Benefits of Motorized Shades for Homes

Customizing new shades with Hunter Douglas is fun for a wide variety of reasons. From exclusive fabrics to exciting light-filtering designs, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. But one way to make your shades even better for any room in your home is to add PowerView® Automation. By adding motorized shades to your home, you can enjoy the best combination of practicality and style.

PowerView® Automation

So, what exactly is PowerView® Automation? This simple operating system is filled with exciting features to improve your home and make your window treatments more stylish. The system integrates compact, battery-powered motors into your shades to enable electronic operation. It also allows you to connect your motorized shades to either a remote control device or your mobile device using the PowerView® app.

The response time is instantaneous and the motors work without loud noises, keeping your home feeling calm.

Skylight Shades

One of the most notable benefits of having motorized shades is that you won’t need to worry about having to reach your window treatments by hand. You can operate them from across the room, or even from across the world. So, if you want to add Duette® Honeycomb Shades to your skylights with the SkyLift™ system, PowerView® Automation will make it far simpler to adjust your shades. All you’ll have to do is tap your phone or say a voice command and you can open and close your skylight shades in seconds.


Customizing cozy bedroom shades is fun and simple when you explore shades from Hunter Douglas. One great style to explore is Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which feature a soft and sleek design, creating a calming environment in your bedroom. And the available Duolite® system provides an effective room-darkening shade to make it easier to fall asleep.

To make your evenings more relaxing and your mornings brighter, you can go into the PowerView® app and customize your scene settings schedule so your motorized shades close at your bedtime and open when you wake up.

This feature can be applied to any window, including your skylights, which will make it easy to optimize your shades for energy savings.

Style and Safety

By upgrading to advanced motorized shades with an electronic operating system, you can wave goodbye to traditional cords found on other shades. This means that all that’s left with your shades is what’s necessary without any cord system cluttering up your shades. As a result, each room will look cleaner and more modern than ever.

Not having hanging cords also improves safety for young kids and small pets. Overall, installing motorized shades will make your home feel calmer while giving you more reasons to have peace of mind.
