Build and Buy Your Irismo Track
Where would you like the open curtain(s)?
Please tell us where you would like your curtain or curtains to be when they're open. Please think carefully as this decision must be made before we make your track.
If you choose to have one curtain on the track which opens to the left or the right, we will fit the motor to the same side so it is hidden behind. If you choose to have two curtains that open in the centre, we will fit the motor on the left (looking out), unless you ask us to fit it on the right.
Please choose a curtain position.
One each side
Curtain on left
Curtain on right
Which side would you like the motor on?
If you're only having one curtain on the track, you'd normally have the motor on the side as the curtain when open. If you're having two curtains that meet in the middle, please select the side you'd like the motor on, but it doesn't really make any difference as one of the curtains will cover it. The motor is included in the length of the track and is covered by your curtain.
Please choose a motor side.
Fix up to the ceiling or against a wall?
Please choose a fixing type.
Will you be screwing straight up vertically into a window reveal or ceiling, or fixing the track horizontally against a wall or window frame? This simply tells us which fixing brackets to send you. Don't forget to acquire the correct screws and fixings for whichever type of surface you'll be fixing to.

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.
More control options:
Stand-alone Light Sensor – Somfy Sunis WireFree RTS (+£154)
A sensor to shut your curtains in bright sunlight.
This sensor wirelessly connects directly to your Somfy Irismo WF45 curtain track without the need for any of the advanced control options.
This wireless sun sensor sits on your windowsill or attaches directly to your window glass. You can set the sensitivity of the sensor and it talks directly to your Somfy Irismo curtain track to close the curtains if it gets too sunny.
Please note, this sensor cannot be operated in reverse to close your curtains at night. To do this, use the Sunis io below in conjunction with the TaHoma® Home Automation Hub.
(To select the following sensors, you need to select the advanced control option "Somfy TaHoma® Smart Home Hub box", above.
Home Automation Light Sensor – Somfy Sunis io (+£129)
This light sensor is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, and because it works as an input with the TaHoma® home automation hub, can be used to program actions on your curtains. For example, when the sensor placed around the back of your home detects the sun reaching a certain brightness, close the curtains on the back of the house half way. Similarly, when it gets dark, have it close all of your curtains automatically, and open them again in the morning.
The Sunis io sends back the actual light measurement to the TaHoma® so you can program different events at precise light levels.
Home Automation Temperature Sensor – Somfy Thermis io (+£75)
This temperature sensor is also an input for the TaHoma® hub, feeding it with the current measured temperature, allowing you to program temperature-based events. You can even combine it with the Sunis io sensor, so you could have your curtains close if direct sunlight is detected and your room passes a certain temperature. There's a lot you can really get your teeth into.
Somfy bespoke curtain tracks are currently being made and dispatched within 6-7 days of order.
