Motorized Shades


PowerView® Automation moves your beautiful shades to your schedule. It’s your home and your light to control.

Easy, Accurate Shade Control

Your PowerView shades will always be exactly where you want them, when you want them, thanks to Bluetooth technology, which features real-time, two-way communication between your shades and the PowerView system.

  • Added Convenience—easily control shades with a button press, tap on your mobile device, automatically, or even with your voice.
  • Increased Privacy—schedule shades to automatically close whenever you want.
  • Better Energy Efficiency—schedule shades to raise and lower to keep interiors warmer or cooler, depending on the season.
  • Enhanced Security—give your home a lived-in look while you’re away by scheduling shades to automatically raise and lower at set times.
  • Safer for Children—because smart shades lack lift cords, they’re a safer option than shades with exposed cords.

Motorized Shades for Smart Home Living

One of the benefits of shades motorized with PowerView Automation is the PowerView App. You can use it to set up schedules for your shades, so that shades automatically open and close exactly when you want them to, for everyday convenience.

Here’s a look at just some of the ways PowerView schedules can work for you:

  • Swap your alarm for a gentle wake-up by scheduling bedroom shades to open.
  • Schedule kitchen shades to open while you’re enjoying breakfast.
  • Schedule all shades throughout your house to close in the evening.
  • Enhance security by scheduling shades to move at set times, giving your home a lived-in look while you’re away.
  • In summer or warmer climates, schedule shades to close during the day to keep your house cooler.

Yes, schedules created through the PowerView App automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time.

A scene is a predetermined shade level that you create in the app, for any given room or rooms. For example, you could create a “Movie Time” scene that would close all the shades in your living room or a “Good Morning” scene that would partially raise your kitchen and dining room shades. You can also create a schedule for a scene, so that it occurs at a set time/day(s) of the week.

Motorized shades are powered in a variety of ways, such as with batteries or plug-in power supplies. If you’re building a new house, hard-wired motorized shades are also an option.
