Because many factors go into choosing the best home awning automation solution, Amaru’s team of trained consultants will guide you through all the available options based on the style of awning blinds you've chosen, motor, remote controls, power, access and budget.

Can I operate all the blinds with a single remote control?

Yes, depending on the amount of windows it is possible to operate all of the motorised window awnings around your home with the same remote control or home automation hub.

What if I don’t have 240v power near my windows?

What happens if there is a power outage?

If you live in an area prone to regular power outages, Amaru recommends our solar-powered outdoor blind motors that are not hard-wired. That way you can still operate your blinds if your mains power goes out.However.if your home experiences a blackout or the motor malfunctions, most awnings can still be operated using a manual override.

When it comes to caring for the motor, you operate it according to the manufacturer’s directions and always ensure nothing obstructs the bottom rail during operation.
