Why Choose SolarLinc?
SolarLinc is a reliable, high-performing touchless automated shading system that adapts to the building users' shade control needs.
The wireless daylight sensor monitors external conditions to mitigate glare while the occupancy sensor monitors the room occupancy state to provide energy conservation. The sensors connect wirelessly to the MechoNet Wireless Controller that mounts out of sight. A wireless Mechoshade wall switch is optional to override controls.
Easy, flexible automated window shade installation
The MechoNet Wireless Controller for SolarLinc connects directly to the solar shade motors. Occupancy and daylight control sensors connect wirelessly to the controller. Wireless connection creates simplified installation and flexible customization for evolving room or layout enhancements.
