What is the difference between a wired control system and a radio system?
In a wired system, the control is connected to the motor by electric wires which transmit your commands to the motor. This is the traditional home automation solution. In this case, the control unit is fixed near the motor (beside the window, for instance, for a motorized blind). In the radio system, the commands are transmitted by radio waves. There is no electric wiring between the motor and the control. The control is mobile, and you can control your roller blind within a radius of up to 20 metres, even through a wall. Installation is quicker too, as you only need to plug the motor straight into the power outlet and operate with the remote. This is the neat, simple home automation solution. Note: with Somfy, a wired system can always be upgraded to a radio installation.
