The time has finally come. Our home appliances and voice activation work in sync!

Why Motorized Shades?
A convenient environment is a happy environment! With our fast-paced, chaotic lives, our homes simply knowing what we need and when we need it, is becoming more of a necessity. Imagine your home automatically closing your shades when the thermostat rises to a certain temp, or your shades rising in the morning waking you up just in time for your morning coffee!
Not only will you be able to automate your appliances based on times of the week–like smart shades that know you want to sleep longer on the weekends–but, leaving your house for vacation can be a breeze as well, with easy access on the go!
Here’s How To Get Started!
Just find your Apple HomeKit App on your phone where you’ll be greeted with a “ Welcome Home” screen. Simply tap the “Get Started” options and you’ll be on your way to personalizing your smart home!
“Where do my automatic blinds fit in?” You can visit Apple Home online to get a list of compatible accessories, where your Hunter Douglas motorized shades can be integrated!
