Home automation used to be technology for only the ultra-wealthy. However, the emergence of the smartphone and other touch-screen technologies has put touch screens in our hands and has made home automation something that is becoming commonplace in homes everywhere. And, automation is enabling homeowners to streamline controls for motorizing window coverings, as well as integrating lighting, home entertainment, security, heating, and air conditioning.
At OuterWare for Windows, we integrate Somfy-powered motorized window coverings with other home functions such as lighting and thermostat settings. These can be controlled with one simple control system and managed via table-top or in-wall controls or even with your mobile device!
By partnering with Somfy, we are working with the industry-leading provider of motors and controls for motorized blinds, shades, draperies, awnings, and rolling shutters. With over 30 years of experience and more than 100 million motors sold worldwide, there is no better partner than Somfy.
Their TaHomA product combines the benefits of their motorized products with an easy-to-use home automation system to control energy-management devices such as home lighting and home comfort systems. The system enables you to maximize your home’s energy savings by giving you the power to choose natural light, artificial light, and temperature with one-click control whether you’re home or away.
Homes can be easily retrofitted with TaHomA-optimized lighting controls, thermostats, and interfaces that communicate seamlessly with Somfy-powered products. This system can control a single room, an entire home, or even multiple properties. And, it can be used from any computer, smartphone, or tablet.
A TaHomA system can be customized to meet your specific needs using the very innovative and intuitive graphic interface that guides you through steps to create “scenes” or “schedules.” You can create a lived-in scene for when you’re on vacation or a “good morning” scene that sets the window shades and blinds to just where you want them when you wake up. Kitchen lights can be on for you to grab your first cup of coffee with the thermostat set to just where you like it. Now, that’s the way to wake up!
