What if you had one less task to do when you woke up and one less task to take care of when returning home after a strenuous day at work? Imagine not having to open and close your shades, and with one click of a button the job is done for you.
Opening and closing your shades may sound like a quick and easy thing to do, but if you have several windows in your home this seemingly quick task can take valuable time out of your day. Now, with longer days and abundant sunshine in the Santa Clarita valley, functional window coverings are a must have for any home.
There are a few different types of Hunter Douglas brand window fashions that can be motorized. A motor in the head rail of your shades does the work of raising, lowering or tilting. The Power Rise and Power Tilt is battery operated and the Power Glide is run by your house hold current.

 One type of motorized window covering is Platinum Technology. It’s a wireless communication system from Hunter Douglas that uses two kinds of wireless signals, one is infrared and the second is radio frequency for window covering control.
Another easy way to save valuable time is to set your shades to a timer. The Platinum LCD timer is used to automatically operate Power Rise 2.0 and Power Glide 2.0 with Platinum technology products. The Platinum LCD timer is available with applicable products like; Alustra Collection products, Applause and Duette honeycomb shades, Designer roller and Designer Screen roller shades and many more.
Conserving energy now days is just as important, so another option that comes with motorized shades is the Platinum Solar Energy Sensor. Also, the sensors small design blends well with interior décor. It automatically adjusts window coverings to the changing sunlight to provide energy cost savings.
In regards to the wireless Platinum Technology,
