The Next Generation of Smart Shades, GEN3
Completely redesigned Powerview® Automation
With a simple push of a button or tap on a mobile device, you can transform light
and mood throughout the home. That’s the true beauty of PowerView® Automation.
The automation space is evolving and the needs of the market are evolving with it. With our latest innovations, we are offering an eco-conscious power option as well as a new premium control option to meet these needs.
Your PowerView shades will always be exactly where you want them, when you want them, thanks to Bluetooth® technology, which features real-time, two-way communication between your shades and the PowerView system.
Use the PowerView® App to control your shades with the touch of a finger. Easily activate pre-set or customized Scenes that move each of your shades to your preferred positions, then schedule those scenes to operate on their own throughout the day. You can even schedule scenes to move with the sunrise or sunset.
The App is compatible with Apple® and Android™ smartphones and tablets.
The new handheld Pebble® Remote is a modern answer to clunky remote controls of the past. This remote easily operates up to six groups of window treatments, gives you on-demand control and comes in a range of stylish colors.
For easy installation, operation and maintenance, most PowerView systems are battery-powered, and can include our environmentally friendly Rechargeable Battery Wand
Along with the added convenience of cordless operation, PowerView Automation creates a safer environment for homes with young children and pets.
PowerView Automation is compatible with sophisticated whole-home automation systems.

If obtaining this cable elsewhere, the PowerView+ system requires a four-conductor low-voltage electrical cable with two conductors (12–18 AWG) for power and two conductors (20–24 AWG) in a twisted pair for data. All cabling is recommended to have a Class 2 flammability rating and is also recommended to meet VW-1 and FT-1 flame rating standards.

Rechargeable Battery Wand
No, this battery will use the same plug-in power cord as the existing alkaline battery wand. Very convenient!
The rechargeable battery wand assembles into its respective mount, which can be either headrail mounted or satellite mounted. Headrail mounting attaches the wand directly to the back of the headrail via mounting clips. Satellite mounting
allows for flexible installation behind the headrail (as mounting depth permits) or in any desired location.
Yes. Rechargeable battery wands come fully charged to help streamline the installation process.
The rechargeable battery wand kit (wand + mount) is 13″ long, 1¼” tall, and 1″ deep. For mounting depth requirements, please refer to your product’s specifications in the Reference Guide.
The Dual Charging Station charges two battery wands simultaneously from a fully depleted state to a full charge in approximately three hours. The Single Charger charges one battery wand from a fully depleted state to a full charge in
approximately two hours.
This will vary depending on the size of the shade and the usage of the shade, but in general you can expect to recharge the battery once every year.*
The battery is warrantied for 5 years.
The battery can be recharged 500 times.
No! With the convenient design of the rechargeable battery wand, simply remove the battery from its mount, leaving the window treatment AND the mount installed. Additionally, the Single Charger’s 16-foot cable provides the option to run the cable up to the shade and recharge the battery while it remains inserted into the mount.
