MOTORIZATION – Somfy

SomfyPro.com

kids-bedroomMotors can easily be added to most any shade application.  Motorization is probably the fastest growing segment of the shade business.  There is just something that your customer loves about controlling the shades from their easy chair or office desk.  Ideal for conference, board or projection rooms.  Elevated or hard to reach or large heavy shades.  Operate motors individually or as a group.

Somfy offers a wide range of motors from wireless battery controlled to AC or DC powered.  Motors can be controlled with a wireless hand held remote, wireless wall switch, home automation, from your cell phone or with timers and/or  sun sensors.  All motors fit inside of the roller tube and do not extend more than a bead chain clutch.  Many motors use the same mounting hardware as standard clutch shades.
