This includes a wide range of treatments and applications from roman shades and drapery, to awnings, pergolas, and rolling shutters. The integration not only includes access to shading systems with conversational voice commands, but also automation capabilities based on factors like time of day and climate conditions to ensure a client’s surroundings receive the proper exposure to daylight.
