What is the “My Button”?

The “My Button” on Somfy remote controls has two purposes. It is a stop button when the shades are in motion. But for programming purposes, it is what I call a favorite position button.

When the “My Button” is programmed for your needs, you can take the shade to the most used position, other than the top or bottom limit, at the touch of a button. Please watch the video to see how it can be used.

There is one caution about using the “My Button”. If you press the My Button for longer than a second or so, you run the risk of changing the programming. So, just remember, when using the Somfy Remote Control, just tap the button you wish to use.

“My Button” Somfy Remote Control

Also, please remember that when programming a multi-channel remote control, the channel number must correspond to the shade you are trying to program. In other words, if you were trying to program the “My Button” for the shade to the far left, you need to be in channel ONE. If not, you run the risk of programming the wrong shade. It is possible to have the remote control in the ALL position, meaning you would accidentally reprogram all the shades at once, instead of the one you intended to do.

Programming is not overly complicated, but remember that working with a true professional will help you design your programming to meet your needs. You can over-program your shades easily. When we meet with you, we will determine how you plan to use your shades, so we can make it as simple as possible for you. We can also provide tools for automation, so you don’t ever have to lift a finger. So many options!!! Call us to discuss.
