Motorization For Window Treatments
PowerView® Automation gives you precise and convenient control of your Hunter Douglas window treatments. Shades operate independently, moving only when you choose to schedule them.
Motorization of Windows
At Read Design, we have custom motorized solutions for window treatments. We have a range of motorized solutions that include hard-wired and battery-operated choices for remote or wall switch operation for your window treatments, draperies, window blinds, and window shades. We work with the leading integrators to ensure a seamless operation.
Motorization makes operating your window treatments easier than ever, and it also can help protect your interior against heat and sun while maintaining your view. From motorized drapery track systems to automated blinds and shades, we can help you implement a motorization system that’s perfect for you.
PowerView® Automation enables intelligent operation of the most popular Hunter Douglas window treatments. Through its wireless technology, homeowners can adjust window treatments to control natural light throughout the home with the simple press of a button or tap on a mobile device, or through the automated operation. PowerView® Automation merges seamlessly with a connected lifestyle and provides a level of ease and convenience that is the crowning touch for Hunter Douglas window treatments.
Your PowerView® shades will always be exactly where you want them, when you want them, thanks to Bluetooth® technology.
Use the PowerView® App to easily activate pre-set or customized scenes that move each of your shades to your preferred positions, then schedule those scenes to operate on their own throughout the day. The App is compatible with Apple® and Android™ smartphones and tablets.
The handheld Pebble® Remote is a modern answer to clunky remote controls of the past. This remote easily operates up to six groups of window treatments, gives you on-demand control and comes in a range of stylish colors.
For easy installation, operation and maintenance, most PowerView® systems are battery-powered, and can include the environmentally friendly Rechargeable Battery Wand.
Hunter Douglas designs with safety in mind. This is a responsibility we take very seriously.
