Extron has announced its collaboration with Somfy, combing Extron’s control capabilities with Somfy’s powered products for smart building projects. The new partnership gives facility managers and AV professionals a simple installation and setup.
“We are very excited to offer our customers all the advantages of the Somfy motorized window covering controls using the simplicity of our Extron control system products,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “By working with Somfy, we know that our customers are getting a truly reliable, convenient, and integrated experience.”
The integration of Somfy powered products and Extron control panels allows end-users to access more smart features. Somfy powered products can work in concert with an occupancy sensor, providing touch-free automatic control. The automation can raise the shades and projection screen when a room is no longer in use or can lower the appropriate shades in preparation for a presentation based on lighting levels.
“At Somfy we are committed to simplifying smart-building control and elevating the room experience for the specifiers and installers, as well as for the people in the space,” said, Brittany Mier y Terán, Partnerships and Custom Integration Channel Manager, Somfy North America. “We are excited to work with Extron – a leader in AV Technology – to bring Somfy powered product control together with touchpanel and AV integration.”
