Switch Controls Your Drapery
Motorized Interior Window Shades and Blinds
Imagine pushing a button or flipping a switch and watching as your interior window shades or horizontal blinds roll up, down and even tilt to conveniently provide shade from the sun, privacy when you want it, or allow light to enter as you wish.
All this is yours when you add SOMFY motorization and our stylish line of decorator switches, remote and group controls. You'll soon realize the benefits of motorization because you will use them more often. That means more energy efficiency and better sun protection for your valuable furnishings and carpet--giving you improved control over the interior room environment.
Motorization also helps your window treatments last longer because the manual pulling and tugging goes away and so does the associated wear and tear. What's more, SOMFY's unique Cord Take-Up system eliminates cord tangling and overlap to provide a smooth and uniform movement. SOMFY's range of small but reliable and powerful motors are easily concealed behind a decorative headrail which is typically a part of your window treatment. This design feature enables a motorized blind to look just like a manual one...So it only compliments your decor. What's more, our motors and controls are UL and CSA approved for safe operation while utilizing very little electricity. And the absence of hanging cords eliminates any concern for you childs safety.
Perhaps the most popular control option for motorized shades is group control. This feature allows you to control an entire room, floor or household of motorized window treatments at the same time from a single switch. It eliminates the laborious and time consuming task of manually operating every shade in the morning and at night...
If you have several shades or blinds and you'd like the option of operating them individually as well as in groups, then the SOMFY IGC is the control for you. This electronic control makes it easy and convenient to operate virtually any number of window treatments. Each individual IGC switch lets you control the movement of a single windwo treatment, while a master switch gives you control over a room, floor or entire household of motorized shades.
