Are Motorized Window Treatments Right for Your Home?

Have you been tossing around the idea of getting motorized window treatments for your home? This may seem like a luxury, particularly with how convenient non-motorized Hunter Douglas window treatments already are, but motorized window treatments may have benefits you haven’t already considered. If you find yourself on the fence, let the window treatment professionals at Spencer Carlson in Kennewick, Washington explain why motorized Hunter Douglas window treatments are a great idea for any homeowner.


We’ll start with the obvious one first: motorized window treatments are incredibly convenient. Have you ever had to pause a movie you were watching to close your blinds because of glare? Or have you ever wanted to take an impromptu nap and had to interrupt it pull down your shades? Those will be problems of the past with Hunter Douglas motorized window treatments. Controlled remotely, your window treatments can be changed from wherever you are. With Hunter Douglas’s PowerView® system has the Pebble Remote Control and the Pebble Scene Controller, which allow you to control your window treatment from any point in your house. With the Scene Controller, you can also choose “Scenes,” or pre-set arrangements for your window treatments, for added convenience.

But the convenience doesn’t stop there. Also with the PowerView® system, you have the option of installing the PowerView® app which allows you to control your window treatments from anywhere that has a Wi-Fi connection. Have you ever checked the weather in your hometown while you were on vacation and realized you were coming home to a heat wave? Never fear returning to a boiling house again, as you can simply lower your window treatments from anywhere in the world to keep your house nice and cool with the PowerView® app.


We may not typically think of window treatments as being particularly dangerous, but the cords of traditional window treatments can actually pose a threat to small children and pets. Never worry about a pesky cord again with motorized window treatments! Your toddler or kitten won’t be tempted by dangling cords, and you’ll be able to rest easy knowing that they won’t jeopardize your window treatment either.

That isn’t the only way that motorized window treatments will keep your home safe, however. We all know that leaving lights on in your home when you travel is a deterrent to burglars, but that is such a common piece of advice now that it may be time to switch up your home security routine. While you are traveling, with the PowerView® app you will be able to raise and lower your window treatments as if you are home, providing an even more effective deterrent to potential burglars.
