Control Options Available

When you utilize the smart shades from Hunter Douglas, you have a few options for controlling them. Those options are the PowerView App, the PowerView remote, and the PowerView Gateway. Let's find out more about these control options at your disposal.

The App

You can use the PowerView app in order to control the smart shades. With it, easily activate preset or customized scenes that move each of your shades to their preferred positions and then simply schedule operations on their own throughout the day. The app is compatible with both Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

The Remote

The handheld remote can easily operate up to six groups of window treatments, which gives you an on-demand control. The remote comes in range of fun and stylish colors. There is also the option to select a wall-mounted remote in case you were worried about misplacing the handheld one.

The Gateway

Get the most from the system by adding the PowerView Gateway, which provides users with integration with other manufacturers' smart home systems and gives you access to Remote Connect. This feature allows you to adjust your shades from anywhere in the world! The gateway also acts as a range extender for larger homes and provides the best experience for shades in multiple rooms.

Voice Assistants with Smart Shades

The best technologies act as voice assistants for the smart shades from Hunter Douglas. 

Use It With Alexa

With Alexa, you can activate the shades or scenes with a simple voice command. For example, you can say "Alexa, open kitchen shades" and you do not even need to touch a button to get that natural sunlight pouring into your kitchen. You can enable this feature directly in the app, but will need the PowerView Gateway in order to integrate with Amazon Alexa.

It Work With Google Assistant

Using the Google Assistant makes it easy to control shades individually or through scenes. And since it is powered by Google Home, it is able to distinguish your voice from others in your home, which creates a more personalized experience. Simply say your command, like, "OK Google, close bedroom shades" and you wish will come true. However, like with Alexa, you will need the PowerView Gateway and a device enabled with the Google Assistant in order to connect to your Google account.
