  • Traditional wall switches or remotes
  • By a Smart Phone Apps that allow you to control you shades remotely or program when you wish your shades to go up and down automatically throughout the day.
  • Whole-Home automation system such as Lutron HomeWorks, Crestron or MechoShade Net based systems
  •  “App” based DIY systems such as Amazon Alexa, Apple Home Kit, Nest, IFTT, and more.

Let Your Window Coverings Work for You With PowerView® Motorization

With the Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization system, you can program your blinds and shades to open, close, tilt and traverse throughout the day…even when you are away from home! You can use a PowerView Pebble® remote, smartphone or tablet to program the window treatments.

Let the experts at Blinds & Designs demonstrate how fast and easy it is to program your blinds and shades using the PowerView Pebble remote or with the PowerView App. Programming your window coverings can even give the appearance of being at home while you’re out of town.

With the new PowerView Motorization App, you can preset your blinds to operate together or as a small group or individually. Try programming your blinds and shades based on the season to ensure maximum daylight and to save energy at the window. You can also connect with the system when you are out of the house. The Remote Connect™ feature, along with an Internet connection, allows you to control your blinds and shades from anywhere in the world using your smartphone or tablet.

Motorization for Children and Pets

If you have young children or pets, you may want to consider motorization. Motorized blinds and shades are cordless, which eliminates dangling cords. Our design team will explain all of the products available with this system. Most PowerView motorized window coverings are battery-operated, which makes them easy to install, maintain and operate. The battery pack is hidden behind the headrail, so nothing clutters your window coverings.
