Making 
complex building automation simpler together

Stay flexible

Home automation is all the rage now, and for some time it has no longer been only for large-scale projects. In the private sector, too, developers are increasingly embracing the benefits that features such as automated roller shutters or blinds bring them. As an architect or professional planner you are always facing the same challenges: your solutions are called upon to be energy-efficient and convenient, high-quality and also impressively cost-effective. It is crucial for people to be able to rely on high quality standards that permit you and your customers the maximum possible degree of flexibility as well as security in terms of planning and investment.

As one of the leading suppliers of drive and control systems, in partnership with other committed companies we have already made great strides towards developing a standard along these lines.

SMI: Open to everything

The solution that many European manufacturers are already putting their faith in: SMI (Standard Motor Interface) – a standard interface for electronic drives for the roller shutter and sun protection sector. The advantage of SMI drives: They are compatible with one another and are also extremely easy to integrate into building automation networks, e.g. KNX.

Between 8 and 16 drives can be connected in parallel depending on the application. This significantly reduces the equipment cost – and by extension also the overall costs. The drive and control unit are connected via a 5-core lead that ensures a reliable power supply and data transfer – over a distance of up to 350 metres. It is no problem to move the controlled unit with precision to intermediate positions, and querying its current position is likewise straightforward.

With SMI you are putting your faith in a practical, economical and robust system that satisfies the most stringent criteria for convenience and energy efficiency – it's as simple as that!
