Bali: Your Home, Your Style Somfy Automation and Controls

Motorized Blinds and Shades

Smarter control

Forget about messing around with operating cords. With motorized blinds and shades, you can control the light and protect your privacy just by pressing a button. And the best part? Motorized blinds and shades can work in just about any window, whether it's way up out of reach, behind the couch, or just across the room.

Smarter safety

Motorized window treatments are cordless—and that means they help make your home safer for kids and pets. If you're going to be away from home for a while, you can set a timer to control your window treatments automatically. That way your house will look occupied, even when you're not there.

Smarter integration

We use industry-leading Somfy motors, which are designed to be compatible with virtually all popular home automation systems. Whether you want to integrate with a system you already have or you're just getting started, our motorized blinds and shades can easily become part of your smart home.

Smarter style

Just picture it: a window with no unwieldy cords hanging down. A clean, uncluttered look can really make your home feel a little fancier. Plus, the Somfy motors are smooth and quiet, so they won't cramp your movie-night style, either.

Dig in to the details

Putting a motorized control package together is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Somfy Automation and Controls

Using your motorized blinds and shades with a home automation system opens up a whole new world of possibilities—like setting your Bali blinds and shades to automatically tilt or lower while simultaneously dimming your lights, controlling them via your smart phone while you're away from home, and so much more.

Somfy motors communicate using exclusive RTS controls, and most home automation systems speak a language called Z-Wave. So all you really need is a good translator! That's where the ZRTSI II Home Automation Interface comes in. It:
