Operating Systems for Homes

Operating systems for homes near Boone, North Carolina (NC), that provide hands-free blind, shade, and shutter operation.

The Benefits of Operating Systems

When you choose your home window treatments, you’re most likely thinking about the best colors and materials to use in each room or the type of light control you want for your windows. These are all excellent things to consider, but you should also consider how your window treatments are operated. You can choose unique and innovative operating systems for homes from Hunter Douglas on many custom window treatments you install in your home for added convenience and safety. 


This operating system allows you to have a sleek and safe wand or single cord rather than a series of dangling cords. Just pull straight down repeatedly in a stroking motion to raise your shades and pull down from an angle to lower them. Not only does this operating system declutter your windows, but it also makes operation far easier while also getting rid of tripping and tangling hazards for pets and children. This makes it one of our favorite operating systems for homes that currently have a family or are considering starting one.


Available for a wide range of custom blinds and shades, this cordless operating system makes your home safer while making operation easy and intuitive. Plus, your windows will look better than ever with custom blinds that don’t have hanging cords attached to them. The system features a subtle handle that you can grab onto in order to raise and lower your blinds or shades with your hands. The system works incredibly smoothly and takes little effort to use, which makes it another excellent option when exploring operating systems for homes.

SoftTouch™ Motorization

You can also bring your window coverings into motion through motorization. This motorized operating system features a sleek and stylish hanging wand that takes the place of any hanging cords. Just press up on the bottom of the wand to open your shades and pull down on it to lower your shades. The system is effortless to use and works responsively to your touch. You can even make a single motion one direction or the other to quickly raise or lower your shades completely while you walk away. These are just a few reasons why we recommend SoftTouch™ Motorization for families exploring operating systems for homes.

PowerView® Motorization

One of the most innovative operating systems for homes is the PowerView® Motorization operating system. This battery-powered operating system features small but powerful motors that don’t alter the appearance of your window coverings in any way. In fact, they make your windows look even cleaner than before since you don’t need any cords or adjustment tilt-bars. You can use this motorized operating system from your phone by using the PowerView app or you can control your windows with your voice by integrating voice command systems with the app.
