Eyeing to make the outdoor space smarter, Tuuci has launched automatic functions for its parasols, available in the single and dual Ocean Master Max and Plantation Max Cantilever Parasols.

With the use of an icon-based interface system, users can operate three functions from their fingertips, including the ambient Luna LED light, which illuminates upward into the canopy, reflecting indirect light evenly underneath the umbrella; two heaters that take the chill out of the air, keeping everyone warm underneath the canopy; and the open-close function, eliminating the effort required with manual cranks and lifting mechanisms. After automatically opening the umbrella with the user control panel, all connected functions can be activated independently when needed.

Safety is incorporated into the control panel, with automated heating and lighting functions disabled until the parasol is fully open. It also has a built-in stop feature which activates if the canopy bumps into another object when opening or closing. The heaters automatically turn off after four hours of operation. Additionally, there is a two-minute cool down period between the moment the heaters are turned off and the canopy closes. If the heaters have not been used, the parasol will close immediately upon pushing the button. The system also ensures only authorized users have access to automation, as it comes standard with an automatic lock-out feature.
