Motorization for the modern home with The Hunter Douglas Platinum App

The Platinum App from Hunter Douglas, is probably the best and most convenient way to automate your window coverings. It simplifies automation by allowing full control of your entire home from either an I-phone or I-pad( It will be released on other platforms in the near future).  Starting in 2012 all the new Hunter Douglas window coverings sold allow for handheld app integration with the Platinum App from Hunter Douglas

How it works:

It works by connecting a bridge kit to your home router/modem, The Platinum App Bridge is the heart of the system. It stores your programmed data and sends signals to operate window fashions via Platinum Repeaters. Platinum Repeaters simply plug into a wall outlet and extend the range of the signal throughout your home.

The following Shades from Hunter Douglas are available:

  • Hunter Douglas Silhouette
  • Hunter Douglas Pirouette
  • Hunter Douglas Vignette
  • Hunter Douglas Duette
  • Hunter Douglas Applause
  • Hunter Douglas Nantucket
  • Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades
  • Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades
  • Hunter Douglas Luminette Privacy Shears
  • Hunter Douglas Skyline Panel Track

 

We have just recently set up our new Markham Showroom with all the new blinds and new motors, we only use 1 repeater and have had no issues. The app is very user friendly, and allows for multiple “scenes” and settings to be set up. Also future development is in the works to make the app more versatile and functional from different locations.

The App is available online in  App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/platinum-app/id556728718?mt=8) and its developers are providing upgrades to the software frequently. Overall we are extremely impressed with the ease of operation and its quick and simple setup, its an excellent feature to add to your motorized Hunter Douglas Shades.
