Somfy Synergy™ API Launches to Expand Motorized Shading Integration
The New Somfy Synergy™ API Provides a Simple Way to Speak to Somfy Motorized Products.
Somfy Systems, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of tubular motors for interior and exterior window coverings, introduces the new Somfy Synergy™ Application Programming Interface (API), an open, simplified way to integrate Somfy motorization solutions into third-party control systems. This publicly available API makes it easy to integrate Somfy motorized shading solutions into nearly every home automation system.
“The new Somfy Synergy API is part of Somfy’s commitment to offering flexible integration options to work with a wide variety of projects,” said Tom Murphy, Chief Operating Officer of Somfy North America.
When combined with Somfy integration interfaces, Somfy’s new API will provide consistency, customization and easy adoption for integrators to seamlessly integrate motorized window coverings and customize their clients’ experiences. The Somfy Synergy API is publicly available and forms the foundation of new Somfy drivers for Control4, Crestron and Savant.
The Synergy API requires the Somfy Connect™ Universal Automation Interface (UAI) for integration with Somfy Digital Network™ (SDN) systems or the Somfy myLink™ WiFi to RTS Interface for Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) systems.
The Somfy Synergy API joins a long list of Somfy integration devices and controls, including Z-Wave®, ZigBee®, Serial, Dry Contact and IP interfaces. These options mean Somfy motors can work with any size project and with a wide variety of automation systems. This improved integration allows users to experience the benefits of motorized window coverings for residential homes and commercial buildings, including energy saving, protection, privacy and convenience.
“Adding motorized shading is the perfect way to complete the home automation puzzle, and now it’s even easier with the Somfy Synergy API,” Murphy said.
