Somfy Introduces the Dimmable LED RTS Light Kit to Expand Use of Outdoor Living Space

Somfy’s New Awning Accessory Extends Time Outside Past Sundown

Somfy Systems, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of tubular motors for interior and exterior window coverings, announces the launch of the Dimmable LED RTS Light Kit, a convenient lighting solution for awnings and pergolas.

"Now your outdoor space doesn't have to be abandoned at night," said Tom Murphy, Chief Operating Officer of Somfy North America. "With the Dimmable LED RTS Light Kit your backyard can become your favorite nightlife spot."
Easy to install and convenient to operate, the light kit can be controlled with the same remote used to operate Somfy motorized awnings. App control is also offered through the Somfy myLink™, available for smartphones and tablets.
The Dimmable LED RTS Light Kit is highly customizable to deliver the perfect outdoor experience. Choose between warm and cool white and enjoy the 12 different levels of brightness, plus the ability to set a preferred "my" setting.
Available as a turn-key kit that can control up to six Somfy LED light strips, the lighting kit is easy to install quickly in both new and existing Somfy motorized installations without the need for an electrician. LED bars can be mounted on top of the awning arms for ambient light or facing down for stronger light, depending on preference.
Combine the Dimmable LED RTS Light Kit with Somfy's Infrared RTS Heat Receiver to create the perfect outdoor oasis, whether it's a bright afternoon or a late night. Also perfect for restaurants and hotels, providing extra space outdoors and increasing sitting capacity year round.
