Automated Window Blinds: Here’s Everything You Should Know

Living in a modern world full of smart devices, almost everything in our home can be automated. Lights, locks, thermostats, and doorbells can be controlled via a mobile device—and window treatments can work the same way!

The Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization collection allows your home to have a classic style while also being equipped with modern technology. Here’s everything you should know about automated window blinds.

How Do Automated Window Blinds Work?

Automated blinds are powered by a motor that lives in the top of the blind, where they are installed to a window. The battery-powered motors work to softly lift, lower, or slant the blinds. They can be controlled by a remote or mobile app. The remote is recommended for effortless control of one to four blinds while the app provides intuitive automation for five and even more than twenty blinds. Remotes come in several colors to match the style of your room and there is also a wall mounted option to provide further ease.

Having a motorized shade is convenient for big windows and hard-to-reach windows. They’re also ideal for homeowners with limited mobility. Most of the batteries for motorized windows are rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry about keeping replacements around! Motorized blinds are also just as easy to order as any other window treatment. Just because they use smart technology, doesn’t mean they are complicated!
