Welcome to the Skylight Motor & Window Opener Website


If you already have a Z-Wave system, you may prefer our Z-Wave interfacing products. Most Zwave hubs have easy voice control integration, so if you want to use Alexa or Google Home, a Zwave hub is a good choice.

BroadLink® RF-IR Blaster Automation Hub: Need an easy phone app system? Take a look at our affordable home automation hub, operated by Android and IOS apps. This RF-IR blaster hub can learn RF radio signals for our blind motors and skylight/window openers!

It also has IFTTT event triggering (if-this-then-that) and IR learning; see how we use this for temperature sensing to open skylights and windows (we also have interfacing for Z-Wave and other home automation systems).

Turn all your old phones and tablets into powerful WiFi home automation controllers!

12v skylight openers You may have seen how handy our window blind and shade systems are, now you can use the same safe, low voltage 12v technology to open and close your skylights.

You can see our skylight opener starter kits in our online store. We also have a rain sensor kit that will automatically close your skylight when it starts to rain (with remote control).

It is a relatively simple matter to adapt these actuators to most types of skylights and windows because other than a slight angle change, it does not need to rotate a screw like other units do.

The stroke of our standard actuators is also adjustable: 4" (100mm), 8" (200mm), 10" (250mm), 12" (300mm), and you can spray paint the aluminum housing to match your decor. Please note that our skylight rain sensor actuators do not have the adjustable stroke feature as it is often required for window openers, but not skylights.

These unobtrusive 12 volt electric skylight openers can also be used for controlling vents, windows, drawers, cabinet doors and any other item you would like to move with a motorized actuator.

It can be controlled by a simple switch, or with the same remote controls that operate our motorized blind and shade systems.

If you later decide to expand your system with a home automation system, we have created an easy pathway that allows the continued use of your existing hand held remotes, preserving your investment.

Please read this article series about the BroadLink® system to find out how to control our skylight motors (with rain sensing) using a tablet or phone.

How It Works

The linear chain actuator pushes straight out from the fixed housing which lines up unobtrusively with your skylight frame, fastened in place with mounting screws. Attach the end of the chain actuator to the skylight with two screws and you're done!

Use it to control the motion of anything you want, including skylights, greenhouse vents, windows, etc. The flex link direct push drive has an adjustable maximum 300mm stroke (~12"), and the opening/closing force is approximately 20 lbs, ~12 kg, max current consumption is ~2.0 A @ 12v DC.

motorized skylight openerIt can be adapted to work with most types of skylights or windows: single hung, double hung, hinged casement, etc. The internal electronics provide motor overload cutoff and travel limit stops.

If you need to make a large skylight or bottom-up shade, you could also consider using our ShadeSlider™ chain drive skylight shade motor kit. It does not require any spring loaded roller for operation, so it can handle large shades with ease.

You can buy these electric skylight openers in our online store.

Please keep in mind you can also use them with a web enabled home automation system, which further extends control to your phone, tablet, laptop or any other web enabled device (whether at home or away).

Care should be exercised when these units are installed where adults or children could get fingers caught in a closing window - serious injury could result. Use of insect screens can help eliminate this possibility.
