At home you want to feel secure and free from any major concerns. This is why your automated roller shutters not only provide convenience, but also improve your safety. As soon as it gets dark all you have to do is press the switch or use your remote control – and all your roller shutters, from the cellar up to the attic, will reliably move down into the closed position. Alternatively, and even more simply: set up this operation on a timer with Astro function or the CentralControl central house control system. Then your roller shutters will know for themselves when it is time to close and when to open again in the morning.
Regardless of which system you choose, the good thing about it is that if anything impedes the roller shutters' downward movement – an abandoned toy or a flower pot, for instance – the shutters will stop automatically and in good time before either the object or the roller shutter itself can be damaged. This is taken care of by the sensitive obstruction detection system with which your Becker drives are equipped.
You can also remain relaxed if you're out later than expected in the evening, either because you have to work late or want to meet up with friends. Thanks to the timer, you can rest assured that your roller shutters will do their job at the very moment for which they have been programmed, thus making life difficult for any potential burglar.
Effective protection against burglary
But what if you're away for a longer period, on a business trip or summer holiday for instance. Everyone knows that uneasy feeling that can suddenly creep up on you: is everything really OK back home? However, when you have automated roller shutters you can be sure that there is no cause for concern.
Firstly, the timer continues opening and closing the roller shutters automatically according to the usual pattern, thereby creating the illusion that you are still in residence. And secondly, if someone should nonetheless start tampering with a window, they won't get far. The glass breakage sensor will close the roller shutters straight away if the windowpane is smashed – and, in fact, even if the sensor detects powerful vibrations around the window area. Even if a burglar attempts to push the roller shutters up, the drives will again scupper their plans. The built-in anti-lifting device, which is additionally assisted by a powerfully resistant electromagnetic brake, will make sure of that.
Everything's under control even when you're not at home
