Compatible Smart Home Systems
Hunter Douglas Integrates PowerView® Automation with Compatible Smart Home Systems to Support Personalized, Home Automation
PEARL RIVER, NY (May 2018)—Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of custom window treatments, is expanding the compatibility of its innovative wireless operating system, PowerView® Automation, to create more personalized, convenient living. This intelligent system allows users to control most Hunter Douglas window treatments via remote control, on their mobile device using the PowerView App, and now users can move shades to their desired position with a simple voice command.
PowerView Automation, which is already compatible with popular home automation systems such as Logitech® and Control4®, has added leading voice-activated smart devices to their repertoire by integrating with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. This compatibility makes operation of Hunter Douglas smart shades easier and more convenient than ever by allowing users to adjust their shades according to their daily routines.
The Hunter Douglas motorized system enables users to program their window treatments to operate on their own throughout the day. The PowerView App is used to create Scenes, pre-programmed shade positions such as raising to greet the dawn, readjusting to deflect the hot afternoon sun, or closing at night to create a private retreat. The Scenes can be programmed to personalized settings such as “movie time” or “good morning” which, when activated either with a user’s voice command, PowerView App or remote control, will automatically bring the window treatments to a desired height and adjustment allowing in only the desired amount of light.
These PowerView Automation enhancements allow homeowners to create their own smart environment that works with their lifestyle and gives them the power to control their home’s privacy, light and heat in the easiest way possible.
