Exposed Wall Plug Systems remove the need for custom wiring by plugging motors into a standard outlet. Shades are controlled through infrared (IR) or radio frequency (RF).

Note: an electrician can modify a standard electrical outlet behind the shade system creating a tailored cord free look.
Hidden Wall Plug Systems provide an option for a higher level of shade integration and performance. With minimally invasive retrofitting, wiring is partially hidden in the wall while a shade is still plugged into a standard outlet. Shades are controlled via radio frequency.

Hardwired Systems provide the highest level of performance and broadest range of control systems. Shades are powered and controlled through this central wiring system.
