4 great reasons to choose electric patio awnings

Cool interiors

A retractable awning ensures that in the summer months, your furniture and plants can be protected from the sun it helps your house to stay cool.

Control at a distance

If the terrace terrace awning is left open when you go out and bad weather ensues, it won’t be necessary to return home to close it when you can do so from your smartphone with a single tap of the screen.

Voice activation

No need to get up, simply vocalise your request for the patio awning to be opened or closed and let your smart speaker do the rest. You can program various scene settings to create the perfect ambience to suit any occasion or weather condition.

Sun sensor for continuous comfort

When the sun gets too hot, your electric awning’s sun sensor will adapt by opening or closing to maintain the required temperature on your terrace, ensuring continuous comfort however hot it gets outside.

3 excellent reasons for having automated patios, conservatories or sunrooms

Voice command functionality

Voice command systems ensure your electric shutters can be activated and controlled with great ease and simplicity.

Maintain comfort

Sensors ensure your conservatory is always at the best temperature possible, whatever the time of year, by opening the blinds to let the heat of the sun in on cold winter days or closing them to prevent too much heat, especially in the summer months.

Increased home security

An automated conservatory with a built-in alarm system, plus electric shutters, can act as a deterrent against any would-be burglar. A smart system significantly reduces the risk of any break-in attempt, and in the event of unauthorised access the alarm is duly raised!
