Technology is making the use of your window coverings more convenient, more efficient and more fun. Hunter Douglas is the leader in window fashion technology and a recent development makes some really high-end features available to the typical consumer. Sure, some people have full home automation systems, but most people live in homes that were not wired for them. Using things like the Hunter Douglas Platinum Bridge, you are able to take your iPad or iPhone and use it as a home automation system for your window coverings. All you have to do is use a combination of bridges and repeaters as necessary. Since every job is different, we provide consultation to make sure you are doing it correctly. Then, your iDevice will integrate perfectly using the Hunter Douglas Platinum app. Listen, I’m an Android user, and I can’t wait for it to be available on that platform, but in the meantime, I’m embracing the opportunity by purchasing an iPad! The Android release date continues to be pushed back, but it will come out at some point and this blog will be one of the first to let you know.

There are specifics that can make your automation either a smooth and easy part of every day life or a complete nightmare. We have spent a lot of time receiving training that helps us help you. Feel free to contact us, no matter where you are if you are planning a home automation system in your custom home. We would be happy to help.
