Breezway Communications Manager Liz Creagh recommends a new control unit and an app that together help homeowners programme their Powerlouvre windows to open and cool the house naturally at a specified time.

Homeowners can combine the Powerlouvre Apptivate control unit in their home and the Powerlouvre app on their smartphones to remotely control the operation of their power louvre windows before entering the home, or when relaxing after dinner on the couch or from any location within range.

For instance, the Powerlouvre windows can be opened to welcome cooling breezes on a warm autumn evening before going off to sleep, with the windows programmed to close automatically when the room reaches a comfortable temperature so that there’s no need to get out of bed.

The Powerlouvre Apptivate control unit and Powerlouvre app function as an effective home automation system without an expensive price tag.

Key features of the Powerlouvre Apptivate control unit include touch sensitive wall switch; single and dual channel models available; and automatic response to temperature and timer settings. The Powerlouvre app is freely downloadable from the App Store or Google Play.
