PEARL RIVER, NY (March 6, 2019)—Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of custom window treatments, announced today that its innovative wireless operating system, PowerView® Automation, is now compatible with Apple® HomeKit™ enabling more personalized and convenient living. This intelligent system now allows users to control most Hunter Douglas window treatments with a simple tap in the Apple Home app, by asking Siri, or even automatically using iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac or HomePod.
The Hunter Douglas motorized system also enables users to program their window treatments to operate on their own throughout the day. The PowerView® App is used to create Scenes with pre-programmed shade positions, such as raising to greet the dawn, readjusting to deflect the hot afternoon sun, or closing at night to create a private retreat. The Scenes can be programmed to personalized settings such as “movie time” or “good morning” which can be activated by asking Siri on Apple devices, as well as on the PowerView App, and will automatically bring the window treatments to the desired height.
Adding HomeKit compatibility to PowerView Automation, allows homeowners to create their own smart environment that works with their lifestyle and gives them the power to control their home’s privacy, light and heat in the easiest way possible. PowerView Motorization is also compatible with other popular smart home systems such as Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant, Control4®, Savant and Nest®.
