The Somfy Clever Tilt Motor allows users to automate their existing 2-inch to 2.5-inch blinds and integrate them into their smart home. The kit includes seven adapters for mounting the drive motor to a blind’s tilt rod, three sets of adapters for securing the drive motor in a blind’s head rail, and a comprehensive instruction booklet.

The second is an eight-AA battery reloadable battery tube.A handheld remote control is also available from Somfy. All of the above can be purchased as part of a kit for motorizing one to four shades.
