An automated solution to ease natural aeration of homes & buildings for a better health
Thanks to automation, the Somfy Air solution ensures the natural and safe daily ventilation of your homes, offering better air quality while maximising the energy efficiency of buildings.
Air quality is the first cause of human deaths in the world. Interior air quality is 2 to 8 times more polluted than outside air. It is recommended by the World Health Organization to aerate 10 minutes in the morning and the evening. But very few people are doing this for various and multiple reasons. To ease the renewal of interior air in homes and buildings, the Somfy Air solution provides an automated solution which open and close windows, in a secure mode, even if you're not here. The solution has three different levels of natural aeration depending on people's wishes. The first one will open or close the window according to a manual control, the second one with sensors, and the last one can manage the interior air quality & secured aeration. The windows are at all-time secured, as a sensor detects any intrusion attempt; and of course, the opening/closure of the window is made on a secured mode.
