1. This is how you adjust the Somfy RS100's end points, and it's different from other motors.

    If your end points are not right on an RS100 motor, so the shutter runs too far up. Or stops at the bottom too early. Then you can adjust those points.

    With the RS100 this is done in a different way, because you have to set the motor in the middle first.

    With an Oximo RTS or IO, for example, you have to let it run all the way to the end point.

    And that is not always possible, because if the roller shutter were to run too far upwards, damage could occur.

    You don't want that and, as a result, you can then only reset the motor and then reset everything.

    Much more work.


    With the Oximo RTS and IO, adjusting is only possible if the end points are set manually, with the RS100 IO, adjusting is always possible.

    You can let the IO and RTS roller shutter motors adjust themselves,

    Here it is - the new Somfy code keyboard in the RTS version.


    Somfy RTS codeklavier nieuwe uitvoering 2023


    Nicer design

    The first thing that stands out is the new design. It looks a lot nicer than its predecessor and finished in stylish black.

    The new one is a bit longer than the old keypad, but still about the same width.

    So it is now 70 mm wide and 120 mm high.



    Mounting and screw holes


    Funnily enough, the screw holes on the back are just the opposite, so 2 below and one above for the new one and 2 above and 1 below for the old one.

  3. The Two Versions of Smoove RS100 IO


    Until recently, there was only one special Smoove RS100 IO that can switch a Somfy RS100 motor to its silent mode. Now we have two versions of Smoove RS100 IO. The current version has item number 1811321 and the latest version is 1811717.

    The Smoove RS100 IO-1811321 can be turned off. It also has pressure-sensitive buttons that make programming impossible, so you need to have a separate transmitter for programming. Flipping the switch on this version puts you into silent mode.

    With the release of Smoove RS100 IO-1811717, new features have been added. This version

  4. Programming the Somfy Orea RTS - from start to finish

    Programming the Somfy Orea RTS - from start to finish

    An Orea RTS motor that comes straight out of the box, needs to be programmed.

    This means that:

    • A remote control will be linked
    • The roll out direction will be set
    • End limits will be programmed

    This ensures that the motor rolls in the right direction and stops at the right position.

    As an Orea motor can not have the upper limit set in manual mode, the motor is only suitable for  cassette awnings.

    It also means that the standard way of programming an RTS motor does not apply.

  10. Somfy and Apple Homekit - which products are compatible and how?

    Somfy have announced compatibility with Apple Homekit, which allows you to control Somfy products directly through Apple.

    You can watch the video below to see the whole story or continue to read below the video.



    So, how does the integration work?

    Well, you need a couple of things:

    • the product you want to add needs to be programmed and working
    • the product you want to control through the app, needs to be linked to Tahoma

    So a Tahoma (Switch) is needed as a bridge between Apple Homekit and the Somfy products you want to control.

    You'd think that you'd then be able to control any Somfy product, but that's not the case.

    RTS products can not be controlled
