Whatever the weather, Warema's smart sun shading systems allow you to make the best of it. Thanks to individual automation, the perfect home climate can be created depending on the time of day, position of the sun and weather conditions. This saves money and protects the environment because the light and sun shading system regulate themselves perfectly in line with their surroundings. Additional safety is provided by sensors such as the weather station, which can be used to protect against storm damage. Automatic moving of the sun shading system makes it seem as though somebody is home to deter potential intruders. The practical functions and individual lighting can be controlled intuitively and conveniently.
Smart technologies mean you won't have to worry about anything: the automated sun shading system keeps the rooms pleasantly cool in summer and directs light and heat inside in winter. Warema has made it its mission to meet the requirements of various users with state-of-the-art sun shading solutions. At the same time, the positive effect of daylight is harnessed to boost user well-being. Warema's WMS wireless system couples state-of-the-art technology with a great design for maximum comfort and flexibility.
Above all, technology should function perfectly – something WMS users can rely on. Even distant products can be reached by transmitting commands from one receiver to another via a mesh network. The sunshade receivers not only execute the move commands, but also actively confirm them. Thanks to optical feedback, residents know that the sun shading system is in the desired position. Another practical function is the programming of individual scenarios. In the 'TV' scenario, for example, a lamp can be switched on while the sun shading system prevents glare from the window. WMS sensors offer additional functions: Wind and precipitation monitoring protect awnings and external venetian blinds from storm damage. Thanks to sun control, the rooms do not heat up in summer because the sun shading system closes automatically, even when nobody is home. Evening privacy is ensured by the dawn/dusk control, which automatically lowers the roller shutters when it’s time to switch on the lights.
WMS WebControl pro
In addition to handheld and wall-mounted transmitters, Warema's WMS WebControl pro allows the system to be controlled via an app, for even greater functionality and ease of use. With WMS WebControl pro, users carry their smart home with them wherever they go. The new iOS and Android app enables simple and intuitive control of the sun shading system and light via tablet or smartphone. WMS WebControl pro provides direct access to your smart sun shading system, no matter where you are: from the comfort of your home, in the office, in your garden or on holiday. A storm starts brewing unexpectedly? Simply retract the awnings with a touch of your finger. Are the roller shutters closed in front of the patio door? Take a quick look at the app. Want to make it look like somebody’s home in the evening? Just switch on the light and close the roller shutters.
Data is transmitted via a cloud maintained in Marktheidenfeld, Warema's headquarters. The app was developed with a modern design and clearly arranged tiles. It quickly shows the current position of the sun shading system and the slat angle of external venetian blinds. The Plus X Award jury were also impressed by the user-friendly system, presenting WMS WebControl pro with the prestigious award for 'design, operating comfort and functionality' in 2020.
WMS has numerous functions that make manual control practically unnecessary, such as a time switch, user-friendly control modes and an astro function that controls the sun shading system at dawn and dusk without additional sensors. The system can also be controlled using smart speakers such as Amazon Echo – "Alexa, retract the awning". Occupants can change the settings themselves without assistance from specialist partners. An optimised tablet app allows the contents to be displayed in landscape format and also makes WMS WebControl pro suitable for wall-mounted screens.
