Serena Smart Shades by Lutron

THE. BEST. SHADES. I’m telling you.. For so many reasons.. I just love Serena Smart Shades by Lutron.. from the ease of setting an evening ambience in our home, raising and lowering the shades from the app, to setting a schedule for the shades that fits with our daily life... Lutron has made it SO easy to love these shades.. |ad| I could list reasons all day, but in an effort to not keep you all day, I narrowed it down to five. Haha! So, here we go..

1. THE SCHEDULE. Hands down my favorite feature. I have our dining room shades set to a schedule to close when the sun is going down and open around the time my kids are coming downstairs to eat breakfast. Even one of my kids said this was their favorite feature. When they came home from school and realized I added shades to the family room windows, they were so excited! "I love them mom!" "Will they all open in the morning when we come down for breakfast?" You better believe that I set that schedule up ASAP when they asked that. haha! 

2.NO STRINGS. I love that the shades are powered by a Pico Smart remote. There are no longer strings to get all tangled, or to mess up the balance of the blinds so they raise uneven. (IYKYK) My youngest says she loves that she can just push the button to open or close the shades and not have to jump up and grab the strings. Which leads me to the next feature..

3. EASE OF INSTALL. The shades come with step-by-step instructions to make installation easy peasy. Like, it literally took me less than 10 minutes to install each shade, including syncing to the remote and app. 

4. THE WEBSITE. It was SO easy to navigate through the website. First you pick the right shades for you, then you are guided through measuring and and selecting the features and colors you want. You can even "name" the shade so when it comes, it's labeled so you know exactly where to install it. Click the photo below to check out their website now.

5. SYNCS TO ALEXA. I just figured this feature out.. But you can tell Alexa to turn on and off lights, raise and lower your shades, and if you have a scene set in your app, you can set it! Like say for example, you have a certain lighting you like for parties, you can set a "party lights" scene in your app and tell Alexa to set that scene! Too cool! The Lutron app syncs with other popular home systems like Ring,, Google Assistant, and several others! Click the video below to see how Alexa works with these shades.

So there you go! A few of the reasons these are so great! If you're ready to check out Serena Shades by Lutron, CLICK HERE. You will need a smart hub to get all connected, CLICK HERE to get one of those. And if you want to check out all of Lutron products, you can CLICK HERE
