Screen Innovations Unveils Design-Forward Screens, Shades and Accessories at CEDIA Expo 2021

Screen Innovations demonstrates its dedication to the success of home systems integrators involved in the motorized shade and screen business by introducing a host of problem-solving new products at CEDIA Expo 2021. Always striving to make integrators’ jobs simpler and more profitable, SI drew inspiration from its network of systems integrators to develop technologies, products, and systems that overcome common challenges in the field effectively and efficiently, while providing end-users with beautiful, convenient, and fun smart home environments.

Whether it was an integrator’s wish for a simpler means of programming; sleeker, smaller motorized shade and screen cassettes; or more affordable installation hardware and software, SI listened, quickly pivoting to engineer and design the ideal shade and screen solution. By catering to the specific needs of its integrators, SI has carved a niche for itself, as a manufacturer that focuses its energy on providing integrators with meaningful products that make a real difference in the design, installation, and profitability of motorized shade and screen projects.

“SI is more than just a supplier, they are a partner that not only encourages suggestions from us but brainstorms with us to develop new products with one specific goal in mind—to help our business grow,” says Matt Uhl, owner of Gulf Coast Shades & Blinds, Pensacola, Fla. “It’s so refreshing to work with a manufacturer that’s open to discussion and builds the types of products we need to do our job better. The entire team at SI really cares about our success and time and again does whatever they can to help.”

It’s this open line of communication with integrators that has helped SI move consistently up the ladder as a leader in the motorized shade and screen market. Recognized this year as a Bullet Brand in CE Pro’s annual Brand Analysis Report, SI now commands second position in the motorized shade category and first in the motorized screen category.

“Despite a rocky pandemic-ridden 2020, we never stopped listening to our integrators,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson. “They are the reason we do what we do, and our top priority has always been to develop the types of shading and screen products they want. They tell us what we can do to improve, and we take their suggestions to heart.”

SI’s CEDIA Expo Presentation in Booth #5212 will include a range of indoor and outdoor entertainment and ambiance-enhancing solutions, including:

NEW Outdoor Entertainment Pavilion Featuring Shades and Screens

Outdoor entertaining is a hot trend that integrators, designers, architects, and homeowners are clamoring to capitalize on.

Accommodating popular outdoor shading fabrics to 25 feet wide and 16 feet tall, Zen 2 includes everything needed for a complete installation. Another perk: Zen 2 installs in half the time of other outdoor shading systems, thanks to its unique snap-in tube and hidden bracket attachment.

NEW Fabric Wizard Ensures the Perfect Fabric Choice

To help guide integrators, designers, homeowners, and end-users through the fabric selection process, SI’s new Fabric Wizard provides one convenient place to learn about and quickly and easily determine the best shading fabric for any indoor and outdoor application.

More than 850 indoor and outdoor fabrics and insect screens from leading designer shade suppliers, such as Phifer, Mermet, Serge Ferrari, Wilson, and more, have been thoughtfully categorized according to the installation location, function, color, and other parameters, significantly streamlining what could otherwise be an overwhelming and complex exercise. SI’s Fabric Wizard starts by asking website visitors to identify the purpose of the shade, be it for UV protection, privacy, heat reduction, glare control, or insect prevention. Based on those answers, as well as color preferences, Fabric Wizard cultivates a manageable list of the most appropriate fabric choices. Integrators can present these options to their customers, confident that whichever material is selected will look and perform optimally for the intended application.  

PROJECTION SCREENS

NEW Outdoor Projection Screen Options

SI offers those attending CEDIA Expo a sneak peek at its new outdoor screen cassette, Solo Outdoor. Expected to ship Q4, the weather-rated Solo Outdoor cassette features a small form factor and a zipper track and a high-wind rating that keeps the fabric taut even in challenging conditions. Also showcased in SI’s outdoor pergola is its Maestro outdoor-rated screen material, and 360, an outdoor screen material that can be viewed on both sides. These outdoor screen solutions will be paired with the latest Epson video projectors.

SI’s focus on outdoor shade and screen applications at CEDIA Expo inspires integrators to explore the outdoors when engaging with customers. SI’s range of options and ability to customize its products to suit the specifications of any job ensure integrators that they’ll have everything they need to succeed in the outdoor shade and screen business.

