Somfy Connexoon Box (+ £135)
Control your curtains using an app on your phone or tablet
With this option, we additionally supply you the Somfy Connexoon box, which connects to your internet router and lets you control a whole range of Somfy products using your phone or tablet, including these electric curtain tracks. You can also control them when you're away from your home.
For your Somfy curtain tracks and blinds, there's a tablet and phone app called 'Connexoon Window' that works with the Connexoon box to allow you to control them individually, altogether, or to set timers.
The addition of this little Connexoon box opens up a whole new world of home automation for you, also allowing you to control Somfy garage doors, gates, power sockets and lights, including Philips Hue. These products use a second app that works with the Connexoon box, called 'Connexoon Access'.
Somfy TaHoma® Smart Home Hub box (+£210)
Control your curtains (and other devices) with your existing Amazon Alexa or Google Home, as well as an app on your phone or tablet.
"Alexa, open the dining room curtains".
With this option, we also supply you with the Somfy TaHoma® home automation hub, a smart home controller that you plug into your internet router. You'd choose this instead of the Connexoon, rather than in addition to it. It's a lot more powerful and compatible with a huge range of existing home automation technologies including: Somfy's full range of sensors, Amazon's Alexa, Google Home, SONOS, IFTTT, Honeywell, Philips Hue, Danfoss, Velux and Hitachi products.
The TaHoma® also lets you control your curtain tracks with a phone or tablet app, as well as letting you add many interesting Somfy devices, such as light and temperature sensors which you can program to open and close your curtains.
Controlling your curtains is just the tip of the iceberg with the Somfy TaHoma® box. With this box installed, you can fully automate your house by buying different addons, controlling lights, heating, your house alarm and even CCTV.
Use your existing Home Automation System (Advanced) (+£450)
With this option, we also supply the Somfy RS485 RTS Transmitter, which turns commands from your existing home automation system, including Lutron, Creston and Control 4, into RTS signals which control Somfy products.
Please get in touch with the make and model of your existing home automation equipment and we can talk directly with Somfy to help you understand how this will work with your existing kit.
