A new open API program as part as the “So Open with Somfy” strategy
SOMFY's ambition is to develop new solutions that provide homes with more safety, energy efficiency and comfort, and to make them as accessible as possible. This accessibility implies interoperability between the systems available on the market and SOMFY has made this one of the pillars of its smart home development strategy.
“The smart home market is complex, bringing together the historical players in home automation, agile IoT entrepreneurs and leading Internet players. In order to ensure our development in this market, we are convinced that the key is to be at the heart of the home with the multi‐brand management of essential domestic equipment, but also to make smart home opportunities accessible to as many people as possible by opening up our ecosystem to other ecosystems of objects or services,”
Explains Jean Guillaume Despature, Chairman of SOMFY.
Application developers will now have access to SOMFY solutions through a unified platform, starting with access to SOMFY motorized roller shutters associated with SOMFY Smart Home solutions (TaHoma and Connexoon).
The security range Somfy Protect, the Somfy Connected Thermostat and Connected Doorlock as the well as Somfy motorization for interior blinds should follow during summer.
