Shield Your Patio from the Weather to Enjoy Your Outdoor Space

Are you getting the most out of your patio? You shouldn’t have to be restricted by the cold weather in Darien, CT if you want to enjoy your outdoor area—fortunately, with outdoor shades, you’re free to relax on your patio from early spring to late fall. 

At Digital Home Systems, we recommend Lutron outdoor shades because of their high-quality design, sun protection, ability to keep out insects, and more. Keep reading to find out three reasons why Lutron outdoor shades need to be your next smart home technology purchase.

Enjoy Your Patio From Spring to Fall

When you’ve turned your patio into a secret relaxation oasis, why wouldn’t you want to spend as much time out there as possible? One of the added benefits of installing outdoor shades on your patio is being able to enjoy this outdoor space from early spring to late fall. Outdoor shades allow you to soak up the spring morning sunlight after a long, cold winter while giving you the power to shield yourself from an afternoon rain shower.

A touch of a button can easily lower your shades for a calmer and more dry atmosphere while shielding you from the bright, hot sun of the summer. Plus, many outdoor shades have a wind resistance of up to 40 MPH! 

Enjoy Your Patio Without Unwanted Bugs

One downside of spending time outside during warmer months of the year is the unwanted critters that make their way on your patio. Who wants to worry about getting itchy mosquito bites from enjoying a glass of wine on the patio at night? Outdoor shades can help you eliminate this problem. 

Thanks to their zipper track systems and seals, you can expect to see a significant decrease in pests on your patio so that you can have a bug-free experience. Keeping insects out isn’t the only thing your outdoor shades shield you from! Outdoor shades protect you and your patio furniture from the sun’s harmful UV rays and direct rainwater as well.

Multiple Ways to Control Your Outdoor Shades

The beauty of rapid technological advancement is that today’s outdoor shades can be motorized so that you don’t have to get up from your cozy spot when you want to raise or lower your shades. Control them through a wall-mounted keypad, a hand-held remote, or integrate your outdoor shades with your existing home automation system to have remote control right from your smartphone. You can even create a pre-set schedule for your shades to operate on!


Bring the power of outdoor shades to your property and turn your patio into a space you can easily control. Our team at Digital Home Systems is prepared to help.
