Somfy is a global leader in the automatic control of openings and closures in homes and buildings. We have over 6800+ homes worldwide and operate in over 10 countries.
We started due to the frustration and inconvenience of not being able to enjoy your home. We believe a home is more than just an investment but a sanctuary where you can feel free and be yourself. It’s a sanctuary where you can relax and let all the worries of the day pass. Neocontrol promises to make those rare special moments such as a candlelight dinner, be an everyday adventure.
