PowerShades, provider of manual and automated window shades for residential, commercial and hospitality applications, has introduced its Mobile App for control, pairing for RF automated shades, and limit setting for its True PoE (Power over Ethernet) automated shades. 

With the PowerShades Mobile App, users can control PowerShades’ complete line of motorized shades, including the company’s TruePoE automated shades. Custom integrators, who may need to pair RF shades to a gateway, can use their phones, in lieu of multiple remotes, to create ease of use for clients. 

Said PowerShades President Jason Turner, explained: “If the user isn’t close to the remote, they can just click open the app and total shade control is at their fingertips. The app doesn’t have to be on the same network as the smart device, so the user can control their shades from literally anywhere.”

For both RF and PoE shades, the PowerShades Mobile App lets users control single shades or groups of shades at the same time. It also can be used in conjunction with other home control systems and control options. When controlling shades as a group, the app will automatically choose the shortest path to attain the desired position for the group of shades. 

The app also shows the position of all the shades, even from a remote location and provides signal feedback, so the user can determine the strength of the connection of the shade to the gateway (RF) or if the network is online (PoE).

The PowerShades Mobile App is available from both Google Play and the Apple App Store.
