Voice Control For Your Busy Life & Father’s Day

Remember the days before TV remote controls were common? To change the channel, you had to get out of your seat and turn the dial until you found something worth watching. Not exactly convenient. Many homeowners are not aware of this, but they can now operate their window coverings with the same convenience that TV remotes provide. How? By motorizing their coverings.

Touch of a Button

Motorization increases the functionality of window treatments and makes them easier to use. With a simple touch of a button, you can tilt your window blinds open or closed and raise or lower your shades. Motorization also eliminates dangling cords, which makes it an ideal safety option for homes with small children or pets.

Voice Commands To Control Shades Scenes

Use your voice to control your PowerView window treatments with a Google Assistant-enabled device. You can control individual shades, rooms and Scenes. Simply say, “OK Google” or “Hey Google” followed by the shade, room, or PowerView Scene name. Examples of phrases to control your shades include: 

“OK Google, open Bedroom Left” 

“OK Google, tilt Sun Room to 25 percent” 

“Hey Google, close the shades” 

The convenience of motorized window coverings is hard to overstate. They’re exceptionally easy to operate, and thanks to continued improvements in home automation, motorized coverings have become even simpler to use. In the same way that you program your thermostat to keep your home at an optimal temperature, you can also program your coverings for light-control adjustments at certain times of the day. Therefore, in one step, you can keep rooms cooler in the summer and warmer in winter while also preventing sunlight from fading your furniture. Now, that’s convenient.
