Types Of Motorized Blinds and Motorized Shades

Motorized window treatments are the latest in home automation technology. Hunter Douglas offers several different style options and operating systems when it comes to motorized blinds and shades to fit your personal preferences and home decor needs. Hunter Douglas motorized window fashions can be seamlessly integrated with any home automation system.

PowerView® Motorization

PowerView® Motorization is the newest in convenience and home automation from Hunter Douglas. Offering both battery-operated and plug-in power options, PowerView® is the perfect solution for any home. No additional wiring is required. Batteries typically will provide power to a Hunter Douglas window covering for one year, depending on usage. To raise or lower individual window treatments or open, close and rotate vanes, simply send a command from one of the PowerView Pebble® Controls. Window treatments can be preset to open and close at scheduled times, providing ease and convenience.

Hard-Wired Motorized Blinds and Shades

For new homes or renovated homes, consider adding hard-wired motorized blinds and shades. These motorized Hunter Douglas window coverings are designed for guaranteed operation and precise control. Window coverings can be controlled via the elegant, contemporary-styled Platinum™ wall switch with optional Platinum™ remote or through any home automation system.

The Platinum™ wall switch fits standard Decora™ switch plates to blend with a room's décor. Two intermediate stop positions can be set at the wall switch to meet your need for privacy, while still allowing natural light into a room.

In addition to the Platinum™ wall switch, shades can also be controlled from a Platinum remote control. This is the same remote that is used with Hunter Douglas PowerRise®, PowerGlide®, and PowerTilt™ products. Using the Platinum remote, window coverings can be controlled individually or in groups.

Hunter Douglas window treatments available with the hard-wired motorized feature include Duette® Honeycomb shades, Silhouette® window shadings, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades , all Hunter Douglas screen and roller shades, as well as Provenance® Woven Wood Shades.


For greater control and the added ease for tilting blinds, the PowerTilt™ with Platinum Technology™ is a great option.

The PowerTilt™ battery-powered system easily tilts slats open or closed. No additional wiring is required. Alkaline or lithium batteries typically will provide power to a Hunter Douglas window covering for over one year, depending on usage. Rechargeable batteries are not recommended.

Simply point the remote at the satellite eye and press the UP or DOWN button to tilt the slats.

Our motorized operating systems for window shades and blinds are designed with the most innovative, award-winning technology in the industry. Motorization allows you to easily and effortlessly operate your window treatments and is ideal for increased child and pet safety.

Motorized Vertical Blinds

Hunter Douglas also offers a simple solution for vertical blinds. This advanced motorized system allows for effortless operation of vertical blinds, both for tilting vertical blind slats and for traversing the length of the window with the touch of a button using a remote specifically dedicated to your vertical blinds.
