Zipscreen Control options

Motorised Control

Zipscreen offers sophisticated motorisation control that seamlessly integrates with any shade configuration.

Specifically engineered for our external shades, the Automate™ suite unlocks a whole new shade experience. With intuitive motors that avoid damage with impact detection, your shades gently move to position at the touch of a button.

Automate remote controls provide an easy-to-use interface. Eliminate the need for manual shade control and enjoy the comfort of remote opening, closing, and locking (when paired).

Smart Home Integration

Connect your motorised Zipscreen to your home’s Wi-Fi network and unlock a whole new era of smart control options with Automate's Pulse 2.

The Pulse 2 establishes a bridge between your external shades and the Automate smart suite, allowing you to take advantage of App control, voice control and automation. Integrating directly with the world’s leading IoT platforms and assistants, Automate motors allow you to use Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple Homekit and Siri to control your shades with natural voice commands. Timed routines adjust your shades based on your needs, regardless of your location.

Spring Control

Our spring control features a simple and natural manual movement. Six different spring sizes are available to align with the size of your shade. These springs are used to keep the bottom bar of the system completely balanced and tensioned. 

Simply glide the Zipscreen shade by hand and it will move and balance to your chosen height. For extended reach and larger installations our Spring Handle allows you to pull and push the shade from fully open to closed in one effortless motion (available end of April 2023). 

Crank Control

A modernised take on a classic control type, Zipscreen's Crank Control operates your shade with just a few quick twists. The Crank is designed to move your shade up and down with minimal effort, eliminating the need to bend down or reach up. With a removable handle and customisable colours, the crank can be installed in a position that’s both comfortable and discrete.