 

ACCESSORIES

 

Screen Innovations TroyNEW Troy IP Control Gateway Simplifies Shade and Screen Programming

The Troy IP Control Gateway enables integrators to program the movement of motorized shades and screens efficiently, simply, and affordably. A task that once took hours to accomplish on a dedicated windows PC, with multiple software applications for keypads, RF remotes, and motor configurations, now takes a few minutes from any standard web browser. Through Troy’s programming interface, shades and screens can be assigned unique ID addresses, particularly useful when grouping products together and delivering repeatable designs, like those for MDU installations. In a similar fashion to shade and screen configuration, Troy walks integrators through the process of assigning commands to specific buttons on keypads and handheld remotes.

Kratos_CEDIA_Expo

NEW Kratos Low-Voltage Power Supply Breaks Cost Barriers

When Matt Uhl, owner of Gulf Coast Shades & Blinds, approached SI president Ryan Gustafson about the need for an affordable power supply for low-voltage shades and screens, SI immediately went to work, introducing Kratos a few weeks later. Although dramatically less expensive than SI’s flagship Janus power and control hub, Kratos sacrifices no build quality or operational performance. The durable steel chassis runs cool to the touch and is plenum-rated for in-wall, riser, and general plenum installations. Plus, each of Kratos’s eight ports is protected against electrical shorts and mis-wiring. As an ideal complement to SI’s Zigbee 3.0 low-voltage motors, at a suggested retail price of $389, Kratos gives integrators a complete, turnkey low-voltage shading solution as an alternative to hardwired 485-based shading designs.

NEW Fontus Dongle Enables Two-Way Power and Control Over Two-Conductor Wire

SI introduces integrators to Fontus, a revolutionary new product that enables SI low-voltage motorized screens and shades to be powered and controlled via any type of traditional two-conductor wiring. SI’s Fontus allows integrators to utilize wire that may already exist inside a commercial building or home to connect screens and shades to a modern control system.

No bigger than a pack of gum and easily mounted to a DIN rail, Fontus can make a two-conductor wire perform 485-based communications as if it were an eight-conductor wire, significantly simplifying the installation. As long as there is a two-conductor wire available near the screen or shade location, Fontus, a dongle that plugs into SI’s new Janus power and control hub, converts low-voltage communications signals and power from a five-conductor system for distribution over two-conductor wire. The signal is decoded for reception at the screen or shade via a second Fontus dongle with no loss of signal.

NEW Janus Power and Control Hub

In the past, integrators have had no choice but to mount huge panels or run conduit to deliver power and control multiple motorized screens. SI’s revolutionary Janus hub, however, can do the job at a fraction of the size of traditional panels, without the need for conduit. Janus is 75% smaller than its closest competitor yet has the capacity to accommodate connections for as many as eight screens and eight accessories, such as keypads. Its ultra-compact form factor combined with huge capacity for commercial and large residential projects sets Janus in a class all its own. Ideal for projects requiring the installation of multiple screens, the expandability of Janus is limitless. It can utilize all wire topologies, even a Cat5 or Cat6 can be run 45.7 meters or more to SI’s largest screen motor.

NEW Zigbee 3.0 Mesh Controller and Edge Router

SI introduces two new products enabled with Zigbee 3.0 technology, the latest iteration of the Zigbee wireless communications protocol. The Zigbee 3.0 Link Pro Z Mesh Controller and Zigbee 3.0 Smart Outlet join SI’s previously introduced Zigbee 3.0 enabled line of ultra-compact Nano indoor shades and improved Smart Plug to create a complete communications ecosystem that seamlessly interoperates with a wide range of Zigbee 3.0-compliant third-party devices and systems, including automation systems from Crestron, Control4, Savant, Elan, and others. Additionally, SI’s new Zigbee 3.0 devices enable the control of Zigbee 3.0 and RTS shades (Radio Technology Somfy) via the Somfy TaHoma app on any smartphone or tablet, as well as voice assistants such as Alexa, Google Assistant, and soon Josh.ai.

Screen Innovations Streamlines and Simplifies Programming of SI Motorized Shades and Screens with New Brand-Agnostic IP Control Gateway

Screen Innovations Streamlines and Simplifies Programming of SI Motorized Shades and Screens with New Brand-Agnostic IP Control Gateway

 

Screen Innovations’ Troy IP Control Gateway enables integrators to choreograph the movement of any wired or wireless type of motorized shade or screen and integrate with multiple control platforms with ease and accuracy, no complex and expensive software necessary.

