Hunter Douglas Powerview vs. Lutron: Which is Better and Why?

No house is properly “Los Angeles” luxurious without a custom home automation system such as remote-controlled lighting and motorized, pre-programmed blinds. Of course, in the modern market, your options for installing a sophisticated set of automated accesorizations are nearly endless. Time and again, however, two industry staples are Lutron and Hunter Douglas, and quite often we work with customers who have a difficult time deciding which brand is right for them.

That’s why Shadows Design has written this short guide that compares the two options to help you find the best option for you. Let’s dig in!

Hunter Douglas’ Powerview

Available for both commercial and residential interiors, Hunter Douglas products have a distinct reputation of mixing dependability and versatility with grace, and their Powerview system is a great example of this.

Hunter Douglas PowerView blinds can be programmed to adjust via a tablet, smartphone, or a brand name remote controller. Homeowners can automatically set PowerView window treatments to open or close throughout the day, helping to bring in or keep out light at defined hours or minutes.

PowerView blinds can be controlled to open and close according to the exact sunrise and sunset time, even as the seasons change. In addition, PowerView blinds are battery-controlled and cordless for ease of use as well as safety.

The Powerview system can be installed to control just about any style of blinds or shades and can be custom fit to match:

  • Arches
  • Angles
  • Circles
  • Bay windows
  • Corner windows
  • Glass doors

Regardless of style, size, or shape, you can be certain that Powerview’s sophisticated and efficient technology will only serve to augment your dwelling with charisma and class. Generally, Powerview shades start at around $299 per shade.


Lutron automated shading systems are often considered an industry standard and there’s good reason for that. Known for their easy installation, Lutron shades and blinds use Clear Connect RF technology, are battery operated, and can be remotely controlled.

Lutons are super-advanced and controllable via a:

  • Tablet
  • Phone
  • Integrated home automation consoles:
  • Alexa
  • AppleHomeKit
  • Google Assistant
  • Nest
  • Sonos
  • And more!

Lutron motorized products are custom-tailored to fit the contours of any window or door, and are entirely noiseless, meaning they can be automatically adjusted 24 hours a day without causing any disturbance.

So Who’s The Winner?

The short answer: neither! It’s a tie! Both Lutron and Hunter Douglas are both fantastic shading brands that offer the most in automated comfort and efficiency for LA homes of any style.
