Encore sheds light on the advantages of Crestron shade solutions

Summer is almost here, which means there’s no better time than now to tame your environment!


Remote controlled shades (manufactured by Crestron and installed by Encore Custom Audio Video) provide beauty, luxury and exceptional quality. If you haven’t experienced the convenience of shades operating by remote control, you have yet to discover what technology integration can do for your day-to-day living. More than that, however, just imagine the different ways this simple upgrade can affect the way you live:


Crestron Roman

Comfort: Reduce the mid-day heat by filtering the daylight that enters your room. Reduce cooling costs by lowering the shades in the summer. When you stop the sun’s rays from heating up a room, you prevent the air conditioning from working overtime. Raise them during the winter to help capture heat from those selfsame rays and lower heating costs.

Crestron Drapery Track

Convenience: Block the distracting glare from intrusive sunlight with the press of one convenient button. Use the remote control to adjust your shades from anywhere in the room.

Crestron Roller Shades

Privacy: Increase your solitude by covering that high window in the foyer. The shade motors are battery powered, making them ideal for hard-to-reach windows.
