The Benefits of Motorized Blinds

Motorized blinds are the latest in home automation technology, combining cutting edge technology with style to enhance your quality of life.

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.


You can open and close your window treatments from anywhere, home or away, with the simple push of a button. Most of us have a hard to reach window that’s especially inconvenient to open and close. That’s no longer an issue with motorized window treatments. You won’t even have to get out of your chair.


With motorized window treatments, you can preprogram your preferred settings depending on the time of day. If you have neighbors situated close by a window, you can program your shades or blinds to close at the same time every morning and evening for maximum privacy.


With motorized and automated window treatment systems, you can increase home security. Whether you are on vacation or at work, you can control your blinds and shades by programing settings based on the time of day or in real time using your smartphone. This gives the appearance that someone is home and possibly deterring would-be thieves, as well as making your home’s temperature more consistent and saving you money on your energy bill.


A major safety concern associated with standard window treatments is the cord. This is especially a concern for those households with small children and pets. Motorized window treatments don’t have a cord so the safety risk is greatly reduced.

Create the Right Ambiance

With automated window treatments, you can create just the right ambiance for a romantic candlelight dinner or set the perfect lighting for movie night. Hunter Douglas PowerView® premium operating systems are designed to complement the light control characteristics of all of their shadings, allowing the homeowner to create custom scenes to fit the mood and use of each space in the home, at any time of the day.

Eco Friendly

From an energy efficiency perspective, motorized window treatments are ideal. If you want to reduce home cooling costs, you can program the shades to close during the warmest hours of the day and the time of the day the most sun is shining in. If you are trying to keep your home warm during the winter, you can program your shades to open during the brightest times of the day. Many automation systems can even use data from temperature sensors to close blinds when a room gets too warm, and reopen them when once the room cools off.

Increase Home Resale Value

Upgraded home features that increase efficiency and functionality are always a great selling point and can increase your home’s value.
