Working together with the latest automation technology these motors can be accurately controlled, with an intuitive and easy to use App interface from your smartphone or tablet.
Electric Slave Motor:
A Slave, or Dummy, Motor requires a qualified electrician to connect to 240v power. It is always controlled by two fixed live wires to either a physical wall-switch or a Home Automated System. Common compatible systems include, Clipsal C-Bus, Philips Z-Wave and HAI Home Control System. This type of motor cannot be operated by remote control.
Electric RTS Motor:
These motors also require a qualified electrician to connect to 240v power however they differ from the Slave Motors by the addition of a radio receiver that is paired with a proprietary remote control for operation – they can also be connected simultaneously to a proprietary “Home Hub App” that allows operation and further functionality via mobile devices. There are two types of Electric RTS motors – Standard and Extra Quiet.
Li-ion Battery Motor:
Battery motors do not require any electrical work; instead they are charged in the same fashion as a mobile phone. Depending on the size/number of the battery cells the motors can last between 3 to 6 months before a recharge is required. There are two types of battery motor (1.1Nm or 2Nm) to accommodate for longer, heavier or more frequently used blinds. Li-ion motors utilize the same control methods as Electric RTS motors.
