Hunter Douglas Unveils Aura Illuminated Shades: A Revolution in Smart Shading Design

Elevate Your Home Lighting Experience with Aura: Innovative Three-in-One Design and Smart Integration | High Def Technologies Inc. 


In a groundbreaking announcement at CEDIA Expo 2023, Hunter Douglas has introduced a revolutionary addition to the world of smart shading – the Aura Illuminated Shades. Representing a fusion of cutting-edge technology and elegant design, these shades redefine the way we experience light and ambiance in our homes.

The Three-in-One Design

At the core of the Aura Illuminated Shades is a three-in-one design that seamlessly integrates a traditional-looking front shade, a reflective room-darkening liner, and ambient illumination through programmable LEDs. This unique combination aims to provide a customized experience, elevating the mood and ambiance within a connected home

Harmonizing with Natural Light

Recognizing the positive impact of natural light on well-being, sleep quality, and productivity, Hunter Douglas designed the Aura Illuminated Shades to emulate natural light. Smartly blending motorized shade functionality with a built-in LED feature, these shades allow homeowners to control both natural and artificial light, achieving precise and comfortable illumination at any time.

Customizable Lighting Experience

The built-in LED feature incorporates a parabolic reflector and a reflective liner to evenly disperse light from top to bottom. Homeowners can personalize the color temperature (from 2200K to 6500K) and brightness (from 0% to 100%), creating a lighting experience reminiscent of daylight shining through a traditional shade. This tunable white lighting supports various routines, from simulating sunrise to setting the perfect ambiance for entertainment.

Versatility in Design and Functionality

Aura Illuminated Shades seamlessly blend into various Hunter Douglas shade styles, including Vignette Stacking Roman Shades, Sonnette Cellular Shades, and Designer Roller Shades. The customizable fabric options ensure these shades meet the aesthetic needs of any space. Whether in a media room, living room, bedroom, or any other area of the home, Aura transforms lighting to suit the occasion

Integrating Smart Home Technology

Complementing the innovative design of Aura is the reliable and scalable PowerView Gen 3 Automation. Homeowners can effortlessly personalize scenes, schedule automations, and transform the ambiance through the PowerView App, Pebble Remote, voice commands, or smart home systems. Additionally, Aura is compatible with PowerView+, a premium low-voltage hardwired power solution featuring an ultra-quiet motor.

With the official release of Aura Illuminated Shades, Hunter Douglas continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in lighting and shading design. Offering a perfect blend of style, comfort, convenience, energy efficiency, and wellness benefits, Aura represents a significant step forward in the evolution of smart home technologies. As homeowners seek unique and personalized solutions for lighting design and wellness, the Aura Illuminated Shades stand out as a beacon of innovation and sophistication.
