New and Improved Power Rise 2.0 with Platinum Technology from Hunter Douglas Debuts May 5Th 2010.

Gadgets that we previously saw only in a James Bond movie are now part of our daily lives. Lighting, heating, cooling, security, appliances and yes, window fashions can be automated and controlled remotely. With the Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology, you can raise and lower your window fashions using a wireless remote control. The benefits of the new system are:

1. Accommodates up to 57% larger shade sizes
2. Quieter motor- 3 decibels lower
3. Fabric covered valances with over 120 color choices
4. Common head rail/enclosed top
5. Smoother operation/no sticking or drifting
6. Easily accessible battery pack/uses AA batteries
7. Longer battery life
8. Increased operation speed/10% faster
9. Better aesthetics for receiver eye
10. Tighter fabric stack

I saw these at the Hunter Douglas presentation and was totally impressed with the quietness and ease of use. I have one ordered for a large window in my own home and am looking forward to the battery operated remote control wall switch operation. Duette Architella shadings provide three insulating air pockets that deliver superior energy efficiency in every climate and every season and can reduce energy loss up to 50%.
Have windows that you can't reach, then Platinum Technology is the answer for you. Call me to schedule an appointment to see all the options available.

Product Features and Options
Hard Wired
Motorized Hunter Douglas window coverings are designed for guaranteed operation and precise control. Window coverings can be controlled via the elegant, contemporary-styled Platinum™ wall-switch with optional Platinum remote or through any home automation system.
The Platinum wall-switch fits standard Decora™ switch plates to blend with a room's d├ęcor. Two intermediate stop positions can be set at the wall-switch to meet your needs for privacy, while still allowing natural light into a room. Plus, integrating shade control into a home automation system has never been easier.
In conjunction with a Platinum wall-switch, shades can also be controlled from a Platinum remote control. This is the same remote that is used with Hunter Douglas PowerRise®, PowerGlide®, and PowerTilt™ products. Using the Platinum remote, window coverings can be controlled individually or in groups.
Hunter Douglas motorized window fashions can also be seamlessly integrated with any home automation system. Fashion and function are no longer exclusive concepts with Hunter Douglas motorized products.
