Types of Motorized Blinds and Motorized Shades

Motorized blinds and shades are a great way to update your home for added simplicity in your life. Hunter Douglas has a few motorized options for window treatments that would all make a great addition to any home. Let Blind & Drapery Corner, where we serve all customers in the greater Naples, East Naples, and Marco Island area, explain the different types of motorized blinds and motorized shades so you can see the benefits of each.

PowerView® Motorization

PowerView® Motorization is Hunter Douglas’ most advanced operation system. PowerView® can be installed in a newly constructed or existing home because no additional wiring is required for this operation system to function. Batteries will power these shades for up to a year, and offer you simplicity for your everyday life. Operated with either the Pebble® Remote, Pebble® Scene Controller, or the PowerView® App, this motorization system allows you to control the windows in your home with the click of a button. Program your shades to open whenever is convenient for your schedule. PowerView® Motorization can also help cut down on your energy costs by utilizing this schedule. You can make sure your shades close during the hottest and coldest parts of the day, which will block heat from entering or leaving through your windows, and prevent your heating or air conditioning unit from constantly running to maintain your preferred temperature.

Platinum™ Wall Switch for Motorized Shades and Blinds

The Platinum™ Wall Switch operation system is hardwired into your wall and designed for precise control of your blinds and shades. This modernly stylish operation system fits the standard sized Decora™ switch and utilizes two intermediate stop positions for your blinds, which allow for optimum levels of light filtration in your home. This operation system can be integrated into any home automation system with limited amounts of hassle and can even be controlled with the Platinum™ remote control for an even greater range of control options for your window treatments. When you choose to use the remote control, window coverings can be controlled in groups or individually depending on what lighting you need in your home.

PowerTilt™ for Motorized Blinds

The PowerTilt battery-powered system allows you to easily tilt and position the slats of your horizontal blinds in any way that satisfies your lighting needs. Because this system is entirely battery operated, there is no extra wiring required and your installation process is as easy as can be. Batteries will power this operation system for over a year before they need to be changed. The PowerTilt™ battery-powered operation system functions with the Platinum Remote or Wall Switch mentioned above. Simply press the up or down button and the slats of your Hunter Douglas blinds will tilt accordingly without you ever needing to leave your seat.
