Motorized Shades & Projector Home Theater | Manhattan High-Rise Apartment

Creating a combination motorized shading and home theater system which works seamlessly is not a problem for DTV Installations. We designed and installed this system for a high-end Midtown Manhattan high-rise apartment, which provided amazing video and fully controlled the Lutron shading system, all from a single remote, while leaving the stunning view of Midtown intact

This gorgeous Midtown high-rise has a spectacular view overlooking Manhattan. The client wanted a projection home theater in a room with large windows showcasing the view; that meant the quality of the electronics had to be complemented by a custom motorized shading system, so ambient light wouldn’t wash out the video display.

We started by installing the necessary equipment in the master bedroom’s closet, to keep it completely out of the way. We then added and programmed an MRF-350 infrared radio frequency extender so everything (including the home theater and the motorized shades) could be controlled by an MX-1200 universal remote control.

Shades also can be synced with each other or operate separately

Next, it was time for the shading. The client chose both the color of the stunning Lutron shades, and the ways in which they could be controlled: from a remote, a smartphone, or buttons located on the wall. We installed the motorized shading to run all the way along the entire length of the apartment – and built custom fasciae to match the look of the apartment, so the shades would appear seamless with no gaps or overlaps visible along the tops of the shades.






Finally, we completed the home theater installation by mounting a large motorized Draper projection screen which rolls down for viewing and retracts completely when not in use, installing a top-of-the-line Optoma projector on a high-end Peerless projector mount, and running electric power to each.

You Got the Home Theater, Now Get Rid of the Glare!

This project took four (4) days to complete, primarily because of the amount of custom fascia work required – but the client was thrilled with the new state-of-the-art home theater and motorized shading system which blends in perfectly with its upscale surroundings and leaves the fabulous view of Manhattan unobscured.


DTV Installations Receives Coveted Status As Lutron Platinum Dealer

Owner John Lysy is pleased to announce that DTV Installations has been received recognition as a Platinum Dealer for Lutron Electronics, the leading company in the lighting control industry. Lutron is revered for its enormous selection of high-quality smart home lighting controls and systems.

As a Platinum Dealer, DTV Installations is now able to offer clients more flexible pricing options, and bigger discounts, than ever before on Lutron products. On large projects, DTV is now also able to offer free design and installation services.

Very few companies are able to quality for Platinum Dealer status. It requires five unblemished years in business – DTV Installations has been operating for 15 successful years. It requires a minimum of $500,000 in retail sales – DTV Installations has far surpassed that level, due to the number of high-end projects requiring extensive experience and knowledge that we’ve completed. And it requires having mentored smaller companies in the industry, which we’re proud to do on a regular basis.

DTV Installations is honored to have been named a Lutron Platinum Dealer, and we look forward to passing on the many benefits of this status to our valued clients.
