Take Control

Control the skylights and blinds in HGTV® Smart Home 2017 with a tap of the touch screen remote control. Tap to open the skylights–powered by a small solar panel–drawing in fresh air and releasing old, stale air. Don’t worry about summer storms; a rain sensor automatically closes the skylights at the first sign of bad weather. Need to darken the room? Tap to close the solar powered blinds, which give you total control over the light.

Airy gathering place

Skylights provide balanced, natural light in the loft of the HGVT Smart Home 2015.

Blue hues show true

Natural light from above allows the loft’s blue palette to show true because the light fills the space without glare.

Architecturally it looks really cool and it brings in a lot of light. I also like the fact that it brings in fresh air - that open breeziness - especially up here on the second floor where it would typically be hotter. I think it’s a nice touch.
