You can operate your awning manually with a crank rod, or by a Somfy motor if you prefer. These state-of-the-art control solutions eliminate the need for wiring between the motor and the operating switch, and have the limit positions set through the radio switch, rather than on the motor.
One switch can control more than one awning and one awning can be controlled by more than one switch. As standard, all motors are factory fitted with a 2.5metre long cable, but Luxaflex can also fit either 5m or 10m cables if at no extra cost if needed. Balck 2.5m and 5m cables are also UV-protected.
The awning can be controlled from up to 200m away using the remote control handset. There's even a shockproof, water-resistant handset that doesn't mind being left out in the occasional shower.
Having an awning moving in and out automatically means that it looks as though there's someone at home, even when you may be on holiday. With a Somfy light and wind sensor, the awning will automatically extend when there's bright sunshine, and so protect carpets and soft furnishings from bleaching, and plants from drying out. If there's the threat of strong winds, the awning will automatically close for safety.
