Somfy Wins CE Pro BEST Award for Sonesse® 30 WireFree RTS Motor
Somfy Systems, Inc., the world’s largest manufacturer of tubular motors for interior and exterior window coverings, is honored to receive the CE Pro BEST Award for the Sonesse 30 WireFree (Li-ion) RTS motor. Somfy was on hand to accept the award from CE Pro in person at CEDIA Expo 2017, where Somfy exhibited motorized window covering and integration solutions for both interior and exterior applications.
“The Sonesse 30 WireFree (Li-ion) RTS was designed for silence and simplicity,” said Tom Murphy, Chief Operating Officer of Somfy North America. “Somfy is excited CE Pro recognizes the value of this innovative new motor.”
The Sonesse 30 WireFree (Li-ion) RTS is a powerful new addition to Somfy’s existing ultra-quiet Sonesse line of motors. It features a built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery to minimize maintenance. In addition to being quiet, the Sonesse 30 WireFree (Li-ion) RTS has a powerful lifting capacity, increasing the opportunity to motorize a wide range of shades and blinds.
"The BEST Awards offer an incredible glimpse into the future for the entire residential integration industry," says Jason Knott, editor-in-chief of CE Pro. "Some of the products and technologies that integrators now consider mainstays to their businesses made their first appearance in the market via the BEST Awards. These entries truly represent the cutting edge of technology."
All 179 entries were judged on innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer by a dozen credible industry leaders, along with the editors of CE Pro. Winners’ products and technologies will be featured in the November Issue of CE Pro magazine and posted to CEPro.com.
The Sonesse 30 WireFree (Li-ion) RTS joins the award-winning family of Sonesse ultra-quiet and ultra-powerful motors. In the past, Somfy’s Sonesse motor range has won multiple BEST awards from Commercial Integrator Magazine, as well as Technology Integrator’s EXC!TE Award. In addition to the new WireFree (Li-ion) RTS motor, Sonesse ULTRA 50 motors are currently available in AC, DC and RTS versions.
