The AstroTec-868 control from Elero’s ProLine range will ensure efficient opening and closing times of automated roller shutters and venetian blinds.

Aside from automatically recognising any changes in daylight saving time, the AstroTec also offers a holiday programme and programmable intermediate, ventilation and tilting positions. These programmes can be set to an individual shutter or blind or to a group.

The holiday security feature is an integrated random generator which, if activated, varies the opening and closing times of the shutters or blinds over a seven-day cycle. “Even the most persistent burglar, who watches a property over a number of days, would be uncertain whether the occupants were at home or on holiday,” commented Paul Connor, managing director of Elero UK.

The AstroTec’s functions can be amplified on roller shutters with the addition of the Lumo sun and twilight sensor. Discreetly attached to a windowpane using a tiny suction cup, this sensor ensures that when there is strong sunlight, the shutter is closed to the height at which the sensor is attached thereby protecting home furnishings from ultraviolet light.

“Thanks to their considered modular construction and the available variety of device types, there is virtually no limit to the applications and functions possible”, added Paul.
