Types of Motorized Blinds and Motorized Shades

At The Shade Shop, converting your window treatments to motorized blinds and motorized shades is easy! We proudly offer Hunter Douglas products that can be motorized to increase the convenience and ease of your life. There are three main types of motorized blinds and shades from Hunter Douglas available, including:

  • Hard-Wired Motorized Blinds and Shades are created for precision control using the Platinum™ wall switch, the Platinum™ remote or another home automation system. Thus, this operating system can be operated from anywhere in the room for more accessible and more convenient window treatment operation. This cordless operating system also increases the safety and appearance of your window treatments because there are no long cords that could be dangerous to children or that could hinder the view of your blinds or shades. The Hard-Wired Motorized Blinds and Shades work best with honeycomb shades, roman shades, sheers, shadings, rollers shades or woven wood shades from Hunter Douglas.
  • The PowerTilt™ with Platinum™ Technology operating system can be used with horizontal Hunter Douglas blinds and shades to automatically operate the slats. Using a battery powered system and Platinum™ Technology remote, you can easily rotate, open or close the slats of your horizontal blinds and shades. With the press of a button, you can increase or decrease the amount of sunlight entering your home or adjust your level of privacy. The PowerTilt™ with Platinum™ Technology operating system works with horizontal window treatments from Hunter Douglas, including Celebrity®, Décor®, EverWood®, Lightlines®, Macro, Natural Elements™, Parkland®, and Reveal® blinds and shades.
  • The PowerView® Motorization operating system is a complete automatic window treatment operating system from Hunter Douglas that can operate blinds and shades through the Pebble Remote Control, Pebble Scene Controller or the PowerView® smartphone application. This unique motorized operating system is capable of opening and closing your window treatments, as well as creating room scenes that can control your window treatments on a pre-set schedule. The room scene feature gives you more flexibility because your blinds and shades will open or close even if you are not home! The PowerView® Motorization operating system is compatible with honeycomb shades, horizontal blinds, roller shades, window screens, shadings, sheers, vertical blinds, or woven woods from Hunter Douglas.

All three of these window treatment operating systems give you more convenience and accessibility options than standard window treatments. Using either the Platinum™ wall switch or remote or the Pebble remote control, scene controller, or smartphone application, you can easily control your window treatments from the comfort of your couch. With the smartphone application, you can take it one step further and control your window treatments from anywhere in the world. This gives you the ability to operate window treatments on tall windows, skylights, or other difficult to reach windows. Upgrading your window treatments to the Hard-Wired window treatments, to the PowerTilt™ operated window treatments, or to the PowerView® Motorization window treatments is a no-brainer with these benefits!
