Maximize Your Motorized Shades with the Rechargeable Battery WandOctober 7, 2020
This just in: The rechargeable battery wand is here, and we can’t get enough of it! Now you can easily improve the convenience and eco-friendliness of the motorized shades you already have, and any future ones you might get. Let’s take a look at the details.
A Few Favorites
Who doesn’t love saving money while also saving the planet? It’s one of our favorite things about the rechargeable battery wand! Instead of purchasing new batteries every time they die, you can simply recharge. The best part? One charge should last about a year.
A Closer Look at the Rechargeable Battery Wand
The sleek and slim rechargeable battery wand measures at only 13 x 1.25 x 1 inches, making it easy to hide. Plus with two options of how to charge, satellite or mounted, all you have to do is simply remove where it’s mounted and charge it.
As shown above, with the mounting option, it sits behind the headrail or alongside the window frame. And as shown below, with the satellite option, simply connect a cord to the shade and mount the wand.
The PowerView App and the Shutoff Feature
If you already have motorized shades in your home, you’re probably familiar with how amazing the PowerView app can be. Well, the new rechargeable battery wand can easily connect with your PowerView app! You’ll get a notification through your PowerView app or via e-mail telling you your battery is low. Plus, with the shutoff feature, issues caused by overheating are a thing of the past. Daily, your shades are exposed to direct sunlight. While seemingly harmless, your windows can become too hot. If your wand reaches an unsafe temperature, the shutoff feature will kick in and automatically shut off your wand.
Just like with the mounting, you have two options for the charging station. You can pick from either a single or double. The single station allows you to charge your wand in about 2 hours. Meanwhile, with the double, you can charge two wands in about 3 hours. Each charge will give you typically a year of use, or approximately 500 adjustments. You might be wondering what option is best for you if you have multiple smart shades in your home. Depending on how many wands you have to charge, that will help you make your decision.
