Retractable skylight shades can be easily made with our ShadeSlider™ remote control skylight and bottom-up window shade kit for residential and commercial applications. It can be operated with our standard 8 channel hand held remotes, and from our standard RF wireless wall switches, and by phone, tablet or PC with our Z-wave interface extension.
Available now, the Vera™ compatible digital radio controlled ShadeSlider™ sytem has a low power, very energy efficient 12v motor, and you can also order it with our built-in battery motors (with solar charging option).

Ideal for use with cellular shade material, it can be adapted for many applications: skylights, bottom-up window shades, greenhouse shade systems, pergolas, sliding cupboard doors, etc.
- Works at any angle, including vertical or horizontal
- Very scalable design handles large covering requirements for large skylights, pergolas, atrium windows, etc.

- Compatible with our multi-channel hand held or wall mount wireless remotes

There are also commercial and industrial applications for this motorized system: instead of pulling a blind or shade, you could mount a tube with one of our battery motors in it (doesn't need any wires), and use it as an automated feeder for dipping tanks: powder coating, small anodizing runs, paint dipping tanks, Plasti Dip® tools and anything else that needs a hook transport mechanism and/or automated dipping tank system.
