In recent years, the rise of smart homes has brought about a new wave of innovation in window treatments. With the integration of technology, it has become easier than ever to control and automate the opening and closing of blinds and shades with the touch of a button or a simple voice command.


One company that has been at the forefront of this technological revolution is Hunter Douglas® with their PowerView® motorization system. Available in many different shade styles, this advanced system allows homeowners to control their shades with their mobile devices, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and even the PowerView Pebble® remote control.

The Magic of Motorized Shades


In the fast-paced world we live in, convenience is key. And when it comes to making our lives easier, automated window treatments are a game-changer. Motorized shades, with their advanced technology and innovative features, offer a level of convenience that was previously unimaginable.


With the PowerView® system, homeowners have the freedom to control their window coverings from anywhere, enjoy the convenience of rechargeable battery wands with extended battery life, and experience the benefits of smart living made easy. Not only that, but motorized blinds and shades are perfect for tall or hard-to-reach windows and skylights.


As smart homes continue to grow in popularity, motorized shades and the PowerView® system are becoming must-have features for those seeking an innovative and user-friendly solution to window treatments.


One of the biggest benefits of motorized shades is energy efficiency. With the ability to schedule shades to open and close at specific times of the day, homeowners can optimize natural light and reduce their reliance on artificial lighting. This not only saves energy but can also lower utility bills.


Privacy is another important aspect that motorized shades address. With a simple tap on your favorite device or a voice command to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, you can instantly close the shades and create a private oasis in your home. This is particularly beneficial for those living in busy urban areas or near neighbors.


Security and child safety are also enhanced with motorized shades. By being able to control the window coverings even when you're away from home, you can create the illusion of being present, deterring potential intruders. Additionally, the absence of cords or chains in motorized shades eliminates the risk of accidents, making them a safe option for families with young children or pets.


The magic of motorized shades lies in their ability to seamlessly integrate with your smart home system. Whether it's through a mobile device, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or the PowerView Pebble® remote control, you have full control at your fingertips. With the Hunter Douglas® PowerView® motorization system, you can effortlessly adjust your shades to your desired position, all with a simple tap or voice command.
