Why Hunter Douglas Motorized Shades Are Perfect for Your Home
Motorized blinds and shades have become the new benchmark for homeowners and Hunter Douglas is leading the way. We all understand the benefits of window treatments. They help control room temperature, cut the glare, allow us privacy, provide filtered daylight, and keep our floors and furniture from fading. However, to maximize the benefits of your window treatments they need to be adjusted a few times a day.
Let’s face it, you can spend a lot of time running around the house opening and closing your shades. Motorizing your window treatments with Hunter Douglas PowerView™ will allow you to automate your blinds and shades for those repetitive tasks. It also takes care of the windows in those hard-to-reach areas!
Complete Control in the Palm of Your Hand With PowerView App
To quote the Beatles “It’s getting better all the time”. With just a tap of your smartphone or tablet, you can open, close or tilt your Hunter Douglas PowerView™ blinds and shades by using the Hunter Douglas PowerView App. Designed specifically for Apple® iOS and Android™ devices, the PowerView App is completely free and boasts an easy setup. For Apple® iOS devices, go to the App Store. For Android™ devices, go to the Google Play Store.
Once installed, the app will communicate and control your window treatments via a “PowerView Hub”. The Hub is a small, simple device connected to your home’s wireless network. This allows you to control all of the window coverings in your home by room or shade, in real-time.
Adjust Your Blinds or Shades With the Touch of a Button – Home or Remotely
Use one remote or smart device to control all of your motorized window treatments, or schedule your blind adjustments to automatically occur throughout the day. The PowerView™ App is organized into four primary levels:
- Shades for individual windows
- Rooms to control light in a specific room space
- Schedules can be created to operate the shades during any time of the day or night
- Scenes allow you to position all the shades in a room exactly as you want them with a single touch. Raise or lower the shades or tilt the vanes for control lighting. You can also easily create multi-room scenes, allowing you to operate all the PowerView blinds and shades in you home with a single touch!
How great would it be to open all of your window treatments in the morning with just a touch of a button and close them all at night? Working late, no problem. You can operate your blinds and shades from anywhere with wireless Internet access, even from your workplace.
Added Benefits – Safety, Security, Privacy
The benefits of having Hunter Douglas PowerView™ window treatments using the PowerView App goes well beyond convenience. These motorized blinds and shades provide safety for your home on two levels.
First, they do not require control cords to operate. Removing these cords immediately improves the safety for your children and four-legged family members. It also removes any possible trip hazard for those cords that are not properly controlled.
Secondly, the safety benefit not only includes privacy but also security. When you’re away, place your blinds on a timer, or simply change the position from your smart device a few times a week giving the illusion someone is home. This is another great feature for those times when you’re out of town.
