SIMPLE, INTUITIVE WAND-CONTROLLED OPERATION
Hunter Douglas offers SoftTouch Motorization which is an affordable battery-powered system with wand-controlled operation. Gently pull down on the wand to lower shades and push up to raise them. Operation is intuitive and easy and the motorized wand control provides superior child and pet safety since there are no cords. An added feature is the ability to set a favorite shade position.
Shadeomatic offers a PowerWand motorized lift system which is an easy, cord-free motorized operating system for the budget savvy homeowner. To operate, you simply press the up or down button on the pendant to raise or lower the shading to your desired position. No programming is required with PowerWand as upper and lower limits are set at the factory. The PowerWand rechargeable wand and pendant is attached to the top of the shade and requires no additional mounting. The wand is available in black or white, comes in 1 foot increments from 1 to 5 feet, and is available on either the right or left side of the shade. The battery life will vary based on the type of window covering, the size and weight of the window covering and the number of times you operate the blind on a daily basis. There is an 8.4 volt charger which requires a standard power outlet to recharge the battery. The charger plugs into the charger port on the side of the wand pendant. The charger is black and comes with a 156” wire.
Graber offers a simple, intuitive motorized control called Virtual Cord. Shades can be conveniently operated from virtually anywhere in the home, up to 65 feet with a press of a button. This system offers consistent motor speed regardless of the size or weight of the shade and efficiently manages energy by controlling heat gain and loss. Virtual cord is a safer alternative to accessible cords that are traditionally used to operate window coverings making it an ideal choice for homes with children and pets.
