Modern technology allows you to use your phone to control your window coverings. In the attached video you can see how to use an iPhone to control Hunter Douglas Applause Shades. All that is required is a phone with Android or IOS operating system, a Hunter Douglas blind or shade with the smart motor PowerView installed and a Hub, which is a programmable WiFi based piece of hardware. The key is the Hub. Once it is programmed, any phone which is attached to the WiFi network will be able to control the shades if the Hunter Douglas PowerView app is downloaded.

The Hub holds the programming, not the phone. You are even able to work the shades when you are away from the home using the RemoteConnect feature. One thing that you will notice if you watch the video is that when you have a Top Down/Bottom Up shade, both rails will move at the same time. This saves time and is very cool to watch. Here is what Hunter Douglas says on their website, “The PowerView App unlocks the full potential of PowerView Motorization. Using the App on your smartphone or tablet, you can create and schedule customized room Scenes that allow your window coverings to operate on their own throughout the day.””Set Your Perfect Scene-Start by creating Scenes—different combinations of each shade in the room, adjusted to the exact position you want at different times of the day based on your light, privacy and overall room ambiance preferences.” There are so many amazing ways to use your window coverings when they do what you want, when you want, without having to operate them manually.
