Nest Thermostat

Your thermostat controls half your energy bill – more than appliances, more than electronics. So shouldn’t it help you save energy? The Nest Learning Thermostat does. It learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved over 8 billion kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide.*And independent studies showed that it saved people an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.

Hunter Douglas PowerView™ motorized shades are a revolutionary new system that automatically moves your shades throughout the day, so you don’t have to. Just program PowerView scenes to move your window treatments to the exact position you want and then control and schedule them using the intuitive PowerView App on your smartphone or tablet. You can also operate your PowerView shades using the stunning PowerView Pebble™ Control.
PowerView helps maintain interior temperatures, minimize your home’s energy consumption and reduce utility costs by closing your shades to create a thermal barrier at the windows during Rush Hour Events. Nest can also trigger the PowerView App to close your shades to help keep your home comfortable and secure when it senses that you are away from home.

NEST CAMERA (also free with purchase)

Is everything OK at home? What if someone breaks in? What’s the dog getting into?
The Nest Cam Indoor security camera is designed to help you look after your home and family – even when you’re away.

With 24/7 live streaming, a versatile magnetic stand, person alerts with Nest Aware and one app for all your Nest products, Nest Cam Indoor helps you keep an eye on what matters. From anywhere.

HunterDouglas PowerView Motorization

Here is an installation we did recently of Hunter Douglas Roller Shades motorized with the HunterDouglas PowerView System, utilizing an Android Mobile App and Powerview Hub to control the shades.

HUNTERDOUGLAS POWERVIEW

Installing the PowerView Mobile App means your shades will be controlled with the swipe of a finger. Scene Settings add functionality, programming shades with automated commands. Your blinds can be programmed to follow the changing seasons and react to sunset and sunrise times automatically.

HunterDouglas PowerView App

HunterDouglas PowerView on iOS

On this installation we utilized the Hunter Douglas product line, primarily for the choice of “Urban Loft” fabric that the customer loved. We’d have to agree that for this application the choice was stunning.

HunterDouglas Powerview Remotes

Powerview Pebble Remotes

The PowerView system can be operated via the PowerView App or via two different types of Pebble controls—a Pebble Remote Control or a Pebble Scene Controller.

The PowerView Pebble Remote Control offers a modern alternative to a traditional remote control, allowing you to pre-set and easily operate up to six different groupings of window treatments—either individually or together—with just a press of a button.

The PowerView Pebble Scene Controller features an advanced display screen that lets you conveniently preview and select room scenes—different combinations of shades and shade positions—that you previously programmed using the PowerView App.

Ergonomically designed and beautiful to look at, the PowerView Pebble is available in seven stylish colors to enhance any décor.

You can also wall mount a PowerView Remote or Scene Controller using the PowerView Surface, available in three on-trend colors.

CONNECT FROM OUTSIDE THE HOME

The RemoteConnect™ feature, along with an internet connection, allows you to operate your shades from anywhere in the world, using your smartphone or tablet.

BENEFITS OF MOTORIZED SYSTEMS

Imagine the convenience of setting up your system, and then not having to worry about manually adjusting your shades at all. Imagine being able to adjust your shades from the office? Or from the hotel? All the daily work of adjusting for time of day, or activities taking place in the room is taken care of.

Clients with health challenges or impairments are provided more accessibility in controlling their window coverings through the use of motorization and automation controls.

Motorized treatments eliminate the control cords on standard treatments that pose a serious risk for children. They ensure child safety adding the element of peace of mind.

And let’s not forget the cool factor, it’s pretty amazing to see these shades operate!

OPTIONS?

We also have similar functionality from some of our other manufacturers, including Maxxmar and Altex. We have options that include nearly silent motors, and hard-wired systems that never require a battery change! Working with leading edge companies like Somfy and NeoSmart blind control systems there are a world of options to meet the needs or your project.

The future is here, and it’s more affordable than you think! Call us today for more details and your own Shop@Home visit. 613-706-1250

 

 

Maxxmar Shutters

Went over to a friend’s the other night, and was delighted to see how well these Maxxmar Shutters look a year after installation.

Maxxmar Shutters

Robin’s Living Room Shutters

When the treatment was installed we were looking for an elegant solution, one that would compliment their treasures collected from postings around the world. Functionally the shutter works well, as the window faces the street side of the house. With the minimal divider rail of the Maxxmar Shutters we are able to get light into the room by opening the top louvers. With the top louvers open we can maintain privacy with the bottom louvers. The center rail is a consistent 2 ” in all heights of Maxxmar shutters, it’s a great feature of this product line. Can you pick it out in the picture? The material is Maxxmar’s exclusive PolySilk compound in the Summerview line. It  is showing no signs of age or yellowing despite being fully exposed to heavy sunlight for much of the day. This isn’t a surprise of course because the shutters are warrantied against such defects for 25 years. Shutters were a great choice for this window because they also help to insulate the rooms from the heavy UV exposure, have protected the hardwood floors and textiles in the room while cutting down traffic noise from the street.
