POWERVIEW® MOTORIZATION

Beautiful Shades Moving To Your Schedule

Imagine a world where your window treatments adjust themselves automatically, creating the perfect room ambiance morning, noon and night. That’s the beauty of PowerView® Motorization—recipient of the 2018 Red Dot Design Award, the most coveted and prestigious designation in the world of design.

Just program PowerView to move your window treatments to the exact position you want and then control and schedule them using the intuitive PowerView App. You can also operate your PowerView settings using the PowerView Pebble® Control, or with voice commands using devices from Amazon.

Get the PowerView App

The PowerView App unlocks the full potential of PowerView Motorization. Using the App, you can control your shades with a swipe of a finger. Or, create customized Scenes that move the shades to positions you set, and automate those Scenes to operate on their own throughout the day.

SHADES THAT OPERATE ON YOUR SCHEDULE

Use the Automations feature to set your Scenes to operate independently, whether you are at home or away. You can even schedule Scenes to operate with the sunrise or sunset based on your location.

 

USE THE PEBBLE CONTROL

The PowerView system can be operated via the PowerView App or Pebble Control.

The Pebble Remote Control offers a modern alternative to a traditional remote control, allowing you to preset and easily operate up to six different groupings of window treatments—individually or together—with just a press of a button. Ergonomically designed and beautiful to look at, the Pebble is available in ten stylish colors to enhance any décor. The Pebble Scene Controller allows you to trigger your pre-programmed scenes on demand. Both are also available as Surface Controls that can be affixed to a wall.

POWERVIEW HUB

Our elegantly designed Hub connects wirelessly to your WiFi network. It’s the central point of control for all your home’s PowerView window treatments, storing your settings and activating your Scenes.

EXTEND YOUR SIGNAL

The PowerView Repeater extends the signal range of the Hub to carry commands throughout your home. Added bonus: its soft glow provides customized illumination when plugged into any outlet.

RED DOT DESIGN AWARD WINNER 2018

Good design comes with a seal of approval—the Red Dot Product Design Award. It’s a highly desirable industry award, and both our PowerView® Hub and Repeater earned it in 2018.

CONNECT FROM OUTSIDE THE HOME

The Remote Connect feature allows you to operate your shades from anywhere in the world using your mobile device.

DESIGNED WITH SAFETY IN MIND

Along with the added convenience of cordless operation, PowerView Motorization creates a safer environment for homes with young children and pets.

BATTERY POWER MAKES IT EASY

Most PowerView motorized window treatments are battery-powered, so they’re incredibly easy to install, operate and maintain. The battery pack is hidden behind the headrail so there’s nothing to mar the beauty of your window treatments.

COMPATIBLE SYSTEMS

PowerView also seamlessly integrates with other sophisticated whole-home automation systems.

GENERAL

What is a PowerView Shade Network?

The PowerView Shade Network is a unique radio frequency ID that allows PowerView Motorization devices to communicate with each other within a home. All PowerView Devices in a home should be added to the same PowerView Shade Network. This allows for easy installation of additional control options, such as the PowerView Hub, PowerView Repeaters and PowerView Scene Controllers. Additionally, Remotes joined to the same PowerView Shade Network will be able to operate all window coverings in the PowerView Shade Network as desired.

What is a PowerView Hub?

The PowerView Hub enables use of the PowerView App. The PowerView Hub connects to a Wi-Fi router, and communicates with Hunter Douglas window coverings that feature PowerView Motorization. It stores user-defined data, such as Scene and Automation information, and provides control of window coverings from anywhere in the world using the RemoteConnect™ feature.

What is a PowerView Repeater?

The PowerView Repeater works alongside the PowerView Remotes, Scene Controllers, and the PowerView Hub to expand coverage of your PowerView Shade Network within the home.

What is the PowerView Pebble Scene Controller?

The PowerView Pebble Scene Controller works in conjunction with the PowerView Hub to quickly navigate and activate your personalized list of Scenes.

How long can I expect the batteries to last on my battery-powered motorized window coverings?

Battery life for PowerView motorized window treatments using the AA battery wand exceeds one year, depending on shade size, configuration and usage. Rechargeable batteries are not recommended. Hunter Douglas recommends alkaline batteries for all products with the exception of Duette® and Applause®honeycomb shades with SkyLift™, for which we recommend Lithium batteries.

Do I need to run wires?

No wiring is necessary for products with PowerView motorization. Hunter Douglas offers a variety of power options including battery and plug-in power supplies to fit any application. Hunter Douglas also provides hard-wired motorized shades for various applications.

Do Hunter Douglas motorized shades have built-in Wi-Fi?

All shades communicate via our proprietary wireless PowerView protocol.

What is the range of the radio frequency signal using PowerView Motorization devices?

Ranges of radio frequency (RF) signals in a home vary based on construction and conditions in the home (electronic devices, plumbing, electrical runs, etc.). Similar radio components are used for the PowerView Remote, PowerView Hub and PowerView Scene Controllers. PowerView Repeaters are available to extend the range when needed.

POWERVIEW PEBBLE® REMOTE

What does the Favorite button on the PowerView remote do?

