Automated Window Shades

Imagine never having to deal with that annoying glare from the afternoon sun on your TV screen, or avoiding working up a sweat thanks to the late afternoon sun beating down on the kitchen while you prepare dinner.

With electronic drive Solar Shades, you can have your window treatments programmed to automatically drop when the sun glares and come back up in the evening so you can enjoy the night sky. Keeping the temperature even all day long means spending less money heating and cooling your home.

Enhanced UV Protection

Sun-fading of fine furniture or architectural surfaces is also no longer an issue, as UV protection is one of the main selling features, and no one enjoys an exercise program of running around the house opening and closing shades twice a day, an activity that is impossible if you are not home. AVT features:


  • Sheer shades to reduce glare while maintaining view.
  • Translucent shades to keep much of the visible light while adding privacy and UV/heat protection.
  • Blackout shades for complete darkness in bedrooms and home theaters.
  • Dual roller shades for areas where you have more than one type of need.
  • Fully recessed pocket shades or fabric wrapped fascias to match your style or décor.
  • Battery operated shades for retrofit applications where wiring isn't possible.
  • Drapery track, roman shades, honeycomb and even venetian blinds are also available.


With a such variety of styles and solutions to choose from, AVT has something to meet the automated window treatment needs of just about everyone.

Custom motorized shades can also be integrated into your lighting control or complete home automation system. They can be designed to raise and lower based on time, temperature, or occupancy. Our shades are quiet, synchronized, and attractive, with the most up to date styles and fabrics.

Your team was prompt, very attentive to details, and of great help to me as one who appreciates a fine audio/visual system, but who is not very knowledgeable about the electronics involved.
