Just as there is a choice in the type of application being motorized, there is also a choice in how the window covering is powered. This decision is based primarily on the user's preferences but also depends on the motor used in the installation, as each motor type has specific power requirements. Somfy's family of motors are classified into three different power types to assist in choosing the best option for your project.
WireFree Battery Powered Motor
Benefits of WireFree Motor Option
No Wires to Conceal
No Need for an Electrician
Patented Technology Extends Battery Life
Motor is Powered by Lithium Batteries
Perfect for Situations Where Access to Electrical Wiring is not Possible such as: Out of Reach Windows
Great Solution for Smaller Size Window Coverings (not wider than 96")
Ideal for Projects With a Smaller Number of Motorized Window Coverings
Provides for Simplified Battery Replacement (double AA lithium batteries)
WireFree Solar Pack Kit and Accessories - Energy Saving solutions
The new WireFree Solar Pack Kit harnesses renewable solar energy to power WireFree Motorized Window Coverings. The solar panel is mounted on the inside of the window facing outward. It then collects energy from the sun and converts sun energy to electrical energy and changes the battery within the battery tube connected via the "Y" harness. The batter then powers any motorized window covering using a WireFree Motor.
Plug-in Motor for Power
Low Voltage Plug-in Power Options (DC Motor)
Simplified Maintenance-free Operation
Simply plugs into standard wall electrical outlets
Wire has to be concealed
Electrician may be needed. If existing electrical outlets are in the proper location, the system simply plugs in; otherwise an electrician will be needed for additional receptacle placement.
DC Plug-in Motors require a transformer, similar to a laptop or cell phone charger. The transformer then simply plugs into the wall.
In-Wall Wired Power for Motor
High Voltage Power Options (AC Motor)
AC Plug-in Motors
AC In-Wall Wired Motors are wired directly to a jucction box (electrican may be required)
Controlled with a wall switch
Retractable Awning Motors
