Extending an awning during peak sunlight reduces heat and controls light and UV rays, even in winter or cloudy days – and targeting a specific period of time can improve energy efficiency.
Retractable awnings can move on a smooth and natural cycle. Timers extend and retract awnings on a pre-defined schedule. Sensors respond to environmental conditions like light levels. Timers operate retractable awnings on a personal schedule, opening or closing based on the schedule of your home or business.
Timers are mounted on a wall, similar to a programmable thermostat, and communicate with any RF-enabled devices. A single timer can control a single retractable awning, several awnings, or even other RF devices, such as security lights. (The highest end timer can handle up to 40 different devices.)
Using timers can emulate a normal routine through schedules. The schedule simply sets the time for the awning to extend and to retract.
RetractableAwnings.com has three different types of timer:
Schedules can be set to respond in tandem with sun sensors , to be random (to make it appear people are home), or to have different weekday and weekend schedules. Any schedule can be deactivated and then brought back online later, and a manual schedule can be used in its place. Schedules bring flexibility.
Timers can be used with any wireless motorized retractable awning.
