Lutron Rolls Out New Palladiom Motorized Shading System

As a 2016 Platinum-level Lutron dealer, we are simply ecstatic about Lutron's announcement from the Custom Electronics Design and Installation (CEDIA) Expo trade show today in San Diego.

Lutron has unveiled the new Palladiom Shading System, a continuation of the modern, sleek and elegant line of Palladiom in-wall control keypads and thermostats.

Lutron's new Palladiom shading system is both stunning in design and built to Lutron's high-quality standard with a powerful driver and quiet motor. It is quite simply a perfect fit for our most discerning clients.

Harrison Home Systems will be among the first Lutron dealers in the country to receive this exciting new shading solution which features a beautifully designed exposed bracket available in various polished finishes.

The shade system design allows for a minimalist finished look, concealing all wires, minimalizing light gaps, and eliminating the need for custom shade pockets or fascia that protrudes from the wall.

The shades are available for large window applications which are very common in modern architecture in Denver and Colorado in general.

Colorado Homes & Lifestyles names Tazi Ranch 2017 Home of the Year

Harrison Home Systems is proud to have provided the home automation, entertainment systems and motorized shading for the project, Tazi Ranch, which has been named Colorado Homes & Lifestyles magazine's 2017 Home of the Year.  

This landmark property, located in the Larkspur area, is truly spectacular both in its natural setting and the beautiful design and construction. The project was designed by Vertical Arts Architecture and built by Shaw Homes.

One of the unique aspects of this project for Harrison Home Systems was outfitting the property's multi-building equestrian facilities with network, audio and video systems.

The home is equipped with a Savant home automation system and motorized shading from Lutron.

Our very talented field team built this beautiful rack for the project.

Alexa Now Controls Savant

Harrison Home Systems' clients using Savant automation systems in their homes, can now add the convenience of Alexa voice control. There is no longer any need to find a controller or a phone to make your home environment just the way you want it. You can now simply tell any Alexa enabled device to set Savant Scenes, turn rooms on or off, or adjust the lights.


You might ask... 

Alexa can control a lot of systems, so what is special about Alexa controlling Savant?

Well, as Savant stated in their press release in June, 'Interfacing with Savant’s groundbreaking scene engine that captures personalized automation events, consumers can initiate, schedule, edit or delete a Savant Scene while retaining seamless Alexa functionality.'

This means that Alexa serves as a voice control extension of Savant's unique feature allowing homeowners to set and change scenes in their automation system without the need for a third-party programmer to make adjustments to their system. This feature reduces service calls and improves overall homeowner satisfaction.

We see this as a huge added convenience for our existing clients and a great argument for specifying Savant down the road. This feature makes Savant/Alexa integration truly unique.
