Crestron Shading Solutions

        Our integrated lighting control solutions include motorized shades - adding beauty, convenience, and comfort throughout the home. Featuring exclusive Quiet Motor Technology™, Crestron shades provide silent operation and convenient, one-touch control. What makes Digital QMT® shade motors, our exclusive motor technology, so unique is the brushless motor design. Brushes in DC motors wear over time, causing the motor to fail. Our new brushless motor provides greater reliability, much longer life, and ultra-quiet operation. Even better, automated shades lower utility bills and increase the home's value and security.

        Transparent fabrics transmit light so that objects or images are seen through the weave of the fabric. These have an openness factor between 3-17%. 

        Benefits: Solar protection, natural light and glare control, and reduced solar heat gain.


        Translucent fabrics transmit diffused light and enhance privacy. The exterior view is only partially visible as silhouettes and shadows. These fabrics typically have an openness factor between 1-3%.

        Benefits: Solar protection, privacy, enhanced natural light filtration, and reduced solar heat gain.



        Blackout fabrics provide advanced light blockage and privacy. Use additional accessories to create a complete blackout solution and prevent light leak between the fabric and the jamb, and the hem bar and the sill. 

        Benefits: Ultimate light and glare control, complete privacy and a dramatic reduction in solar heat gain.

        Shade motors require power; only Crestron offers a new Intelligent Power Supply, delivering several distinct advantages for shading professionals. It can power up to ten motorized shades, each with its own fuse. The power supply is designed to work with all Crestron shade motors and includes built-in diagnostics that make it simple for shading professionals to identify broken wires, shorts, and blown fuses.

        • The integrated five-segment Cresnet® hub provides an isolated control network for each pair of shades, therefore limiting the impact of any wiring faults.
        • The power supply ships ready to mount on the wall or pre-installed in a 1x1 CAEN enclosure for easy, clean installation.
        • The convenient on-board push-button controls make it simpler for an installer or technician to test for proper operation prior to system commissioning.
