WIŚNIOWSKI’S latest MOTO drive unit powered by Somfy has just debuted on the market. It is an important project, which has already received the TopBuilder award in the “Product of the Year 2019” category. MOTO is not just a product, but a symbol of the changed approach in the home products sector.
The MOTO garage door drive unit is a result of our cooperation with Somfy – a global leader in the area of smart control and automation solutions. Following the success of the first joint project, the METRO drive, we decided to go a step further and come up with a product that would fill the niche of inexpensive automating operating units for garage doors.
Minimalism and elegance
We fitted all the major functionalities of a garage door drive unit in a minimalist and elegant housing. The MOTO can be controlled with transmitters and is compatible with photocells, a signal light, and a wall switch for manual control. The MOTO drive unit can also be operated in case of a power outage if it is fitted with an emergency power supply battery. Other advantages of the drive unit include quick and easy parameter setup and super fast operation in less than 60 seconds of installation. Thanks to quiet and smooth operation, the drive unit will perform well in garages adjacent to buildings, even directly to bedrooms. Importantly, the MOTO drive unit is manufactured in Europe.
“After the success of the first METRO drive unit, which quickly turned out to be a best-seller on the market, we decided to design a product that would meet the needs of our customers looking for home solutions at bargain prices. Thanks to our cooperation with Somfy, we created two products for different types of customers, sharing a refined form and fulfilling the requirements of even the most demanding users. Wiśniowski and Somfy both know their customers well and by joining forces, were able to design a perfect product,” says Marcin Strzelec, Manager of the Garage and Industrial Doors, Automatic Operating Units and Smart Technologies product groups at WIŚNIOWSKI.
“The MOTO drive unit is an ideal addition to WIŚNIOWSKI’s diverse product range and thanks to the Somfy solutions, it provides comfort of control and use based on many years of experience on the global market. The RTS technology used by this drive unit is valued by fitters and individual users for its reliability and potential for expanding the home automation system,” says Piotr Bębenista, Key Account Manager at Somfy Polska.
The culmination of our cooperation will be a joint speech at the 10th Congress of Polish Joinery, with WIŚNIOWSKI and Somfy as the Strategic Partners. The Congress will be attended by Witold Jankowski, PhD – president of the ICAN Institute, editor-in-chief of the Harvard Business Review Polska. The event is scheduled to be held on 23 and 24 May in Jachranka near Warsaw.
