Upgrade your home with Automated Window Treatments (with PowerView®)
With innovation in tech comes innovation in convenience and comfort. For many people, their home is the most comfortable place to be, and because of this, home automation is more important than ever. We’ve contacted local window covering experts, Windo VanGo, to get the latest Smart Automation available for your windows.
Andrew Redenbarger, president of Windo VanGo in Broomfield, talked about just how smart a window treatment can be.
“We’re proud to work with Hunter Douglas because they have done an amazing job listening to customers over the years to improve upon the motorized options for window treatments. The latest generation is PowerView© 3, providing control via either your mobile device or remote. The PowerView Automation lets you set up your shades to do what you want when you want.
PowerView is available to be integrated with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKits. So, you can control the shades with your voice or your phone and schedule them to open and close at specific times of the day. It can be hard-wired, or battery operated, rechargeable battery packs are also available.”
Redenbarger pointed out other innovative products that customize your home to your needs:
Looking for light-enhancing shades to let you enjoy the beauty of natural light? Silhouette shades can make any space more captivating. The adjustable S-shaped vanes will go between light-diffusing front and back sheer panels in more than 150 fabric and color choices.
Hunter Douglas drapes are made for sound absorption to create a quieter, more relaxing room and reduce exterior noise. There are sophisticated fabrics that are perfect for layering — or on their own in exclusive designs by featured artists and more than 250 fabric and color choices.
Windo Van Go can also help you earn rebates and tax credits. Rebates start at $150 on qualified products that increase energy efficiency.
Select Duette® Honeycomb Shades — let you earn up to 30 percent of the purchase price back in the form of a tax credit, up to a maximum annual amount of $1,200. Duette Honeycomb Shades are designed to provide superior insulation for windows, helping to lower your monthly utility bills while reducing your energy use and helping create a more sustainable environment.
Redenbarger said that Windo VanGo can assist in identifying the correct documentation for the products that qualify for the tax credit. Then your tax professional can help you see how it applies to you.
Redenbarger added, “We’re excited to share that PowerView Automation (Gen 3) winner of a 2023 Mark of Excellence Award. Presented by the Smart Home Division of the Consumer Technology Association, PowerView Automation (Gen 3) was named Automated Shade Product of the Year.”
To make it easy to get your smart window solutions, Windo VanGo offers free home consultations. Redenbarger said, “Our salespeople are trained to come to your home and figure out what would work best for you. They complete the measurements to ensure a good fit and show you all the different fabrics and products for your ideal solution. They help you figure out what suits your home and our installers ensure a nice fit to every window, giving the customer the look they wanted.”
Redenbarger recommends that you schedule your free at-home consultation a week in advance. That way you can be as smart as the windows treatments.
