You’re in Control

Somfy’s platform offers three ways to control your motorized products, so you can device what suits you best. Controls are either single-channel or multi-channel, and each channel is used to organize the operation of your motorized products. Each channel can control one motorized product or one group of motorized products. The choice is yours.

Single-Channel Controls: Control a single blind or a group of blinds with the press of a button.

Multi-Channel Controls: Control a single motorized window covering or a group of window coverings. With multi-channels, you have the flexibility to create as many groupings as there are channels.

Your Remote Choices

Say goodbye to cords and wands. Motorized control makes everything easier.

Cutting Edge Smart Home Technology: Get the myLink device and free smart phone app to stay in control whether you’re at home or not. When paired with your hand-held remote or wall switch, the myLink solution optimizes your control of your blinds and shades. Pair Somfy myLink with any RTS (Radio Technology Somfy®) enabled device or with third-party home automation systems including Amazon Alexa. With smart home technology, you’ll be able to use simple voice commands to control your myLink system so you don’t have to stop what you’re doing.
