The Benefits of Somfy Motorised Blinds & Awnings


With the simple touch of a button you can move your awning, sunscreen or blind to whatever position you like. You can also add sensors and timers so your products work for you even when you’re not at home for added security.

Energy Efficiency

Reduce your energy usage by controlling the amount of heat and light entering your home.

Longer Lifespan

Somfy’s smooth and controlled operation ensures both maximum functionality and a longer lifespan of their products. Manual operation can damage blinds and awnings through excessive force or improper use.


Loose cords and chains are a danger to young children. With Somfy automated awnings, sunscreens and external blinds, the cords and chains are completely removed, providing peace of mind for you, and a safer environment for your family.

Quiet and Discreet

Somfy's world leading motors are fully concealed within the awning or sunscreen. With the simple press of the remote control, or Somfy myLink app on your smartphone, you will enjoy the ambience and impress your guests with a quiet and sophisticated automated sun protection system. Internal furnishings include the Altus 50 RTS, a classic multi-purpose unit to motorise a host of indoor products. Up, down and stop functions, and can be pre-programmed with "my" favourite position.



Range: Dedicated to interior spaces.



Lets you program a preferred position of your blinds so that you can access that favourite position every time at a simple press of "my" button. Set it once and use it as much as you like!



These independent motors run on batteries with 1 to 5 years of battery life depending on usage. You don't need an electrical connection to switch to motorised blinds!

So happy with the service and quality. My panel glide suits my french doors and windows perfectly. The shutters in my bedrooms look amazing. Thank you to the team at Lakeview. Installed on time, everytime.

We asked for a quote, the sales rep came to our home and quoted on the spot. We already had several blinds from Lakeview, and wanted the same quality. The installation date was met and the actual installation was hassle free.

Lakeview Blinds at Warners Bay put blinds in our new home. I am very happy with the service and the time we were told it would take. Thank you very much, it was just the last touch to making our home look great.

This business provided me with contacts for an alternate product even though at this point, it did not involve a sale for them. I would definitely consider using them in the future for blind and shutter products.

5 Star review
I recommend Lakeview Blinds to all my friends and family. Each time I have a visitor they always complement the beautiful shutters in my house! You couldn't beat the service unless it was with the quality of the shutters! My daughter has just recently ordered some for her own house because she loved mine so much.
