The design phase begins normally with a meeting in the apartment. First we choose fabrics and style. Based on that we match the appropriate motorization system (Battery Operated or Low Voltage) Controlling the shades can be done via the PowerView remote, a wall switch, iPhone app or a 3rd party system.

Motorized Luminette shades tracks are normally battery operated but can also be powered by a DC power supply. Motors are typically hidden behind the last pleat and all cords are eliminated.

Our in-house electrician will wire each room based on the system selected above. Battery operated shade require no wiring while DC powered shades use transformers. During wiring phase we hide all the wires leading to the transformer. Typically transformers are plugged in in outlets near the floor and wires will run inside the wall to the shade. DC systems with multiple shades sometimes use "home run wiring" to a central location in the house. The new PowerView remote and wall mount switch is wireless and does not require any wiring.

Hunter Dougals Luminette® PowerView™ Motoriztaion


Luminette® Shades offer a uniquely designed product by Hunter Douglas that does not exist anywhere in the market. With its exquisite high end design, motorization is just a naturally added feature.

Luminette® shades can be powered via battery operated motors, DC powered motors. Battery operated motors are the standard but they can be replaced with a DC power supply. Motors are installed at the end of the track and hide behind the last pleat.

Hunter Douglas has upgraded all their motors to a new PowerView™ motor line the offers advanced technology to assign and control an unlimited number of shades with a single group on the new PowerView™ remote.

In addition to the remote controlling the shade, the new motors installed on the track will send information back to the remote control, including the precise position of the shade. This is used to align multiple shades and control them to be precisely in the same position.

This feature is specially important with Luminette Shades that not only opens and closes byt but also rotates. When installing multiple Luminette shades adjacent to each other it is required that they move and rotate as one unit.

With an additional PowerView™ Hub, Silhouette Shades can be controlled via an iPhone or iPad with a free downloadable app.

A PowerView™ remote control will control not only Silhouette® but also Duette®, Luminette® and any other Hunter Douglas product.
