The New Year is about more than just pulling out your new calendar and packing away your holiday decorations; it’s also a great time to start something new and revitalize your life. Whether you are undertaking a New Year’s resolution or are simply taking stock of your life this coming January, we think that the New Year is a great time to bring the innovation of Hunter Douglas PowerView into your home. Don’t believe us? Keep reading to learn all the ways that PowerView motorization will help upgrade your home in 2018!
First and foremost, motorized window treatments are convenient. It’s the same reason why we buy one-cup coffee makers and purchase Wi-Fi enabled refrigerators: technology makes our lives easier, and this extends as much to your window treatments as it does the other areas of your life. Whether you don’t want to interrupt your favorite movie to get up and adjust your blinds, or you work from home and want to maintain a sense of professionalism in your home office, motorized blinds and shades allow you to focus on the things that matter to you without worrying about your window treatments.
While technology is increasingly becoming a more integral part of our lives, not everyone loves it to the same degree. If you are a technophile, however, there is good news: you can operate your blinds and shades directly from your smartphone or tablet with the PowerView app! This gives you the full spectrum of functionality that PowerView offers, even letting you program your blinds and shades ahead of time, or sync them with local sunrise and sunset times. If you like things a bit more analog, Hunter Douglas still has you covered, giving you two different remote controls to choose from. The Pebble remote control is Hunter Douglas’s take on a traditional remote, but updated to include an ergonomic design and a spectrum of trendy colors to match your home’s decor. If you want the simplicity of the Pebble with a greater amount of functionality, there is also the Pebble Scene Controller, which combines the design of the Pebble and the power of the PowerView app.
Sometimes it all feels like we are living in the future: we can shout at a piece of plastic on our nightstands and hear the news, the weather, and the traffic report for our morning commute. There are thermostats that can adjust themselves, and fridges that can order our groceries for us. So why should we let our window treatments get left in the past? Not only is PowerView motorization fantastic on its own, but it can also be integrated with other home automation systems, like the ones offered from Amazon and Google, so that your whole home can benefit from PowerView’s innovation.
There are seemingly endless reasons to bring your home’s window treatments into the future with PowerView motorization, so as you’re gearing up for 2018, contact Nest Expressions to get started. Our showroom is located in Wexford, PA, but we also proudly serve Pittsburgh, Sewickley, Mars, Seven Fields, Cranberry Township, Gibsonia, Allison Park, and the surrounding areas.
