Convenient Operation

Smart shades that reduce your effort

Outdoor Shades

Automate® motors offer a reduction in time and effort normally required for the operation of outdoor shades. Using a crank gear to open and close your outdoor shades is a traditional control that requires significant physical effort, whereas motorising your outdoor shades can remove the effort and give you back the valuable time to enjoy your outdoor space.

Unique to Automate, the FT Series of motors combined with the Automate Push5 remote control and Rollease Acmeda’s locking devices enables you to create a smart and sophisticated Zipscreen outdoor shading system. Simply activate the sequence with your Push5 remote, to close and lock the shade while tensioning the fabric.
