Understanding Roller Shutter Key Fobs

A roller shutter key fob is a small, handheld device that wirelessly controls the operation of roller shutters. It utilises radio frequency (RF) technology to transmit signals to a receiver installed in the roller shutter mechanism. These key fobs are designed for ease of use and typically feature buttons that allow you to open, close, or stop the roller shutters with a simple press.

Let's get into the key features and benefits...


One of the most apparent benefits of roller shutter key fobs is the ease of operation they offer. No more struggling with heavy shutters or manually cranking them up and down. With a key fob, you can effortlessly control your roller shutters with just a push of a button. The convenience factor and benefit is often the most prominent of why business owners decide to switch from manual shutter to electric roller shutters. From our experience, it's no surprise at all, as it makes life easier!

Remote Control

Roller shutter key fobs provide remote control capabilities, allowing you to operate the shutters from a distance. This is particularly convenient for larger properties or when you want to open or close the shutters without having to physically approach them. As well as the convenience element here, it also helps to save time throughout the day that can be invested in other business activities that you need to attend to.


If you have multiple roller shutters on your property, you can often synchronise them to a single key fob. This means you can control all the shutters simultaneously, saving time and effort. This truly helps to streamline systems for all your main key-holders and avoid confusion. Moreover, it also reduces the risk of various key fobs getting lost which can be expensive to replace.


Roller shutter key fobs are designed with user-friendliness in mind. They typically have clear and easy-to-press buttons, making them accessible for all users, including those with mobility issues.

Roller shutter key fobs add an extra layer of security by allowing you to quickly close the shutters if you suspect any unauthorised activity. Furthermore, Some roller shutter key fobs come with advanced security features like rolling code technology, which ensures that the transmitted signals are encrypted and virtually impossible to replicate, further enhancing security.

Manual operation of roller shutters can lead to wear and tear over time. As a result, this can lead to potentially expensive repairs or replacements.
