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.
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.
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.
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.
The RemoteConnect™ feature, along with an internet connection, allows you to operate your shades from anywhere in the world, using your smartphone or tablet.
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!
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
Went over to a friend’s the other night, and was delighted to see how well these Maxxmar Shutters look a year after installation.
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.
Does the vinyl product off-gas or have an odour? Maxxmar Shutters meet regulations regarding formaldehyde and VOC emmissions and are certified under the Greenguard program. Personally I don’t notice any off gassing from this product, but recognize that individual’s levels of sensitivity vary widely. If you are a sufferer of environmental sensitivities we have solutions for your window treatment needs.
What materials are available? We have shutters in Wood and Polysilk exterior grade vinyl.
Can you make an operable shutter for my arch or shaped windows? Yes, absolutely we can, we have solutions for all kinds of shapes including Arched, Eyebrow, Octagon, Angled or Circular windows.
Are shutters a good product in regards to child safety? Yes, with no cords and restricted openings shutters are an ideal solution to maintain child safety.
