PowerShades is an industry-leading provider of manual and automated window shades for residential, commercial, and hospitality applications. The shades are both manual and motorized, interior and exterior, providing the perfect product for the traditionalist or the homeowner/business owner who wants to create a “smart” environment. 

PowerShades differentiates itself from its competitors in many ways, but primarily it is the fact that the company was founded specifically to provide motorized window treatments. While most companies simply offer a motorized version of their window coverings, PowerShades designed its smart, motorized shades from the ground up. As they explain on their website, “We think, work, and design with technology in mind from the start – a fresh take on a standard item in a world increasingly filled with fun and functional automation.”

PowerShades sells its customizable, motorized shades exclusively through its custom installer network. The company’s shades work with all of the major home automation system manufacturers, including Control4, Crestron, URC, RTI, Amazon Alexa, PoE Texas, Savant, and Google Home. The company makes window treatments affordable for the average homeowner, as well as easy to order and simple to install/operate.

In 2019, PowerShades also developed the industry’s first and only TruePoE (Power over Ethernet) motorized roller shades. PowerShades’ new PoE automated window shades offer all of the benefits of the company’s ground-breaking RF automated shades, along with a number of additional advantages not found in any other type of motorized shade. Customers have the option of adding a PoE motor to any of PowerShades’ motorized products.
