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.
Lazy Lake, FL
Lazy Lake is a village contained entirely within the borders of the city of Wilton Manors, in Broward County, Florida. The population was 24 at the 2010 census. The village of Lazy Lake is roughly 620,000 sq ft (58,000 m2).

Lazy Lake – A tiny hamlet in the midst of a bustling metropolis, its very existence defies the imagination. Lazy Lake has no traffic light, no gas station, no website, no town hall, and only one road to call its own. The 35 residents who live in Broward County’s smallest town like it that way. “The more people don’t know about us, the better,” longtime resident and onetime mayor Joe Fodera said of the village, founded in 1953. The village last had an election in 2006, when newcomer Lyn McFarland broke with tradition and challenged Joe McCallion for mayor, breaking a political dry spell that lasted 22 years. “Once every 20 years, we’ll have an election,” Fodera quipped. Elections cost money, Fodera said. Better to just take turns being mayor, residents say. “Everybody gets a turn here and there, depending on how long they’ve lived here,” said McCallion. In 2006, McFarland beat McCallion 12 to 3 in an election that boasted a 59% turnout. The people who live in the 15 homes built around the village’s 3.5-acre namesake lake have no interest in joining Wilton Manors, their much-larger neighboring municipality. “Everyone is content just the way it is,” said Fodera, who relinquished the mayor’s title in 2010 for another: village clerk, the town’s only paid employee. As clerk, he makes $4,800 a year and helps oversee Lazy Lake’s $35,000 annual budget. “I want to maintain the village’s countrylike charm and keep it the way it is,” said Pringle, who moved to Lazy Lake in February 2010 after relocating to Fort Lauderdale from New York five years earlier. Lazy Lake FL residents pay low taxes – $495 per $100,000 of assessed value compared with $699 in Wilton Manors – and want to make sure it stays that way, Pringle said. Home values here range from $278,000 to $595,000, but average about $500,000, even with the depressed real estate market. Lazy Lake is bordered by Andrews Avenue on the west and Northeast First Avenue on the east, Northeast 21st Court on the south and Northeast 24th Street on the north. Lazy Lake made national news in 1995 when residents put their tiny town up for sale, listing it for $15 million. “It was a great deal,” Fodera said. “Where can you buy a town for $15 million in Florida?” No one, however, took the deal.
