When it comes to decorating your home, there are so many options available. From paint to furniture, you can change the look of your home completely with just one purchase. 
One of the most commonly overlooked interior design options is the use of curtains, blinds, and shades.

Whether you are looking to block the morning sun or create privacy while keeping in mind the natural light, shades can be used in so many ways. 
In this article, we will be discussing operating options for TwistTM Shades, as well as the reasons for selecting the operating system manual or automatic.

Why Use TwistTM Shades?

If you are looking for a creative way to completely change the look of your home, the TwistTM Shades should be at the top of your list.

  • They prevent your home from feeling too exposed.
  • They use a combination of sheer and solid fabric bands in a single shade.

How to Operate TwistTM Shades?

TwistTMShades can be operated in 2 ways - 
  1. Manual

    Hunter Douglas offers a standard chain tensioner designed to enhance child safety, as well as an easy-to-operate chain clutch.
    TwistTMShades are made up of a series of sheer fabric bands.
    The shades can be put in 3 positions adjusting the chain tensioner:

    1. Open - provides soft filtered light while creating a view-through.
    2. Closed - provides complete privacy and blocks the light.
    3. Raised - provides an unobstructed view.
  2. Remote

    Instead of manual operation, you can control TwistTM Shades remotely using the Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation solution.
    It allows you to control your shades remotely via keypad, mobile application or the sound of your voice.

Automating your TwistTM Shades

As discussed above there are 2 ways of operating TwistTM Shades.
Manual operation can be cumbersome especially when you have children and pets around.
Hence using PowerView® Automation makes more sense.
Motorized shades are becoming more popular because they offer many benefits over manual shades. 
  • Pebble® and Surface Remote are easy-to-use remote controls that lets you adjust the TwistTM Shades with the push of one button, offering greater accuracy and control than manual shades do.

  • You can control your TwistTM Shades anytime with the PowerView® App. It is easier and more convenient than ever, as it provides you with perfect light and saves energy. 
  • The PowerView® App scheduling feature will have the TwistTM Shades move automatically to preferred positions throughout the day - all with a touch of a button, tap on your mobile device or the sound of a voice!
  • The PowerView® Hub connects to your home wifi network and is the brain of the automation system. It stores customized settings, activates schedules and provides a central point of control.
  • PowerView® App allows integration with some of the popular systems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, etc. 
  • Such integration allows you to customize room scenes for your shades and control the shades throughout the day using the apps on your smartphone or table.
