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.

Key Colony Beach, FL

Key Colony Beach is a city in the Florida Keys, Monroe County, Florida. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau was 852. Most of Key Colony Beach FL is located on an island formerly known as Shelter Key. A small part of the city is on Fat Deer Key where the Sadowski Causeway, which is the only road entering the city, connects to U.S. 1 (the Overseas Highway). According to the United States Census Bureau, Key Colony Beach, Florida, has a total area of 0.7 square miles (1.8 km2) in which 23.88% is water. Prior to the early 1950s, Shelter Key was a 97-acre (390,000 m2) low-lying island. Then, Phil Sadowski began dredging around the island, adding to its size and increasing its height to six feet above mean sea level, and later built developments on the island. Around 1956, residents of nearby Marathon FL began discussing incorporating the entire area. Sadowski was not keen to having his development swallowed up into Marathon, so he began the process of incorporating the island into its own city. The Florida State Legislature passed legislation in June 1957 allowing incorporation, which local residents passed unanimously in September, thus creating today’s Key Colony Beach. Incorporation would become a blessing in 1960, when much of the city was destroyed by Hurricane Donna. As a separately incorporated city, Key Colony Beach received its own federal grant to rebuild. Nearby Marathon (not yet incorporated) had to settle for a portion of the grant given to Monroe County. However, Hurricane Donna (and the takeover of Cuba by Fidel Castro) caused a depression of real estate prices, which would take several years to stabilize. Mrathon FL is to the west. Islamorada FL is to the northeast.
