Dayton, NJ – Somfy is the world’s largest manufacturer of Radio controlled (Radio Technology Somfy® RTS) motors for interior and exterior window coverings. The NEW Z-Wave RTS Interface (ZRTSI) will now enable users of Z-Wave technology to control the widest range of Radio controlled motors for interior and exterior window coverings.
The ZRTSI is a Z-Wave bridge controller that resides as a node within a designated Z-Wave control network. The device receives Z-Wave transmissions and coverts them to motor control commands for Somfy’s full range of interior and exterior RTS wireless controlled motors. Each ZRTSI is plugged into an active electrical receptacle and has sixteen (16) virtual Z-Wave nodes that correspond to sixteen (16) RTS channels. Each channel can control one individual or one group of RTS motorized window coverings.
The ZRTSI is Z-Wave certified pending and can be controlled by all Z-Wave certified controllers. Z-Wave control dealers now have the opportunity to expand their product offering to include the integration of a wide range of wireless controlled motorized window coverings.
