A friend of mine is in the process of building a home and requires a lot of outdoor sun shades. We have been trying to find a cost effective way to control them and get feedback of the position they are in. There are countless ways to get this kind of feedback but all of them are very costly. It seems like we’ve found the solution… Somfy has released a Z-WAVE interface which works with their ILT line of motors which give you status feedback and control into the Z-Wave environment and will enable optimized performance through Myro:Home touchscreen panels. The plug-in design also allows a simple connection to the ILT 2-way communicating motor head and can be setup in less than a minute. As an added bonus, the interface doesn’t require additional external power which keeps the energy footprint low too.
