PowerView Hunter Douglas Window Treatment Motorization

Motorization & Automation Options For Hunter Douglas Window Treatments From Closet Works

Hunter Douglas logo mark Motorization Systems

When you purchase from Closet Works, your beautiful new shades, blinds and curtains also have the potential to operate remotely using a motorized operating system. The power system appropriate for your custom window covering depends mostly on the type of product you purchase, however, all systems are built on the most innovative technology in the industry. Motorization is one of the operating system options for most Hunter Douglas shades, sheers, panels and vertical or horizontal blinds. Plantation shutters are not yet available with motorization due to the heavier weight of this type of window treatment. Most Hunter Douglas motorizations are battery powered, so they are easy to install, operate and maintain. The battery pack is hidden behind the headrail, so there is nothing to mar the beauty of your windows. Furthermore, the simple cord-free operation is aesthetically pleasing and safer for homes with children and pets.


  • Closet Works is proud to offer the state-of-the-art PowerView® Motorization system from Hunter Douglas. Perfect lighting, energy efficiency, everyday convenience — it's all delivered automatically with PowerView®. PowerView® smart controls work with your home's WiFi network. It uses a remote control to adjust window treatments at the touch of a button. Using your PowerView® App, you can quickly create customized Scenes that control all the motorized window treatments in your home, operating together or in any combination you desire. Then, just schedule those Scenes to automatically move your shades to your preferred positions. You can use it to move your shades according to the sun's daily patterns to reduce solar heat gain in summer and solar heat loss in winter. You can also adjust your shades for added security while you're away via the RemoteConnect™ feature on your smartphone or tablet. Whether you want to move the shades up or down, tilt or traverse them, PowerView® Motorization gives you precise and convenient control of your Hunter Douglas window treatments.
