Somfy Sends the Message with the RTS Repeater


Denver, CO NJ August 2007 - Somfy Systems, Inc. introduces an innovative product to extend the range of the standard Radio Technology Somfy® signal. The RTS Repeater receives the signal from a Telis or similar device and retransmits the signal to a RTS compatible motor or receiver. The RTS Repeater simply plugs into any 120V AC electrical outlet and should be placed at least halfway between the transmitting device such as a Telis hand -held remote and the receiving device, the motor.
Although RTS already has a range of 65 feet through a wall or 100 feet in open air, the RTS Repeater solves the challenge of transmitting the signal in particularly large rooms or areas. It ensures that all motorized shades and window coverings with RTS will receive the signal and respond according to their commands. And, as with all other Somfy motors and controls, it's backed by a full 5 year warranty.

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
