Benefits of IntelliFlex I/O Motorized Shades

Draper’s IntelliFlex I/O is a motorized shade system. This solution provides a customizable and scalable option for projects of varying sizes and complexities. As needs change and grow, IntelliFlex I/O can also scale to create a more comprehensive system without necessitating hardware replacement or rewiring.

IntelliFlex I/O fosters comfort and productivity by limiting heat gain and glare. Choose from a wide variety of fabric options to customize the amount of light transmission and visibility to your requirements. Several different devices can control the shades, including a handheld remote, wall switch, and input devices that integrate with other systems or respond to environmental factors. Schedule the shades to raise or lower based on the time of day or the sun’s orientation and brightness. Or, program the shades to respond to other system components, including lighting and display screens.

Congratulations to Draper for the well-deserved recognition on their ground-breaking IntelliFlex I/O motorized shades.
