With Homey, controlling sunscreens, blinds and roller blinds from your smartphone is easier than ever. Homey connects to a whole range of wirelessly controlled motors, and makes them available in the Homey App for Android or iOS.
Homey supports wireless blinds of many brands. Motors from Somfy RTS, Brel, Bofu and Forest are supported, which are found in solutions from SUNWAY (Brel, Somfy and Bofu motors), Verano (Somfy motors) and many others.
For motorized blinds that are controlled through a wired switch, you can install a ‘roller shutter’. Roller shutters are modules that control motors. Kind of like dimmers, but for motors instead of lightbulbs. Qubino, Fibaro and KlikAanKlikuit are brands that make roller shutters – and all of them work with Homey.
After adding your blinds to Homey, you can easily control them from anywhere in the world using the Homey Smartphone App. You can also include them in your own scenarios to move them automatically, for instance when waking up. For more information about automated blinds and Homey, read our blog post on the subject.
