Benefits to Motorising Internal Window Coverings

The environment we create within our homes and offices contributes significantly to health and wellbeing in our daily lives. Somfy automation solutions enhance our living environments and wellbeing by adding convenience, safety, thermal comfort and energy efficiency. By choosing Somfy automated internal window coverings, you maximise the functionality of your product and gain a much-desired flexibility that is simply not possible with a manual system. The benefits of Somfy automated blinds and curtains include:

1. Convenience
With the simple touch of a button you can move your blind or curtain to whatever position you like. You can also add sensors and timers, so your products work for you even when you’re not at home. The home automation solution, Connexoon Window RTS, allows you to control your window coverings from your mobile device, no matter where you are in the world. Connexoon Window RTS also allows for voice control via third-party devices including Google Nest (direct connection) and Amazon Echo (using IFTTT).

2. Energy Efficiency
Reduce your energy usage by controlling the amount of heat and light entering your home. Keep your home cool in summer by reflecting the harsh heat of the sun but allow sun in during winter to enjoy natural warmth and light while relieving pressure on your heating and cooling systems.

3. Longer Lifespan
Manual operation can damage blinds and curtains through excessive force or improper use. Somfy’s smooth and controlled operation of blinds and curtains ensures both maximum functionality and a longer lifespan of the product.

4. Safety
Loose cords and chains are a danger to young children. With Somfy automated blinds and curtains, the cords and chains are completely removed, providing peace of mind for you and a safer environment for your children. Protecting your home while you’re away is even easier with Somfy automation, allowing you to control your window coverings wherever you are in the world, or pre-program scenarios to simulate presence in your
home and deter intruders.

5. Quiet and Discreet
Somfy’s world leading motors are fully concealed inside the tube of the blind. With the simple press of the remote control or Connexoon Window RTS app, you will enjoy the ambience and impress your guests with a quiet and sophisticated automated system. In particular, Somfy’s Sonesse range of motors is especially designed for silence.

Internal Products

Sonesse – ultra quiet motors

Somfy offers world-leading performance with the range of Sonesse ultra quiet motors. Sonesse motors use patented technology to dampen noise and vibration to deliver a new standard in acoustic control. The Sonesse range is available in both wired technology, RTS radio technology and WireFree motors.

Curtain motorisation

Somfy’s Glydea ULTRA curtain motor system is quiet, discreet, flexible and robust to deliver the highest quality in automated curtains for any location. Designed with an adaptable operating system to suit the environment, you can choose to control your curtains via dry-contact, radio RTS technology or RS485 modules. Plus, the ‘Touch Motion’ feature will open or close the curtain simply by pulling on the fabric. Alternatively, Somfy’s Irismo 45 WireFree RTS motor provides you with all the benefits of curtain motorisation, without the need for domestic wiring, thanks to a removable, rechargeable battery.

Somfy’s WireFree range

Offering the benefits of remote control operation without the need for electrical connection, Somfy’s battery-powered motors are the ideal solution for hard to reach blinds, when electrical connection is difficult or simply as your introduction to motorisation.

Benefits to Motorising External Solutions

The sun protection provided by awnings, roller shutters and external blinds is a key factor for health and wellbeing in our daily lives. Somfy motor and control solutions enhance our wellbeing by adding convenience, thermal comfort and environmental efficiency.

By choosing a Somfy automated awning, roller shutter or external blind, you maximise the functionality of your product and gain a much-desired flexibility that is simply not possible with a manual system. The benefits of Somfy automated awnings, roller shutters and external blinds include:

1. Convenience

With the simple touch of a button you can move your awning, roller shutter or external blind to whatever position you like. You can also add sensors and timers, so your products work for you even when you’re not at home.

The home automation solution, Connexoon Window RTS, allows you to control your window coverings from your mobile device, no matter where you are in the world. Connexoon Window RTS also allows for voice control via third-party devices including Google Nest (direct connection) and Amazon Echo (using IFTTT).

2. Energy Efficiency

Reduce your energy usage by controlling the amount of heat and light entering your home. The major benefit of external products is that they block UV rays or cold before they reach your window, therefore preventing them from entering your home.

3. Longer Lifespan

Somfy’s smooth and controlled operation of awnings, roller shutters and external blinds ensures both maximum functionality and a longer lifespan of the product. Manual operation can damage blinds and awnings through excessive force or improper use.

Somfy’s Maestria 50 RTS motor is designed for all types of external screens and features smart obstacle detection, which will automatically retract your screen when it detects an obstacle, preventing damage to your screen.

4. Safety

Loose cords and chains are a danger to young children. With Somfy automated awnings, roller shutters and external blinds, the cords and chains are completely removed, providing peace of mind for you and a safer environment for your children.

Protecting your home while you’re away is even easier with Somfy automation, allowing you to control your window coverings wherever you are in the world, or pre-program scenarios to simulate presence in your home and deter intruders.

5. Quiet and Discreet
