Product Detail

Graber introduces Virtual Cord Z-Wave integrated Overture sheer shades as their next tech-integrated iteration of smart window treatments. The simply elegant overture sheer shades comprise of lightweight fabric vanes encased within two layers of sheer fabric offering effortless light control. These Z-Wave powered smart shades can be rotated as the sunlight changes using patented Graber Virtual cords to allow optimum light filtration and protection from the sun’s UV rays.

Overture sheer shades combine the beauty of a sheer with the privacy of a shade as they can be adjusted to showcase the view by softly diffusing the light or provide privacy when both layers of fabric overlap. With the help of compatible Z-wave home automation hubs, control through smartphones, automation and voice control (requires Z-wave hub compatible with Amazon Echo or Google Home) features are available and simply enhance the beauty of Overture sheer shades making a statement of luxury.

In addition to the unparalleled light control features, the overture sheer shades protect your belongings by filtering out harmful UV rays while providing an outside view. The included Z-wave remote control allows you to safely rise and lower the shade eliminating the vulnerability of strangling due to dangling cords in homes with small kids and pets. The clean profiles of fabric -wrapped cassette valances allow the head rails to fully retract the sheer shades at consistent speed making negligible noise.

The embedded Z-Wave chip inside the Graber Overture sheer shades support most the Z-Wave compatible Smart hubs (contact customer service for details) enabling the users to control it with smartphones; as well as set up automations based on time, weather, and various other sensors that work with the smarthub. The shades can be operated with the single channel RF remotes within 65 feet (Appx 20m) proximity which virtually covers your entire home. The virtual cord overture sheer shades have five years of Graber® assured warranty on the components and accessories excluding the batteries.


Further, the Z-Wave powered Overture sheer shades have been tested by ZebraBlinds to work best with Samsung SmartThings for smartphone control and automation. If a compatible Voice assistant is connected to SmartThings, you enable hands-free operation and convenience Voice assistants. The light filtering sheer shades give your windows a luminous glow in addition to moderate privacy whereas the room darkening shades provide complete privacy when closed.

The virtual cord z-wave motors and accessories are backed by a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

Looks great, low price and great service

I was very skeptical when I first found ZebraBlinds because I got a quote for the same shades, with a somfy motor for 3 times higher than Zebra. Spoke with customer service multiple times and finally decided to order one shade as a test. It was the exact same product and was very easy to install. I just placed an order for the rest of the house. The shade works well, closes and opens properly and lets me see out and the best part is that this version has the smart motors. Jeff from customer service suggested getting a SmartThings hub and pairing the shade to the hub. Now I can schedule them, control them with my phone and have them hooked up to my Amazon Echo. 10/10 would buy again and highly recommend.

Purchased these since ZebraBlinds say they are smart and it's true. I had no clue on how these work or how to get them working and ended up having to call them and speak to their customer service and boy are they knowledgeable. Joe spoke with me for over an hour, explaining how these work, the pros, the cons and helping me order samples. The shades ordered arrived in about 3 weeks after placing the order and I connected it to a SmartThings hub as Joe recommended and they work so well. I highly recommend.

Better than lutron

Reviewed on 2/2/19, By Michael Mig

Works well with my homeseer hometroller sel and great build quality and service. The only negative I would say is the light gaps on either side a bit larger than I thought they would be but looking at the product page they do list it there. As good or better than HD silhouettes and more functionality. Customer service is great too! Also when pricing these guys out with Lutron, Lutron is twice as expensive and don't even offer the sheer style.
