Award winning product designs

Solar umbrellas with connectivity
Each modern outdoor umbrella works as a standalone product or one of a fleet, depending on the configuration and space. They're also outfitted with familiar and easy-to-use connective technology.
Solar powered shades
ShadeCraft robotic umbrellas are self-powered. They utilize multiple integrated solar panels that are embedded in the canopy to generate and store renewable energy from the sun for continuous operation throughout the day and into the evening. Since you don't need any power cables, you can place these sleek contemporary parasols anywhere on your hardwood deck or patio.
Wi-Fi & Bluetooth enabled
The Blossom and Sunflower umbrellas are both equipped to accommodate LTE cellular connectivity, which enables you to create portable Wi-Fi hotspots wherever you are. Additionally, the sun shades come with Bluetooth® technology already on board, so you can communicate with your other devices to listen to a playlist on your smartphone or tablet.
Control one high-tech parasol or several simultaneously with the SmartShade app from your mobile device. The application gives you full control over all of the technology integrated in your robotic outdoor umbrella.
Smart sensor technology
These contemporary deck umbrellas are equipped with a powerful array of sensors that detect and monitor the qualities of the surrounding area. The Sunflower and Blossom's computers process and translate this data into instructions for their robotic components and information to be read via the mobile application.
Each market umbrella has a sensor that identifies the prevailing wind conditions (including speed and direction) and automatically closes the canopy in inclement weather. This self-management capability helps take the worry out of being away from home and not remembering if you secured your umbrella before the stormy weather hit.
These premium sun shades recognize obstacles positioned around them and won't open if they sense they will be obstructed by a person or object. This handy feature helps prevent injuries to family and friends as well as potential damage to the product itself.
ShadeCraft umbrellas keep track of a wide variety of environmental conditions. They monitor the temperature, humidity, air quality, UV radiation and more to provide microclimate data in real-time through the SmartShade app. The Sunflower tilting umbrella even tracks with the sun throughout the day to optimize solar energy capture and maximize shade.
Electronics built into the parasols
These solar panel umbrellas provide far more amenities than your typical luxury patio umbrella. In addition to automated lift and tilt capabilities (Sunflower only), ShadeCraft robotic umbrellas feature many creature comforts from indoor living that enhance the ambiance of your deck, patio or poolside area.
Premium sound system
High-end speakers from Harman/Kardon provide you with the option to play ambient sounds or your favorite music from your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth-enabled device. If you have multiple umbrellas, you can sync the audio across the fleet or control it individually via Bluetooth at the source.
Just because the sun goes down doesn't mean you have to take the festivities inside. Sunflower and Blossom canopies come with integrated LEDs that light up the dark and transform your outdoor space at night. You can adjust the brightness, change the color and even program them to a schedule.
Charge your electronic device directly from any of the ShadeCraft outdoor umbrellas using the integrated USB port. You and your guests can relax knowing that your cellphone, tablet or laptop will never be without power thanks to the 100% renewable energy of the sun.
