How many shutters or screens can I operate with one switch?
Special switches can operate up to two shutters. Somfy’s RTS or IGC technology could, virtually, operate an unlimited number of shutters with only a single switch! The technology could also be modified to control individual or groups of motors from multiple locations. Lastly, we can incorporate the technology into most home automation and z-wave systems.
When should I use a Motor with Gear Override?
If power is lost, a motorized shutter or screen with gear override can be manually opened and retracted. 
This is a good option for areas prone to frequent power outages. Motorized shutters with a gear override option are recommended and sometimes required for any opening that may be used as an emergency exit.
