Next Generation Somfy myLink Provides Smart Home Control, Expanded Integration

New Somfy myLink updates provide better performance, better features and better value for the CEDIA channel.

The updated myLink from Somfy Systems, manufacturer of radio-controlled motors for interior and exterior window coverings, allows for mobile control of Radio Technology Somfy (RTS) motorized products from a smartphone or tablet and acts as a bridge to integrate with third-party systems. With updated hardware and software, the new myLink improves performance and expands integration options for Somfy-powered motorized window coverings.

The recently revamped myLink interface now features a sleek, modern design as well as improved response time and security enhancements. A new dual antenna design strengthens RF performance, while dual band WiFi support makes the myLink compatible with more home networks than ever before.

Among the many software enhancements, the myLink now acts as an IP bridge for wireless integration of RTS products into home automation systems, making it easier than ever to bring the value of motorized window coverings into a smart home environment. A Control4 driver is currently available with more soon to come for other major home automation systems.

The Somfy myLink is also compatible with the Somfy Synergy API integration protocol, for integrators who would like to create custom programming for their projects. This API offers new IP solutions, openness through drivers, and consistency for integrators from project to project.

“Somfy has always been committed to making high-quality products that are integration ready,” says Tom Murphy, COO, Somfy North America. “The updated myLink is the latest effort to simplify integration with our wide scope of Somfy-powered solutions.”
