Somfy automated blinds

After having automated blinds in my own home, I don’t think I could ever go back. They really are just so simple to use, and save me precious time each and every day
— Cal Stewart

Automated window treatments are available for a large number of our internal window covering solutions. Options include roller blinds, curtains and soft shades – each designed to offer style, flexibility and convenience for your home.

At Brax we choose Somfy® for of our home automation needs. As your local Geelong Somfy Expert, we are committed to providing our customers with the most up to date options, backed by professional advice and industry experience.


We get asked a lot why you should consider automating your blinds, so we’ve listed a few of the benefits you might not have thought about.

  1. Convenience – with the simple touch of a button you can move your blind or curtain to whatever position you like. You can also add sensors and timers, so your products work for you – from personal experience I can honestly say this is my favourite function of our automated blinds – I don’t have to go around and open and close them each day – we just set and forget, saving valuable time each and every day.

  2. Energy Efficiency – reduce your energy consumption by controlling the amount of direct sun and light entering your home. Keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter with automated blinds that are preset to open and close.

  3. Security - Automated blinds can increase the security of your home – when set on timers; they give the appearance of someone being home, even when you’re away on holidays.

  4. Safety– loose cords and chains pose a danger to young children and animals. With automated blinds and curtains, there are no cords or chains, providing a safer environment and peace of mind.

  5. Longer Lifespan – automated blinds ensure smooth, quiet operation ensuring maximum functionality and a longer lifespan of the product. Manual blinds are more likely to suffer damage through excessive force or improper use.

  6. Guaranteed to last – At Brax we choose Somfy for many of our automated blinds. We are members of the Somfy Expert alliance program and all products are backed by Somfy’s 5 year manufacturers guarantee.
