There are a few factors to consider when choosing a motorized window shade. For example, you will need to consider the power source. The most common power source is batteries. However, you can also choose to use an AC adapter. The disadvantage of using a power adapter is that you will need to run power cords all the way down the window. A newer option for power is the use of Power over ethernet. Power over ethernet is a unique way to power a shade without running power cords down the window.
