The motor is conveniently installed inside the roller tube of the awning, so you will hardly notice it. If outfitted with a Manual Override, you can easily retract the awning if the electricity is cut off. While you may want to hire an electrician to "hardwire" multiple rolling screens or awnings to your house electrical system, a single retractable awning can be fitted with a plug in cord that simply plugs into an available outlet on your deck. With The plug in cords, there is no need for an electrician. In addition, the optional wind or sun sensors are battery operated and wirefree.

Read More

A simple press of a button on the remote control or wireless wall switch sends out a radio wave signal to move any motorized interior or exterior window coverings with ease. There is no need to point or aim the remote, because RTS is omnidirectional and operates within a range of up to 65 feet. And just like a garage door opener, the radio waves travel through walls, making control of motorized products easier than ever.
