Somfy’s Control4 to Digital Motor Interface is enhancing the smart home environment with better bi-directional communication, less power consumption and seamless integration capabilities

The Control4 to Digital Motor Interface allows for easy installation and because it is Control4 certified, dealers and integrators can find this product in Control4's commissioning software, making the process to deliver a flexible solution even easier.

Somfy, the world’s largest manufacturer of motors for interior window coverings and exterior solar protections, today announces the North American launch of its Control4 to Digital Motor Interface. The Control4 to Digital Motor Interface enables seamless integration of the Somfy Digital Network (SDN) motor family with Control4 systems to deliver an integrated home automation solution.

Somfy North America’s newest interface operates as a wireless end node within a Control4 system. With reliable bi-directional communication, real-time motor position status updates and incremental positioning from 0-100%, end users can more easily control their compatible smart home devices for better natural light management.

The Control4 to Digital Motor Interface is designed to fit smaller shade pockets for roller, roman and woven shades and can be seamlessly integrated into the existing smart home system for enhanced privacy, comfort and energy efficiency. This interface can also be the ideal solution for new residential construction as SDN motors are AC or DC powered, which is easiest to deploy at the same time as construction for built-in bi-directional communication in various torque and power options.

With Control4 certified drivers and a simple integration process, this interface increases convenience for an improved connected living experience.

“This new interface will improve the connectivity of Somfy’s line of digital motors to Control4 systems, while also providing a modern solution for today’s smart home integrations. The Control4 to Digital Motor Interface allows for easy installation and because it is Control4 certified, dealers and integrators can find this product in Control4's commissioning software, making the process to deliver a flexible solution even easier,” said Amit Parpani, Senior Product Manager, Somfy North America.
