PowerView® Motorisation is a sophisticated system from Luxaflex®, designed to help you make the most of your home.
Don’t get up from your book or cosy spot on the sofa – simply raise or lower your blinds with the touch of a button. Use your PowerView Motorisation app or remote control to adapt the settings on your blinds so that they close just as the sun begins to cause a glare on your TV in the evening.
PowerView Motorisation makes life easier for busy parents by allowing you to operate your blinds while taking care of your children – when you’re trapped on the sofa with a sleeping infant on your chest, for example. As your children grow, they’ll learn to operate the blinds safely without any dangerous dangling cords.
Control your blinds with a remote or your smartphone. Some PowerView Motorisation systems can even be controlled with just the sound of your voice. You can operate a single blind or multiple blinds at a time, choosing an individual schedule for each one or changing them all at the same time through group control.
Integrates seamlessly with smart home systems
Your motorised blinds work alongside your lights and thermostats. Pair PowerView with a smart lighting system and schedule certain lights to come on in your home as your blinds are closing. This also works the other way around (switching off all the lights in your home when your blinds open in the morning).
A solution for windows in inconvenient locations
PowerView Motorisation is perfect for windows that are out of reach (for example, skylight windows or conservatories) or windows where direct access is inconvenient (such as behind the sofa). It also works very well with large blinds, where manual operation can be difficult.
It goes without saying that a system using PowerView Motorisation will be more expensive than regular blinds. However, the initial cost outlay can end up saving you money over time. There are two reasons for this.
Firstly, PowerView Motorisation offers unparalleled control over lighting in your home. Schedule your blinds to fully open and allow as much light in as possible during daylight hours, so you won’t have to turn lights on. Some smart home technologies may even allow you to control your lights and your blinds from the same device.
Secondly, your blinds can provide insulation. During the summer months, you can close your blinds against the sun’s rays to prevent your house from heating up – lessening the need for air conditioning or fans on hot days. During the winter months, close your blinds in the evening to trap heat in your home and reduce your reliance on heating. By integrating PowerView with a smart home system, you can even set your blinds to react as your thermostat changes – closing during the hottest parts of the day, or opening on cold, yet sunny days to let heat and light in.
The sun’s rays can cause fading, discolouration, and other irreversible damage to your belongings. PowerView Motorisation helps to protect your furniture and soft furnishings from the sun by scheduling your blinds to close during hours when sunlight is harshest (for example, in the early afternoon when the sun’s rays begin to come directly into your house).
By programming your blinds to open and close automatically at certain parts of the day, you can leave for work or vacation and your home will still appear to be occupied. This can help deter burglars. If you’re trying to save money on your energy bills, just switch a few lights on at the front of your home.
The safest option for children and pets
As we already mentioned briefly, blinds with cords are a hazard for young children – especially when the cord is looped. Children and pets can become entangled in the cords, causing a suffocation hazard. Blinds with PowerView Motorisation are cordless, so you can rest easy as a parent or a pet owner.
Improved sleep quality
For light sleepers, there is often nothing worse than trying to fall asleep in a room that is not completely dark. But blackout blinds can sometimes work a little too effectively, making it difficult to wake up in the morning. PowerView Motorisation allows you to schedule your blinds according to your local sunrise time. Your blinds can open gradually throughout the morning, allowing you to wake up slowly and naturally. No more jolting awake in the pitch black to the sound of your alarm clock!
