Shade & Drape Control
In addition to heating and air conditioning, you can supplement a thermostat with additional products that can be controlled manually or automatically through your home automation system, like shades and drapes. If you have a room that receives sunlight at a particular time during the day, install shades that automatically lower to help keep your home from getting overheated. During the winter, custom programming can raise the shades to catch the daylight and close them for privacy in the evening. A Control4 system installed by RF Designs knows exactly when the sun rises and sets every day year-round, so you won’t have to adjust the schedule as the days get shorter and longer.
