Home automation ensures your household runs more efficiently—automatically. By integrating PowerView® Motorization with a compatible smart-home system, you can synchronize your technologies for maximum convenience.
Want to save energy on a hot, sunny day? A home-automation system can detect a temperature rise with your thermostat. The system will then close your shades to keep heat out and switch off the lights so you don’t pay extra for energy.
Want an added level of security? The same system can close your shades, lock the doors and arm the security system when you say, “Alexa, it’s bedtime.”
Because each home-automation system is different, we’ve detailed the specific guidelines and requirements below to make syncing with PowerView straightforward and stress-free.
Operating your PowerView shades just got even easier. Use Siri® on your iPhone®, iPad® or HomePod™ to operate individual shades or Scenes hands-free. Voice-activate your Scenes using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant. Learn how below.
Amazon Alexa lets you play music, listen to the news and check the weather. Now, you can also control your Hunter Douglas window treatments.
Activate PowerView Scenes with a simple voice command. Try saying, “Alexa, turn on ‘Good Morning,’” or, “Turn on ‘Dinner Party.’”
Please note: A PowerView Hub (Gen 2), is required to enable the PowerView Skill in the Amazon Alexa App. You can still connect PowerView with Amazon Alexa through IFTTT (see below).
With Apple® HomeKit™ technology, open and close your PowerView shades using the Apple Home app and Siri using your favorite Apple device such as the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and HomePod. Learn more about PowerView Motorization + Apple HomeKit
Please note: In order to enable Apple HomeKit, you’ll need a PowerView Hub, Gen 2, updated with the latest firmware, and an iPhone or iPad with the latest version of iOS.
The Google Assistant is powered by Google Home and makes it easy to activate your PowerView Scenes with voice commands.
Google Home distinguishes your voice from others in your home, creating an even more personalized experience. Try saying, “OK Google, turn on ‘Good Night Shades,’” or, “OK Google, activate ‘I’m Home.’”
Please note: In order to enable Google Assistant, you'll need a PowerView Hub, Gen 2, updated with the latest firmware, and a device enabled with the Google Assistant connected to your Google account.
