6 Ways Our Roller Shutters Use Innovative Technology

Security Plus Shutters, Doors & Blinds are industry leaders and have been the first to introduce the latest technology for the last 29 years. From obstacle detection motors to phone apps, we have the latest ways to operate your shutters.

Here are 6 ways that our roller shutters stand out from the rest

1. Obstacle detection motors

With MOTO motors, these shutters can now use obstacle detection technology. With this technology, if a window, door, outdoor furniture or kids toys are in the way, it will gently touch it and pause – avoiding damage to your shutters, windows or furniture.

2. Manual Override Motors

These motors are mandatory for fire rated automated shutters, and can be operated by a switch on the wall or by remote control. In fire-prone areas the shutter is kept closed to minimize heat entering the home, usually well after power has been disrupted. When the danger has passed the shutter can be opened manually with a crank handle.

3. Control via phone app

With the Somfy Connexoon Windows RTS Phone App, you can control your motorised window furnishings with the touch of a screen. This allows you to control your roller shutters even when you’re not home. Already left the house and forgot to close your shutters? Just use your app.

4. Automated Motors with multiple control options

Your roller shutters can be operated a variety of ways, all designed to meet your needs. You can have a switch on the wall and operate each shutter individually or have one remote to open and close some or all shutters at once. We also offer multi remote per room operation or a key ring remote to open your shutters as you approach your house.

5. Spring Operated with Lockable Bottom Bar or Slat Lock for added security

Need to install roller shutters but there’s no power in the shed? A spring-operated roller shutter can be your answer.

6. 12V Motors

Any shutter covering the main exit door should have a 12V Motor or UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), so you can ALWAYS operate the shutter and exit your house – with or without power.

All SP Motors are Australian Certified and carry the Tick of Approval logo proving that quality and peace of mind is guaranteed. Security Plus Shutters, Doors & Blinds has over 29 years of experience in the industry, so it is no surprise that we offer the best technology along with our fine-tuned quality products and service. You can rely on us for the most contemporary window furnishing solutions.
