Electric Curtain Track
The curtains in the lounge are electrically operated using a
SilentGliss AutoGlide electric curtain track.
||The system comprises an AutoGlide curtain track
which replaces the normal curtain rail. Inside the
track, an electrically operated drive belt moves the
"eyes" to open and close the curtains. The picture shows
the curtain track attached to the motor drive unit which
may be fitted to the left or right side of the curtains.
The devices below the track are the various options to
control the unit; daylight sensor, IR sensor, IR remote
control and the timer control unit.
Depending on the level of control required, one or
more of these options can be chosen as described below.

The following details are from the
Basic Model: Silent Gliss 5090 Autoglide
Entry level model which allows the curtains to be opened and
closed using a fixed wall switch.
Option 1: Silent Gliss 5090IR Autoglide
Ease of use is improved with the addition of an infrared
Option 2: Silent Gliss 5090TL Autoglide
With the Timer Light unit, the opening and closing can be
controlled using the wall switch, a timer or the light sensors
or a combination of all three.
Option 3: Silent Gliss 5090TC Autoglide
Total control means you can combine the TL and IR options
above giving you a totally flexible system.
Although I chose to go with option 3, although the light
sensor is installed, I don't use it to control the curtains,
they mostly on timer control with the IR remote used to override
the timer when required.
