Home Automation

Home automation is an exciting development in the awnings and shading industry. Imagine a day when you could have your retractable awnings or solar screens drop down when the temperature reaches a certain threshold, or roll up when it gets too cold. Your home would always be at the right temperature when you get home. Well, that day is here!

Technology has advanced at such a rapid pace that many of these luxuries are now possible. In a few years, they could even be the norm for most homes.

Keep up with the latest news and ideas in home temperature control and general home automation advances here.
