Smart Home. Smart Living.

You can transform light and mood throughout the home with a simple push of a button or a tap on a mobile device. That’s the true beauty of PowerView Motorization. With Hunter Douglas’s latest innovations, it’s never been easier to synchronize window treatments to the rhythm of our lives. Whether it is voice-controlled technology from Amazon, Google, Apple, or integrating the PowerView® system with Nest, IFTTT, Control4, and others — you can create a whole home experience unique to your lifestyle.

Batteries or no batteries, Austintatious has you covered. While each shade can be battery-operated (both rechargeable and reloadable options are available),  the luxury of not having to worry about changing the batteries definitely has its advantages. If your home is under construction, pre-wiring is a highly attractive option; dropping wires to the windows enables the shades to get power without using batteries. It’s never too early in the process to start talking about window coverings and pre-wiring for them. We are the experts; just ask us!


Smart Home. Smart Business Move.

Smart home technology is here, and it’s here to stay. As an integral part of our everyday lives, there is a huge opportunity for those involved in the design process to integrate technology with home interiors. The PowerView Motorization platform by Hunter Douglas is our recommended smart solution for automating window treatments for your clients. Beyond the convenience, energy savings, and child and pet safety. And you are staying right on trend by offering the latest and greatest Bluetooth technology, which features real-time, two-way communication between the motorized shades and the PowerView system! According to Forbes, “Smart trends are no longer reserved for the most high-end homes or saved for an upgrade years down the line—people are actually buying homes today with an eye on the existing smart home tech that’s already included.”

Whether your client has already purchased a home automation system or simply wants to operate their shades with their smartphone, wireless remote, or on a timer — controlling window treatments has never been easier. In fact, just say the words, “Open my shades,” and the voice assistant of choice will take care of the rest!

Smart Home. Smart Business Move.

Now, more than ever, consumers are demanding the convenience and efficiency of smart-home technology. To meet consumer demand, Hunter Douglas, the industry leader, is now offering PowerView Motorization as an innovative operating system that ensures the shades in your homes are an integral part of the growing connected-home market, smoothly delivering automatic operation right from the smart devices consumers use every day. And by pre-wiring your homes from the start, you ensure this technology is readily available to your homebuyers. The secret to the fluidity of the home’s wiring is it was all built in as part of the design and construction plan. It was not an afterthought.

By simply offering pre-wiring packages (typically low voltage) as an option for your clients, you’re enabling their home to be smart enabled, whether they opt to use it now or in the future. Even if they don’t think they need it now, how long before they wish they had it? Various wires can be used, low-voltage with a minimum of two conductors and/or if running communication via the wires, then the two conductor wires with two communication wires are best. The best part of all, there is a reason to purchase expensive, vendor-specific wire! Contact our team now for specific wiring instructions based on your customer’s needs.
