animeo® IP Building Controller
Automated solar shade management gets even more of an upgrade with Somfy’s animeo® IP Building Controller. Featuring built-in applications to manage schedules, sun tracking and programmable settings, the animeo® helps reduce dependency on electric lights and keeps occupants comfortable by raising or lowering shades automatically based on current weather conditions, as detected by the system’s sensors.
The animeo® system is easy to operate and can handle up to 200 individual motors before needing a sub-controller to expand the capacity, making it a great choice for buildings of all sizes. While the system facilitates total shading automation, it’s flexible enough to allow users to manually override auto settings with a remote, switch, desktop app or mobile device. Most importantly, the animeo® integrates with building automation systems to decrease operating loads from lighting and/or HVAC.
