Motorized blinds are gaining momentum in the area of new builds. Technology is changing with such speed that it’s no surprise that high end homes are automating almost everything electrical. With the push of a button they go up and down as you walk away. Better yet, they can open and close through special programming or have a sun sensor tell them when to move. The possibilities are endless if the budget allows for it.
This July 2015 Hunter Douglas launched an all new motorization system and the best part is it won’t need an electrician to give you some great options for motorized blinds. The new Powerview motorization system can be programmed into a tablet or phone so that they can be operated while away on holidays. This new technology doesnt need to be wired into the home by an electrician so the cost is significantly less than a home automation system that can take months to install. If motorized blinds were an after thought when the house was already built then this is a great way to power your blinds as they’re battery operated. Alternately, Hunter Douglas has the ability to integrate their blinds with any home automation system. This means that specialty blinds such as Pirouettes® and Silhouettes® can be used instead of just roller-shades, which are generally all that’s offered through the large automation companies. The best part is that it usually costs less to go with motorized Hunter Douglas options in comparison to other alternatives. The options are endless and the technology has just gotten better!
