Time to Automate your Home


Adding home automation to your blinds brings comfort and convenience to your smart home, but also helps to reduce your energy usage and increases your home’s security. 


Our OneTouch and Somfy Electric Blinds bring wireless control to your blinds. Control your blinds from your phone or via remote, and enjoy your windows in a new light.


With Somfy's new TaHoma app, you can easily control your home applications via a smartphone or tablet device.


New legislation has been introduced governing how Electric Blinds operated by chains or looped cords are installed.

This follows a number of tragic incidents involving young children becoming entangled in blind cords/chains. 

Wirelessly operated Electric Blinds have no cord or chain, so there is no hazard to young children, newborns and household pets.


Having shutters and blinds close automatically at night or when you're away from home increases your home's security.

The fewer of your valuables that can be seen from outside, the less chance that a burglar will take a chance on breaking into your home.

If you're away on vacation, you can have the blinds open and close at irregular intervals, making it look like you're still at home.


You can significantly reduce your energy costs by automating your blinds to react to temperature and light level.

Lowering the blinds, when the temperature rises with the sun, will lower the room temperature - saving air conditioning costs.

Opening them during cold winter months to harvest heat from the sun and then closing them as night draws in can save heating costs.


Manually operating blinds, whether it's pulling them down or pulling a chain, takes a toll on the blinds.

Sooner or later they'll need maintaining, motorised blinds work in a smoother way, minimising wear and tear, and extending their life. 


Your Electric Blinds can be set to automatically close when the sun goes down, making your home more cosy and comfortable. In the morning, they can open slowly, or even to a preset position to wake you gently.​

No more struggling to adjust window shades in hard-to-reach locations, or worrying about messy dangling cords. Relax and let our motors do the work.

No need to go around your home opening and closing blinds, they can look after themselves based on automatic schedules, or you can operate them from your smartphone whether you're at home or away. Never forget to close them again!

Somfy’s myLinkTM app enables you to operate your motorized shades anytime, anywhere. Whilst our Somfy and OneTouch motors integrate seamlessly into other home automation systems, creating the ultimate smart home.
