Smart blinds, electric blinds, and automatic blinds are all window treatments, and like everything else these days, they have joined the ever-growing world of technology. And we couldn’t be happier!

Hunter Douglas has given us the gift of automated window blinds and treatments called PowerView Motorization. These high-tech, electric blinds and shades actually anticipate your needs by automatically adjusting to create the perfect ambiance at every point of the day. And because we are a society of “convenience comes first,” you can control your window treatments with two kinds of Pebble controls or through your smartphone. Let’s take a closer look:

Remote Control Blinds with a Push of a Button

Pebble Remote Control: These remote control blinds allow you to preset and operates up to six different groups of window treatments (either individually or together) with just a push of a button. And they also come in seven stylish colors because who doesn’t love to accessorize with home décor!

Electric Blinds you Control with an App

The PowerView App & Hub: These both go hand in hand. The PowerView App lets you create and schedule your customized room scenes that allow your window coverings to operate on their own throughout the day. And now with it’s new updates, you can activate scenes from anywhere in the world with the Remote Connect feature and synchronize with other smart home devices.

The PowerView Hub is the tool that allows you to control all your window treatments from your newly synchronized smart devices. And now with the newly updated Hub, Hub (Gen 2), you can incorporate your PowerView treatments with your home operating systems, like Amazon Echo & Alexa, Apple Home and more so you have one fluid home experience!

Hunter Douglas also uses software called IFTTT, which stands for “if this then that.” With IFTTT, you’re able to create connections between many different applications (called channels) like Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Gmail, etc. that allow you to control your room scenes from literally anywhere. For example, you can send an email message that contains a hashtag trigger to activate any of your Powerview scenes. It doesn’t get much handier than that!

Smart Blinds are a Breeze to Install

Another great feature is that most PowerView window treatments are battery powered. This makes them incredibly easy to install, operate and maintain. The battery pack is conveniently hidden behind the head rail so there’s nothing that will damage your fabulous shades or blinds. And now the app can notify you when the battery power is low!

Along with the advantage of battery-powered operation, PowerView is completely cordless, creating a safer environment for young children and pets. Giving you the luxury of peace of mind.
