Somfy WiFi Controls Bring Automation To Window Treatments

Have you ever been woken up too early by blinding sun or sat down to watch a movie only to realize that light coming in from the window was causing glare? Did you then huff and sigh and force yourself to get up to adjust the window coverings or did you just put up with it? What if there were a way to open and close your window treatments, blinds, and shades without having to move?

There is! The Somfy myLinkTM system, available through Orlando Motorized Shades, brings smart home tech to window treatments. This WiFi-enabled solution turns ordinary window coverings into motorized window coverings! Controls are operated via a Somfy remote or your smartphone for unparalleled convenience.

The Next Stage of Smart Home Automation

Smart homes are all the rage these days. We’ve got apps to control the temperature in our homes, our security systems, doors and points of entry, indoor and outdoor lighting, and, of course, music and ambiance. One area that has been overlooked up until now are window treatments. Smart window treatments are the next stage in smart home automation. Window coverings affect home comfort, function, and security – all three of which are often addressed by smart home tech. Motorized blinds and shades are also simply useful and convenient, making it possible to adjust the lighting in a room (or the whole house!) with the touch of a button.

Our motorized window treatments are available for homes and businesses, allowing property owners to open and close their shades and blinds 24/7, whether they are in the same room as the windows or not. This can help control temperature in the room, improve worker productivity by increasing natural light or blocking blinding sun, and help improve security by blocking the interior from prying eyes.

Somfy myLinkTM includes a scheduling function for truly automated window control and even comes with Amazon Alexa integration for voice-controlled operation! Click here to learn more about Somfy myLinkTM.

6 Features To Love About Somfy myLinkTM

6 Features To Love About Somfy myLinkTM

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Inside/Outside Operation. myLinkTM works with shades and blinds that have been installed indoors or outdoors, providing maximum functionality and convenience.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
