Easy, Automatic Blinds: Via app, switch or voice command

It's not much work to raise or lower a blind or shutter. Not in a small house or apartment, at least. It's a bit different if you have a larger property and especially if you're older or have limited physical mobility. That's why intelligent home automation with automatic blinds offers a convenient option to handle these tasks for you.

Thrice worthwhile: More comfort, security & less energy spent

Automatic blinds go far beyond being just a fancy gimmick. It basically simplifies a rather tedious chore, but it does far more than that.

For example, when on holiday you can simulate your presence by continuing to open and close your shutters. This is a great way of deterring potential burglar. And of course, it can help to regulate the temperature in summertime and ensure you’re not wasting precious energy. During the night, closed blinds can ensure optimal insulation.

Automatic blinds mean your smart home thinks for you

Electronic blind systems are as varied as their possibilities. Some automated solutions are connected with other technical components. This example can be seen in the sensors that record solar radiation, causing awnings, shutters and blinds to automatically extend or relapse depending on the weather. Using Gira System 3000, you can also link this system to a weather station. You can even connect your automatic blinds to a weather station, which in turn records precipitation, outside temperature

and wind. That way, your blinds can determine their own optimal positioning. If a storm is brewing on the horizon, they’ll pre-emptively retract to safety.

Timers can also be handy, especially if you want to set different times during the week. Gira System 3000 has an integrated memory and astro function. Additionally, it can switch between summer and winter time.
