Window Treatments Move To Your Schedule

The best part about PowerView® Automation is how you can schedule your window treatments to move on your schedule. If you want them to open and close along with the sunrise and sunset, simply program that into your system and you will never have to worry about your shades opening and closing again. This is extremely convenient and helps your natural sleep schedule as the natural light enters your home in the morning and as your rooms are completely dark at night. You can also schedule them to move at certain times of the day, which makes window treatments one less thing you must worry about during your busy days. Gone on a vacation? These settings will continue to change your window position even if you’re out of town! Don’t let folks who may be watching your home notice anything is amiss with these motorized shades.

Control Options

There is not only one way to control your window treatments. There are many ways that you can move your treatments. One of the most popular ways is with our PowerView® App. The power of this is that regardless of where you are in the world, you can move your shades. If you forgot to close them before a big trip, just open the App and do it all from the car. This allows peace of mind that your window treatments won’t be left open for long periods of time when you don’t want them to be. Plus, you can control them with a remote and with a wall mount as well. The possibilities are endless. You can finally control your shades the way you want.


What a lot of people don’t realize is that you can integrate this system in with your whole-home automation systems. Whether you have Amazon, Apple, Google, IFTTT, Logitech, Loxone, or many other smart home systems, you can seamlessly integrate your motorized shades to make it a sophisticated whole-home automation system. Plus, this system is designed with safety in mind as it is a cordless option that creates a safer environment for young children and pets.
