Lutron unveils Palladiom, the home automation specialist’s latest premier collection of modern exposed bracket roller shades, keypads, and thermostats designed to work seamlessly and quietly in service of privacy and maintaining a comfortable interior temperature.

The Palladiom roller shade is outfitted with Lutron’s Intelligent Hembar Alignment system, a two-part electronic control designed to keep all connected automated shades synchronized and aligned within one-eighth of an inch across their bottom hem bar.

Palladiom now sits a tier above the Lutron Serena and Caseta smart shade system, offering a higher grade of finishes, materials, and styles (while retaining the app controls, working with all of Lutron’s existing home lighting systems, including HomeWorks).

Lutron Palladiom roller shade are available at sizes capable of covering up to a 12-by-12-foot window opening, only requiring a slim tube 2 inch diameter carbon fiber fabric tube up top.

Like the Serena roller shades, the electronics/motors responsible for the rolling the shades up or down are housed and hidden within a bracket/bar structure; machined aluminum unibody brackets available in Satin Nickel, Black Anodized, or Clear Anodized finishes are intended to be installed as an exposed interior architectural element.

An array of matching wallstations, keypads, and digital thermostats round out the Palladiom system line. Once installed, each wallstation allows the control of lights, shades/drapes and HVAC wirelessly from anywhere in the house. Lutron has yet another feather in its home automation cap, the Palladiom arguably the company’s most handsome shading and control system yet.

The Palladiom thermostat is designed to work with the Lutron Connect app, allowing monitoring and temperature adjustment from iOS or Android devices.
