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.
It’s the improved version of the Oximo RTS and comes packed with:
– Bi-directional remote signal for feedback and motor status relay
– Frost detection
– Obstacle detection
Watch the video below to see the motor and the discussion of all the benefits:
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:
When you want to add more comfort or functionality to your RTS motor, you can add an additional remote or a timer.
This allows you to control your motor from more than one location, or to automatically activate your motor and make your blind or shutter open or close at a pre set time.
How you can add an additional control to your Somfy RTS motor is explained in the video below:
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.

The Somfy Oximo IO is currently Somfy’s most advanced tubular motor for roller shutters.
With a 1-way remote control, you can program the motor just like you would with an RTS motor.
How that’s done, is shown in the video below:
