Motorized operating systems have quickly become a popular addition to Hunter Douglas window treatments, and with good reason. Motorized window treatments offer unique benefits that can make your life easier. If you’re considering adding motorized shades and blinds to your home, now is the time to do so.

Benefits of Hunter Douglas Motorized Shades & Blinds for  Windows

  1. Convenience
    Motorized shades for windows add an unmatched convenience to your home with the ability to open, close, or adjust window treatments throughout your home with the push of a button from a remote control, your smartphone or tablet, or using your smart home system. Using the provided remote control or smartphone application for operation, you can set your Hunter Douglas motorized window treatments to the precise position you desire – all from your favorite sofa or chair. It is possible to install motorized shades and blinds in tall windows or skylights since they can be operated using the app or remote. Also, motorized operating systems provide an easy way for those with disabilities to manage their window treatments.
  2. Security
    Motorized window treatments can create the illusion that somebody is home, no matter where you are. Through the application, your shades or blinds can be programmed to raise or lower as desired throughout the day, deterring potential burglars from entering your property.
  3. Energy Saving
    Window treatments can play a major role in lowering your energy bills. Some motorization systems can sense the amount of sun that enters your home throughout the day and can be programmed accordingly to allow or block sunlight from entering your home. This will help increase or decrease heat buildup. During the summer, when solar heat is often a big concern, motorized shades for windows can be programmed to lower automatically to keep a room from overheating. During colder months, your shades can help insulate your windows preventing the warmer air from leaking out.
  4. Cordless Safety
    Since motorized window treatments do not require a cord for operation, they are completely child safe, which provides many benefits. With motorized shades for windows, you don’t have to worry about the safety of your little ones or pets because there aren’t long, dangling cords that can cause injuries. In addition, by eliminating unsightly, long cords, the aesthetics of the blinds are improved.
  5. Smart Features
    PowerView Automation can be operated at home with a remote, or using voice-activated smart devices like Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri®, or the Google Assistant. And when you’re away from home, the PowerView® App on your phone allows you to manage your motorized shades and blinds. You can easily program an opening and closing schedule for your motorized window treatments, and you can even schedule them to open and close based on the changing sunrise or sunset based in your location every day! The ability to close motorized treatments remotely provides added security.
  6. Decor
    If limited options for motorized shades for windows have kept you from upgrading, now more than ever is the perfect time to make the switch. Motorized shades for window can be created from thousands of patterns and fabrics types. You can even add tracks to your existing drapes.
