Why You Need Motorized Window Sheers

The Benefits of Motorized Window Sheers

From your kitchen to your laundry room to your bedroom, smart technology is slowly filling the everyday home. But did you know that now your window treatments can join your smart home family? Modern window treatments, like Hunter Douglas window sheers powered by PowerView® Automation, are just as adaptive as any other smart technology in your home all while looking stylish in the process. “Motorized” doesn’t have to mean clunky or loud. Here, “motorized” translates to a sleek and powerful system that illuminates your home in gorgeous lighting. At WTI, Inc., we love our motorized sheers, including our collections of Silhouette® and Pirouette® Window Shadings from Hunter Douglas. This month, we’re taking a closer look at the benefits of switching to motorized window sheers and why these amazing window coverings should be on your radar.

Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings – Concord, Massachusetts (MA) why you need motorized window sheers

Beautiful Style

If you enjoy the classic appeal of window sheers, you’re sure to love this innovative style from Hunter Douglas. Silhouette® Window Shadings reinvent typical window sheers with a style that combines adjustable lighting with the soft glow of filtered light. Silhouette® features S-shaped, adjustable fabric vanes suspended between two sheers for a graceful, floating appearance. Silhouette® moves fluidly through the air as you raise and lower your sheers for a dynamic pop of visual interest on your windows. Silhouette® offers a wealth of colors and fabrics to choose from with the exclusive Alustra® Collection, as well as specialty shapes and sizes for even those tricky windows.

Enhanced Privacy and Protection

Pirouette® Window Shadings, much like Silhouette®, features adjustable, front-facing fabric vanes suspended on a single sheer backing. This results in an elegant window treatment that allows you to easily control incoming lighting. The adjustable vanes let you enjoy full, diffuse light when you want it, and privacy when it’s time to wind down for the day. Pirouette® keeps your home protected from damaging UV rays and helps keep your home shaded from excessive solar heat gain.

Sleek Control

Both Silhouette® and Pirouette® window sheers offer an array of operating systems, making it easy to find the perfect solution for your home’s unique needs. Tilt incoming lighting with the LiteRise® system that lets you adjust your shades with just a touch. Or take your window treatments to the next level with innovative motorized control with PowerView® Automation. Transform your window sheers into smart technology with the touch of a button on the Pebble® remote or with the power of your smartphone. PowerView® smoothly integrates into your home’s existing smart technology including Apple HomeKit, Google Nest, and Logitech compatibility. Program individual lighting schedules for each window in your home from one convenient location. Even when you’re away, you can rely on your windows to operate on the schedule you create in the user-friendly app. No more getting back out of bed or leaving the cozy couch to fuss for that perfect lighting angle.
