Which control is right for my roll shutter system?


For the average person, roll shutters always seem like a complicated product but it doesn’t have to be that way. With a few visual descriptions and explanations, you can be a pro at roll shutters! Here at Security Shutter Ltd., we want you to thoroughly understand roll shutters so you know what you’re investing your money in. 

In this blog, we’ll be going through the types of controls that are ideal for motorized operation security shutters. 

For the motorized operation of a roller shutter, there are two types. 


    1. Standard (STD) Motor

Somfy standard 4-wire tubular motor is an ideal choice for new construction projects where you still have access to the inside of the wall and hard-wired switch control is preferred. 

All STD Motor controls come with a 5-year warranty. 


      2. RTS Motor

With a click of a button, you can have your shutters roll up or down! Radio technology tubular Somfy Altus RTS motors enable you to control roll shutters, roll-up doors, grilles, and many other security products with a remote or through a wifi app from anywhere in the world.

All RTS Motor controls come with a 5-year warranty.
