Power when you need it

Motor types

WireFree™ motors can run on a Somfy battery pack, which sits out of sight behind your blind. There is no need to compromise your decor either, as the battery pack provides a WireFree power solution and your blind is operated by remote control.

Why choose battery...

  • Discrete and easy to install
  • A WireFree™ solution
  • Rechargeable options available
  • Environmentally friendly

Use the sun's energy to power your blinds. A slim photo voltaic solar panel delivers constant power to the rechargeable battery, even when it's cloudy. The solar panel is easy to fit and will give a minimum of 5 years operation.

Why choose solar..

  • A greener energy source
  • A WireFree™ solution
  • Continous power supply
  • Permanent power

If you have the option to include wired-in technology, you could consider our Sonesse range of motors. Control these quiet motors with a simple remote control or integrate them into your home automation system.

Why choose mains...

  • No need to replace batteries
  • Continuous power supply
  • Ideal for larger or heavier blinds

A complete solution

Somfy® motors can be fitted in all types of blinds and almost every major blinds brand on the market by our Somfy® Experts. Motors are concealed in the blind system, so you won't even know it's there. Your electric blind is complete when your blind is fitted with a motor, a power supply and a remote control.
