One of the most frustrating things about a new toy is making sure you know how to use it. The Hunter Douglas PowerView motorization system requires a little training to get the most out of it. I shot the video that is attached to this blog recently for a client where only one of the homeowners was there for me to train them. This was the tutorial that I made and sent to them. I suggested that they bookmark it and watch it when they needed a refresher or if they had company that needed to work their Hunter Douglas Pirouette shades.

A couple of little tips for anyone with the Hunter Douglas PowerView motorization system (This tutorial applies to the Hunter Douglas Pirouette shades as well as many others:

  • The remote is designed to be pressed and released, not pressed and held. Just tap and release any button. If the desired shade does not move, then tap the button again, the shade probably just missed the signal the first time.
  • If you have a shade that stacks at the top only, but does not have louvers or vanes, the arrow buttons at the 3 and 9 o’clock points on the remote will not work. These are designed to tip louvers on shadings or control the middle rail of a top down/bottom up shade.
  • The Heart Button is pre-programmed to stop the shade at the half-way point of travel. It will stay this way until you override that factory setting.
