Motorized Shades

Want to know what we can do for you
Perhaps motorized blinds will be the finishing touch on your smart home, or perhaps you realized you simply had to have them during a recent hotel stay. Whatever it was that piqued your interest in today’s automated blinds and shades they are becoming increasingly popular as the are easy-to-use, convenient and are a stunning addition to your home or office.

True Convenience

Though opening and shutting blinds and shades is not in itself such an onerous task, consider what else is associated with opening and shutting your blinds: Untangling the cord, making sure the blinds are oriented in the right direction, making sure they are even.
Now, repeat this process across all of the windows in all of the rooms of your home. It’s no wonder that many people leave their shades in the same position day in and day out! It’s just easier.
With PowerView™ Pebble™ Remote, you can choreograph exactly how light will play throughout your home and simplify your life with a single remote in the palm of your hand.

Saving Energy, Save Money

People who make the switch to motorized blinds often do so because they are interested in home energy management. If this is important to you, then motorized blinds or shades can offer some attractive benefits: When you coordinate your shade position with the position of the sun, not only do you reduce your energy consumption, but you reduce costly energy bills.
Consider also then how much energy that same household expends cooling a room that bakes in the sun all day or heating a room that could be warmed by the sun. As part of your heating and cooling system, motorized shades help you make smart energy decisions, enhance the comfort of your home, and save money. That’s a win-win-win for those looking to green their homes!

Customize Your Light Control

The New Hunter Douglas PowerView™ motorized operating system lets you customize your perfect combination of light, privacy and warmth, keeping your home perfectly in sync with time of day and mood. Allowing you to create your own smart home control system that transforms your home from not only beautiful but also responsive to your needs! So you don’t have to worry motorization over style because a motorized solution can work and enhance almost any style of blind you desire.  Including;Roman or woven shades, roller shades, Silhouette, Luminette, Pirouette, pleated or cellular shades.

Good Blinds Make Good Neighbors

In addition to all of the light control and aesthetic benefits, motorized blinds have important security benefits as well. Much as you might put a light on a timer while you are away on vacation or for a long weekend, the simple act of changing the position of your blinds can make it appear to outsiders that someone is at home. If you are interested in building more low-key yet effective security measures into your home’s daily routine, Adjust window treatments for temperature, privacy and security from across the room or across the world, using the RemoteConnect™ feature in the PowerView App.
While your motorized blinds will not take the place of an actual home alarm system, they can be an important component of making your home safer.

Protect Your Furniture

Another important benefit of motorized blinds is that, when timed with the time of day, they can protect furniture, photos, and art from sun damage. Our intuitive PowerView™ App for Apple® and Android™ mobile devices is designed to complement your lifestyle. Create Scenes to balance different lighting and privacy needs throughout the day.
Instead of allowing your prized possessions to bleach and bake in the sun, simply calculate when peak sun hours are in a specific room, and schedule your motorized blinds to close during that time period.

Better yet, Somfy also offers sun sensor technology, which detects when sun hits the window and closes your blinds accordingly. When the sun moves on, your blinds can open up and let the gentler light in, keeping furniture, photos, floors, walls, and art light and bright!
