We are living in a world on the edge of creating an internet of things, and because of this, a lot of the great inventions and innovations of late have been smart technologies. Hunter Douglas’s Powerview motorized window coverings are some of the best smart technologies we’ve seen in the window covering industry. Their smart system actually works to automatically adjust your blinds throughout the day to meet your preferences. Whether you’re in the other room or on the other side of the world, as long as you have an internet connection, you’ll be able to control your window coverings.
Create Personalized Scenes. The first step in embracing this new technology is downloading the Powerview app onto the smart device of your preference. The app allows you to select your window coverings in different rooms and for different times of the day. You can then program each covering to balance your lighting and privacy needs. Perhaps one scene will have the living room’s window coverings open for early morning reading and another will close all of the bedroom coverings during the afternoon’s nap time.
Schedule. Once your scenes are created, it’s time to schedule them. The scheduling feature allows your window coverings to move from one scene into the next independently. Scene changes can be triggered by the hour, the day of the week, or even sunrise and sunset. The scheduler is easy to use and gives you complete control over your window coverings — even if you need different scenes to happen in different rooms simultaneously.
Remote Access. The remote access is one of our favourite features. From work or across Canada, remote access means not having to worry. If you left the blinds open before going on vacation, simply connect to the wifi at your hotel and close your window coverings using the Powerview App. If you have a chronic over-sleeping teen at home, you can remotely open up his or her window coverings from work to make sure they get up in time to mow the lawn or get to their weekend job!
At Normandeau, we love the power that this new smart technology is putting back into the hands of homeowners. We think it’s wonderful how this technology will seamlessly move between scenes throughout the day creating the perfect combination of light and privacy. Calgarians with Powerview will never have to worry about whether their plants are going to die because they left all their window coverings closed — they’ll just open them remotely. New technologies are always exciting and fun, and we can’t wait to see how Powerview Motorized window coverings change our lives.
