Sun protection

Automating sun protection systems.

A matter of convenience, not only in the summer. Our sensors can detect when the weather is changing and when the wind is picking up.


Automatic shade provision for sunny days.

Summer is the time of year where we’re happy to stand in someone else’s shadow for once. Or in the shade provided by awnings, shade sails, blinds or ZIP screens. Do you have this type of shading solution to turn your terrace into your home office or to keep your office and living areas cool? Good choice. Do you nevertheless find it a pain to always have to operate your sun protection system manually? If so, why not leave the hard work to Becker drives? Our products are fitted with sensors that make it really easy to automate your sun protection system depending on the weather, meaning that it will open and close when you want it to.

At any time

Your drives will hear your commands at any time, either via live operation or timer function.

[Translate to English:]

From anywhere

Our contribution to globalisation: You can control your Becker system from anywhere in the world.

Freedom from barriers

It’s great when things just happen automatically. We provide barrier-free control despite any limitations. 

Why automation?

To protect against wind and heat.

That’s right: automating a sun protection system is a matter of convenience, but this type of automation also has other completely different benefits. Sensors can detect when the weather is changing and when the wind is picking up. The Becker drives immediately roll up your awning or shade sail in order to prevent wind damage. And if the sun becomes too strong shortly afterwards, the system closes your blinds or ZIP screens automatically, meaning that it stays pleasantly cool for when you get home from work.

Thanks to the sensors and the intelligent drive, your sun protection system does exactly what you want it to – even when you’re not there.

A weather report based on sensors:

Becker sensors register various different weather conditions and initiate automation responses that adjust your sun protection system in line with wind, rain and sun. The following sensors are available:

Demanding applications. Sophisticated solutions.

Awning automation

Awnings are an indispensable feature of a lot of terraces, but they should only really be used on intense sunny days. And an awning is only a pleasure with the right automation.

Blind automation

Always the right position

Natural daylight or direct sunlight. Perfect daylight control. That’s the benefit of a blind. We’ve got the right products to make sure that your blinds are always in the right position.

Shade sail automation

A shade sail is a visual highlight of any outdoor area. It’s no accident that shade sails have been growing in popularity for the past few years; they provide shade over large areas as well as flexible adjustment options depending on the angle of the sun. But shade sails can only show off their full potential with the right automation setup.

ZIP screen automation

Whether in the office or at home: ZIP screens are gaining in popularity in new buildings thanks to their compact design and the wide range of available versions. Becker has developed the perfect drive technology for these screens, meaning that sensitive obstacle detection is a given, even with a flexible material.

Not everyone wants to install a smart home system immediately in a new build or during a renovation. If you decide against a smart home solution today for whatever reason, we will however advise you to lay the path for the future when installing a new roller shutter or sun protection drive. Make your home future-proof and give yourself, your children, or potential home-buyers the chance to easily retrofit a smart home central control system at a later date.

All drive series with our “FIT FOR SMART HOME” logo give you the opportunity to do just this. This means that you can fit products in your roller shutter or sun protection system today that will give you complete flexibility tomorrow when it comes to retrofitting smart home solutions – at no additional cost. After all, we have learned from experience that the appetite for a smart home grows once the first products are installed in your home. So it pays to make your home “FIT FOR SMART HOME” with Becker drives! At the end of the day, a smart home without a roller shutter or a sun protection system isn’t really a smart home.
