Case Study

Case Studies | October 2016

Somfy evolves home automation with Vodafone IoT Logo

Somfy is a French multinational company which has led Spain’s smart home market for over 30 years and is committed to bringing the digital revolution into homes in more than 60 countries.

Somfy evolves home automation with Vodafone IoT

Business Need

TaHoma® is a wireless, multi-protocol service with a single intuitive interface which brings together all the devices installed in a house and allows users to control them from a smartphone, tablet or computer. For many residences, Internet access using fibre or digital subscriber line (DSL) infrastructure may be not be available due to location, or simply not installed due to second and third homes not being occupied for a large part of the year.


The Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform overcomes these coverage problems by providing reliable and consistent connectivity. Vodafone provides a small pre-configured router exclusively for Somfy which is automatically activated and connected to Internet roaming, allowing the home to be controlled from any location, especially in second homes where remote control is an added value.

Business Benefits

  • Simple plug-and-play solution, automatic and pre-configured connectivity
  • Generation of alerts activated by sensors and programmable events, enabling the prevention of damage and early decision-making
  • Simplicity of relationship and management with Vodafone IoT
  • Full coverage thanks to Vodafone’s network and its managed connectivity service
"The future lies in making things possible from the mobile we always carry with us and, thanks to Vodafone IoT, our customers can do this more easily and at a reasonable price.”

Architect, Somfy España
