How to program the new Somfy RS 100 IO tubular motor for roller shutters

If you want the best possible roller shutter motor on the market, you need the Somfy RS 100 IO.

This motor has a lot of new functions that make this motor easier to use and a lot more silent.

Because it’s completely different from the other IO and RTS motors, even the programming sequence is different.
So how do you program this motor? That can be seen in the video below:

If you are looking for the absolute best that Somfy has to offer in terms of roller shutter motors, you need to look at the Somfy Oximo IO.

– Frost detection
– Obstacle detection

How to program a Somfy RTS motor

When you get a new Somfy motor, it will be in the factory settings.

This means you still have to:
– link a remote control
– check if the direction in which is goes is correct (so if up is really up and vice versa)
– set the upper limit
– set the lower limit
– memorise the settings

All these steps are explained in this video:

How to reset the Somfy Oximo IO motor

Sometimes, things don’t work out as planned.

When that happens during the programming sequence of the Oximo IO, it’s often best to start from scratch.

And that means starting from the factory settings.

In this video, you can see how you can get back to the factory settings. Please note that you always need a remote control to get there. In this video a Smoove Origin IO is used.
