Somfy has announced its integration and certification with Apple Home. This certification will create a seamless integration with Apple Home for all supported Zigbee motors powering interior window applications, and the TaHoma switch.
Zigbee 3.0 technology is an interoperable, globally adopted, and secure IoT solution used to connect smart home devices to a consistent network and create a seamless ecosystem of products that work simultaneously. Through the control of TaHoma switch, the new certification with Apple Home provides a secure way to control Somfy-powered motorized window coverings using Zigbee motors via the Apple Home app and Siri on the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, HomePod, or Mac.
The Apple Home controls will include the ability for precise adjustment of Somfy shades, with automation that can make management completely hands-free. Somfy now offers direct integration into five major smart home control ecosystems, including Apple Home, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Samsung SmartThings, and IFTTT.
A complete range of diverse smart home functionalities from Somfy also continues to be made possible by the TaHoma app, available for all major devices. The app enables end users to control their smart home shading products through a user-friendly and intuitive interface that connects easily and enables shade movement via voice command. The customizable interface simplifies controls and allows users to add devices, scenes, or rooms catered to their preferences while also offering planned controls based on scheduled actions.
