Window Opener

ACK4 Window Opener on a PVC window

Automatic window openers were design to meet the need of inaccessible windows that are out of reach such as skylights on roofs.  Using a wireless remote to activate the window opener we can open and close the window at ease.  For people with a mobility restriction window openers can give independence to control ventilation in their living space. The ACK4 Window Opener is suitable for aluminium and timber windows.  It has an anti-crush control board to prevent trapped fingers.  To control the window, you can either use a wall switch, an infrared remote control or a 433 Mhz radio control transmitter. The window actuator with remote costs about £240.

Using a Broadlink RM Pro could make a window opener become part of your smart home setup and hence then possibly voice controlled.
