The story of a forward-thinking brand
A pioneering spirit
In Cluses, at the foot of Mont Blanc, Somfy* develops the first tubular motor, marking the end of crank handle and ushering in electric roller shutters, screens, awnings and blinds. Our story begins in France, Germany and Sweden, where the company already has subsidiaries. The adventure has begun!
*Société d’Outillage et de Mécanique de Faucigny (Mechanical Tooling Company of Faucigny).
Tonight, Somfy is on TV!
Somfy's first television campaign was broadcast prime time on France’s Canal +, but by 2005, the campaigns become international. Somfy goes from a brand reserved for professionals to an end-users brand.
Long live Radio!
Somfy integrates radio technology into its motors. Thanks to RTS (Somfy Radio Technology), roller shutters, screens, awnings and blinds can now be operated using a remote control. An additional advantage of radio technology is that a single remote can be used to control multiple products. It’s so easy, it’s Somfy!
From roller shutters... to the whole house
The brand begins to motorise garage doors and gates as well. It also acquires the company, Domis, a designer of wireless alarm systems. At the dawn of the new millennium, Somfy products are able to control all openings in the home as well as its security. Simple and accessible wireless home automation was born.
First partnerships with other brands
Somfy signs the first home automation alliance with Velux and launches io-homecontrol, the wireless two-way radio protocol. It’s now possible to control Somfy and Velux equipment using the same remote control and check that everything is running smoothly with the feedback function.
Controlling your home is easy with TaHoma!
100% cloud, 100% radio, 100% open: the TaHoma interface arrives on your computers and smartphones to help you easily control your home. More than 200 compatible devices are now able to communicate and interact!
Somfy acquires two major names in connected devices: MyFox and Okidokeys; and, with them, develops products to expand its range of home equipment. Three flagship products are launched: the connected door lock, the connected thermostat and the Somfy One, a camera with a built-in alarm.
Expansion accelerates with the "So Open with Somfy" programme
Heating, light, music and virtual assistants... Somfy expands its partnership programme to enrich the connected home experience. In June, the brand opens its APIs to developers for even more freedom.
