Somfy, the world leader in window and door automation, and Netatmo, a leading French smart home company, announce a compatibility between SOMFY Group’s Connectivity Platform TaHoma® and Netatmo devices to enable users to better manage their thermal comfort and make energy savings and to improve the indoor air quality of homes.
Manage your environment from anywhere
Wouldn't it be great if you could measure your environment data to manage it better? The Netatmo Air Quality Monitor and the Weather Station give you real-time environment readings on your smartphone.
In an apartment: Let our Smart Air Quality Monitor help simplify your daily life and improve your indoor environment.
In a house: Whether inside, in your garden or on your terrace, the Netatmo Smart Home Weather Station accurately measures your indoor and outdoor environment to improve your comfort. Perfect for getting local weather data, the Smart Home Weather Station is the ultimate tool for planning your outdoor activities.
Improve thermal comfort thanks to the weather station and automatic shutters
With the increase in summer heat waves, thermal comfort management has become essential. Thanks to the temperature sensor of Netatmo Smart Weather Station, users can program in their TaHoma® App the appropriate scenario to improve thermal comfort in summer by avoiding overheating and in winter by benefiting from the natural heat of the sun. In summer, when the outside temperature becomes too high, roller shutters motorized by Somfy close automatically to keep the house cool. In winter, they open to take advantage of the sun's free heat and warm the house, then close at nightfall to keep the warmth in.
Manage air quality by automating the opening of motorized windows
As indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air*, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends airing the home twice a day for 10 minutes. Although people are becoming increasingly aware of this recommendation, many don't apply it, either for lack of time or fear of intrusion.
The perfect automation between TaHoma® and Netatmo allows them to enjoy their time at their place without having to care when to open the window, it’s done smartly automatically.
*According to Environmental Protection Agency
When the level of CO2 or humidity detected by Netatmo devices (Weather station or Indoor Air Quality Monitor) becomes critical, windows motorized with SOMFY Group’s motorization solutions open automatically to renew and refresh the air. It can also close automatically after refreshment. Users are notified in their TaHoma® App.
« Thermal comfort and indoor air quality are becoming major concerns more than ever. Our partnership with Netatmo will enable us to offer users a simplified, unified experience of connected housing. Somfy has made openness and interoperability a pillar of its strategy with the launch of the "So Open" program in 2018. Our TaHoma® solution is compatible with nearly 300 types of home products, and today we are proud to expand this ecosystem with Netatmo », said Benedicte SIMOND, Head of Products and Services of SOMFY Group.
« Around the world, a host of users are taking care of their indoor air quality, anticipating their outdoor activities or deciding what clothes to wear today thanks to the Smart Weather Station or the Indoor Air Quality Monitor. As part of the automation process, these invaluable sensors also enable the smart home to become a truly intelligent, more comfortable and more energy-efficient home. Netatmo is proud to be contributing to this evolution in usage, both through its own actions and through its valuable collaborations. », said Audrey Vaudo, head of Product Marketing at Netatmo.
