Pairing PowerView® Automation & Blackout Shades

Sometimes in life, two is better than one. Two scoops of ice cream are always better. Two matching socks, make us feel like we have a pep in our step. Two shots of espresso help make our mornings productive and pleasant. The same applies when it comes to our home. For the ultimate in light control and energy efficiency, pair two powerful window products to create the most peaceful atmosphere yet in any room in your home—PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas and a shading option with blackout capabilities, like our Duette® Cellular Shades.

Known for its capability of adjusting your window treatments without you having to run around your home, shades with PowerView® Automation are quickly entering the homes of thousands across the country. After all, who doesn’t want added convenience? Known for providing unparalleled darkness, that allows you to achieve deep REM, sleep, black out shades are another popular home edition. So, what happens when you combine automated and black out shades?

Reasons to Go for the Combo

When you combine PowerView® automation and blackout shades, you get to enjoy darkness and shade when you need it, and sunlight when you want it. All this without any of the hassle. Let’s take you through what this kind of day looks like.


After enjoying a deep night’s rest thanks to your Hunter Douglas blackout shades blocking out moonlight, street lamps, and car headlights, your body and mind are ready for the day. However, instead of waking up to a blaring alarm clock in the dark, PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas gently opens your shades at the time you scheduled them to. Talk about a nice start to your day!


: Oh, man. That summer sun sure is hot, isn’t it? You don’t want to leave your AC running all day, but you also don’t want to come home to a hot house after work. So, you use your Pebble® Control to close up to six window treatments at a time in your home. You leave the house knowing that your blackout shades reduce heat and sun penetration, so you’ll come home to a cooler space.


Don’t want to get up during your movie marathon, but hate that car headlights keep causing glare on your TV? Simply tell your favorite PowerView® Automation-compatible smart-home device to shut your media room or living room shades.


As you settle into bed, you watch your shades automatically adjust according to your bedtime schedule and plunge into a soothing darkness for your best sleep. No more disturbed REM sleep from natural light, artificial light, or outside noise pollution.
