Wired Technology

Provide simple and reliable control

In new construction or renovations, Wired Technology solutions provide simple and reliable control for installations that do not require complex management solutions.  Wired Technology links the control device to the motor using electrical wires carrying power and limiting the switch to the source of control.  The common motor options available for Wired technology are durable and dependable and feature a wide variety of torques and speeds which are a beneficial resource for interior or exterior motorized shading applications.

 When choosing Wired control units, power supply and wiring should be planned prior to construction and include the possibilities of future renovations.
Manual controls must be located near windows and in strategic areas which often requires a detailed system design process before development could take place.

System Features:

  • Provides control of motorized window coverings via a line voltage or low voltage wall switch wired directly to a standard motor
  • Offers control using common line voltage switching
  • Requires an electrician for line voltage switches
  • Wall switches provide single or group motor control
  • A separate switch is required for each motorized window covering

Somfy Digital Network

Intelligent motors and controls for large scale shading projects

The Somfy Digital Network (SDN) is the latest generation of bus-line enabled Intelligent Tubular Motors and Smart Switch Controls. The SDN components are integrated into a cost effective system designed to operate a wide range of end products such as solar screens, projection screens and Venetian blinds over a standard RS-485 network.

The SDN system is a standard half duplex, bi-directional RS-485 network. Bi-directional communications makes it possible to receive feedback from each motor on the network. This allows the system to view the position and status of any motor on the network, in real time. Since the SDN network runs over standard network architecture, it is possible to establish a remote connection to the system from anywhere internet access is available. This defines a new level of commissioning and support services that can be offered for today's energy efficient Intelligent Building.

Digital controls for blinds or projection screens can be based on a computer or a touch-screen device that is linked to a digital bus such as RS-485. The motors are linked to the bus through various interfaces.

Digital controls provide the convenience of a multi-application system:  in hotels, conference rooms and luxury residences it ensures precision control of Audio/Video equipment, indoor temperature (heating and air conditioning), artificial lighting…

The Somfy Digital Network is offered in a “Stand-alone” option or using a fully automated control called animeo® IP. Somfy Digital Network
