Below are the most common automatic options we offer with our awnings at extra cost. A combination of devices can be used in conjunction with one another depending on your demands and budget.

Combined Sun & Wind Sensor

Combined Sun & Wind Sensor

This sensor controls provides full automation to your awning. It will extend the blind when the sun levels reach your desired threshold and will retract it if the sun goes in or the wind picks up. This item requires hard wiring to both the awning and a power supply.

Wireless Sun Only Sensor

Wireless Sun Only Sensor

A solar powered sun sensor for controlling your Somfy powered awning, providing automatic sun protection. This item requires no additional wiring as it communicates with the awning via radio, meaning it can be installed in the most ideal place possible. For example, we have previously installed one on a chimney stack of a bungalow for maximum exposure to the sun. This can be used in conjunction with a separate wind sensor if so desired.

Wireless Wind Only Sensor

Wireless Wind Only Sensor

This sensor mounts wirelessly to the front of the awning and will safely retract the blind  it if it detects excessive movement caused by windy conditions. This unit requires a battery. This can be used in conjunction with a separate sun sensor if so desired.

Wired Wind Only Sensor

Wired Wind Only Sensor

Similar to the above sensor minus the sun feature.  This will retract the awning when wind levels are detected to be above the safe threshold.  This item requires hard wiring to both the awning and a power supply. This can be used in conjunction with a separate sun sensor if so desired.

Day/Night Timer

Day/Night Timer

Pre-program your awning to open or retract at set times of the day.
