Hunter Douglas Details CEDIA Expo Plans

Hunter Douglas is showcasing automated window treatment styles with its PowerView Motorization operating system. Hunter Douglas shades and blinds are customizable and bring a design-first approach, with the ability to suit virtually any shape or size window in any smart home, theater or control system.

Window treatments become a natural addition to smart home systems when automated, complementing lighting scenes, adding privacy to a security routine, creating ambiance for a home theater and more. Hunter Douglas window treatments are not one-size-fits-all: With over 20 styles that can be automated and customized to any installation, everything from the typical living room, to a home theater, to the extraordinary vaulted ceilings and large windows can become an opportunity for shading and blind integration. Hunter Douglas adds technology to its design legacy with PowerView, the technology platform that automates and integrates shade control into major smart home systems.

Homeowners can operate their automated Hunter Douglas shades and blinds with the PowerView App, the Pebble handheld or surface remote, a scene controller, voice command, or through a compatible automation system. PowerView can be integrated with most smart home and automation systems, such as Apple HomeKit, Control4, Crestron, Elan, IFTTT, Logitech Harmony Home, Universal Remote Control, RTI and Savant. They can also be operated with voice control using Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Siri or Google Assistant.

Hunter Douglas brings a selection of its most popular automated window treatments to CEDIA Expo, showcasing how its products can be programmed, scheduled and controlled easily by the homeowner or automatically as part of a system. Styles shown in the booth include Duette Honeycomb Shades, Pirouette window shadings, Vignette Duolite modern roman shades, Silhouette window shadings and more, each designed with unique light filtering and aesthetic. For example, the Vignette Duolite combines two fabrics into a single shade — one light filtering, the other room darkening –— using just a single motor and roller tube.
