Somfy has announced its new partnership with Samsung SmartThings. Using Somfy’s new TaHoma Gateway, Somfy-powered shading solutions can now be fully integrated into the smart home and controlled through the SmartThings application.
SmartThings connects and controls thousands of popular smart home devices across hundreds of brands, and with the addition of Somfy’s smart shading solutions, homeowners and residents can now seamlessly control their shades, blinds, draperies, screens, awnings, and pergolas from the same control system as their other connected living devices. Somfy-powered products will be “Works with SmartThings” certified, allowing users to seamlessly integrate Somfy into scenes and automations to work together with devices already within the SmartThings ecosystem.
Key Features and Benefits
- One Master Control System: SmartThings improves smart home accessibility/usability by offering one convenient application to control and automate Somfy motorized shades and blinds along with your other smart home devices.
- Natural Lighting Control: Choose to have your shades, blinds, draperies, screens, awnings, and pergolas open and close on demand or automate them and spend more time on the things that matter most.
- Energy Efficient Homes: Schedule shades to open during the warmest times of the day during winter and close during the hottest times of the day during summer to save on heating/cooling costs.
- Home Automation: Don’t let errands eat up your quality time. Control multiple smart home devices simultaneously by creating a custom scene. With one command, your home can be ready for your next activity, be it waking up or going to bed, leaving the house, or staying in and watching a movie.
