Hunter Douglas PowerView® technology is a revolutionary system that automatically moves your window treatments throughout the day so you don’t have to. Program your shades to create the perfect ambiance for morning, noon, and night. Set them to open and rise to just the right height in the morning, block out afternoon sun, and close at sunset. Operate your window treatments with your smartphone, a remote control, or voice command via your home automation system like Alexa or Apple HomeKit.

You can motorize every window treatment in your home or motorize one particular window treatment. Here are common situations where automation is recommended:


Don’t get out a step stool every time you need to raise, lower, or open the shades on windows that are out of reach. Windows in stairwells, behind the kitchen sink, behind the bathtub, skylights, and two-story windows can all benefit from a motorized operating system.


Window treatments that never move might as well be a written invitation to burglars. PowerView automation can move your window coverings throughout the day, giving the illusion that someone is home. The Remote Connect™ feature allows you to operate your window treatments from anywhere in the world.


The window coverings industry uses warning tags, labels, and other methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window coverings. Because motorized treatments lack lift cords, they’re a safer option than shades with exposed cords for both kids and pets.


With PowerView® you can schedule shades to automatically raise and lower throughout the day to prevent harsh summer rays from heating interiors and prevent heat loss in the winter. This feature can save you money on your energy bills.


Window treatments can have a huge impact on sleep quality. Pair blackout window treatments with PowerView automation and program them to close at a certain time each night. Use this as your cue to wind down for the evening. Set your window treatments to automatically open with the sunrise or at your specified wake time.

Automated window treatments are about more than convenience. They solve a variety of issues, offer safety measures and energy benefits, and create a beautiful ambiance in your home all day and evening. Contact Drapery Street for your complimentary automation design consultation.
