New products combine established technology in a new way-using solar power to control our window coverings.
Somfy's unique products include a variety of motorized window coverings systems to control rolling shutters and screens to curtains, all of which can be programmed to open and close automatically.
There are even control apps to use on smartphones and tablets. “Block the sun, create privacy or experience warm and welcoming natural light…effortlessly,” the company says.
But there is more:
Somfy’s WireFree™ solar pack harnesses renewable solar energy to power WireFree™ motorized window coverings. The solar pack offers a green alternative to powering WireFree™ motorized window coverings by reducing the replacement and disposal of standard batteries. This solar-powered solution offers the following benefits:

Patented energy saving technology uses sunlight to power the motorized window covering(s)
Convenient and cost-effective - reduces battery replacement and preserves environment
