Advantages of smart home automation

One key advantage of automatic roller shutters is the fact that they experience significantly lower levels of wear and tear. The uniform gliding motion of the mechanisms means the roller shutters are subjected to fewer stresses and last much longer than those that are operated manually using crank handles and belt winders. The operating process is both easy and quiet in equal measure. You can also save energy thanks to sensors that even help your roller shutters react to light conditions and the seasonal position of the sun.

People with additional physical needs can also benefit from installing this kind of system, because having an automatic tube motor to open and close your roller shutters for you takes all the effort out of the equation. As such, the advantages of having an automatic roller shutter radio control system are very easy to see:

  • Operable by everyone, no matter your age
  • Noticeable energy savings
  • Greater security thanks to the smart home app

Link everything together in a smart network with io-homecontrol®

The io-homecontrol® radio control can do far more than just controlling your roller shutters automatically. In fact, it not only integrates your roller shutters with your home automation system, but can also link up all the compatible devices, switches and drivers in your home. The list of compatible features includes:

  • Awnings
  • Garage doors and driveway gates
  • Blinds
  • Smoke alarms
  • Cameras
  • Lights
  • Alarm systems

In order to be able to fully benefit from all the functions of an intelligent home control system, you need to have what is known as a smart home hub. We recommend the TaHoma Premium smart home hub from Somfy, which you can order from us when you configure your new roller shutters. You can either control this device using an app on your laptop, PC, tablet or smartphone, or simply let the processes run entirely automatically. It does not get any easier than that.

Smart home roller shutter control – how new systems can change your life

Tablets and smartphones have long been an indispensable part of our everyday lives. They open up a seemingly endless world of possibilities and almost always provide us with the solution we need, whether we are checking our email, listening to music, socialising, navigating to a destination or taking photos on the go.

Apps can even make your own home more comfortable and convenient by networking various different smart devices together. The manufacturer-agnostic io-homecontrol® radio protocol lets you link up as many of the electronic devices in your home as you like.

Digital networking is achieved without laying impulse lines and works bidirectionally, i.e. via a transmitter and a receiver. When a command is sent, the target device emits a response, giving you peace of mind that the task you require is actually being performed.

Even when you are away from home, you can use your tablet, smartphone or other device to check the status of your lighting or your roller shutters at any time. Each installation also comes with a security key to protect you against unauthorized access and data theft.

Flexible retrofitting made easy

The modular system lets you gradually expand your smart home network over time and link in such additional features as blinds, awnings and controls for your lights, heating, roller shutters, windows and doors whenever you like. The free app is available for iOS in the App Store and for Android in the Google Play Store.

By the way, anyone who has concerns about radio emissions can rest easy. Smartphones have a transmission power of around 1 watt, and Wi-Fi routers emit approximately 0.1 watts. By contrast, the amount of power the io-homecontrol® system transmits is measured in milliwatts. Furthermore, it is only active for between 1 to 10 seconds per day.

As a result, your smart home roller shutter control system gives off 1,000 times fewer emissions than a smartphone and is used for just a thousandth of the time.

Extending smart home systems: the house of the future

The term 'smart home' has been around since the early 2000s and describes a home that has been equipped with computer and sensor technology that is all linked together and networked with the outside world. The idea of having a central radio-frequency remote control system for an entire house was developed as part of an architectural competition as far back as 2001. Other terms for this type of concept include intelligent living, eHome and smart living.

Nowadays, all kinds of entertainment, multimedia and household devices can be linked up together as part of a "smart" network. This not only means you can operate them from far away, but also monitor them from a great distance, too. Someone who fully adopts smart home technology might link their weather stations, their blinds, their lighting and shading systems, their heating and air conditioning units, and all their windows, doors, and gates together to achieve maximum levels of security, energy savings and a pleasant indoor climate.

The number of smart home systems has been increasing for several years now, thanks in large part to the widespread use of smartphones and developments in modern wireless technology. These developments allow smart devices to be operated and monitored centrally as part of a home's building services system. Indeed, you can control almost anything with a smart home, including lights and roller shutters themselves.

They save time, reduce your energy consumption and make living more comfortable for young and old alike – wireless smart home systems score high marks with their clever solutions and are more than worth the investment in the long run. Enjoy the following benefits:

  • High levels of security
  • Lower energy consumption
  • The ideal humidity and temperature in every room
  • Personalised heating plans: intelligent roller shutter timers learn what you need
  • Effective roller shutter break-in protection with smart home security systems (e.g. networked motion detectors, surveillance cameras, fire alarms, contact switches, etc.)
  • Healthy lighting (with optional colours)
  • Privacy at the touch of a button
  • Optimised power control to make sure your roller shutters open and close gently
  • Roller shutter motors are deactivated when frost is detected
