If you have Hunter Douglas Window Treatments with PowerView, you are used to using remotes or apps. But there is one method of control we don’t want you to forget.
The Manual Button
On all Hunter Douglas PowerView window coverings there is a manual button. On most types of blinds or shades the manual button is attached to the headrail of the shade. The exception is where the manual button is attached to a satellite eye. This is a button and receiver that is at the end of a wire. It allows the controls to be placed at a convenient location. The Hunter Douglas Luminette often will have its controls on a Satellite Eye.
Just like using the Remote Controls provided by Hunter Douglas, the manual button works with the same method. Press and release, press and RELEASE, press and RELEASE. Are you understanding? Please don’t press the manual button and hold it. Release it!. Programming takes place at the manual button. If you hold it in unintentionally, you may accidentally reprogram your shade or blind.
To properly use the manual button, just tap it once and release. the shade will go to the opposite limit. To stop the shade, tap the button again. To reverse direction, tap again. The shade will always go one direction, then stop, then go the opposite direction. The only exception to this rule is with a product like the Hunter Douglas Silhouette shade. This shade will lower, stop, then tilt open, then stop, then tilt closed, then stop and then lift.
So, now you have another option to use to control your Hunter Douglas PowerView window treatments if your remote batteries die. Use a proper stepstool or ladder to avoid injury!
