Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Wireless Wall Switch
The new Platinum Technology(TM) Wireless Wall Switch adds another level of control over Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology products. It works with all PowerRise(TM) and PowerTilt(TM) systems and the new PowerGlide(TM) 2.0 system for both Luminette Privacy Sheers AND Skyline Gliding Window Panels.
The wireless wall switch is powered by 2 AA batteries. The device sends radio frequency signals (RF) to Hunter Douglas Platinum-powered systems to make the window treatment raise, lower, tilt, or traverse.
|UNIVERSAL CONTROLS / AUTOMATION|
Automation / Integration
There are currently two motorized systems available from Hunter Douglas:
1) Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Battery Operated Lift System
2) Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Hardwired System
The Battery Operated Lift System called "Platinum Technology 2.0" is new as of May 2010 and can now be integrated into Home Automation Systems with the use of a "Connection Interface" or an RF Adapter that plugs directly into a Z-Wave / Zigbee enabled outlet. Usually one Connection Interface is needed per shade and is dry contact closure only operation and is an expensive proposition for the integration of many shades.
As of April 2012, Hunter Douglas does not have any plans to make or offer a simple interface module to make this reliable battery operated system capable of being easily integrated with many popular Automation Systems available.
-Some of the questions we receive about the Battery operated system:
1) Can they be integrated? Clumsily...Yes with a Connection Interface or RF Adapter (see above for links to purchase). If you read the AV forums you will find that very proficient electrical engineering Guru's have ripped apart wall switches and remotes and made their own interface, but for the average Joe Integrator this is not a option that will be profitable.
2) Are they Z-Wave / Zigbee Compatible? No
3) Is the IR code learn-able? No or not reliably...some AV wizards have a workarounds but for the average AV integrator who wants to get in and out and on to the next job...NO
4) Can they be controlled with RS232-RS485? No
5) Can I Pre-Wire for them instead of using battery packs? Yes, using 16/2 CL2 rated wire for wire runs up to 150Ft. Some motors are 12V DC and some are 18V DC so you will need to purchase the correct transformer for the appropriate shade.
6) Can I retrofit the motor with another motor that is "Integration Friendly"? Yes...Somfy makes motors that can be retrofitted with most of the Hunter Douglas shade line and the motors can be integrated into most Home Automation Systems.
The Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Hardwired Lift System can be integrated into many current Home Automation Systems with associated control components. This system requires wiring for both motor power and control. The system uses the ESI (Electronic Solutions) RQ (Remotely Queriable) control platform which usually requires an electrician and extensive RQ programming knowledge to implement. As of January 2012, all Companies selling this system must be trained and certified by Hunter Douglas.
Most components listed below are available for the Hardwired System only and require 6-conductor modular wire for control and 14/3 with ground for powering the 110V AC motors or 16/2 CL2 in wall rated wire for low voltage motors.
Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Wall Switch with Automation
Home automation window coverings can operate with a remote control, a touch panel or even light sensors. In addition, operation can be programmed to raise and lower the window coverings at certain times of the day, on different days of the week.
Home automation systems can easily accommodate motor-only window coverings and Hard-Wired systems from Hunter Douglas. Our products are very versatile in adapting to a variety of home automation control sources.
Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0
Allows 3rd party integration of home control systems such as Crestron, AMX, Lutron, Lite Touch or PC computer systems to access and control Platinum Technology Hardwired blind installations via RS-232 communication. Up to 7 Platiunum wall switches can be controlled using a single R2D7 RS232 serial bridge.
R2D7 Serial Bridge
Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Part#: PCN2170000229 The Hunter Douglas Dry-Contact Harness Kit (PCN 2170000229) is a connector with five attached wires that is designed to communicate dry-contact closure information between the Hunter Douglas Platinum wall switch (PCN 2951710000 not included) and other devices. The Platinum wall switch has both dry contact inputs and outputs that can be used with advanced control systems, as well as mechanical switches or relays.

Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 Connection Interface
Will work for all:
PowerGlide 2.0 Hard-Wire was available in May 2009. This motorization enhancement allows the Luminette PowerGlide 2.0 motor to be controlled from a platinum wall switch. The motor can also be wired into any home automation system.
Luminette PowerGlide 2.0 is now home automation ready. The connection interface component provides an easy way to connect the wall switch, a home automation system, or the Platinum satellite eye.
Now consumers can choose to control their PowerGlide 2.0 sheers using a Platinum remote; the new Platinum wireless wall switch, which is essentially an RF remote in the wall; the hard-wired wall switch; or their home automation system. As you can see, PowerGlide 2.0 is now a very versatile operating system.

Hunter Douglas Duette PowerRise Retrofit Kit to Platinum Technology 2.0
PowerRise IR/RF Satellite Eye with 20" Cable
Part#: 2980000203 - 20" Wire
Platinum technology can be used to retrofit any PowerRise (TM) or PowerGlide (TM) lifting system made on or AFTER May 1, 2003.
This includes Duette, Silhouette, Vignette, Brilliance PowerRise Systems and Luminette PowerGlide Tilt & Traverse systems.
To retrofit an existing system, a new Platinum Technolgy remote, shown above, and the NEW IR/RF Satellite Eye, shown at right are added to the system. The new remote may be used to operate ALL existing PowerRise and PowerGlide window coverings. One new satellite eye per blind will be needed. This sort of retrofit is not available for horizontal blinds with the PowerTilt system.
To find out when your system was made: Remove the blind from the window. Look in or on the headrail for a white, pink or blue production sticker. Find the production date on the sticker.

Hunter Douglas Platinum Technology 2.0 RF Adapter
Hunter Douglas Part# PCN 2920860000
The Platinum RF Adapter uses current sensing technology to operate PowerRise 2.0 and PowerGlide 2.0 products. The adapter plugs into a standard 110VAC duplex wall outlet and detects AC power. The device will send out a signal to open or close the window covering based on whether or not power is present in the outlet. The RF adapter can be used in conjunction with a off-the-shelf lamp timer or switched outlet for simple operation. For Automation control, install a Z-Wave or X-10 compatable outlet to switch the outlet ON or OFF. Switching the outlet ON raises the shades, switching the outlet OFF lowers the shades.
