How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?

The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. This technology can be incorporated into most home automation and z-wave systems.

Motorized shutters and screens with gear override should be used in case of a power outage. They may also prove ideal for creating emergency exits.
