Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Smart Shade Devices Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart shade devices market: Hunter Douglas, Pella, and Springs Window Fashions

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bali, Graber, Horizons, MechoSystems, and SWFcontract

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Smart shade devices with in-built voice commands are trending in the global space. The devices are equipped with audio frequency (AF) receivers that receive commands from the outside and accordingly operate the shades.”

According to the report, home automation involves the automation and control of lighting, air conditioning, ventilation, heating, and security, as well as home appliances such as refrigerators/freezers, washers/dryers, and ovens that use Wi-Fi for remote monitoring. A smart home system can also integrate the automation of smart shades for windows and other places inside the home. Modern smart home systems generally consist of a central hub or ‘gateway’ that links multiple sensors and switches placed around the house. The gateway is controlled via a user interface that may be accessed through a smartphone, tablet, or wall-mounted terminal.

Further, the report states that compatibility is a key concern for every type of technology-enabled home improvement product. Smart shades use wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi and BLE for communication. The different versions of these technologies depend on the platforms they require such as smartphones or tablets, and these, in turn, work according to their different operating systems, which include Android, iOS, Windows, and Blackberry. For instance, the Bluetooth v4.2 technology is compatible with Android 4.3 or newer versions and with iOS8 or newer versions. Version upgrades of wireless technologies, however, require high-level of compatibility enhancing measures. These are applicable for the smart shades directly connected with the smartphones or tablets.
