It used to be quite expensive to have motorized shades installed in your home. $1500 to $2000 for a normal window was not unheard of. Fortunately, motorization has come a long way. Gone are the days of hardwiring a home's electricity to a shade —you can now buy shades with built in battery powered motors at an affordable price that install cleanly and operate via remote control. Best of all, if you are willing to roll up your sleeves a little, they can be purchased starting at just a just a couple hundred each, and you can install them yourself. Check out our Advantage Solar Shades: The motors are installed inside of the roller bar of the shade. On the side of the shade you will have a small charging receptacle that can be attached to a charger that simply plugs into your home outlet. A full charge will last about 3 months before having to be charged again. You can choose to have a single remote for your shades, a six channel remote, or a 16 channel remote. One channel can control several shades at a time or you can program the shade remote to operate each shade on its own channel if you opt for the multi-channel remote. We offer these motorized solar shades in a variety of openness from 3% to 14% sunscreen material that will block 80% to 97% of UV rays.
