Operating your roller shutters or roll-up garage doors manually is in the past. The manual option remains, but nowadays roller shutters are being automated more and more. Apart from enhancing the operating comfort, electric roller shutters extend the time needed to break into a house. In combination with rigid links the shutter cannot be lifted from the outside. If you choose electric operation and you install a time switch, you can even simulate being home.
You can operate your roller shutter by an electric motor, wired or wireless.
If you choose for the wired option, each roller shutter has its own wired switch.
If you, however, opt for wireless control, you can operate your roller shutters individually or in group via a wall-mounted switch or a handheld remote control. Wall-mounted switches are battery powered and perfect for anyone worried about misplacing their remote controls. They are available in a choice of colours and frame finishes to match your interior. Handheld remote controls, however, offer more comfort and freedom as there is no need to walk around your house when you want to adjust your shutters. You can control them all from a single remote control. Remote controls are available in different types and designs.
Electric control in combination with a timer is also possible to fully automate the process so it looks like you are present even when you are not at home. If these timers are used efficiently, they can help you to reduce your energy costs.
You can also operate your roller shutter via an existing home automation system. No matter where you are in the world, you can operate your roller shutters via the internet or via an app on your tablet or smartphone.
