If you have the Hunter Douglas Remote Control (“Puck and Pebble”) which is the technical name of their hand-held remote control read this blog. This little trick is going to save you time, money and frustration. One of the most common calls that we get from existing customers is having to do with weak or dead batteries. This is one simple fix.

The way that the Hunter Douglas Remote Control comes from the factory is with a motion sensor turned on. This means that every time that you move the “Pebble”, the lights turn on. So, if you are the type that carries it around, your lights will be on almost all the time, which causes the batteries to diminish pretty quickly. What is the solution? Please watch the video.

Turning the Lights Off On Your Hunter Douglas Remote Control

The solution is very simple, but impossible to figure out without direction. Just press and hold the #6 Button until the lights flash. Then you can move the Hunter Douglas remote control all you want without battery drainage.

Should you turn off the lights on your Puck? This is dependent on you. Some people want the lights to come on so they can see the directional signals on the Hunter Douglas remote control in the dark. You can certainly leave the settings as they are, but keep this simple tip in mind too. If you want the lights to turn on, just press any button on the remote and the lights pop on immediately. I tend to use the stop button at the center of the remote so that I don’t cause the shades to move with my actions.

Thanks for reading our blog. I hope this simple tip helps you to get the greatest battery life out of the Hunter Douglas Remote Control. Here is another video that we created a while ago to show how to change the batteries on your Remote.
