Many manufacturers of window treatments lock you into their own motorization & automation components and only offer their own selection of window treatments, cassettes, fascias & fabrics. This ultimately means you lose the flexibility to alter, change, add or upgrade your automation components unless it is provided by that manufacturer. Most importantly, you lose the flexibility of choosing from the wide variety of window treatments in the marketplace.
Considering that your choice of window treatments is your first step and motorized and integrating them into a home automation system is second, choosing the right window treatments is the right first step.
With SOMFY you have flexibility to automate all your window treatments leaving you free to choose from thousands of products, fabrics, colours and textures.

THE INTERNET OF THINGS
Technology is constantly changing and evolving. Apps are taking over from stand-alone home automation systems. We are in a plug-and-play environment where either modules or APPS can be added to a system as the client’s needs and expectations grow. How many hi-tech products are now resting an a landfill somewhere, some that you bought yourself.
Suppliers of proprietary systems can’t take a newly developed APP and integrate it into their system without substantial cost or technical knowledge. Developers don’t create APP’s for each any every AV platform. They produce APP’s that work across all the most popular smart consumer devices. Integrating into Home Automation Systems can involve a software upgrade or may require additional components. Adding components and additional software to a system that is not built to work with ‘outside’ components can leave you with an unstable system across your entire operating system or the inability to add additional products.
Somfy sees a the future where consumers have the ability to add, subtract and change their needs as technology changes. An open-source system is Somfy’s strong point.
Invest in a system that gives you flexibility. Somfy gives you that.
