We didn't invent light. We just created a smarter, simpler and more convenient way to control how it plays through your daily life.
Welcome to PowerView® Motorisation from Luxaflex® Window Fashions, bringing you intelligent shades that simplify your life. This innovative wireless system controls Luxaflex Softshades, roller blinds or Evo awnings in your home. Operate a single blind or all of them in perfect concert - all on your command.
PowerView® Motorisation offers precise control of a variety of different Luxaflex products and styles, whether up, down, tilt or traverse that you can control via the PowerView App or via one of our stylish Pebble® remotes. PowerView allows you to quickly create customised Scenes that control all the shades in your home to operate together or in any combination you desire. You can then easily schedule those Scenes to move your shades automatically so you don't have to.
PowerView also allows you to easily link to sunrise and sunset times, to control solar energy throughout the seasons or wake with the sun.
For peace of mind, your shades can be adjusted while you are away via the RemoteConnect feature on your smartphone or tablet. The PowerView system offers a cord-free solution, making your home safer for children and pets.

Meet the PowerView Pebble, the stylish handheld control and the entry point for the entire PowerView system.

The Pebble is the perfect union of form and function, both simply elegant and elegantly simple.
Now introducing 3 new ultra-modern neutral colours, there will be a pebble to suit every personality and every room.
Within the app you simply create your Rooms, add your blinds to those Rooms then make a selection and use product-specific slider bars to adjust your blinds to precise positions. If you prefer to have Rooms operate independently, or work together in total synchronisation, you can use the PowerView App to create distinct Scenes for your daily life. Your unique collection of personalised Scenes is easy to set up, operate and manage.
Name them, colour code them and organise them in the way that is easiest for you and your family to use. For example, greet the day with the arrival of the sun by opening the blinds in your Master Bedroom and Kitchen to the perfect position for your morning activities. In the evening, have the whole home gracefully close out the day and ensure your privacy.
For more precise individual shade control or group control, use the PowerView App to send shades to specific positions with just the swipe of a finger. The PowerView App is available on Apple® iOS and Android® mobile devices and requires a PowerView Hub for operation.
The innovative PowerView Hub easily connects to your home’s existing WiFi router and acts as the central nervous system for the entire PowerView Motorisation system. It integrates all your motorised blinds with the PowerView App, providing direct blind control and customised Scene settings from a single, central device.
The sleek PowerView Surface Remote is wall-mounted so you know your remote is right where you left it. With the Surface Remote you can enter a room and just as you would switch on a light, your shades operate at your command.
The choice is yours. Scenes can be created within individual Rooms and compiled into Multiple Room Scenes to activate a whole host of activity throughout the home with a single press.
Once you have your Scenes created, you can control them on command with the PowerView Pebble® Scene Controller or even your phone or tablet from anywhere in the world using RemoteConnect.
The PowerView App is available on Apple App Store and Google Play stores for download. Click on the link to be taken to the app page, or within the store search for "PowerView" then download and install the application.
The PowerView Hub enables use of the PowerView App. The PowerView Hub connects to a Wi-Fi router, and communicates with Luxaflex window coverings that feature PowerView Motorisation. It stores user-defined data, such as Scene and Automation information, and provides control of window coverings from anywhere in the world using the RemoteConnect feature.
No, an internet connection is not necessary for the ongoing use of the PowerView app. However, an internet connection is required for the initial set up of the PowerView Hub in order for the Hub to download the latest firmware update. An internet connection is also necessary for the RemoteConnect feature and for keeping the time, date and your Hub firmware up to date.
The PowerView App is available for Apple® iOS (running version 10.0 and newer) and Android® mobile devices (running version 4.4, KitKat, and newer).
A Scene is a combination of pre-programmed window covering positions in any given room, adjusted to the exact position that you want. Scenes can be created and operated by the PowerView App to meet different light and privacy needs throughout the day. Just activate the Scene and with a touch of a button the window coverings will move to their perfect pre-set positions. You can even set your Scenes to automatically follow your daily activities using the Automation feature of the PowerView App.
RemoteConnect is a feature within the PowerView App that allows users to activate Scenes while outside the home, anywhere internet connectivity is possible.
The PowerView Shade Network is a unique radio frequency ID that allows PowerView Motorisation devices to communicate with each other within a home. All PowerView Devices in a home should be added to the same PowerView Shade Network. This allows for easy installation of additional control options, such as the PowerView Hub, PowerView Repeaters and PowerView Scene Controllers.
Ranges of radio frequency (RF) signals in a home vary based on construction and conditions in the home (electronic devices, plumbing, electrical runs, etc). Operational distances will vary based on the construction of individual homes. Large open areas promote greater operational distances similar radio components are used for the PowerView Remote, PowerView Hub and PowerView Scene Controllers. PowerView Repeaters are available to extend the range when needed.
The PowerView Repeater works alongside the PowerView Remotes, Scene Controllers, and the PowerView Hub to expand coverage of your PowerView Shade Network within the home.
