With the help of the WMS WebControl app awnings can be operated easily and comfortably via smartphone or other mobile end devices. The user interface makes a neat and clearly structured impression. The functions are reduced to the essentials and allow for controlling the awnings and setting the desired curtain position. Firstly, the area is selected on the left of the display, for instance the living room or the patio. Then the corresponding existing units with WMS receivers such as roller shutters, external Venetian blinds or patio awnings are shown on the right. Each integrated system can be operated individually within the range of the WLAN network.
