Wall-Mounted Controls for Motorised Shutters, Blinds & Awnings

While handheld remote controls are convenient and familiar, they do come with a certain tendency to get misplaced. This is a non-issue when it comes to wall-mounted controllers for your automatic awnings, blinds, or shutters. We offer smart setup options, allowing a wall-mounted switch to efficiently manage one or multiple blinds, shutters, or awnings.

To enhance usability, we can colour-code the controls or wall mounts to clearly distinguish their functions. Additionally, you have the freedom to select the outer frame colour that best compliments your wall decor.


For our business clients, individual controllers in each room have proven to be highly effective. In addition, having a manager-level controller located near the main door facilitates the seamless closing of all shutters or blinds with a single touch at the end of the day, streamlining operations.

Control your Blinds via Remote

Handheld remote controls are a ubiquitous and user-friendly way to manage automatic blinds, awnings and shutters, making them our most popular choice. Somfy offers a variety of styles to complement your decor, but the convenience of these remote controls extends far beyond their familiarity:

Somfy handheld remotes can be programmed to operate a single window covering or a group of them, providing tailored control. Effortlessly manage multiple blinds, awnings or shutters with the simple touch of a button. These remotes are especially handy when you’re in a hurry to leave the house or when unexpected weather changes require swift adjustments.

What is Somfy compatible with?

Somfy is designed for versatility and seamlessly integrates with a wide range of automation systems, including Control4, Crestron, Savant, Elan, RTI, URC, Brilliant Tech, and many others. With Somfy, you have the flexibility to control your Somfy-powered solutions using any Alexa-enabled or Google Home device, enhancing the convenience and accessibility of your automation experience.

Does Somfy need a hub?

Yes. If you want to enable mobile or voice control for your blinds, you’ll need to invest in a Somfy Hub in addition to your Somfy electric blinds. Ensure you have a robust and reliable internet connection covering your entire home for optimal functionality.

How does Somfy work?

It’s straightforward. When you press a button on the remote control or wireless wall switch or via a smartphone or voice command, a radio wave signal is emitted, effortlessly prompting the movement of any motorised interior or exterior window covering. There’s no need to precisely point or aim the transmitter, as RTS is omnidirectional and functions within a range of up to 65 feet.

Are Somfy motors reliable?

Yes. In our experience working in the smart home space, Somfy motors are highly durable and offer an extended lifespan with regular use. The longevity of a Somfy motor is strongly linked to proper application, correct installation, and appropriate use. For instance, if a motor that is either too heavy or too light is employed for your specific application, it can impact the expected lifespan.


That’s why their application with blinds is best left to experienced installers like those at Blinds Narellan, the smart home automation experts Sydney’s South.
