SHADE PRODUCT ACCESSORIES
A Variety of Accessories and Options to Customize Your Shade Products and Simplify Your Life
Control Your Awnings or Shades With a Smartphone
With MyLink, it's easy to stay in control and operate your motorized shade products whether you're at home or out running errands. No more worries about forgetting to retract your products into their protective cassette before you leave. Just open the app while you're out and extend your awning or exterior shades so they start cooling off your outdoor space or home before you're ready to relax.
With mylink you can:
Maximize energy savings, privacy and UV protection with the push of a button, even when you're not at home
Schedule when your awning opens and closes
Control up to five individual motorized applications or five groups of motorized applications
Sun & Rain Sensor
Your Awning, Canopy or Exterior Solar Shades will automatically operate if they detect 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 product 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, canopy, or exterior shades will retract so they are not damaged. By automatically extending when the sun is shining, they will help you save on energy costs by keeping your home's interior cooler.
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
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 bar of your awning and senses when wind starts to pick up. It allows for peace of mind that your awning will be safe in windy conditions, even when you're not at home to close it.
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 light level. Your light kit is controlled with the same device that you control your awning and is compatible with mylink. It can either be built into the awning before installation or you can add it onto an existing awning.
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 provide additional protection from the sun.
Available in either screen or acrylic fabric, it will help you enjoy your deck or patio without the harsh glare of the evening sun.
Privacy and additional sun protection for your Canopy.
Add optional side curtains on retractable canopies and pergola canopies on any or all sides – in a variety of fabrics and color choices.
You may choose to put them on just one side of your canopy or pergola to help block the sun when it's lower in the sky, or maybe you want them on every side to better enclose the area and protect your privacy.
Offering convenience for your shade products.
A variety of motor options are available for your shade products. Motorized awnings, canopies and shades are easy to operate with remote control or wall switch. Systems that sense sun and wind will extend or retract your awning automatically.
The motorized options vary depending on the size and style of the product you select. Some options incur additional cost.
