Benefits of PowerView® Automation

When we were younger, we often daydreamed about how technology would advance in the future. Perhaps we would take our driver’s test in a flying car or be able to teleport across the country in the blink of an eye. While we haven’t reached these levels of technological advancement yet, we have come a long way from where we used to be! For example, we used to have to rely on pesky cords to adjust our window treatments. This was frustrating, as these cords were finicky at best and annoying at worst. Cords are also a tangling hazard for those who have small children or pets. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas offers a system that eliminates cords all together while providing benefits that you will love adding to your home. Read on to discover the many benefits of PowerView® Automation today!

Benefit 1: Energy Efficiency

High heating and cooling bills are a pain, but no one wants to feel like it’s the outdoors in their own home. Fortunately, one of the benefits of PowerView® Automation is energy efficiency. During the summer months, scheduling your motorized shades to close at midday keeps your home from overheating. This also protects your floors, artwork, and furniture from fading from damaging UV rays. In the wintertime, scheduling them to open during the day will invite natural sunlight to warm your home. With PowerView® Automation, there’s less need for air conditioning and heating throughout the year and more opportunity for energy savings.

Benefit 2: Hands-Free Operation

Are you tired of feeling like a puppeteer with your windows? Then you will love adding PowerView® Automation to the mix. Another one of the benefits of PowerView® Automation is hands-free operation. Whether you’re hurrying out the door for work or in a comfortable position on the sofa during movie night, voice control lets you open and close your shades with a simple verbal command to your smart-home system.

Benefit 3: Custom Operating Options

Of course, you can also operate your window treatments on your smartphone or tablet via the PowerView® App or Pebble® remote control. This hands-free solution allows your home to run smoothly all day long. No more needing to fuss with cords! In fact, you can create customized Scenes that move each of your shades to your preferred positions, then automate the Scenes to operate on their own throughout the day while you are at work or running errands. You can even schedule Scenes to move with the sunrise or sunset based on your location. This will keep your home nice and shaded when the sun is at its peak during the summer. On the flip side, this will open your windows during the winter to let in as much warm lighting as possible. The App is compatible with Apple® and Android™ smartphones and tablets, so you can pair PowerView® Automation with your favorite devices. These are just a few more benefits of PowerView® Automation.
