Somfy is one of the leading brands in the electric blinds market. They have produced over 150 million motors since their inception. Today, they manufacture a motor almost every second of the day. Continually seeking to evolve and push the boundaries of electric blinds technology, Somfy offers products that are reliable. Here are a few reasons why Somfy electric blinds are a great choice for your home.
Battery or Mains Powered
Somfy motorised blinds can be powered by batteries, making them completely wireless, or via mains power. For the mains powered option, a suitable power source needs to be fitted close to the blinds for installation.
Variety of Controls
Somfy offers a wide range of control options for your electric blinds. Somfy’s traditional handsets provide varying levels of control from 1 blind up to 16 blinds. Some handsets also give you the ability to control multiple blinds at once and timer functionality. Alternatively, you can opt for a battery-powered wall switch with multiple blind control options. Lastly, the Somfy Connexoon RTS App allows you to operate your motorised blinds from your smartphone or tablet. This gives you the option to open or close your blinds remotely, even when you’re not at home.
Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) is exclusive to Somfy. It allows you to control your Somfy electric blinds and other Somfy motorized products from virtually anywhere in your home. This may be via one single device such as a handset, or via the Somfy app on your smart device. The RTS technology can operate within a range of up to 65 feet. Plus, radio waves can travel through walls. So you don’t need to be in the same room as your blinds to operate them.
All Somfy electric blind motors are designed to be discreet. But the Somfy Sonesse 40 RTS is particularly quiet. This allows you to operate your motorised blinds without disturbance and to create a calm and relaxing ambience. This option is especially popular for bedroom blinds. Furthermore, the motors feature a soft start and soft stop function as well as adjustable speed settings.
Smart Home Integration
If you have a home automation system installed, such as AT&T, Crestron or Honeywell, Somfy’s electric blinds can be integrated. They can also be linked to many voice-activated home assistants such as Alexa, giving you the option to control your electric blinds via simple voice commands.
