Smart Home roller shutter control: the compact switch actuators are so practical
A roller shutter control makes your roller shutters and blinds smart and makes your life easier. Roller shutters and blinds are an absolute must for many people because they have several significant tasks in a home. With the help of roller shutters and venetian blinds, you can not only reliably darken your rooms and thus ensure a restful sleep, but you can also protect yourself from prying eyes and create privacy in no time at all. In addition, roller shutters and venetian blinds help to keep your home pleasantly cool when outside temperatures are high.
But roller shutters and venetian blinds also have an important function in terms of security. If you leave window coverings down for a longer period, it gives the impression that you are not at home, which in turn can attract burglars. Our tip: Equip your home with a Smart Home roller shutter control. This allows you to open and close your roller shutters and venetian blinds remotely at any time.
How does a Smart Home roller shutter control system work?
Communication between your smart shutter control and the other components of your smart home system or your smartphone takes place via radio. In most cases, the roller shutter control uses classic WLAN to send and receive signals. Thanks to the wireless connection, it is also possible to control the roller shutters and venetian blinds very easily via an app.
Retrofitting roller shutter control: (How) is that possible?
Retrofitting a smart roller shutter control is possible without any problems in many cases. The only prerequisite is usually that your existing equipment is an electric roller shutter with a tubular motor.
To make the roller shutter smart, the roller shutter switch is simply mounted in the flush-mounted unit and wired to the tubular motor. This means that you do not have to replace the motor to use the smart roller shutter control. Note: If you carry out the installation yourself, you should always turn off the power in your home beforehand. After installation, the module is configured using the manufacturer's own smartphone app before you can finally put it into operation.
These functions are offered by a smart roller shutter control
A Smart Home roller shutter control system has some extremely practical advantages. Especially when you couple the control module with other Smart Home components, the strengths come into their own. In this case, you can create individual profiles and have your roller shutters and venetian blinds open or close depending on certain factors - completely automatically. Linking your smart roller shutter control with a sun sensor is particularly obvious. By linking both modules, you can arrange for the roller shutter to close automatically whenever the sensor registers a certain brightness value. Smart shutter switches can also interact with temperature sensors in a similar way. If a previously defined temperature is exceeded, the blinds automatically go down.
These routines can be configured via the manufacturer's own app, which you can download to your smartphone free of charge. Using the application, you can also lower your blinds remotely, for example, to simulate your presence and protect yourself against potential burglars. By the way: Control via voice assistant is also possible with many models.
What should you look for when buying?
If you plan to integrate your smart control modules into an existing smart home system, you should make sure that the corresponding devices are compatible. Often, Smart Home switches for roller shutters and blinds can only be coupled with other modules if both components are made by the same manufacturer.
In addition, you should check before buying whether your roller shutter can be equipped with a smart roller shutter switch at all. You will find the relevant information in the item description.
