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.
Layton is a city on the island of Long Key in the Florida Keys, Monroe County, Florida. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 204. In the late 19th century, Long Key was used as a coconut plantation. By 1910, Layton, Florida, was becoming famous as a fishing destination, thanks in part to promotion by sports writer Zane Grey. However, the developing tourist infrastructure on Long Key was largely destroyed by the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. After World War II, Mary and Del Layton, who ran a grocery business in Miami, bought 40 acres (160,000 m2) on Long Key and started developing the property as “Layton’s Long Key Fishing Camp”, which grew substantially over the succeeding years. Layton FL was incorporated as a town on September 18, 1963. The land that would become Long Key State Park was acquired between 1961 and 1973. The park opened on October 1, 1969. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2) in which 12.50% is water. Islamorada FL is to the northeast. Marathon FL is to the southwest.
