Hunter Douglas PowerView Provides Ultimate Convenience
Hunter Douglas is helping homes achieve a higher level of intelligence. Imagine: the industry’s most innovative collection of custom window treatments, digitally programmed to automatically raise, lower, tilt and traverse exactly how and when you want them, even when you are far from home. Hunter Douglas has achieved this–and much more—with PowerView™ Motorization.
Further elevating connected-home opportunities for today’s homeowners, PowerView now works with Nest, a pairing that offers users a host of advantages. Nest Rush Hour settings allow users to take advantage of their shades’ insulating properties when closed, maintaining interior temperatures and reducing energy use. And when Nest senses they’re away, shades can be closed to keep the home comfortable and secure for their return. PowerView also integrates with a number of other whole-home automation systems, including IFTTT, Logitech, Savant, Control4 and more, offering customers maximum flexibility.
With PowerView™ Motorization, Hunter Douglas is providing an unprecedented level of customized brainpower, wedding it to nearly every style of window treatment in its extensive portfolio and delivering smart, stylish solutions designed to simplify today’s busy lifestyle.
PowerView allows users to easily adjust any or all of a room’s window treatments with the artfully designed Pebble™Remote. Sensuously shaped and loaded with extraordinary functionality, the Pebble design is emblematic of this new era in window décor, with two models offered in seven on-trend colors.
Beautiful Shades, Moving On Schedule
For more advanced control, the PowerView App is available on Apple® iOS and Android™ mobile devices, and is brought to life by the PowerView Hub.
With the App, customized Scenes can be created to control all the treatments in a home in any combination of positions to fit the mood or activity—raising to greet the morning, readjusting to deflect the hot afternoon sun, closing at night to create a tranquil retreat, or any other setting that suits the moment.
Scenes can be scheduled to operate automatically at set times so you never have to give them a second thought, or activated on demand using the Pebble Scene Controller. Scenes can even be linked to local sunrise and sunset times—precisely calculated by PowerView, based on its knowledge of the specific location, and activated from anywhere in the world using the RemoteConnect™ feature.
The intelligence that PowerView Motorization brings to a home extends beyond its digital connectivity to impact environmental sustainability and pocketbooks as well.
With up to 50 percent of a home’s energy potentially lost through its windows, Hunter Douglas has long made it a mission to develop innovative window treatments that reduce this loss, conserving energy and helping homeowners save on heating and cooling costs. Now, in coupling its window treatments with PowerView Motorization, the company is multiplying the potential for energy savings with the ability to sync Scenes to daylight schedules. One can even create IFTTT "recipes" that activate Scenes in response to climate, specific weather conditions and Mother Nature’s other influencing factors.
PowerView is an empowering concept that, along with maximizing energy efficiency, allows users to personalize and orchestrate other key benefits, such as the light management, privacy and ambiance that Hunter Douglas window treatments promise. Battery-powered means the treatments are especially easy to install, and cordless operation creates an even safer environment for children and pets.
With PowerView Motorization, Hunter Douglas pushes the boundaries, integrating technology to enable users to wirelessly control, time, set and choreograph their shades to suit their schedule. Now, the world’s most beautiful window treatments are also the most intelligent.
