Radio Technology Somfy ( RTS ) is Somfy's exclusive control platform which enables users to adjust motorized exterior products such as awnings, rolling shutters, and screens from virtually anywhere inside or outside the home. RTS allows users to enter a world of solutions designed to create ambiance and bring designs to life to provide the ultimate combination of luxury and performance effortlessly!
RTS is offered with a variety of options such as hand-held remotes, wireless wall switches, table top controls, mobile device control, timers and sensors.
How Does RTS Work?
A simple press of a button on a remote control or wireless wall switch sends out a radio wave signal to move any motorized interior or exterior product with ease.
There is no need to point or aim the remote, because RTS is omnidirectional and operates within a range of up to 65 feet. And just like a garage door opener, the radio waves travel through walls, making control of motorized products easier than ever.
When I think of todays technology I often think of my Grandfather, and if I were capable of speaking to him, say something like, "Look at this retractable awning I have. All I have to do is push this button and look, it's going out!"
And then being able to watch the expression of his face, because his idea of technology was being able to hang an antenna on the outside of his home and get TV reception.
