Hunter Douglas is known for the top-quality window treatments. They are also known for their innovation and engineering. Their research and development team is always making technological strides when it comes to window treatment materials and design. PowerView® Automation is the result of all of that hard work. At North County Blind Company Inc., we are thrilled to offer PowerView® Automation packages on nearly every type of window treatment. Here are some of the benefits of automation.
The integrated PowerView® smartphone application allows you control over every single one of your window treatments. You no longer need to move from your couch, your bed, or your hotel room across the country in order to raise the shades in your bedroom or open the blinds in the kitchen. Our Pebble® Remotes can each control up to six window treatments, allowing you centralized control of entire rooms or even a few rooms. PowerView® can also be integrated with your existing smart home system so you can control your curtains with the sound of your voice.
Unlike some other automation systems, PowerView® Automation has several power options. Power wands, which are available as either battery-powered or rechargeable, can be mounted in the headrail for concealment. If your window treatment is difficult to reach, the power wands can also be satellite-mounted to the wall so that you can switch batteries or recharge without having to reach all the way to the headrail. For more consistent power, there is an 18V DC power supply that plugs directly into your wall. If you have a little more flexibility in design, or you are doing a home renovation or new construction, you can install a 16-shade DC power supply. Your shades will be directly wired into your home's electrical grid.
The PowerView® app also allows you to create preset scenes that can be easily switched between. Find the perfect light level for a romantic dinner, and once the scene has been programmed, you can return to it with the click of a button. Your shades can be programmed to follow the path of the sun and let in or block out light as you choose throughout the day. You also have the option to set scenes to activate at specific times of the day. This can allow you to wake up to natural sunlight in the morning or make it seem that your home is occupied while you are away on vacation.
