Expansion module for BFT operators with U-Link platform for wirelessly integrating motors into a Somfy Thaoma "Connected Home" automation network. It controls operators for sliding and swing gates, as well as garage door motors. It handles Start, Open and Close commands. The motor still receives commands from BFT remote controls. The motor receiver remains active and still stores the standard number of BFT remote controls. It receives commands from Somfy iO two-way and iO one-way remote controls. It can manage an unlimited number of remote controls via the iO two-way protocol and up to 10 iO one-way remote controls. It integrates with the Tahoma User Interface and receives commands from it and displays the position of the gate. It can be paired with the Somfy Tahoma device in just a few simple steps.
A single communication platform for all types of control units and receivers. The innovative interconnectivity systems developed by Bft along with wireless connection solutions in the field of access point automation become integrated through the new U-link system communication protocol. A technology designed and developed to operate using specific gateways for any type of physical media and communication protocol. To fully facilitate installers in creating the system and in maintenance, Bft can offer solutions based on Bluetooth transmission systems in local and TCP/IP environments for remote connection. U-Link ensures an absolutely stable standard, correct communication, as well as secure data protection thanks to two levels of encryption, offered by the data encryption system and password of the protocol and by the underlying communication system. - U-Link is a technological platform that forms the heart of Bft products - U-link uses an open approach: by changing the B-Eba, Bft proprietary gateway, it is possible to adapt to many different communication languages - U-link is flexible: it can work with or without a network connection, depending on the B-Eba gateway installed - U-Link enables remote maintenance of the products thanks to two-way communication - U-link is scalable: an infinite number of objects can be added to a U-link network - U-Link allows the creation of groups of products: various B-Ebas can be grouped to allow individual or group control of the associated products U-link is an innovation that turns products into Bft solutions.
