Motorized, Automatic Electric Awnings
For Home or Commercial Applications
Motorizing retractable awnings or drop shades provides tremendous convenience and trouble-free operation. A basic installation for motorization may use an optional RTS cord that connects to the motor and is the proper length to plug into the nearest wall receptacle. You will not have to hardwire the motor. The awning will then be operated using a Decoflex Wire-Free Control, an IR 1 Remote Control or Tellis 1 Remote Control.

Automation is available from simple timers to wind sensors to sun- and wind-sensor combinations. The new RTS motors from Somfy are pre-configured for radio-control operation using an RTS wall-mount switch, wall-mount Chronis Timer control, Tellis hand-held remote controller, Tellis Soliris hand-held remote for Sun and Wind. These controllers are available as single, group or multiple-awning controllers. Learn more about Somfy Motors, Wind Sensors, Sun Sensors and Remote Controls.
Automatic sun control allows light or lack of light to open and close your awning or window shade. Sun and Wind sensors open your electric awning with light and closes without light. If wind exceeds a preset speed, the automatic electric awning retracts. What could be more trouble free?
