Why make your home smart?

Convenient control options

Your automated devices are easily turned on and off with a touch of a screen or by using a voice assistant.

Smart home devices, such as blinds and awnings can be closed or opened according to your needs, at any time of the day, when you leave your house and when you return.

You can also interact with your automated devices using your smartphone at a distance.

Energy efficient properties

The energy efficiency of your home can be greatly improved by the presence of a smart home system.

Your electric blinds and shutters can be programmed to detect changes in temperature and can react by opening or closing to conserve heat or maintain a relatively constant room temperature.

This means there is less of a need to turn on the air conditioner, and household objects such as furniture and plants can be protected from direct sunlight.

Remote checking and controlling

The Somfy TaHoma® app can be used to check up on the status of your automated devices. If your blinds are open when you should have really closed them before leaving your home, you can activate the automated closing motor from another location beyond your property.

Protective qualities

The smart home functionality that we offer includes a presence simulation to make it look like somebody is home even when they are not. This is great as a deterrent against unauthorised entry. Even by simply closing the blinds remotely, it can give the impression your house is occupied.

A smart home adapted to your needs

Introducing the Somfy TaHoma®
