Awning Accessories / Add Ons
Your Awning will automatically retract when it detects wind.
Strong winds can damage an awning, but with the wind sensor, your awning will automatically retract into its protective cassette when wind is detected. The wind sensor attaches to the front bar of your awning and senses when wind starts to pick up. It allows for peace of mind that your awning will be safe in windy conditions, even when you’re not at home to close it.
LED LIGHT KIT
Ambient light for your deck or patio.
With the dimmable LED light kit, you can spend more time on your deck or patio enjoying the outdoors into the night. The light kit seamlessly and easily integrates into the awning’s arms and is available in warm or cool white.
Choose between twelve levels of brightness and set your preferred light level. Your light kit is controlled with the same device that you control your awning and is compatible with mylink. It can either be built into the awning before installation or you can add it onto an existing awning.
