Reduce window glare, solar heating, and strong wind damage with Interior Roller & Window Blinds & Shades. They are popular for their high level of user control, privacy, aesthetics, and comfort.
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.
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.
Florida City, FL
Florida City is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida. It is the southernmost municipality in the South Florida metropolitan area, which had an estimated population of 5,413,212 in 2007. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 8,363. Florida City is primarily a Miami suburb and a major agricultural area. The city lies to the south and west of, and is contiguous with, Homestead. Both cities suffered catastrophic damage in August 1992, when Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida. The city originated as a land promotion named Detroit. There were no buildings in the area when the first thirty families arrived in 1910, and they had to stay in Homestead until their houses could be built. The name was changed to Florida City when the town incorporated in 1914. It has a small historic area, but much of the city is hotels and other tourist facilities. The city is at the eastern end of the only road running through the Everglades National Park, which terminates at Flamingo. Florida City is the southernmost city in the United States which is not on an island. It is also the last stop on the mainland north of the Florida Keys. The southern terminus of the Homestead Extension of Florida’s Turnpike where it ends at its junction with U.S. 1 is located in Florida City. Florida City is situated mostly atop a limestone ridge called the Miami Rock Ridge that extends south from North Miami Beach to Everglades National Park. This ridge serves as the higher ground within the community. The ridge extends from northeast to southwest across the city. The old location of the Florida East Coast Railway track marks the approximate boundary of the location of the limestone ridge south of Davis Parkway. The range of elevation of the ridge is from 5 to 8 feet above sea level. Prior to settlement, the ridge was vegetated by South Florida Slash Pine trees, which were alternatively known as “Dade County Pine” (Pinus elliottii var. densa). These pine rocklands were crushed by equipment and converted to farmland during the 1900s. Tomatoes, squash, and other truck crops were grown in the area during the winter months and packed at the Florida City State Farmers’ Market near Krome Avenue and Palm Drive, driving the local economy throughout the 1900s. East of the natural ridge was a broad area of marshlands surrounding the area. Some called these coastal glades the “East Glade”. East of the East Glade, marshlands gave way to mangrove swamp prior to reaching Biscayne Bay. Soils in the East Glade primarily consisted of a limey soil called Biscayne Marl. Development schemes in the East Glade led to the construction of canals in the early 1900s. This led to a lowering of water tables. The local climate is considered a Tropical Savanna Climate (grasslands with tropical wet and dry periods). Homestead Florida is to the north. Everglades National Park is to the west. The Florida Keys are to the south.
