Serena remote-controlled shades offer incredible value at an affordable price, backed by the quality of the Lutron brand. These shades feature Triathlon™ power technology, which provides a 3-year battery life. So your shades will work for years before you’ll need to replace the batteries. And because they operate via a remote, you can adjust them from anywhere in the room. We offer two types of remotes for controlling Serena shades: an infrared and a radio frequency remote†. Learn about the differences between them below.
