Arens Smart Switch Controller

The Arens Smart Switch controller is ideal if you require a manual open and close option for high level windows in your building or room.

Integration with other building systems is possible and allows for high level windows to be opened and closed as these systems see fit. This provides for a degree of control over the natural ventilation system that may not exist if you are solely relying on occupants to operate these windows. It is compatible with the complete range of Arens Electric Chain Winders and Linear Actuators.

  • May be configured to provide either momentary switching for partial operation or latch switching for one-touch operation

The Smart Switch is mounted in a Clipsal Series 2000 flush switch plate enabling easy mounting to interior walls.
