environmental benefits

Dynamic sunrise/sunset function

HOME_half width_PRODUCTSUPPORT_iphone_sunset timer

Set up routines to control your smart shades at sunrise and sunset and Pulse 2 Hub will synchronise with your time zone, dynamically shifting the movement of your shades around your local daylight hours.
Waking up with natural daylight enhances our sleep/wake cycle and eliminates alarm devices, offering a more natural way to live. Your body will dictate when it’s time to start the day and in turn ensure a goods nights sleep.
Using daylight also aids to reduce energy consumption; keep your lights switched off and control how much light enters your home all year round to maintain optimal temperature control.
