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.
Opa-locka is a city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the population was 15,219. The city was developed by aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss in 1926 and was based on a One Thousand and One Nights theme, with streets that have names like Sabur Lane, Sultan Avenue, Ali Baba Avenue, Perviz Avenue and Sesame Street. Opa-locka, Florida, has the largest collection of Moorish Revival architecture in the Western hemisphere. The name Opa-locka is an abbreviation of a Seminole place name, spelled “Opa-tisha-wocka-locka.” The original name probably signified a wooded hammock in a swamp. While the 1926 Miami hurricane badly damaged Opa-locka and brought the Florida land boom to a halt, several Moorish-style buildings survived. Twenty of the original Moorish Revival architecture buildings have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Opa-Locka Thematic Resource Area. Amelia Earhart launched her historic trip around the world from Miami Municipal Airport, just south of Opa-locka. The famous German dirigible Graf Zeppelin visited the NAS Miami, which later became Opa-locka Airport, as a regular stop on its Germany-Brazil-United States scheduled route. In addition to the unique buildings, Opa-locka has a large general aviation airport, three parks, two lakes and a railroad station which is currently the tri-rail station. The city is a mixture of residential, commercial and industrial zones. Despite its limited resources, the city was the backdrop for the making of movies such as Texas Justice, Bad Boyz II and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Miami Gardens FL is to the north. North Miami FL is to the east. Hialeah FL is to the south. Miami Lakes FL is to the west.
