Rain & Sun Sensors
Your awning will automatically operate when it detects sun or rain
The rain and sun sensor quickly responds to changes in weather to create a more comfortable outdoor living space. With six available modes based on personalized weather conditions, your awning will automatically extend when sunny or retract when rainy. If you need to run out for a few minutes and an unexpected rainstorm blows in, your awning will retract on its own so it is not damaged. By automatically extending itself when the sun is detected, your awning will help keep your home's interior cooler so you can save money on energy costs.
Other benefits include
solar-powered operation means no wires or electricity
saves energy by reducing heat gain/loss depending on seasonal preferences
protect outdoor furniture from the sun's damaging rays
LED Light Kit
Ambient light for your deck or patio
With the dimmable LED light kit, you can spend more time on your deck or patio enjoying the outdoors into the night. The light kit seamlessly and easily integrates into the awning's arms and is available in warm or cool white. Choose between twelve levels of brightness and set your preferred lighting level. Your light kit is controlled with the same device that you control your awning and is compatible with MyLink.The lights can either be built into the awning before installation or you can add it onto an existing awning. The light kit is available for the Estate Model, Estate Slim-Fit Model, Estate XLP Model, or the Eko Model.
Your awning will automatically retract when it detects wind
Strong winds can damage an awning, but with the wind sensor, your awning will automatically retract into its protective cassette when wind is detected. The wind sensor attaches to the front profile of your awning to sense when wind starts to pick up. It allows for peace of mind that you awning will be safe in windy conditions, even when you're not at home to close it.
Additional sun and glare protection
A vario valance is a retractable shade option that attaches to the front bar of your awning and drops vertically to add privacy and sun protection. Available in either screen or acrylic fabric, it will help you enjoy your deck or patio without the harsh glare of the evening sun.
