4 Ways WiFi Roller Shutters can Enhance Everyday Life

Roller shutters have been an invaluable, popular home addition for many years now, offering numerous benefits that work to create the ideal environment for you and your family. With the creation of WiFi shutters, their convenience and security has been taken to the next level. 

Find out more about the benefits of shutters in general, what exactly WiFi roller shutters are and how this additional method of WiFi operation can make your life better. 

5 Benefits Of Roller Shutters

1. Security

Roller shutters are fitted securely over windows or doors to cover these vulnerable entrances of the home and provide an additional, durable layer. This acts as protection against intruders, criminals, weather damage or damage from debris. 

2. Energy efficiency

As an added layer of insulation over windows with polyurethane foam, it is much easier to maintain a comfortable temperature within the home. With less reliance on heating or cooling, this can save on the amount of energy used by your household and the cost of your energy bills. 

3. Privacy

As a reliable barrier between your home and the outside world, you can enjoy everyday life with the knowledge that you are out of sight. 

4. Noise reduction

Insulated shutters are not only able to reduce heat transfer, but can also reduce outside noise from entering the home. This can mean a more peaceful sleep, and a quieter home environment. 

5. Light control

Shutters allow you to gain control of the amount of light that enters your home. Let the daylight stream through fully opened shutters or close the shutters for perfect TV viewing at any time of day. 

What are WiFi roller shutters?

Traditionally, shutters have been manually operated via a crank lever. As other forms of technology have been developed, the convenience of shutter operation has also improved greatly. From this manual crank there are now switches, buttons, roller shutter remote controls and even smartphone apps that allow you to operate the shutters through a smart home system. 

WiFi-controlled roller shutters are the latest operation method and offer ten times the convenience and peace of mind. These are a type of shutter that can be operated with a roller shutter WiFi controller remotely through a smartphone app, or other internet-connected device, to allow you to control the shutters from anywhere that has an internet connection. 

4 Benefits Of WiFi Roller Shutters Convenience

1. Convenience

One of the most significant benefits of WiFi shutters is their unmatched everyday convenience. As you’re able to operate them from anywhere, 

2. Never fret about forgetting

How often do you leave the house for the evening and then worry that you’ve forgotten to close the shutters? Maybe you’ve even had to turn around and head back home to check? These shutters can absolutely demolish this anxiety, as you are able to check at any time while you’re out whether they’re shut or not, and close them from afar if needed. 

3. Timed shutter operation

Another great convenience of these shutters is the ability to program set times during the day for them to open or close. This means that you don’t have to worry about opening or closing them yourself, or even think about them at all, and can rest assured that your home is safe. 

4. Enhanced home safety while away

Timing your shutters or enjoying the ability to operate them from afar means that you can guarantee home safety no matter where you are in the world. This is especially helpful if you are on holiday. Alongside this, home safety is enhanced as the changing shutter placement can also make it look as though someone is home when they aren’t, deterring intruders in this way.
