Blinds / shadows commands inverted?

Cupertino, September 7, 2019

Super excited to get Hunter Douglas Powerview blinds.

But when I ask Siri to open the shadows, it closes them. And the other way around.

I can see how this happens, because if the shadows were a rolling style, the engine would pull up all the cord ... but on blinds, if pulling the cord up, they would essentially shut down the blinds. And allowing the cord all the way down lets out some light again. At "50%" is when we humans would consider the blinds "open".

Any ideas on how to adjust Siri or Powerview's understanding of the commands?
