Smart, Motorized Skylight Shades

Take your skylights to another level. Skylights have a lot of advantages—the main one bringing natural light into a space. Not only does that natural light add illumination and ambiance, it also decreases the use of electric light. Plus, during colder months, skylights can help a space heat up on sunny days.

If you have skylights though, you know that they can also channel too much light and heat into a room—and they have the potential to be a conduit for heat loss when the weather is cold.

Adding shades to skylights can help you address those issues. But if your skylights are hard to reach, manual shades can be a tricky to open and close. Not so with smart, motorized skylight shades.

Cellular Skylight Shades

While you’ll find many different styles of smart skylight shades, a top option is smart cellular skylight shades. That’s because cellular shades are the most insulating interior shades available, helping enhance energy efficiency year-round. Their honeycomb design traps air in distinct pockets, for an extra layer of insulation at the window. 

And when you pair a cellular skylight shade with smart motorization, you’ll easily be able to block the summer sun from heating up a room, while also protecting interiors from the sun’s harsh UV rays. When temps dip, you can open that shade during the day to help warm up the room, and then close it at night to keep the heat inside. (On cloudy winter days, keep the shade closed to add that insulating layer.)

Enhanced energy efficiency isn’t the only advantage of cellular shades, though. Their cellular construction helps them absorb sound, for a quieter room, while their fabrics beautifully diffuse light. 

And if you’re looking for smart, motorized skylight blackout shades? You can check that box with cellular shades, too. They’re available with room-darkening fabrics—perfect for a bedroom and a sounder sleep.
