Adding a retractable awning to your deck, porch, or patio increases the value of your home and allows you to enjoy your outdoor spaces in most kinds of weather. When windy weather strikes, though, it can feel a bit nerve-wracking to keep your retractable awning open. Awnings left open can act as sails in the wind, and on particularly windy days, they may become damaged by strong gusts.
If you have a motorized retractable awning, though, rather than a manually operated one, you can have peace of mind thanks to a nifty little gadget called a Wireless Wind Sensor. Based on settings that you choose, the wind sensor monitors the effect of the wind on your retractable awning and closes it automatically when necessary. So, when you are away from home or fully engrossed in at-home projects, the Wireless Wind Sensor will take care of your motorized retractable awning should the weather take a turn for the worse.
