With the integrated, water-resistant control panel, one touch is all it takes to extend, retract, and lock your awning.
Powered by a 12V motor, this “smart” RV accessory is compatible with Solera awnings and other leading awning brands on the market today.* The best part about this kit is that it gives you the freedom to upgrade your awning even further with optional add-on accessories. From wind-sensing technology to motion-detecting security sensors — you can choose how or when to take your awning to the next level, anytime you want.
Perfect for days you’re out and about, away from your campsite, the optional Wind Sensor (sold separately), can be programmed to retract your awning at various wind speeds, so your RV’s awning equipment doesn’t get damaged while you’re gone.
Infrared Security Sensor.
This easy to install sensor is programmed to illuminate your awning’s lighting when body heat or motion is detected outside of your RV — helping to deter unwanted visitors or animals from wandering around your rig at night.
