Hard to reach windows? Windows 10’ high? Avoiding dangling cords to ensure child and pet safety? All the big window blind manufactures are now making them… shades with a motorized lifting system. Our bestseller is the Hunter Douglas Duette line. The Duette PowerRise with Platinum Technology is offering the latest technology on the market. Now you can enjoy dual methods of controlling motorized operation:
· Infrared (IR) line-of-sight remote control for operating individual shades
· Radio frequency (RF) out-of-site control for operating groups of shades (up to 100 feet away from shade(s)
On products powered by Hunter Douglas’ Platinum Technology you can use either control method with the same remote control.
Some technical bits of information on this new piece of technology:
The shade has a battery wand that uses 8 AAA batteries which is hidden inside the headrail. Battery life is approximately 1 year depending on usage and should be replaced when the shade begins to operate slowly. With the RF technology, the traditional pointing of the remote control is not necessary any longer. Shades can even be operated from another room. By clicking a simple UP or DOWN button shades can be lowered or raised. A group of shades can be programmed for individual operation or in a group setting, depending on preference.
Its popularity has been on the rise and is now also available with Hunter Douglas’ Applause shades, the honeycomb shade that won’t break your budget. Please browse all Duette or Applause shades on our Hunter Douglas page for more information.
