HUNTER DOUGLAS INTRODUCES
NEW POWERVIEW™ MOTORIZATION
~ Intelligent Shades that Simplify Your Life ~
PEARL RIVER, N.Y., Oct. 23, 2015 – In a brilliant evolution in the Art of Window Dressing that is both beautiful and smart, Hunter Douglas introduces PowerView™ motorization. The company’s most intelligent system yet, PowerView has been designed with one objective in mind: to simplify your life. And, it does just that on the industry’s most extensive collection of custom window fashions – so the choice is yours.
This all-new wireless technology fits perfectly with today’s connected lifestyle. It lets you control all of your window treatments from your smartphone, tablet or new artfully designed PowerView Pebble™ Control. Program your perfect settings and let PowerView™ do the rest. With shades that adjust themselves automatically, PowerView allows you to customize your ideal combination of light, privacy and warmth, keeping your home perfectly in sync with the time of day and your schedule, while optimizing energy efficiency.
The Pebble Remote Control allows you to easily operate up to six different groupings of window treatments – either individually or together – with just a press of a button.
As PowerView is a proprietary radio frequency (RF) communication language, no line of sight is required to activate window treatments. The PowerView system can be operated via the free PowerView App or via two different types of controls: a Remote Control or a Scene Controller.
Window treatments can also be programmed to a “favorite” position. When activated with a single press, the treatments will go directly to that position.
The Pebble Scene Controller features an advanced display screen that lets you scroll and conveniently preview and select Scenes – different combinations of shades and shade positions – that have been programmed using the PowerView App. Two “Favorite” buttons allow you to select preferred Scenes.
Ergonomically designed and beautiful to look at, the PowerView Pebble is available in seven stylish colors and becomes a sleek accessory to any décor. You can also wall-mount a PowerView Remote or Scene Controller using the PowerView Surface, available in three on-trend colors.
PowerView™ App/Setting the Scene
The highly intuitive PowerView App, which communicates with the PowerView Hub connected to the home’s wireless router, unlocks the full potential of PowerView Motorization. Using the App on an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you can create Scenes, the different combinations of each shade in the room, adjusted to the exact position you want at different times of the day based on your light, privacy and overall room ambiance preferences.
You can choose from a variety of fun App color schemes and more than 100 activity icons to personalize each Scene and Room and create your own names for them that you can relate to, be it “Rise and Shine,” “Good Morning,” “Movie Night,” “Bedtime,” “Lights Out,” or whatever you may choose.
You can use the PowerView scheduling feature to set your Scenes to operate automatically – programming any Scene to activate on specific days and times and follow your schedule. You can even schedule multiple-room Scenes to activate simultaneously. You can also link your shades to the exact sunrise and sunset times precisely calculated by PowerView based on its knowledge of your specific location.
Remote Connect™ Feature
For additional convenience and home security, the RemoteConnect™ feature, along with an Internet connection, allows you to operate your window treatments from anywhere in the world using your mobile device.
Ideal for both newly constructed and existing homes, PowerView systems can be powered by batteries or a DC power supply plugged into a nearby outlet, so no hard wiring through walls or ceilings is required.
Easy Home Automation System Integration
The PowerView Hub allows easy integration with virtually any home automation system via an RS-232 serial connection or IP.
Along with the added convenience of cordless operation, PowerView motorization helps create a safer environment for children and pets.
With PowerView Motorization, the most beautiful window treatments are also the most intelligent.
