Introducing Cordless Window Treatments

A window treatment’s operating system is key to eliminating dangers for little ones. Did you know that exposed and dangling cords are one of the leading home hazards for infants and young children? This is why we always recommend opting for a completely cordless window treatment for homes with children or pets.

Whether you’re interested in decorating your home with classic shutters, energy-efficient cellular shades, blinds, or more, there are so many custom Hunter Douglas window treatments to choose from that are compatible with manual or motorized cordless operating systems.

Our Favorite Cordless Operating Systems

One of the many reasons we’re proud to be a Hunter Douglas-exclusive dealer is because they design their window treatments with innovation, convenience, and safety in mind. Not only are their cordless operating systems safe for homes with children, they’re also innovative and incredibly easy to use.

Here are some of our favorite Hunter Douglas cordless operating systems:

PowerView® Automation

PowerView® Automation is our top-tier choice for several reasons. This motorized window treatment operating system is perfect for child-proofing your home, and its cutting-edge, award-winning technology allows you to control your window treatments via a Pebble® remote, the PowerView® app, or your smart home system. You can easily schedule your window treatments to open or close at certain times (like during nap time in children’s rooms, for example), and you can also tie in with your smart thermostat to raise or lower the shades when it detects a temperature above or below your preferred setting. Without lifting a finger, your window treatments adjust to increase or reduce the temperature or amount of light in your home. And the best part? You’ll never have to worry about your little one being able to hurt themselves on a cord.

LiteRise® System

Our LiteRise® System is our top choice for non-motorized cordless operating systems for your window treatments. Simply push or pull the window treatment to adjust the openness. No cord hazards here, and the cordless design looks much sleeker for your desired interior aesthetic.

The retractable wand stays at a constant length, so you don’t have to worry about small hands tangling the cord. Simply pull gently on the wand to lower or raise your shades.
