Xspot addresses this issue directly with an innovative solution for motorized blinds, which garnered significant attention at CEDIA.
Introducing "The Groove": Xspot's motorized blinds solution starts with a game-changing wire endpoint called "The Groove." This compact device is designed for easy installation, as it compression fits into a 1-inch wide by 2-inch tall hole drilled into the header. Wires are securely attached to the Groove, which is then pushed flush with the surface of the header, and can be safely covered with sheet rock, burying and protecting the wire. This ensures a clean and professional look and eliminates the risk of dangling wires. The Groove is easily found with Xspot's new locator tool designed for small spaces, the Quantum.
