Somfy, manufacturer of tubular motors for interior window coverings and exterior solar protections, has partnered with Samsung SmartThings, the technology that enables connected living. Using Somfy’s new TaHoma Gateway, Somfy-powered shading solutions can now be fully integrated into the smart home and controlled through the SmartThings application.
SmartThings connects and controls popular smart home devices across various brands, and with the addition of Somfy’s smart shading solutions, homeowners and residents can now control their shades, blinds, draperies, screens, awnings, and pergolas from the same control system as their other connected living devices.
Somfy-powered products will be “Works with SmartThings” certified, allowing users to integrate Somfy into scenes and automations to work together with devices already within the SmartThings ecosystem.
- One Master Control System: one application to control and automate Somfy motorized shades and blinds along with your other smart home devices.
- Natural Lighting Control: shades, blinds, draperies, screens, awnings, and pergolas can open and close on demand or automate them.
- Energy Efficient Homes: Schedule shades to open during the warmest times of the day during winter and close during the hottest times of the day during summer to save on heating/cooling costs.
- Home Automation: Control multiple smart home devices simultaneously by creating a custom scene. With one command, your home can be ready for your next activity, be it waking up or going to bed, leaving the house, or staying in and watching a movie.
