A Fresh Approach to Smart Shading

Screen Innovations is an aptly named company. The firm began in 2003 when its founder was frustrated by the lack of innovation in home theater screen options. Since then, the company has continued to introduce new thinking about screens, with pioneering designs in motorized screens and light rejection materials for improved home cinema experiences.

In 2017, the company decided to leverage their knowledge of screen materials and motorization into a new area – motorized shades, for both indoor and outdoor shading solutions. Screen Innovations has put their own unique design twists and features on their motorized shades.

The Screen Innovations Difference


Screen Innovations brings a practical approach to their products. A case in point is the Nano Box design. The Nano Box has the smallest cassette in the industry at 2.75 inches tall so you can fit and blend this motorized shade into practically any window. The Duo Box occupies only 3.8 inches of depth and lets you use dual shade materials, one for partial light passthrough and another for blackout purposes.

The innovations don’t stop at size. The company provides three ways to power its shades, all of which have ultra-quiet motors. You can go with AC power for when its wired and available, 24v low voltage, and rechargeable battery power with a patent-pending magnetic attachment for convenient recharging with no battery replacement. The rechargeable battery option is ideal for retrofitting motorized shades in existing homes.

Another novel feature is side and sill channels. This feature enables the shades to totally block out outside light, ideal for media rooms and home theaters that serve double duty as living areas. It can also be applied to bedrooms, where light sleepers can enjoy total blackout shading.

Design Choices


The Nano Roll redefines small shades with an even more streamlined design. At only 2.5 inches tall, the design is sleek and modern without a cassette housing. Like other Nano options, wired and wireless power options are available.

Screen Innovations believes color choice should be varied, and they offer twelve housing colors and 80 fabrics from which to choose. They provide large 5 X 7” color swatches that make it easy to make choices that blend with your décor.

Flexible Automation


Smart shades are only as smart as the flexibility they provide for control and automation. Screen Innovations excels in this area as well. One example is the new LinkPro Z mesh hub, which will provide a networked bridge to allow smartphones, tablets, and voice assistants like Alexa to control the motorized shades. What’s more, it also serves as a single control point for integration with smart home automation solutions like Control4.
