Draper Adds Zigbee Motors to Shade Lineup
Posted on Monday, September 26, 2022

(Spiceland, Ind.) – Experience a new level of performance and simplicity as Draper window shades are now powered by Somfy motors with built-in Zigbee technology. Draper window shades will feature both standard wired and battery powered Zigbee motors.

"Zigbee technology brings several advantages to the smart home environment," said Randy Reece, Draper director of AV sales and marketing. "It operates on a mesh network, so wireless control range can be expanded to suit each individual installation. It's also more stable than other wireless technologies and offers longer life for battery-operated shades."

Using Zigbee also opens the ability for better monitoring of shades as well as other smart devices on home networks.

The new Somfy Zigbee motors are available for the newly introduced FlexStyle™ shading system as well as the company's existing FlexShade line. Both lines feature hundreds of fabric color, texture, and openness choices from American weavers Phifer and Mermet USA, plus custom colors, patterns, and graphics.

To see the next step forward in window shade innovation, stop by booth 23081 at the 2022 CEDIA Expo, September 29-October 1 in Dallas, or go to
