In this fourth video in the series, “Make Windows Happen,” we’ll review automation as a consideration when planning your window treatments. The convenience of scheduling your blinds and shades, and operating them by remote or smart device, is an often-overlooked feature. Each of the seven videos in this series will cover a key topic: proper mounting, evaluating your windows, child safety, automated systems, opacity, planning the entire room, and budgets.

Consideration 4: Automated Window Treatments

Motorized automation not only adds a level of ease in using your window treatments, it also enhances safety for those with children by not having a cord visibly hanging near it. Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization® is a winner of the prestigious 2018 Red Dot Design Award and described by the judges as radiating “quality and sophistication.” It allows users to control and schedule the function of the shades and blinds using either a remote control; a mobile device, like your smartphone or tablet; or even your own voice with a device from Amazon. Once programmed, the window treatments will automatically adjust to create just the right ambiance at any time of day. Learn more from JC Licht window treatment expert Ron Bryza in the video below.

The old school thinking that you can’t wear white after Labor Day is as silly as believing you can’t drink coffee on days that end in Y. And we simply don’t want to live in a world where either is true.
