Power your Roller Shades, Solar Shades, Sheer Shades, Cellular Shades, Natural Shades, Soft Shades, Pleated Shades, Fresco Roman Shades, or any of our tilt control blinds with an RTS, Radio Technology Somfy, motor. RTS motors have been the powerhouse in the motorized window treatment community for decades, Somfy being the leading supplier, most trusted and reliable source for motors in the industry since its inception. Depending on its size, your shade can be powered by a 12 volt, 24 volts, or 120-volt motor. Power a single window covering with the use of a plug-in transformer with a hardware plugin. Single window coverings that are small enough can be operated by a 12 or 24-volt motor. A multi-motor power supply transformer can be used to hardwire 10 12 volt motors for a total of 120 volts per transformer. A licensed electrician is required for the installation of a multi-motor power supply, where the transformer enclosure is typically mounted in an easily accessible, hidden location indoors such as a basement, a utility closet, or a garage, where 16 gauge wires will run from the motors directly into a single panel.
If you would like to wire a DC plug-in for individual shades, a power outlet must be within the cord length to power the motor. Cord lengths come in sizes 72” power cord and 96” extension cable for 12 volts where the power cord and extension cable cannot be cut to length and 96” motor lead and a 60” power cord for a 24-volt motor where the cord can be cut to length. Home automation through a plugged-in motorized window treatment can be accessed through Alexa, Google Home, or Siri, and be integrated into your smart device with one of our smart device integration options which include Samsung SmartHub, Wink, or Lutron. Somfy motors can also be powered by batteries. Battery tubes are 18” long and can power a motor supply as a single tube or a double tube, each of which houses 8 AA lithium ion batteries which will last about a year to a year and a half with normal use. Battery tubes can power 12-volt motors only.
Battery tubes can power Somfy motors where the tubes can be hidden from view and recessed within the valance. Home automation through battery operated window treatments can be accessed through Alexa, Google Home, or Siri, and be integrated into your smart device with one of our smart device integration options which include Samsung SmartHub, Wink, or Lutron. Solar power kits for Somfy motors, available for shades under 96” in height, are a great option for indoor shades that receive direct sunlight through a single or double pane window that has a minimum of 65% light transmission. Window treatments powered by solar energy are not recommended to be used through impact glass.
Radiofrequency controls can be used to operate any of these options with Telis handheld remotes, 1, 5, or 16 channels, a simple single channel remote, DecoFlex wireless wall switches, 1 or 5 channels, or DecoFlex tabletop remotes, 1 or 5 channels. Mylink WiFi to RTS interface is a great bridge from which Somfy my link apps for iOS and Android devices can control window treatments for home automation for up to 16 Somfy motors. My link can also connect voice command systems link Google Home, Alexa, Amazon Echo, Lutron, Wink, and Siri. The 16 Channel Z wave to RTS bridge is also an interface that can act as a bridge to control a Somfy RTS motor with a Z wave network. The Z wave network is utilized by Graber motorized shades as the most advanced frequency on the market. Z wave technology is specific to window treatments and will not catch interference from similar frequencies like other motorized blinds with remotes have experienced in the past.
