We love the convenience of motorized shades and blinds, but that convenience wouldn’t be possible without a controller. At Orlando Motorized Shades, we rely on the Somfy brand controller, myLinkTM, which is a handy device that turns any smartphone or tablet into a remote control for motorized shades. myLinkTM has even been updated to work with Alexa for added convenience.
Benefits of myLinkTM
The fact that myLink™ pairs with smartphones and tablets makes it incredibly convenient, no doubt, but that’s only the start of its benefits. Here are a few other things to love about myLinkTM:
- Remote Access. Since myLinkTM is accessible from your smart device, you are able to control your blinds and shades remotely…from anywhere, not just from the house. That means if you want to open the blinds to let the sun in during the day but close them before you get home from work, you can do that. Forgot to close the blinds before leaving on vacation? Open up your myLinkTM app and do it immediately.
- Seamless Integration in the Smart Home. myLinkTM is a no-nonsense addition to your smart home efforts. If you are already controlling things like your thermostat, door locks and lighting from your smartphone, why wouldn’t you also want to control your motorized shades? Motorized shades help ensure home privacy and comfort and can boost energy savings when used wisely.
- Inside/Outside Operation. myLinkTM works with shades and blinds that have been installed indoors or outdoors, providing maximum functionality and convenience.
- Timers. The myLinkTM app allows you to set schedules and basically put your blind or shade operation on a schedule. This is the best way to maximize the benefits of motorized blinds or shades since it doesn’t require you to remember to access the app every day in order to open or close your window coverings. Set it once and forget about it.
- Control Multiple Areas. myLinkTM can control up to 16 separate motorized products or groups of products. That means 16 individual windows, blinds, awnings, etc. OR consolidate all the windows in one room into one group so they all open or close on the same schedule.
- Shareable. myLinkTM can be shared across devices. Install it on your phone and tablet or put it on your spouse’s phone or your kids’ phones so everyone can take advantage of the convenience.
