Somfy has announced its integration with Alarm.com. This enables North American Alarm.com customers to add the TaHoma Gateway for added security in their home or business through integrated remote control automation of awnings, pergolas, and interior window shades and natural light management.
With Somfy’s technology, Alarm.com can offer another layer of protection to its customers and elevate the smart home experience with automatic scenes and schedules. Tahoma Gateway communicates with devices using Radio Technology Somfy (RTS), Somfy’s exclusive control platform that which enables users to adjust motorized blinds, shades, awnings, and exterior screens. The device fits seamlessly into the Alarm.com ecosystem for homes, apartments, and commercial spaces.
The addition of automatic scenes and schedules to Alarm.com’s ecosystem with TaHoma Gateway provides greater control over privacy in the home and commercial spaces. For example, a “leaving home” scene can lower the shades, switch off the lights, and enable the alarm system, all with one button touch. TaHoma Gateway connects to Alarm.com products over Wi-Fi using a cloud-to-cloud integration, and users can adjust shades to let in the right amount of natural light and deliver the right level of privacy from the Alarm.com smartphone app.
The added security provided by integrating Somfy products through TaHoma Gateway with Alarm.com’s ecosystem delivers customizable solutions for privacy and security in the home and commercial spaces.
