Advanced Control Information
Tahoma Smart Switch
Somfy's Tahoma Switch connects to your WiFi and les you control all your smart devices, such as curtain tracks, blinds, lights, electric garage doors and gates, cameras, alarms and numerous types of sensor, using your smart phone, tablet, iPad or voice-controlled assistant such as Alexa or Google Assistant.
As you grow your collection of smart home devices, you can control them individually, in groups, or in combinations called 'scenes' that will automatically run through a list of actions at the touch of a button.
One scene may be called "Wake up", where you tell the Tahoma Switch that you want to open all the curtains and blinds, start playing your favourite music playlist and turn the lights on in the kitchen.
You might make another scene called "I'm going out", which you set to turn your lights off, open your garage door and open your gates.
The Tahoma Switch allows you to program events on a timer too, perfect for going away on holiday and having your home look lived in. You can set the curtains to open and close and lights to come on and go off at times throughout the day.
You also have the option (which you can select further down this page) to add sensors, such as light and temperature sensors, so you can make your curtains close when it gets dark outside, or perhaps have the conservatory blinds come down if it reaches a certain temperature.
The more devices you connect, the more options you have in making them work together.

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.
