Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have seen the light! I added FCM (Fixed Curb Mounted) skylights to an outbuilding during a renovation. I wanted natural light, but the security of the building kept me from adding windows to the walls. The sun can be brutal and heat up any type of building anywhere so these were the perfect option. The cathedral ceiling in the building made solar powered remote control of the shade the perfect choice. I even added the upgrade of the Velux KLR 200 touchpad remote to control units independently, in concert, on a schedule, in different modes, and all with the ability to add up to 200 different units as I understand it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love ❤️. I've had a skylight in my master bath for almost 20 years now with NO problems. I'm adding on to my home and had the opportunity to add 2 more skylights and I did. They all bring in soooo much light. Unfortunately with this lovely Georgia heat I need to do what I didn't do before and add blinds which I'm definitely going to do. Now I just need to find the right sized one for my original skylight. Buy a Velux you won't be disappointed. No one asked me to write this, nor have a been compensated in any way. Just love my skylights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We purchased 3 solar power skylights and so far we’re loving it. They were well made and they provide passive lighting to our otherwise dark kitchen. Additionally, the ability to open them were great for those hot summer days to vent out the house. There are also rain sensors that will detect rain and close the skylights automatically. Overall we’re very happy with the product and would recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Functional! We had our manual skylight installed to replace an old one, but this time we added the solar blinds which turned out to be a wonderful feature. It is so easy to use the remote control to regulate the amount of sunlight to keep our kitchen cool on those very hot and sunny days. The window is as beautiful as it is functional and we received excellent service from our Velux representative. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this skylight as an upgrade to an existing one while a new roof was being installed. Very good quality and stylish! What enhanced this product even further was a later addition of a Velux solar blind! What a difference it made in keeping the room cool from the hot afternoon sun! Cooler weather, up with the blind and the sun warms the room through the skylight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VSS Model with Sunshade We replaced our 20+ year old manual skylight with a new Velux. Love being able to control with the remote and having the programmable features. But my favorite feature is that it automatically closes when it starts raining. The sunshade is also important to us in the summer since the skylight faces west. Good investment that we hope to use for another 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Lights are ON! I bought two Velux solar powered skylights with the blinds. They are nothing short of fabulous , they have the automatic rain sensors that close the skylights when it starts to rain. The skylights were installed in my family room which has a cathedral ceiling which when the heat rises it escapes through the skylights. The blinds are a great feature when the sunlight gets too intense we hit the blinds and they close to also reduce the heat. The best feature other that having the skylights is that all the functions can be programed to operate independently so you don't have to be there to do anything. All functions can be programed. After the install of the skylights we put in a wood ceiling and everyone who see it say its like being in a ski resort. We absolutely love our skylights and may be putting in a few more. Now the family room that got light only around noon now has noon light at least six to eight ours a day. THE LIGHTS ARE ON!
