Convenience is a way of life these days. Our lives are moving quickly, and we don’t like to be distracted by the little things. From quick meals to automatic payments, we have customized the human experience so that we have more time and energy to spend on the things we enjoy. With smart home systems, we can control electronics in our homes and are nearly able to do anything without having to interrupt our current activities. One of the few manual devices that still seems to persist are our window treatments. However, with Rainbow Paint’s motorized window treatments from Hunter Douglas, stopping your activities, getting up or stretching at odd angles just to adjust your window coverings can be a thing of the past.
By utilizing motorized window treatments, you can simplify your life and improve the safety and efficiency of your home. Imagine you are working on a small project and realize you need a little more light—not much, but you need the shade completely raised. At this point, you’d either have to wait for someone else in your home to assist you or stop what you are doing and go adjust the shade. With motorized shades, you could simply pull out your mobile device, quickly adjust the shade and continue with your work. Plus, with no cords needed to control your window treatments, you can remove a choking hazard from your home. With motorized window coverings, you don’t have to worry about cords becoming a safety issue for your pets or children. Finally, since the products are all controlled with a remote or mobile device, you can also set a schedule for the operation of them.
The features of PowerView® Motorization are innovative; the system won the 2018 Red Dot Design Award which appraises the best products created each year. With this operating system, you can program the exact settings for your window coverings to your liking. Once you’ve done this, you have multiple options for continuing to control them such as the PowerView® app, the PowerView® Pebble® Control and voice activation through smart home systems. First, the PowerView® app allows you to create certain settings scenarios called Scenes. Using the Automations feature, you can then schedule these Scenes to operate at certain times of the day no matter where you are. The scheduling feature can also be matched to sunrise or sunset using your location data. If you prefer a remote control for your window treatments, the PowerView® Pebble® Control lets you preset six different groupings and operate them individually or as a unit.
If you are already using smart home systems such as Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit or Google Assistant, then it is time to consider upgrading your window coverings to Hunter Douglas products with PowerView® Motorization. After all, every minute counts, so why spend time maintaining your window covering preferences when they can be scheduled with a quick touch?
