come a long way.

Today, lighting offers much more than functional capabilities. At Sierra Integrated Systems, we partner with Lutron, the industry leader in smart lighting.

Window coverings play a significant role in our home’s design. They may create a touch of elegance with long, flowing drapes or enhance our home’s modern design with sophisticated, minimalistic roller shades.

Motorized shades, however, do much more. These shades wake us in the morning, let in the diffuse light of the sun during the day, and ensure we never miss another sunset. They reduce our energy usage, provide safety and security, and automatically lower when it’s movie night. While it may seem almost too good to be true, motorized shades do this and much more. 

Let’s explore how these shades make life a little easier in Crystal Bay, NV.
