Adding Automated Shades to Homes

As we head into 2021, you may have a few goals on your list. Maybe you are trying want to be able to run a 5k marathon by a certain time, try new recipes, or see new sights.  However, if you have the goal of making life easier where you can, then we have a wonderful suggestion for you: adding automated shades to your home! Designed with innovation in mind, Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation allows you to effortlessly control your window treatments with your phone, tablet, Pebble® Control, or smart-home device. This means that you no longer have to battle hard-to-reach windows, turn around to shut the shades because you forgot to do so, or getting out of that comfy part of the couch during the middle of a movie to adjust the shades. Read on to discover the many benefits of adding automated shades to your home.

Custom Scheduling

There is no telling what each day is going to look like. That is why one of the benefits of adding automated shades to the mix is custom scheduling. With the PowerView® App, you can create custom schedules that will adjust your window treatments ahead of time or in real time. For example, if you create a “Goodbye” schedule that closes your shades every weekday morning at 8 AM, you will never have to worry about adjusting your shades before leaving for work. You can also create a “Sunday Morning” schedule that gently opens your blinds so you can enjoy the sunrise with your Sunday breakfast. No matter what the day holds, you shouldn’t spend a second wasted on adjusting your window treatments multiple times a day. This is just one of the many benefits of adding PowerView® Automation to your home.

Plenty of Options

Are you not necessarily a big app person? No worries! You can still enjoy the benefits of adding automated shades to your home. For example, the Pebble® Control allows you to control up to six window treatments at once or independently with just the click of a button. This makes this remote-control device perfect for controlling window treatments that are hard to reach. Another perk? This sleek device comes in a variety of colors and easily mounts on your wall.

Hands-Free Operation

Speaking of options, you can also opt for a hands-free route when adding automated shades to your home. In fact, PowerView® Automation is compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple’s Siri. This means that you can control your window treatments with the sound of your voice. Simply say, “Okay, Google. Shut the living room blinds” or “Siri, open the blinds tomorrow at 9 AM” and let PowerView® Automation do the rest. It goes without saying that this voice control option makes a great party trick when you entertain friends and family!