A “favorite” position can be created and set for every motorized shade in the home. The Favorite button is a quick and easy way to send shades to their specific position(s) from a single button press.

Can I use my new PowerView Pebble remote to operate my PowerRise® 2.1 shades that I had previously purchased?

The new PowerView components use a different communication method from previous Platinum™ Technology platform and cannot be used to control older shading products.

How many shades can I control using the PowerView Pebble remote or PowerView Surface remote?

A PowerView remote can be used to operate numerous shades in groups, as long as the window coverings can receive commands from the remote, or 6 window coverings individually.

How far away can I be when operating my wirelessly controlled motorized window treatments from my PowerView remote?

Operational distances will vary based on the construction of the home. Large open areas promote greater operational distances. Hunter Douglas recommends 1 remote per room with motorized window treatments.

Can I use a 3rd party remote to operate my Hunter Douglas shades with PowerView Motorization?

Third-party ‘universal’ remotes cannot be used to directly control Hunter Douglas PowerView motorized window treatments.

How can I preserve the life of the coin cell lithium batteries in my PowerView Pebble Remote?

Consider keeping the remote in a location where it will not be moved inadvertently. Alternatively, disable the auto-wake function by pressing and holding the group 6 button on the remote for approximately six seconds. The group numbers (1-6) will blink once to indicate that the auto-wake function has been disabled. To re-enable the auto-wake function, press and hold the group 6 button on the remote for approximately six seconds.

POWERVIEW APP

How much does the PowerView App cost?

The PowerView App by Hunter Douglas is a free download. However, in order for the App to be able to operate shades, a PowerView Hub must be purchased.

What mobile platforms and devices are compatible with the PowerView App?

The PowerView App is available for Apple® iOS (running version 10.0 and newer) and Android™ mobile devices (running version 4.4, KitKat, and newer).

Are there monthly service fees associated with the PowerView App?

Hunter Douglas does not charge any additional fees for PowerView App updates or for the use of RemoteConnect™. For features that use your mobile wireless network, check with your carrier for data rate charges that may apply.

Do I need an internet connection to set up the PowerView App to control my shades?

No, an Internet connection is not necessary. However, for new PowerView Hub installations, it is required that the Hub be connected to a router with Internet access in order for the Hub to download the latest firmware update from the Hunter Douglas PowerView server. An Internet connection to the router is also necessary for the RemoteConnect feature and for keeping the time, date and your Hub firmware up to date.

How many shades can I control using the PowerView App?

You can control all Hunter Douglas PowerView motorized window treatments in a home from the PowerView App.

Can I operate my shades from outside of my home anywhere in the world using the PowerView App on my Apple® or Android™ device?

Yes, adjust your window coverings featuring PowerView Motorization to preset Scenes when you’re away via the RemoteConnect™ feature. RemoteConnect must be enabled in your PowerView Hub and accessed from a PowerView account. Additionally, your PowerView Hub must be connected to your home’s Internet network.

What is a Scene?

A Scene is a combination of pre-programmed window covering positions in any given room, adjusted to the exact position that you want. Scenes can be created and operated by the PowerView App to meet different light and privacy needs throughout the day. Just activate the Scene with a touch and the window coverings move to their perfect pre-set positions. Even better, set your Scenes to automatically follow your daily activities using the Automations feature of the PowerView App.

What is a Multiple-Room Scene?

Multiple-Room Scenes are collections of Scenes from separate Rooms that allow you to activate Scenes around your home at the same time.

Will Automations work even if my mobile device is not at home?

Yes, Automations will continue to operate window coverings to pre-set Scenes at the programmed time(s) of day even if the mobile device is not in the home. All Automation settings are stored in the PowerView Hub.

Do Automations automatically change for Daylight Savings Time?

Automations will adjust for Daylight Savings Time automatically after you connect to the PowerView Hub using the PowerView App. The internal clock in the PowerView Hub will update to the current date and time. If the PowerView Hub is connected to the internet, Daylight Savings Time will be automatically updated.

What is RemoteConnect™?

RemoteConnect is a feature within the PowerView App that allows users to activate Scenes while outside the home, anywhere internet connectivity is possible.

Can I control my window coverings with PowerView Motorization from my home automation system?

RemoteConnect is a feature within the PowerView App that allows users to activate Scenes while outside the home, anywhere internet connectivity is possible.

Can each PowerView user within a home have their own Dashboard configuration?

Dashboard information is stored on a user’s mobile device. Each distinct mobile device that interacts with the PowerView App within a home can have their own Dashboard configuration.

TROUBLESHOOTING

Why are my PowerView shades operating slowly?

The batteries in your shades may need to be replaced. See our Battery Life indicator information and how-to video.

Why are my PowerView shades stopping in the wrong position?

Press and hold the manual button on the headrail for 6 seconds to calibrate the shade limit.

How do I set the bottom limit for PowerView Designer Screen and Roller Shades?

Our PowerView Step-by-Step Guide has the answer! Click here for Setting Limits: Designer Screen Shades Only.

Why are my shades not responding in the PowerView App?

Are you on the same network as the shades? If so, please raise the shades with the remote, and then stand next to the hub with the remote and see if you can close the shades. If this does not work then you have a signal issue and we would suggest relocating any repeaters you have.
