Solar Battery Pack
Uses sunlight to power window coverings. Photovoltaics produce solar energy by
converting solar radiation (sunlight) into direct electricity (DC). The Wire-Free
Solar Pack's PV panel is mounted on the inside of the window opening and
converts the sun's light into electrical energy to power the window blind motor. It
is the ideal solution for hard to reach battery tube locations such as second story
windows where battery replacement can be challenging.

How to...
Winterize Your
Home with
Winter is here! Prepare now for the
long, frigid nights!
One of the best ways you can
prepare for winter is to prevent heat from escaping. Nearly 5% of the heat
pumped through your home each year is lost through tiny holes and
cracks in the walls, especially the ones between windows and walls.
The good news is that the right window treatments can prevent this from
happening! In fact, by winterizing your home with the right shades and
draperies to act as insulators, you can cut detrimental energy loss by
nearly 50%! So, if you really want to protect your home and your bank
account this year, upgrade your window treatments!
Here's how...
● Use an inside mount. (Make sure you choose a blind or shade that fits
snugly in your window frame. You'll block more heat from escaping and
cold air from creeping in.)
● If using an outside mount, add top treatments like thermal draperies or
cotton drapery panels. (These treatments will act as an additional barrier
between your home and the elements.)
● Keep window treatments raised during the day to pull in natural heat
from the sun.
● Lower window treatments at night to trap heat in.
● Use Shutters. (Shutters are an excellent winterizing solution! They
virtually prevent all heat from escaping while keeping out cold winter air.)
● Install thick blinds (Look for "blackout" or "energy-efficient". The thicker
the blinds, the better barrier provided at keeping the cold out and the
heated, interior air inside.)
● Use black-out curtains. (Blackout curtains are one of the thickest
curtains available to use as an energy-efficient barrier on your window/s.
The thickness of the curtain prevents any cold air from getting into your
home, creating a double barrier to keep your home warm.)
Keep the above in mind and you should make the most out of using
window treatments to winterize your home!
A Client Reviews MWT....
Dear Friends,
My reason for writing is because I was told that
Motorized Window Treatments (MWT) is offering
special discount rates in January & February for
those interested in the TaHomA Home Automation System
by Somfy. I have this system in my home and I'd like EVERYONE to
share in its benefits. The feeling of security, the sense of having control,
and being on the cutting-edge of future technology for the home,
is something I truly value.
Today much is being said about convenience and safety. Whether it be
for the young child, young adult, mature adult, and/or seniors, the
messages are sent loud and clear. In the world we live in, technology has
made tremendous gains in providing convenience and safety. However,
rugs, doors, windows, etc. are on the caution list for safety reasons. Also,
messages to never give out information over the phone, not let anyone
you don't know into your home, etc. are heard loud and clear.
Fortunately, I recently worked with a company called MOTORIZED
WINDOW TREATMENTS, based in Schaumburg, IL. They were able to
provide me with both convenience and safety through a complete and
affordable HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM called TaHomA (by Somfy).
Now, when I come home in the evening, I open the door and lights guide
me where I want to go. When I am away, the lights go on and off at
various times, and a programed security radio goes on and off to alert
people that: "Someone may be home." As I leave my home, or retire for
the night, I press one button and it shuts off all the lights in the house. If I
hear a noise, I press another button and EVERY light in the house goes
on. Also, a sensor lights the way to the bathroom, if nature calls at night,
and shuts off automatically after a short while.
The easiest part of the entire TaHomA system is: IT CAN BE
TABLET! You do not have to be on the premises! If you have internet
access, you can control your home!
Individual switches can override any programed timer if needed and
the switches are rocker-based making it easy for arthritic fingers to
control. The TaHomA System also has the ability to control all your
ceiling lights, ceiling fans, electrical outlets, thermostats and motorized
window treatments!
If Mom or Dad find it difficult to program, a son, daughter, or designated
other, can make changes electronically from wherever they are as long as
there is internet access!

Automation System by Somfy installed:
