Hunter Douglas revolutionizes window coverings with PowerView Motorization
Toronto, Canada – May 16, 2017 – Smart home technology allows homeowners to control lights, lock doors, adjust the thermostat and monitor the house all from a cell phone or tablet. Now, Hunter Douglas has taken smart technology a step further with intelligent window shades.
“Our PowerView Motorization technology allows you to digitally program Hunter Douglas window coverings so that they automatically raise, lower, tilt and traverse exactly when and how you want them, even if you are away from home,” says Sue Rainville, Director of Marketing at Hunter Douglas.

PowerView Motorization creates the perfect ambiance in any room, morning, noon and night. Coupled with the many advantages of Hunter Douglas window coverings including their ability to help insulate rooms against the heat of the sun, protecting furniture and flooring from UV damage, and even improving the acoustics in a room, homeowners can enjoy all these benefits and more without even lifting a finger.
The recipient of the 2016 Red Dot Design Award, the most coveted and prestigious designation in the world of design, PowerView Motorization is streamlined and simple to use with the intuitive PowerView app available for smartphone or tablet, or by using one of the PowerView Pebble® Controls.
“These are shades that operate on your schedule. You don’t need to go around the house opening, closing or adjusting shades in coordination with the position of the sun. Instead, program how you want each shade in each room to be positioned at different times of the day based on your light, privacy and room ambiance preferences,” says Ms. Rainville.
The benefits of PowerView Motorization extend beyond the convenience of light and privacy options to impact the home’s environmental impact and household costs. With up to 50 percent of a home’s energy being lost through windows, coupling the energy efficiency of Hunter Douglas window treatments with PowerView Technology can multiply the potential for savings by syncing movements with daylight schedules.
Most PowerView Motorized window treatments are battery-powered, making them simple to install, operate and maintain. Battery packs are hidden behind the headrail so as not to interfere with the beauty of the window treatments.
“The cordless operation not only adds convenience, it also creates a safer environment for homes with young children and pets,” adds Ms. Rainville.
