New app launched
Morley Glass and Glazing has developed a new app with home integration company Loxone, allowing users to open and close their motorised integral blinds from a tablet or smartphone.
By integrating Morley Glass and Glazing’s fully electronic MB System Uni-Blinds into the Loxone app, blinds can now be operated using WiFi-connected devices from anywhere in the world. The app is available for immediate installation into MB Systems, including retrofitting into previous projects.
Ian Short, Morley Glass and Glazing’s managing director, said: “We were inundated with requests from customers for a way to operate their integral blinds remotely using an app. We worked closely with DV Smarthomes in association with Loxone to make sure the final product not only offers all the features we have been asked for, but a lot more besides.”
Using the app, blinds can be programmed to open and close at set times of the day, especially useful when homeowners are on holiday, and they can even be linked via a subscription service to temperature controls, allowing them to close automatically before rooms get too hot.
The app can also be integrated into home automation systems via the Loxone Miniserver, offering up to 30 extensions to integrate various domestic applications such as lighting, heating, safety and security, energy management, and entertainment systems.
