Why Choose Smart Shades?

These Hunter Douglas motorized blinds and smart shades provide users with an array of great features. Here are some of the more notable reasons why you should add smart shades to your home decor.

Added Convenience

Easily Control Shades with the press of a button, a tap on your mobile device, with your voice, or automatically through scheduled programming.

Increased Privacy

With smart shades, you can schedule the shades to automatically close and increase the privacy inside your home.

More Energy Efficient

When you schedule your shades to raise and lower at certain times, you can do so in a way that warms or cools your home depending on the time of day, where the sun it, and what season it is. If you do it right, you can save money on energy by keeping your home cool or warm at opportune times.

Improved Security

With smart shades, you can give your home a lived-in look while you are away by scheduling them to automatically raise and lower at certain times. Giving outsiders the illusion that someone is home.

Safer for Children

Since smart shades lack lift cords, they are a safer option than shades with exposed cords.

Bluetooth Capabilities 

Thanks to Bluetooth technology, your shades will always be where you want them, when you want them. This Bluetooth features real-time, two-way communication with your shades for immediate resolution. Simply press the button and you will get the shades to operate right away.

Benefits of Scheduling Times For Your Motorized Shades

One of the key benefits of the shades being motorized with PowerView Automation is the fact that you can control them simply using the PowerView App. Use the app to set up schedules, so the shades will automatically open and close exactly when you want them to do it. This allows for everyday convenience and less of a worry of thinking about when to open or close these shades. Here are some more key benefits of being able to schedule times for your shades to open and close.

  • Enhance the overall security of the home by scheduling the shades to move at set times, which gives your home a lived-in look while you're away. Perfect for long vacations!
  • In the summer, you can schedule the shades to close during the day to keep the house cooler and save on the electricity bill.
  • When it is winter and cold outside, letting in the sunlight is a great way to heat your home with natural lighting.
  • You have the ability to schedule all shades in your home to close at night for added privacy and a night-time feel.
  • Wake up with your bedroom shades instead of a noisy alarm. Fill your bedroom with that nice morning light and gently wake up with the sunlight.
  • Schedule your kitchen shades to open during breakfast time, so you can get more morning sunshine with your cup of coffee.

FAQs About Hunter Douglas Smart Shades & Motorized Blinds

How Are The Motorized Shades Powered?

The motorized shades are powered in a few ways, including with plug-in power operations or simply with batteries. Hard-wired motorized shades are possible if you are building a new home and integrating these shades into the circuit boards.

What is a Scene?

A scene is a predetermined shade level that you can create using the app and can do a scene for any number of rooms. For example, you can create a "movie time" scene in the app that will close the shades in your home to match how you like the lighting for a movie. You can also have a setting just for the morning, so you get the exact amount of light to start your day. Create a scene for any number of reasons, like time of day, time of week, etc. And get the perfect lighting for your home 24/7!

Do Schedules Auto Update For Daylight Savings Time?

Yes, the schedules in the app will automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time, which is a nuisance we all live through twice a year.
