With today’s technology, specialized motors can power all residential and commercial, indoor and outdoor window coverings including shades, blinds, draperies, exterior solar screens and retractable awning. Find out more here.
The Benefits Of Motorization
The advantages of automation can be summarized in two words – convenience and comfort. With state of the art technology and lack of dangerous cords, movements up, down or sideways are always safer. Integration with the home connectivity system allows for customization and easy adjustments for maximizing energy efficiency and the optimization of views at scheduled times, as well as managing privacy and light filtering.
The Heart Of The Automation
The central piece that is required for motorizing your shades or blinds is the motor. If you are looking for an ultra quiet but powerful option, Somfy’s Sonesse® ULTRA 50 (AC or DC) is one of the best on the market today. It offers excellent lifting capacity with multi-banding of up to six shades, operating in quiet efficiency. Due to its low level of noise, it is perfect for bedrooms or for any other environment that requires low level of noise such as media or screening rooms. Of course it is fully compatible with timers, sensors and the myLink™ app for automatic operation. Other options available are sensors that enable automatic operation of motorized window coverings according to the amount of sunlight and temperature in a room.
Integrating Into Complete Home Connectivity
One of the most popular applications today is the Somfy myLink™ app that can be downloaded into most Apple or Android mobile devices. It enables the homeowner to operate the motorized window treatments from anywhere at a touch of a finger, or based on a pre-planned schedule, maximizing the benefits. It can even be connected to Smart Home voice assistants and smart home ecosystems like Amazon’s Alexa, IEFTT, Google Home or WorksWithNest.
