The Somfy Altus RS 50 IO is an IO motor with integrated receiver for roller shutters and is a perfect replacement for the Altus 40/17 RTS

If you replace your Altus RTS with this motor, you can transfer the adapter set and place the motor in the existing support.

Even the power cable can be used again, so unplug it from the motor and connect it to the new one.

However, you will need a new remote control

You can find one in the "related products".

The big advantage of replacing an RTS motor by its IO successor is that the motor can give feedback.

This allows for better remote assistance in case of problems.

Furthermore, when using the Tahoma Switch you can control the motor via an app - even from your work or vacation address.

With no subscription fees.
