Secure Your Home with PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas

Leaving your home can cause worry. What if someone breaks in while you’re away? What if you come home and all your treasured possessions are gone? A home security system can provide peace of mind, but what if we told you there was something simple you could do to secure your home? Adding PowerView® Automation to your Hunter Douglas window coverings can help keep your home safer by controlling view-through opportunities and making it appear occupied even when it is not.

1. Control View-Through

View-through is great when you want to keep an eye on kids in the yard or enjoy the scenery, but it can be a liability. When others can see into your home, they can learn what valuables you have, making your home a target for thieves.

With PowerView® Automation for your Hunter Douglas window fashions, you can open and close your blinds, shades, shutters, and drapery with the push of a button. The PowerView® App makes it even easier – you don’t even have to find your Pebble® Remote to close all your window treatments at once. With Remote Connect™, you can even adjust them from anywhere in the world!

Connect your PowerView® window treatments to a smart home system to add voice commands. PowerView® is compatible with popular systems, including Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home, along with many others. With PowerView® integrated into your smart home system, adjusting your blinds is possible with a simple voice command. Just set up the scene details with your digital assistant device, and all you have to do is say something like, “Alexa, close my blinds.” This is especially great for homeowners who lead busy lives but are concerned about home security. Now you’ll never have to choose between being late because you had to close all your blinds or being on time but leaving your home vulnerable to thieves. Just call out your command phrase as you leave the house, and your digital assistant will take care of it for you.

2. Appear Occupied

The other safety concern involved with window treatments is their way of signaling that no one’s home. In houses where the shades are opened and closed often, staying closed up tight for a week at a time is a sure signal that a family has gone on vacation. You can ease this concern by setting up a schedule for your window treatments using the PowerView® App or integration with your favorite digital assistant device. Schedule your window treatments to open during small portions of the day to make it seem like the house is occupied, which is a major deterrent for criminals.
