Hunter Douglas PowerView Gen 3 Range / Mount options


Recommended Posts

Curious if anyone has any guidance on the range for the HD PowerView Gen 3 Pro gateway - it looks like the Pro unit can handle up to 30 shades, and is communicating with the shades using bluetooth low energy (BLE).  Also looks like it can run using POE - wondering if there's a way to mount these, or if they have to sit on a counter / shelf somewhere.  Also wondering what type of real-world range can you get from one of these?  The shading guy is used to adding a remote to each shade, and not super familiar with integrating all of this with Control4 - wondering if there's someone on here with some experience that can chime in.

No specific experience to the Gen3 numerous on V2, but in general integration works fine: Bridge driver is 3rd party but free (paid for by HD): https://drivercentral.io/platforms/control4-drivers/blinds-shades/hunterdouglas-powerview-gen3/

You'll have full % feedback and control over valens, black-out and main separate control and so on. Just don't use the remotes (or the app)once integration is done.

Issue has never been the driver (since Cinedev made it) - it's more reliability between bridge(s) and shades: Stay away from the repeaters, use more than one bridge if needed. Reliable even over WiFi that way.
