Our estimated delivery lead-times are stated on each product page. ************ COVID-19 UPDATE:
Thankfully, production has resumed on the majority of our products. We do have a significant backlog of orders, but we are working hard to clear these as soon as possible and get back on track and to reasonable lead times. We expect manually operated blinds and fly screens to be the first products to have the backlog cleared, followed by automated blinds.
It's going to take a couple of weeks, we hope, until things are back on track with all products.
For those of you placing new orders, we've published what we believe to be realistic lead times going forward on each product page.
If I could ask one thing during this period of time. Please be patient.
Unless it's super urgent, please hold off from contacting us to chase your order. We have reduced staffing in our home offices and as a result it is difficult to keep up with all of the very polite requests for updates that we are receiving. Rest assured, we are working through orders in the order in which they were received and your product will be delivered as soon as possible. Most of our products are custom made to order and there is a supply chain (UK and EU) for our materials, which are still under strain.
This has been a very challenging time for everyone and we understand that delays with your products can be yet another cause of stress. But please show our team patience, consideration and understanding.
And please know that by giving us your custom and support, you are helping a small family business continue to operate during a very challenging period.

The AppyHub plugs into your existing wifi router. The AppyTransmitter plugs into your AppyHub. Your Somfy RTS enabled blinds are paired with the AppyTransmittter. You download an app to your smartphone or tablet which in turn is paired with the AppyHub.
Once set up, if for example, you press the UP button on the App on your smartphone or tablet, a signal is sent to the AppyHub via your wifi router. The AppyHub pings this signal onto the AppyTransmitter. The AppyTransmitter sends a radio signal to your blind. The Blind goes up!
It really is as simple as a touch of button, or in this case, a tap of a phone!
The beauty of this solution is that you don’t even have to be within range of your wifi router. So long as your phone or tablet has connection to the internet, you can control your blinds from literally anywhere in the world!
