Homeowners across Western Canada seek to leverage natural light, which is bountiful in regions such as Edmonton, Northern Alberta, and the BC Southern Interior. Doing so reduces reliance on electrical lighting systems from dawn until dusk. Sunlight management also plays an important role in heating regional homes in the autumn, winter, and early spring while mitigating the need for air-conditioning during the late spring and summer. As a result, web-enabled shading systems are replacing traditional window coverings. They allow for customized management of natural light to reduce one’s carbon footprint while keeping electrical expenses relatively low. The right system can also improve functional living and may enhance interior and exterior design. 

In recent memory, homeowners have been challenged to find an all-in-one solution. However, many are beginning to hear about one system that checks all of the boxes; Lutron’s Sivoia QS Triathlon. As a Lutron installer in Alberta and Eastern BC, we can tell homeowners firsthand that Sivoia QS Triathlon is winning the race when it comes to the full package of flexibility, reliability, and aesthetic design. Let’s review.

How Lutron Sivoia QS Triathlon Offers One of the Most Reliable Natural Light Management Solutions for Homes in Western Canada 

Intelligent Natural Light Management

This web-enabled system can be programmed for on-premises voice, keypad, and Pico smart remote control in addition to being managed from anywhere in the world via the Lutron app (available at Apple or Google Play). This state-of-the-art intelligence provides for both dependable scheduling and spontaneous action as needed.

Available in All Primary Window Treatment Styles

Homeowners are often constrained by treatment styles when buying motorized window coverings. They may like one brand’s functional features, but if that brand doesn’t offer the treatment style they desire they often settle for an inferior brand that does. Aesthetics are often chosen above all else when it comes to window coverings. Lutron Sivoia QS Triathlon however, comes available as a roller shade, honeycomb shade, and wooden blind. Homeowners no longer have to choose between function and style.

Enhances Interior Design

As per the introduction, Sivoia QS Triathlon is ideal for homeowners who place great importance on aesthetics. Between the three treatment styles (roller shade, honeycomb shade, and wood blinds) there are hundreds of fabrics and materials to choose from. Available in sizes of up to 12-feet in height and width (roller shades), the installation can become the focal point of one’s interior or serve as an accent to the grand design. 

Fabric options for the roller shades include the following:

  • Sheer
  • Translucent 
  • Blackout

Top treatment options for the roller shades include the following:

  • Architectural Fascia
  • Fabric-Wrapped Fascia
  • Exposed Headrail

Perpetually Powered

Whether a homeowner opts for the battery-powered or wired system, they won’t have to worry about sustaining function. The battery-powered version uses standard store-bought D-cell batteries, with a Battery Boost option available to extend battery life up to 80% or up to 7 years. When the once or twice in a decade necessity presents itself, the system’s innovative headrail can be tipped forward to open the battery tray for quick replacement without having to remove the shades or blinds. Meanwhile, the hard wired solution provides for endless convenience.

Peace and Quiet

For optimal efficiency, motorized window coverings are often programmed to open in the early morning and shutter at night. These are resting/sleeping hours for many household occupants. Unfortunately, traditional motorized options are generally noisy and bothersome. Sivoia QS Triathlon, however, has been designed with precision to open and close without producing any significant noise.
