Mobile App 

Integrate your shades with a home automation system and control them from your smartphone for unmatched convenience. Or, if you install Lutron shades, use the Lutron Connect app through a control system like Caséta, RadioRA 2, or HomeWorks QS. Then, adjust the window treatments in specific rooms or the entire room with just a few taps. Best of all, you can control your window treatments at home or away.

Voice Control

Lutron shades integrate with popular voice control systems such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home,  and more for easy control when your hands are full, or your phone is out of reach. As a result, you can enjoy hands-free control of all your spaces with a single spoken command. For example, ask Alexa to open the living room shades, lower the bedroom shades, or set the kitchen shades to 50 percent.

On-Wall Keypads

Some homeowners might also enjoy traditional on-wall controls. Lutron provides on-wall keypads for convenience when entering or leaving a room, making it easy to adjust your shades, lighting, climate, and more from a stylish wall panel. Personalize your keypad configurations to meet your family's unique needs with tactile buttons that utilize LED backlighting for visibility after dark and custom engraving. Choose from various styles and finishes that integrate seamlessly with your home’s decor. 


If you more or less follow the same schedule every day, you can even automate your shades to adjust on a schedule so you can set it and forget it. For example, program your bedroom shades to open when the sun rises so you gently awaken from sleep. Then, schedule them to close automatically when you leave for work, so your home remains secure while you are away. Have them open again when you get home from work, then close when the sun sets so you can enjoy some privacy.
