Motorized Or Fully Automated System

Using the same quality components and features as the manual crank roll down patio shade from above, the motorized version goes a step further by providing the convenience of operating the shade with either a wall switch or a remote control. One switch is used for each roll down shade, but one remote control can work up to 5 shades.

For fully automated roll down patio shades, add a sun/wind sensor. Remote control motors are required for this option so the sensor can talk to the shade motor and tell it what to do. This takes the worry out of ensuring the shades are up when unsupervised. When the sun hits the sensor, the shade goes down. However, if the wind kicks up, the sensor will retract the shade to protect your investment. When the wind subsides, the sensor will drop the shade again. After the sun passes the affected area, the sensor will then retract the shade. Of course, if you want the shade down after the sun has passed, you may simply override the sun/wind sensor with the remote control.
