How do I know if my blinds are child and pet safe?
In the past, corded window coverings may have looped pull cords or accessible inner cords that could pose a risk to small children. Homestead Window Treatments offers several safety solutions, including motorized options and various operating systems to go cordless!
Do you offer motorized window treatments?
Yes, many of the Hunter Douglas & Graber products can be motorized and operate with a remote or an App on your smartphone.
What motorized shades or operating systems do you offer?
PowerView® – Our brilliant wireless operating system gives you the power to control and schedule your Hunter Douglas window treatments via remote control or your mobile device, and creates a safer environment for homes with young children and pets.
UltraGlide® – Features a single retractable cord or wand that always remains a constant length when raising and lowering your window treatments.
SoftTouch™ – A battery-powered system with wand-controlled operation.
Standard Cordlock – It acts like a cord, but locks into place for easier operation and a cleaner appearance.
EasyRise™ – Pulling down on the front of this continuous loop lowers your shade. Pulling on the rear of the loop raises it.
Top-Down/Bottom-Up – Open from the top or the bottom, or settle somewhere in between, to create the perfect balance of privacy and natural light.
