Somfy Systems Inc., a Dayton, N.J.-based manufacturer of radio-controlled motors for interior and exterior window coverings, has introduced a solar-powered combination rain and sun sensor.
Featured this week at IFAI Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Calif., the Ondeis™ WireFree RTS Rain and Sun Sensor is completely wireless and automatically operates motorized applications based on selected weather conditions with 6 available modes. It uses optical rain-sensing technology to measure rainfall, sending an RTS command when rainfall exceeds the user-selected threshold. It also uses a sun-level sensor that sends an RTS command when sunlight exceeds the user-selected threshold.
The sensor is compatible with Radio Technology Somfy® motorized exterior products, including awnings, rolling shutters and screens.
