Somfy is taking home automation to the next level with it’s unique and innovative concept on creating a smart home both inside and out. They are bringing new levels of convenience, comfort, security and energy savings to their users.

“Imagine opening or closing your blinds, locking your doors, checking on your dog, or turning the heat on, all from your smart phone. This might sound like something out of a science fiction novel, but it is quickly becoming reality. Home automation, which used to be out of reach for most consumers, has made a splash in a big way over the last ten years, with new technologies and patents emerging each year”. -Somfy

“If you are looking for ways to make your home smarter, more intuitive, and more accessible, home automation may be for you. However, it is important to do your research before taking the plunge. So, before you jump online and start purchasing the latest automated thermostat, there are some questions you’ll want to work through”. -Somfy
