General information

Solar Entrance Depth Management 

  • During active sun tracking periods, animeo IPu2019s Solar Entrance Depth Management feature will adjust and maintain the solar shade height to limit the distance that sunlight enters the space. This protects furnishings, maximizes daylight availability and minimizes glare on work surfaces and computer screens.

Control Versatility 

  • Programmable wall-mounted keypads, wireless controls and virtual keypads provide occupants control over nearby window coverings. animeo IP can override manual occupant commands during specific time periods (ex: east façade from 8 AM – 12 PM) to keep the building running as efficiently as possible, providing just the right balance of manual and automated control.


  • animeo IP is compatible with existing Somfy Digital Network™ (SDN) installations as well as wind, sun and weather sensors, in-wall keypads and wireless sensors, and third party building management systems.

Streamlined Commissioning Process 

  • Auto-discovery of motors and switches expedites installation while drag-and-drop configuration simplifies commissioning.

Sensor Offering

  • A variety of Somfy weather sensors are compatible with animeo IP, including rain, wind, sun and temperature sensors. Sensor configuration and setup is easy using animeo IPu2019s intuitive user interface.