AUSTIN, TX — Screen Innovations (SI) continues to take cues from its nationwide network of home systems integrators as the basis for the development of several revolutionary motorized shading and projection screen products and technologies. The latest in a series of recent problem-solving innovations is SI’s Troy IP Control Gateway.

Integrators Talk, SI Listens

After hearing numerous integrators lament about the complexities involved when programming the speed, direction, and positioning of motorized shades and screens, SI immediately went to work and quickly engineered an easy, straightforward, hardware and software solution. The Troy IP Control Gateway is ready and available to provide integrators with a far more efficient, simple, and affordable programming platform. A task that once took hours to accomplish on a dedicated windows PC, with multiple software applications for keypads, RF remotes, and motor configurations now takes a few minutes from any standard web browser.

“We believe all products should work together and consumers should have choices. The vision of Troy is to open up all integration abilities across all brands and all communication topologies, allowing our integrators to be nimble in any situation,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson. “Troy becomes the ONE simple-to-use interface to program all wired and wireless devices and utilizes the latest cryptographic protocols to provide military-grade encryption for security.”

Simple Software Results in Fast, Accurate Installations

The Troy IP Control Gateway’s built-in programming software is accessible via any web-enabled device, including Mac or PCs as well as mobile devices. On these devices Troy presents an intuitive user interface that steps integrators through the entire setup process, resulting in quicker, more accurate deployments of shades and screens. Programming can be handled prior to installation, and should any setting need to be adjusted post installation, Troy can be accessed on the jobsite for on-the-fly software modifications.

Through Troy’s programming interface, shades and screens can be assigned unique ID addresses eliminating redundant and costly programming. This adds efficiency when grouping products together and delivering repeatable designs, which is particularly helpful for MDU installations where shading and screen installations are often identical across multiple residences. Troy has been engineered to integrate with SI’s range of popular 485, Zigbee 3.0, and RTS shade and screen motors, including Zen, Nano, Solo Pro 2, and MOTO 3 and 5 Series. It also facilitates the integration of SI shades and screens with control systems from leading manufacturers, including Control4, Crestron, Savant, and coming soon for Crestron Home, Elan, RTI, and URC.

Completing a shade and/or screen installation, Troy automatically detects and recognizes 485 keypads and RF receivers on the 485-based control network, presents them on the software’s user interface, and in a similar fashion to shade and screen configuration, walks integrators through the process of assigning commands to specific buttons.

Measuring 4.1” x 8.5” @1RU, and boasting a plenum-rated attractive industrial design, the Troy IP Control Gateway mounts neatly, horizontally or vertically, into a standard equipment rack.

Screen Innovations Debuts Extremely Robust, Ultra-Affordable Power Supply Ideally Suited for its Low-Voltage 3.0 Zigbee Shade Motors

Screen Innovations Debuts Extremely Robust, Ultra-Affordable Power Supply Ideally Suited for its Low-Voltage 3.0 Zigbee Shade Motors

 

New Kratos power supply leverages installation ease, either in rack or power panel, and compact footprint of SI’s new line of Zigbee 3.0 low-voltage motors.

AUSTIN, TX  — Screen Innovations is a leading motorized shading and screen manufacturer that not only listens to its worldwide team of integrators but uses their recommendations and suggestions as inspiration for the development of many of its new products and technologies. The most recent introduction to springboard from dealer input is SI’s Kratos power supply. The compact, all-metal, ultra-efficient, 250-watt, plenum-rated power supply provides integrators an affordable solution that leverages the installation ease, quiet operation, and compact footprint of SI’s new line of Zigbee 3.0-compliant low-voltage shade motors, as well as RTS systems. Dramatically less expensive than competing power supplies, Kratos carries a suggested retail price of $389, which for dealers ends up costing less than five Starbucks coffees to power each of eight motors powered by the unit. Bottom line: By utilizing Kratos, integrators can deploy low-voltage shading solutions at a lower cost than ever before.

Despite its attractive price tag, Kratos sacrifices no build quality or operational performance. The durable steel chassis runs cool to the touch and is plenum-rated for in-wall, riser, and general plenum installations. Plus, each of Kratos’s eight ports is protected against electrical shorts and mis-wiring. As an ideal complement to SI’s Zigbee 3.0 low-voltage motors, Kratos gives integrators a complete, turnkey low-voltage shading solution as an alternative to hardwired 485-based shading designs.

