This is the power source that opens and closes the skylight. It also features a built-in rain sensor in the event that you are away from home and inclement weather arises.

With a simple swipe on the touch screen remote, an abundance of natural light can be let into your home and the skylights can be opened allowing fresh air to circulate. A rain sensor will also automatically close the skylight for you if inclement weather arises and you happen to be away from home.

SOLAR POWERED VENTING SKYLIGHT
Manual Venting Skylight
The Velux Manual Venting Skylight is designed for deck and curb installations and allows homeowners to embrace the ultimate beauty of the nature around them. Recommended for in-reach installations, the manual venting skylight contributes to providing homes with proper moisture balance by allowing stale, humid air to be released and the maximum amount of fresh air in.
Convenient Manual Control
Velux Manual Skylights are easily opened and closed with Velux accessories. When skylights are installed within reach a smooth turning handle is included. For out-of-reach installations the controls rods are sold separately- in this case, consider a Solar Powered or Electric Venting model that comes with an easy to use touch screen remote control and integrated rain sensors that will automatically close the unit in the event inclement weather arises.
Deck and curb mounted Velux Fixed Skylights are easy to install and are a perfect daylighting solution when wanting to expand and transform hallways, stairways and other closed-in, dark spaces with light and sky views. They are also the most inexpensive skylight making them an affordable solution for any home.
The Velux Smart Skylight works off of your smartphone to open and close with a simple swipe. It will also automatically close when it senses rain or other inclement weather and is constantly comparing the outdoor elements to the air inside in an effort to create a more comfortable and healthy home atmosphere. Additionally, it reduces the impact on your homes air conditioning costs by releasing heat and uses a solar powered blind system to block out harsh sun rays on hot days. This all-in-one daylighting solution gives you full control right from your smartphone.
