For those who have yet to experience motorized window coverings, it can be difficult to imagine the incredible convenience and beauty they offer. They raise and lower with the touch of a button or a voice command. Strategically placed sensors and programmed schedules also prompt them to open and close throughout the day automatically.
These shades may rise in the bedroom, gently waking you with the first morning light. When evening approaches, they close throughout your home, providing privacy. During the day, they lower when direct sunlight beams through windows, protecting your home from the damaging effects of UV rays. This, and so much more, is possible with smart window treatments.
At Advanced Premises Systems, we partner with industry leaders to offer our clients the best there is in home automation. One of these brands is Lutron, world-renowned for its automated lighting and shading solutions. In 2017, they came out with one of our clients’ favorite custom motorized shades—the Palladiom Shading System.
Let’s explore what this system offers homes in Brookhaven, GA, and why it’s become one of the most popular window coverings.

The Palladiom Shading System offers the trending sleek, sophisticated, modern design of exposed roller shades. These superior-quality shades are designed without a pocket, fascia, or recess and come with aluminum hand-finished brackets in seven curated finishes, including satin nickel, pure white, and black and clear anodized. When integrated into a window recess or frame, it appears to be floating in midair.
Lutron’s patented Intelligent Hembar Alignment ensures synchronized automated shades, perfectly aligned when moving or at rest. This feature creates beautiful control of daylight and can integrate with your lighting system to optimize your home’s interiors, day or night.
While wired motorized shades are ideal for new builds and major remodels, they can be challenging for homes looking to upgrade their window coverings. We were excited to see Lutron address this issue, coming out with a wire-free Palladiom option in 2021.
This system runs on six D-cell batteries and uses an active energy optimization system that extends the life of the batteries to 3-5 years. Since 1993, Lutron's shades have been known for their ground-breaking heard-but-not-seen technology and whisper-quiet performance.
These shades can be controlled from exquisite glass, metal, or matte custom-engraved in-wall keypads in finishes that match the shades and your home’s aesthetics. When integrated with Lutron Homeworks or Control4 home automation, you can also manage your shades with a smartphone app, voice, or user-friendly touchscreen. This same platform controls your lighting, climate, entertainment, and security, offering seamless integration.
At Advanced Premises Systems, our team of certified Lutron and Control4 programmers ensures unsurpassed quality and the highest standards in the industry. For over 23 years, Gus Cueto, a licensed professional engineer, and his staff have been creating smart homes that define luxury living.
