Motorized shades offer a modern style and elegance at the touch of a button, but why should you really install them in your home? Drapery Street has the details.

1. They Can Operate Themselves – Hunter Douglas’ PowerView® technology is a revolutionary new system that automatically moves your shades throughout the day, so you don’t have to. Program your shades to open and rise to just the right height in the morning, adjust to block out afternoon sun and close at night. They work with a Pebble remote control, Amazon Echo or Alexa, Apple HomeKit or an app.

You can even adjust any room’s blinds or shades to one of several pre-programmed “scenes” of your choosing.

2. They Can Increase the Energy Efficiency of Your Home – Automated operation of motorized window coverings makes it easier to realize energy efficiency benefits. Hunter Douglas’ PowerView technology can work with other devices like your Nest® smart thermostat, adjusting to maintain your home’s temperature and optimizing energy savings.

3. Safety and Security – You can activate scenes from anywhere in the world on your phone, creating the illusion of being home even when you’re traveling.

Cordless, automated blinds are an invaluable safety feature in homes with children and pets.

To integrate PowerView technology into your entire home and be truly satisfied with the results, it’s important to choose the right partner to assist you. Drapery Street’s installers are experienced in integration with home automation systems and never use subcontractors.
