What is a smart home?

A home that uses advanced automation systems

Whats a smart home?

smarthomes are now affordable to anyone.

A smart home is a home that incorporates advanced automation systems to provide the inhabitants with sophisticated monitoring and control over the building's functions. Traditionally these systems have been out of the reach of most people but with new systems coming onto the market smart technology is becoming affordable.

We offer smart blind solutions from Somfy and Qmotion. Both options allow control from Android or iOS devices and both options can be controlled using Amazons Echo with Alexa. As technology moves on more and more systems are coming to market that can control your blinds.

If you already have a home automation system from someone such as Control4 there are solutions available to allow control of Somfy blinds via an RS485 transmitter. And integration with Lutron systems is possible with QMotion.

Somfys TaHoma offers control of other devices such as Philips Hue lighting and thermostats from Danfoss and others. As well as many security options from Somfy.
