Motorized Blinds and Shades have gained recognition because of their unrivaled convenience and reliability. Somfy® motors are used for nearly all the motorized products offered by Shades Shutters Blinds, with the exception of the Comfortex and Levolor collections.
Why do we use Somfy motors instead of another brand for our motorized shades and blinds?
1. Affordable Quality: Somfy® Motors are extremely high in quality, but are one of the more affordable motorization options. We are able to pass those savings on to you, so that you can pay less than what our competitors are charging for motorized shades and motorized blinds.The motors by Somfy® that are utilized to maneuver these shades have a very low power consumption which makes them ideal for everyday use. They are also well built and can handle thousands of revolutions of moving the shades up and down. All Somfy® Motors come with a 5 Year Warranty.
2. Convenience: Somfy’s Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) functions omnidirectionally. What does this mean? You don’t have to point at the blind or shade to raise or lower it. You don’t even necessarily have to be in the same room as the shade you want to adjust! Just make sure you are within 65 feet of the shade.
Radio Technology by Somfy® (RTS) is great for large buildings that have numerous windows because although manually opening the shades of a few windows is not much work, handling hundreds of windows can be time consuming. Motorized shades are also ideal for high windows that are hard to reach. With RTS®, you won’t have to bust out that ladder or step stool just to adjust the lighting from the window.
Say goodbye to the days of getting up out of that comfortable bed or couch and adjusting your blinds or shades. Instead, say hello to the convenience offered by Somfy motors. Keep control at your fingertips with the power of Radio Technology by Somfy®.
3. Customization: You don’t have to operate the blinds or shades by remote. For some households, especially with children, things like remotes can get stuffed under couch cushions or buried in piles of toys. That’s why Somfy offers the DecoFlex Wirefree RTS® wall switch, so that when you enter or exit a room you can easily open or close the window covering.
Wall Timers are also available, so that you can program all the shades and blinds in your house to operate on a timer. You can use the wall timer as an alarm clock- which will make it easier for you to get up in the morning.The shades can be programmed to rise at a particular time, allowing sunlight into your bedroom. When that sunlight hits your face, you will surely be forced to wake up and get ready for the day ahead. Wall Timers can also act as a type of home security system. When the house is empty, the shades can still be programmed to raise or lower, creating the illusion of people being inside the house.
Another great option for Somfy® motors is the Sun Sensor timer. This allows for automatic operation of motorized interior window coverings according to the amount of sunlight and temperature of the room.
4. Cord-Free: Somfy® motors make your shade or blinds totally cord-free. Now that more and more products are becoming “wireless,” things like cords and wires have become increasingly unfashionable. With Motorized Shades powered by Somfy®, cords, just like wires, will become a thing of the past! Additionally, remember that cordless shades provide increased child-safety. The risk of your little guy or girl getting tangled in the cords will be one less thing for you to worry about.
