Many adjustable window attachments can be automated: shades, screens, shutters and blinds. Automation includes motors, sensors, controls and timers. Both controls and power can be wireless, the former using radio frequency technology and the latter using battery technologies. Today’s window attachment motors and batteries are typically concealed and protected in the roller tubes of the attachment and operation of the newer motors is approaching “noiseless” operation.

Window Attachments Power

There are three options for powering motorized attachments: battery (direct current or DC), outlet (may be DC or alternating current— AC), and inwall (AC). Battery power has the advantage of being wireless and not involving an electrician, but it is better suited to smaller or lighter window attachments. Outlet power is convenient because an electrician does not need to wire the attachment. In new construction, outlets can be concealed along the margin of the window or more typically up at the top of the window behind a valence or the head cassette of the attachment. Inwall power is AC house wiring direct to the motorized window attachment. Inwall power is best accomplished when wall cavities are open, during construction or major renovation. AC motors are well-suited to heavy lifting and can even service multiple window attachments.

Motorized Window Coverings Controls

When motorized window coverings are controlled by sensors, timers, or programs, the system is automated. Controls for motorized attachments can be either individual or grouped. Options include everything from battery-powered, hand-held remote control to mesh network, smart phone app-driven systems to full integration with a home’s automation system. Programmable operation can be based on light intensity or temperature. Wind sensors can be included in exterior window attachment systems, which will then automatically retract when high winds threaten exterior attachments. Manufacturers of window attachment automation systems give detailed guidance on all the options and specifications for motors, power sources, and controls based on the type and size of window attachments.

Thermal Performance

Each adjustable window attachment’s thermal performance can be improved by optimal operation. Studies have shown significant improvement in both the thermal performance of adjustable window attachment operation as well as reduced lighting energy consumption when automation is employed. Savings can be achieved both from remote handheld user operation of motorized attachments and from automated operation employing sensor-activated window attachments.

El Portal, FL

El Portal is a village in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The village name is derived from the Spanish term for “the gate,” after two wooden gates that once stood as a gateway to the village on Northeast Second Avenue that were taken down in the 1940s. El Portal was originally a neighborhood of the City of Miami when it was annexed into the City of Miami in 1925. With the arrival of the Great Depression, the City of Miami gave up its jurisdiction and El Portal was incorporated as its own village in 1937. As of 2004, the population recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau was 2,468. El Portal is a small, diverse enclave between Miami Shores and Miami. It was incorporated on December 6, 1937. The enclave was originally the capital of the Tequesta tribal area, and was visited by Pedro Menéndez de Avilés in the 1560s. The village was designated a bird sanctuary by the state for more than 50 years. A nature trail winds its way through the village. El Portal also boasts links to prehistoric Indian life at the Little River Mound, a four-foot-high, innocuous grassy knoll that is actually an ancient burial ground. The Little River Mound, located in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood, is the first archaeological site to be publicly recognized and preserved in Miami-Dade County. Miami Shores is to the north. Hialeah is to the west. Miami is to the south. North Bay Village is to the east.
