Insolroll motorized window shade controlates walls of buildings or houses so you don't have to be right in front of your shade to operate it like you would with a TV remote using infrared signal. RTS is offered with a variety of control options such as hand-held, wall switches, app control and voice control.

Shade control flexibility

  • Mix and match controls as you wish
  • Build a home automation system gradually. Start with a motorized patio shade, then add interior shades later. If you go big, you can also integrate your RTS motorized shades with third-party home automation systems.
  • RTS adapts easily to changes in your interior layout–add control points or move them at will.
  • Somfy's "my" function, programs preferred position for shades so they can be easily moved with the touch of a button.
