Why Motorized Window Treatments will be Trending in 2017

motorized window treatments

Motorized window treatments may soon become a common feature of many homes in 2017.

In 2015, they won Best of Year for Interior Design. In 2016 they won the coveted Red Dot Design Award. With their soaring popularity, Hunter Douglas PowerView motorized window treatments are sure to be the biggest window treatment trend in 2017.

Moving Towards Simplicity

More than ever, homeowners are interested in products that simplify their hectic everyday schedules. That’s why Hunter Douglas PowerView motorized window treatments have gained such huge popularity. With the intuitive PowerView app on your tablet or smartphone, or the standalone PowerView Pebble Control, you can program your window shadings to position themselves throughout the day. Simply adjust your window treatments in the desired position, then program what times you would like your shades to be in that position. Your window treatments adjust themselves throughout the day to block the glare of the sun and let in natural light when appropriate. That’s one less thing to think about, which is a big help for today’s busy homeowners.

Imagine all of the real life benefits of having programmable window treatments. You can set your window shades to rise at 7am, which is a much gentler way to wake up than listening to a blaring alarm. During the time of day that the sun glares through your kitchen windows, your window treatments can automatically lower to counter the glare for you. When you’re away on vacation, you can keep your shades on their programmed schedule so that it will appear that you are still at home. There are so many ways that your life can be improved with innovative motorized window treatments!

Features and Benefits

The PowerView system is controlled through either the PowerView app or through two different types of PowerView Pebble Controls. You can decide to use whatever method works best for you.

On your smartphone or tablet, you can use the PowerView app to create and schedule customized room schemes. This really allows you to unlock the full potential of your motorized window treatments and get creative with your window schemes. You can create schemes that incorporate all of the shades throughout your entire home, adjusting them automatically during different times of day. You can even access your PowerView system from outside the home; anywhere in the world, in fact! As long as you have an Internet connection, you can use the app to change your window treatment scene from anywhere.

If you’re not much of an app user, you can use the PowerView Pebble Control instead! The PowerView Pebble Remote Control is a modern, ergonomic alternative to the traditional remote control. You can easily pre-set up to six groupings of window treatments.

The PowerView Pebble Scene Controller allows you to preview and select room scenes with an advanced display screen. These are scenes that you’ve previously programmed through the PowerView app. This combination makes adjusting your window treatments easy as pie!
