Benefits of Motorising Internal Window Coverings

The environment we create within our homes and offices contributes significantly to health and wellbeing in our daily lives. Somfy automation systems enhance our living environments and wellbeing by adding convenience, safety, thermal comfort and energy efficiency.

By choosing Somfy automated window coverings, you maximise the functionality of your product and gain a much-desired flexibility that is simply not possible with a manual system.

The benefits of Somfy automated blinds and curtains include:


With the simple touch of a button you can move your blind or curtain to whatever position you like. You can also add sensors and timers so your products work for you even when you’re not at home. The home automation solution, Connexoon Window RTS, allows you to control your window coverings from your mobile device, no matter where you are in the world. Connexoon Window RTS is also compatible with IFTTT, allowing for voice control via third-party devices including Amazon Echo and Google Home.

2.Energy Efficiency

Reduce your energy usage by controlling the amount of heat and light entering your home. Keep your home cool in summer by reflecting the harsh heat of the sun but allow the sun in during winter to enjoy natural warmth and light.

3.Longer Lifespan

Manual operation can damage blinds and curtains through excessive force or improper use. Somfy’s smooth and controlled operation of blinds and curtains ensures both maximum functionality and a longer lifespan of the product.


Loose cords and chains are a danger to young children. With Somfy automated blinds and curtains, the cords and chains are completely removed, providing peace of mind for you and a safer environment for your children.

5.Quiet and Discreet

Somfy’s world leading motors are fully concealed inside the tube of the blind. With the simple press of the remote control you will enjoy the ambience and impress your guests with a quiet and sophisticated automated system. In particular, Somfy’s Sonesse range of motors is specially designed for silence.
