What is the difference between a wired and a radio installation?
In a wired installation, the command to the motor is sent via electric cables. In the radio system, the commands are transmitters via radio waves without the need for electric wires between the motor and the user interface. The control is then mobile which will allow you to control your motorized products from a few meters. The installation is faster with radio motors since there is no need for a wired switch, preventing any installation damage to your walls.

Can I change my wired motor to radio?
Yes, all you need is to add an external radio receiver to the motor.

Is it possible to control simultaneously different motors?
Yes you can. You can use multi-channel transmitters or relays for a central command (wired installation).

How much does a tubular motor cost?
The cost depends on many factors: size of the shutter/awning/shade, friction situation, control options... Your certified partner will give you an estimate according to your requirements.
