If you are looking for an amazing, do anything product, you might consider the Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shade. Shown in this Sparks, NV home, it adds to the decor perfectly. This homeowner decided to do their project with the PowerView motorization system. The Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades can be operated either with a push button on the shade, by use of a radio frequency remote control, or by use of an internet based app, called PowerView by Hunter Douglas. This customer is using all of the above, to create a truly integrated remote control system. Let’s face it, apps are cool, but sometimes when you are elbows deep in a gluten-free cupcake recipe, you don’t want to fool around with your phone or tablet. You can just tap the button on the remote control, which is wall mounted, in this case, and be done with it.

There is one thing to know about radio controlled window coverings. And that is that they are guaranteed to NOT RECEIVE the signal 100% of the time. This may require you to hit the button again under some circumstances. Oh, the humanity!!! The only way to guarantee that your window coverings, like this Hunter Douglas Pirouette, or Silhouette or other similar product will receive the signal every time is to hard wire the controls. This would require a wire to each shade and a switch on the wall, or other location, that when depressed would send a signal to the shade. For most clients, though, they are happy with the RTS signal and receiver in their Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades.
