Interfaces and Controls for Motorized Window Coverings
Somfy offers a broad range of controls and interfaces that makes it easier than ever to integrate motorized shading with third party control systems regardless of technology or brand.
Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS)
Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) is Somfy's exclusive control platform which enables users to adjust motorized interior window coverings and motorized exterior products such as awnings, rolling shutters and screens from virtually anywhere inside or outside the home.
Universal RTS Interface
The URTSI is an integration device that allows third party systems to control Radio Technology Somfy® motorized applications. The URTSI can control up to 16 RTS channels individually and/or as a group through RS232, RS485 and IR. Multiple URTSIs can be cascaded to control up to 256 channels, using the RS485 expansion port. This ensures optimal coverage of the RTS signal. Its simple design allows you to quickly duplicate programming from existing RTS transmitters and easily locate it within the space without a need for line of sight to the motorized window coverings.
The Somfy ConnectTM expands the capabilities of Somfy systems providing a centralized logic cen- ter and communication bridge. The Somfy Connect allows Somfy Digital Network (SDN) and Radio Technology Somfy (RTS) systems to interact with third party systems allowing the shading system to become part of a truly integrated part of commercial and residential automation systems. The Somfy Connect is equipped with a real-time hardware clock for scheduling shading events. The internal clock keeps time without the need for accessing an external time server and though power loss, ensuring continuous reliable operation. The Connect has Lutron®'s Integration protocol built in allowing Lutron®'s handheld and in-wall controls from RadioRA® 2, HomeWorks® QS, GRAFIK Eye® QS, and Quantum® systems to operate Somfy motorized applications.
The myLink WiFi to Radio Technology Somfy® interface is a WiFi to RTS bridge that can control up to 5 channels of RTS motorized products using the Somfy myLink apps for iOS and Android devices. Through the app, users can send immediate RTS commands, create Scenes (a group of motorized products working together) and Schedules (timed events). Users may access their myLinks from anywhere with the apps' remote access feature. Though the myLink is a single-zone controller, multiple myLinks can be joined within the same system for multi-zone control. The myLink can also serve as an IP to RTS bridge for 3rd party control systems.
Z-Wave® is an interoperable, 2-way RF mesh networking technology use for both residential and light commercial automation applications. Z-Wave systems include lighting, home access control, household appliances, and more. All Z-Wave enabled devices (or nodes) in a system form a mesh network, allowing commands to "hop" from one node to the next, ensuring commands are received regardless of obstacles or distance.
Z-Wave® to Digital Motor Interface
The Somfy Z-Wave® Digital Motor Interface (ZDMI) is a Z-Wave routing device that resides as a node within a designated Z-Wave control network. It receives Z-Wave transmissions and converts them to motor control commands for Somfy's line of digital motors. The interface also receives feedback information from these motors and distributes it to the Z-Wave network.
Z-Wave® to RTS Interface
The Somfy Z-Wave® to Radio Technology Somfy® Interface (ZRTSI) is a Z-Wave bridge controller that receives Z-Wave transmissions and translates them to motor control commands for Somfy's range of Radio Tech- nology Somfy (RTS) motors. The ZRTSI resides as a bridge controller node within a Z-Wave network and becomes a repeating node in the mesh network. The ZRTSI features Network Wide Inclusion (NWI) which allows for inclusion and exclusion through the mesh topology of the Z-Wave network. Z-wave devices from all manufacturers can be used in the same network together. The ZRTSI has 1 base node and 16 virtual nodes. The 16 virtual nodes correspond to 16 RTS channels that, once programmed to the ZRTSI, duplicate all settings associated with each channel for RTS motor control within Z-Wave networks. The ZRTSI requires 110V AC power and can be plugged into any standard outlet.
Z-Wave® to Glydea® Module
The Somfy Z-Wave® Glydea (ZGM) is a Z-Wave routing device that resides as a node within a designated Z-Wave control network. It receives Z-Wave trans- missions and converts them to motor control commands for operating Somfy's Glydea 35 and Glydea 60e drapery motors.
The ZigBee® protocol is a low-powered RF mesh networking technology which uses the reliable 2.4Ghz standard for both residential and commercial applications. On this page, you'll find several links which will help you get the most out of Somfy's ZigBee interface devices.
ZigBee® to Digital Motor Interface
The Somfy ZigBee® Digital Motor Interface allows integration of Somfy-powered motorized window coverings and projection screens into ZigBee® home automation systems. It receives ZigBee transmissions and converts them to motor control commands for Somfy's line of digital motors. It also provides intelligent 2-way communication which offers real-time motor position status updates. It's compatible with all ZigBee controls including hand-held remotes, in-wall controls and PC controls.
ZigBee to Glydea® Module
The Somfy ZigBee® Glydea Module (ZbGM) is a plug-in device that integrates Somfy's line of Glydea® drapery motors into home automation systems using ZigBee® technology. It attaches discreetly into the base of the motor for concealed wireless control.
The animeo IP Building Controller is a hardware and software command center for Somfy Digital Network™ (SDN) installations, providing dynamic solar management using Somfy-powered motorized window coverings along with weather information from real-time sensors. The Building Controller features an intuitive graphical user interface for simplified programming, commissioning, operation and system visualization.