“Kratos is an exceptionally well-designed and -engineered product for integrators looking to take advantage of the many benefits of Zigbee 3.0 low-voltage shading motors currently available in our Nano indoor shading cassettes,” says SI CTO Michael Braithwaite. “The motors run up to 6 decibels quieter than comparably sized 485 motors, are easily integrated with other Zigbee-based devices, and now that we have Kratos, lithium batteries, which take up a lot of space, can be removed from the shading cassette, resulting in an even smaller footprint that’s ideal for installation on narrow windows.”

For delivering power and control to large residential and commercial shading projects utilizing a hardwired 485-based infrastructure, SI offers its flagship power and control hub, Janus. Infinitely scalable and compatible with all communications topologies, it affords the flexibility and versatility expected from a product bearing a higher price tag.

“Janus is our more full-featured power supply and data hub that’s designed to work with any wired or wireless shading motor. But if an integrator is installing only low-voltage motors and needs nothing more than a reliable, stable power supply, Kratos fits the bill,” Braithwaite adds.

Available to integrators now, Kratos supports a variety of mounting configurations and includes all the necessary wiring and mounting accessories.

To see Kratos and SI’s other innovative shading and screen solutions, visit Booth 5212 at CEDIA Expo, taking place in Indianapolis, IN, Sept. 1-3, 2021. For more information about SI and its growing portfolio of products and technologies, go to https://www.screeninnovations.com/.

AUSTIN, TX (July 8, 2021) — Screen Innovations (SI), a premier manufacturer of design-forward motorized and manual window covering products and accessories for shading, temperature control, privacy, and insect screening, continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping integrators prosper in the burgeoning motorized window shade business by launching an online shade selection and specification tool. Guiding integrators, designers, homeowners, and end-users through the fabric selection process, SI’s new Fabric Wizard provides one convenient place to learn about and quickly and easily determine the best shading fabric for any indoor and outdoor application.

More than 850 indoor and outdoor fabrics and insect screens from leading designer shade suppliers, such as Phifer, Mermet, Serge Ferrari, Wilson, and more, have been thoughtfully categorized according to the installation location, function, color, and other parameters, significantly streamlining what could otherwise be an overwhelming and complex exercise. SI’s Fabric Wizard starts by asking website visitors to identify the purpose of the shade, be it for UV protection, privacy, heat reduction, glare control, or insect prevention. Based on those answers, as well as color preferences, Fabric Wizard cultivates a manageable list of the most appropriate fabric choices. Integrators can present these options to their customers, confident that whichever material is selected will look and perform optimally for the intended application.

“We recognize that fabric selection is unfamiliar territory for many when designing shading solutions,” says SI CEO Ryan Gustafson. “Fabric Wizard helps integrators get up to speed quickly on the important aspects of fabric selection and leads them through the specification process while providing them with an interactive tool that helps their clients visualize how fabric composition and color influences its ability to block UV rays, control the indoor climate, enable a view of the outdoors, or keep bugs out.”

For customers who also want physical samples of products recommended by Fabric Wizard, SI will send up to three swatches free through SI dealers “We always suggest people place the fabric swatches on their intended windows and live with them for a while before making a final decision,” says Jason Russell, SI VP of Residential Sales. Integrators can also pull fabric swatches from the SI’s Nano demo kit, which contains 300-or-so of the company’s most popular fabric offerings.

The Fabric Wizard complements SI’s popular Flow online shade configuration and ordering software.  After using Fabric Wizard integrators can plug the fabric choice into the Flow configuration tool, adding dimensions, motorization type, and other specs to build a complete turnkey shading solution, along with estimated pricing. “As always, SI’s Design Service team is available to assist integrators and designers at any time and to handle custom shading requests,” Russell continues.

The Fabric Wizard was designed by SI to be much more than a specification tool, however. It includes a wealth of useful information that explains through text and visuals common performance differences, advantages and disadvantages of certain fabric colors, and composition features essential for light filtering, UV protection, heat control, and more. “Our goal is to help integrators, designers, and end-users understand how shades differ in their composition and functionality and why those facets are important to consider when choosing shading products for the home,” Russell says. By understanding these principles, they can confidently design the best shading solution for any indoor or outdoor home environment.”
