Shade Collective window furnishings are manufactured using premium Somfy motors and control systems.
Benefits of 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 systems enhance our living environments and wellbeing by adding convenience, safety, thermal comfort and energy efficiency.
By choosing Somfy automation, you maximise the functionality of your window furnishings and gain a much-desired flexibility that is simply not possible with a manually operated option.
The benefits of our Somfy automated blinds and curtains include:
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 is also compatible with IFTTT, allowing for voice control via third-party devices including Amazon Echo and Google Nest.
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 the sun in during winter to enjoy natural warmth and light.
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.
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.
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 you will enjoy the ambience and impress your guests with a quiet and sophisticated automated system. In particular, Somfy’s range of motors is especially designed for silence.
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 motors and WireFree motors.
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 motors 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.
