What is PowerView Motorization
Modern Precious Metals® PowerView® Motorization Pebble®
Imagine a home where your window treatments automatically adjust to create the perfect room ambiance, temperature, and level of privacy…all without ever having to lift a finger. That’s the power of PowerView Motorization.
Awarded the industry’s most prestigious design designation, PowerView Motorization integrates with hundreds of Hunter Douglas window treatments and gives your home a higher level of intelligence.
This system integrates with various apps and controls, allowing you to automatically change the position of your coverings, including:
You can do all this through a digitally-programmed schedule, remotely, or based on pre-set factors. You can move your window treatments to exactly the position you want, even when you’re away from home.
Exploring the benefits of PowerView Motorization
Adding PowerView Motorization is an attractive benefit to homeowners for many reasons. Not only does it make your window treatments simple to handle — it makes your day-to-day life easier, safer, and more cost effective.
Ease & convenience
Smart home technology has found its way into many homes throughout Portland — whether it’s something simple like a speaker or home hub, or a smart home device that helps you manage home security, lights, or smoke detectors.
Failing to include an important part of your home — your window coverings — in your collection of smart-home technology is simply unnecessary. And if you’re used to relying on smart home systems, not including your windows can become a huge inconvenience.
Today, homeowners expect and rely on these types of systems to make life easier. You have enough on your plate to worry about whether or not you remembered to close the blinds every time you leave home.
The ability to set schedules or use a remote to open and close your shades, blinds, or curtains at specific times or from a distance means this will never be a concern again.
Additionally, remote-activate systems are incredibly helpful for hard-to-reach windows. PowerView Motorization allows you to have a covering for your skylight or other high-up window and still have the ability to open and close the opening as needed.
Additionally, the majority of PowerView Motorization coverings are battery powered. You don’t have to deal with running wires and cords, finding ways to keep them hidden, or making sure you have a power source nearby to plug them in. This system is focused on your ease and convenience at every step.

Connecting your window coverings to a smart home hub can save you energy costs. You can configure your system to react independently to temperature readings in your home, closing or opening the covering to help reduce energy use.
For example, your coverings can be automated to close during the hottest part of the day to avoid higher HVAC usage or open on cold but sunny days to help warm your room, naturally.
Smart lighting & perfect ambiance
In the same vein as energy efficiency is the ability to let the smart home system help you create the perfect lighting and ambiance in your home.
Particularly when paired with a smart lighting system, your PowerView Motorization can maximize the amount of daylight allowed in your home. For example, closing the blinds can trigger smart lighting to turn on, and vice versa.
We’ve discussed how PowerView Motorization can help protect the privacy in your home — helping keep your home safe when you’re away or during the night. Another safety feature this system allows is through its cordless operation.
Cords on window treatments can be hazardous, with the chance that children or pets might get curious and become tangled in its web. This smart-home integrated system helps create an even safer environment for everyone in your family.
PowerView & Control 4: The ultimate luxury home duo
As we mentioned, PowerView Motorization integrates with various smart home systems — from Amazon Echo to Google Home and the most recent integration, Apple Home Kit.
This system also integrates with Control4.
Control4 is one of the most in-demand home automation systems on the market. This system connects with nearly every area of your home, allowing you total control, including:
- Pool and spa temperature/jets
- Lawn systems
- Doorbell intercom system
- And of course, window treatments
Control4 integrates with the Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization system and ensures a completely seamless experience. It gives you manual control or automated settings that work alongside the lights and thermostat and increase energy efficiency.
This is a huge benefit for many Portland homeowners — especially those who prefer a high-end home automation platform.
