The intelligent activation function enables you to automate the activation and deactivation of the system when you leave and arrive at your home.

Installation with Somfy Security Camera: activation and deactivation of the motion detection by your cameras
Installation with Somfy Home Alarm: activation and deactivation of your alarm
Installation with Somfy Home Alarm and Security Camera: activation and deactivation of your alarm (motion detection by your cameras included)

Attention: if the motion detection function has been deactivated in the camera settings, the shutter will only open and close during intelligent activation/deactivation and detection will remain inactive.

Somfy Home Alarm:
In the event of a Somfy Home Alarm installation, it is your badge which is detected and which automates activation or deactivation of the alarm according to your settings.
Intelligent activation works by identifying that your badge has entered the range of the Link at the same time as the door is opened (automatic deactivation) or is no longer within range of the Link (intelligent activation). Thus if your Link is located a long way from the entrance or if your door has been left open for a long time, intelligent activation cannot identify a user’s arrival or departure. If this occurs on a regular basis, you can move the Link closer to the entrance.
If you do not have a badge, intelligent activation is triggered via your smartphone.

Somfy Security Camera:
In the event of a Somfy Security Camera installation, intelligent activation is triggered via your smartphone. Somfy uses the localisation services of your iOS and Android devices to determine if you are at home or not.
How does Somfy determine if I am at home or not?
Smartphones use a combination of several technologies to determine your position: GPS / cellular reception / WiFi. The precision of the localisation data varies according to your smartphone model and according to some of its settings, in particular whether its WiFi is activated or not.
For the intelligent activation function to work, you must authorise the Somfy Protect app to use your localisation service. You can also access the advanced settings of the app via the iOS or Android settings to authorise the app to use the localisation function.
You systematically receive a notification proposing to activate the system when you leave, event if there are still people in your house.
Finally, it should be noted that if you disconnect the Somfy Protect app of if you close it completely, intelligent activation will no longer be operational.

How do I configure intelligent activation?
To configure the intelligent activation, open the Somfy Protect app and access the “Settings” menu.
1. Select “Intelligent activation”
2. The first time, you must authorise the application to access the localisation on your smartphone
3. This configuration screen enables you to switch the intelligent activation and deactivation on and off. It is different according to your installation.
4. Activation and deactivation are separated into two selectors:
Activation: determine if you wish to activate the motion detection/alarm when you leave (via notification)
Deactivation: determine if you wish to deactivate the motion detection/alarm when you return
5. Specify your address via the map editing screen; the address at which your site is installed is important in that the automatic activation and/or deactivation depends on your presence in, or absence from, the house
6. You can then change the activation and deactivation status whenever you want. You can also change or re-specify the location of your house on the map by pressing on it.
