PowerMove™ Motorized Shade Systems

PowerMove™ Battery Powered Roller Shades by IWS

PowerMove™ Battery Powered Roller Shades by IWS are an ideal and extremely popular option for residential projects or smaller commercial projects where scalability is not a key concern. The 12v DC lithium ion battery is long lasting, easy to recharge and concealed in the shade tube. PowerMove™ battery powered shades are also among the most powerful in the industry, capable of handling shades as large as 120″ x 120″.

Key Features

Long lasting, easy recharge

Enjoy long-lasting battery life and easy recharging. Shades experiencing daily use typically last six months without needing a recharge by either a solar panel or a plug-in charger. The solar panel, which constantly trickle-charges the battery, is ideal for windows with light tinting that receive a moderate to high level of sun light. The plug-in charger should be used for windows with moderate-to-heavy tinting or windows that receive low levels of sunlight. The motor battery comes fully charged from Illinois Window Shade Company and can be typically recharged within 4-6 hours.

Mobile app with 2-way communication

Take advantage of the full features of PowerMove™ Battery Powered Roller Shades by IWS. Accurately control your shades via the animated interface on your smartphone. Two-way communication allows you to visualize the exact positioning of your shades while also allowing you to check the battery life. A set-up wizard makes it simple to get started. Create rooms, set timers & scenes for optimum comfort. The app can also be used to set or reset shade upper and lower limits.

Simple installation + programming

PowerMove™ Battery Powered Roller Shades by IWS allow you to avoid the additional work and expense that can be required of motorized shades using AC 110v or DC 24v power. Programming our motorized roller shades is a simple process made easier with guides and support videos.

Control Options

Radio Frequency (RF)

RF provides wireless control of PowerMove™ motorized shade systems through wireless wall switches, hand-held remote controls, mobile apps and sun sensors. RF is a wireless means of controlling single or multiple channels of shade systems and is the most widely used control in the industry.

Hardwired / Dry Contact

Hardwired or Dry Contact or standard controls are hardwired toggle, rocker, push button or keyed wall switches wired directly to the motor or group controller. Please note: available for 110v AC and 24v DC motors only.

Digital Network

PowerMove™ motorized shade systems can be controlled through a digital network. The digital network is designed for scalability and building integration provides the highest level of solar control capabilities on the market.

IP Building Control

PowerMove™ motorized shade systems can be controlled through an IP Building Controller providing a total solar management system as well as digital keypads and weather sensors. The system’s controllers, sensors and keypads can be added to both new and existing Digital Network installations for comprehensive solar management as either a stand-alone solution or integrated into third party control systems.
