Hunter Douglas App Controlled Honeycomb Shades
In building LifeEdited 2, we aimed to create a high quality of life within a small space. The cordless Hunter Douglas Honeycomb Shades helped us do this. With big windows on both sides of the apartment, it is important to have blinds that are easy to operate such that the apartment dweller can tune their space to the particular light, noise and temperature of the city. The cellular honeycomb shape of the shades effectively keeps out light and noise pollution while also looking elegant. The Honeycomb Shades are also constructed in such a way as to keep the apartment cool and shaded on hot summer days and warm and insulated on cold winter nights, helping to cut heating and cooling energy needs by a lot. For example, upon leaving one could put the apartment in blackout mode to prevent hot summer sun from baking the apartment while out for the day.
The Honeycomb Shades are intelligent too. They can be controlled with an app on your smartphone or via their attractive “pebble” remote. We love being able to adjust the blinds with the click of a single button. Their PowerView Motorization technology allows us to make settings that are specific to our apartment and our schedules. Late and early in the day the sun beams into the LifeEdited 2 office, so Graham has a partially shaded setting for those times of day in particular. Plus, because the blinds can be used from the bottom up or the top down, they are great for letting light into the apartment while also preserving privacy. Finally, being battery operated they are much easier (and cheaper!) to install than wired blinds.
