Power Options

You can choose between battery powered or plug-in shades.

Battery: Most battery powered Serena shades require standard D or AA batteries. Triathalon technology allows for 3 year battery life with normal use.

Wired: The plug-in shades include a 15 foot long adapter cord. You also have the option of a low-voltage adapter which can be purchased separately.


Mounting Options

You have three different mounting options. You can mount the shades insides the window frame, on the frame, or on the wall above the frame.

Inside Mount: Minimum inside depth is 1.5″. This type of shade fits completely inside the window frame from top to bottom. You can add an optional back cover to eliminate light leakage between the headrail and window frame.

Outside Mount (on the window frame): This type of shade will cover the window from edge to edge. Make sure the shade can move freely from top to bottom without being disrupted by the curtain pull-backs or other features.

Outside Mount (above the window frame): This type of mount covers the entire window frame and is mounted on the wall. This requires spacer inserts to clear the edge of the window frame.


Fabric Styles

Serena shades come in various styles, which have different levels of opacity.

Honeycomb

  • Light-Filtering — Single Cell: Creates a soft glow while providing some privacy from outside.
  • Room-Darkening — Single-Cell: Blocks light from entering and provides complete privacy.
  • Light-Filtering — Double-Cell: Allows some light through, and saves energy with insulating design.

Roller

  • Sheer: Thin fabric that allows sunlight to filter in and is somewhat see-through.
  • Translucent: Allows some sunlight in, but reduces view to shapes and shadows for increased privacy.
  • Blackout: Blocks all light for complete privacy.

Serena Shades offers over 150 fabrics in a variety of colors and decorative textures in opacities from sheer to room darkening. No matter what color your room is, you’ll definitely be able to find a shade that goes with your design.


Control Type

Pico 5-Button Wireless Controlled Shades: This remote features full-open, full-closed, raise, lower, and a programmable “favorite” button.

Serena RF (radio frequency) 4-Group Remote Control: This remote allows you to independently control four separate groups of one or more shades. Select a group and then control that group with full open, full close, raise, lower, and “favorite”.

Shades can also be controlled via the Lutron mobile app which is available for free on iOS and Android devices.


Energy Savings

Serena insulating honeycomb shades protect your home from harsh summer rays which can heat up a room and cause your A/C to work overtime. The honeycomb design has pockets that trap air, which can double the insulation of your windows.


Reviews

“We have a very big window (>92″ wide) so I was worried that a battery powered solution would even work. Not only does it work, it looks great, is very quiet, and simply a great solution! We just ordered another for our second giant window!” – Kelly

“I have many units throughout my house and all I can say is they are easy, great looking and work flawlessly.” – Mike

“Love my shade and will buy more in the future!” – Rhonda

“We ordered several shades for our bedroom, our daughters bedroom and our living room. The blackout shades are fantastic for the bedrooms. They let in very little light. The shades fit perfectly and work well.” – Gabe

“The best automated shade on the market and an exceptional value.” – Kevin
