Somfy's IZYMO a new range of wireless micro-modules developed by Somfy that uses the wireless protocol io-homecontrol to improve living comfort and enrich the devices already present in the home with new features.
Somfy turns 50 and has always been one of the top names in the field of home automation with the ability to integrate and collaborate with open standards and partnerships at the center: in this perspective IZYMO was born, the new range of wireless micro-modules that transforms lights and household electrical appliances in smart and connected devices, switches in remote controls. IZYMO can be positioned behind the switch, next to the light source or behind the socket of the domestic appliance.With this solution it is possible to create and enjoy various scenarios, for example, with a centralized remote control it is possible to close all the shutters with just one click without having to close them one by one before leaving the house.
For the safety of the whole family, in the same way, from the smartphone it is possible to control the status of the lights and the closing of the shutters also remotely. And again, while on vacation, you can simulate your presence at home by turning on / off the entrance lights at certain times.
With IZYMO it is possible to change the position of the switches to transfer them to the right places, all without having to foresee the passage of wires and without intervening on the walls of the house: the
IZYMO compatible with TaHoma, the smart home solution that allows the control of the installed Somfy and many other accessories.
There are currently 3 modules available
- The IZYMO transmitter allows you to transform a switch or button into an io-homecontrol transmitter (lighting or roller shutter). It also allows you to launch a scenario programmed in the TaHoma interface from each button. On board it has a 3V CR2430 battery
- The IZYMO SHUTTER RECEIV micromoduleER io a radio receiver that allows you to control a wired motor for roller shutters. The control takes place via io-homecontrol radio transmitters and / or roller shutter switch.
- The IZYMO ON-OFF RECEIVER io micromodule a radio receiver that allows you to drive all types of lamps or loads by turning them on and off. The control takes place via radio transmitters or homecontrol and / or rocker switch (s) or push-button (s).
The protocol io-homecontrol su on which the 3 devices are based IZYMO uses a Somfy patent that uses power cables as radio antennas and guarantees an optimal and constant range. Three radio frequencies are scanned between 868 MHz and 870 MHz. A 128 bit symmetric encryption key allows you to authenticate the origin of each command and everything works in a field of about 20 meters in the case of concrete / brick constructions and within about 200 meters in free field.
List prices start from 78 to 132 Euros. For more information, visit the Somfy website.
