What is SOMA Connect?

SOMA Connect can be used to control the SOMA Smart Shades and the SOMA Tilt devices through your favourite voice assistant or home automation platform.

SOMA Connect U1

We have just released a new SOMA Connect Bridge which has totally custom (non-Raspberry Pi) hardware made completely by SOMA which has the same functionality as the previous Raspberry Pi based model (integrations with Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, SmartThings, IFTTT, etc). The SOMA Connect U1 is a USB stick which supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. You can pair up to 10 SOMA Smart Shades / SOMA Tilt devices with one SOMA Connect U1.

Raspberry Pi software

If you own a Raspberry Pi then you can run SOMA Connect software on it. Download and installation guide can be found here.

          Brilliant product with exceptional after sales service

          A little to big

          Great product, works just as it should dry easy to set up,
          but it’s just too big

          SOMA Connect software + hardware bundle

          Jose de Jesus Ramirez Garza
          Manual option to open and close

          The product is great, solar panel option is appreciate, the noise of the motor is aceptable, Good quality of the materials of the product, easy connectivity with Apple homekit, however something that could be nice to have is an option to open and close manually.
