Somfy RTS

Hi,

My Somfy RTS controlled blinds have never been working with Homey. I noticed an update 7 hours ago to version 2.1.3 of the app and I got my hopes up. Unfortunately the blinds just move for a second or 2 and then stop again. I have never seen any other behavior. 

Is this only me or is there a generic problem to open or shut the blinds with the Somfy RTS motors? 

Kind regards,

Edwin

  • Does this link means that you propose to raise a github issue? 
  • No problems with Somfy here at all. Have only 1 but works like a charm for months now.

    I don't have Somfy's but I read about the two seconds somewhere. For your convenience :

  • Thnx Bas. I posted my question/issue there as well. Looks like there is a specific issue for the tilt and lift 25 with the battery/solar powered option. I have 8 so a solution would make me very happy. I will receive the 220V adapters this week so I will test again when they are 220v powered.

    Prior to the previous update some weeks ago I bever had mine runnig more than those 2 sec.. Since the upfate and re-assigning the devices it now works fine, and very reliable (using Sunevents app to trigger). As I was looking into buying a Somfy rts remote with a clock-timer @ 199 €. To decide throwing in a 100 € to let Homey do this and more was a great decision; Homey is a lot of fun-ctionalities!! 
  • Does homey also support the newer Somfy io blinds? Or is it limited to only RTS?

    Hi,

    Directly controlling my somfy screens via flows with the "Zet de status" card works like a charm. I made extra flows using the "De status is veranderd" card. These flows work OK when the screen are controlled by a "directly" flow but don't do anything when the Somfy remote is used. Should that not work too? 
  • JulianJulian Backer - Homey
    I believe Somfy RTS is one-way, so using the remote of Somfy itself only triggers the screen and Homey will not be 'informed' by that action. 
  • jtebbensjtebbens Member
    Yup one way. Using remote will not trigger the flows. Have RTS myself am nit really bothered about that. Homey is just another vocal remote for me.
  • JulianJulian Backer - Homey
    If you really want to use a physical remote you could for instance use a simple KAKU remote which you connect to Homey and program one of the buttons to the action of the screen. This way the action always goes through Homey.

    Thanks for the info jtebbens and the info/hint Julian
  • Not sure if it's related to the update to Homey 1.3.1, but I've noticed the last few days that when Homey closes the sunscreen, it only closes 90% of the way and then stops. 

    Anyone else havingbthe same problem and know how to fix it?

    For what it is worth, my Somfy RTS  controlled sunscreen still works perfectly (with 1.3.1).

    In my opion this can't be Homey's fault.
    I think Homey only gives a close or open command. Just like you push the remote ones.
    Cn you confirm when you push the remote from the sunscreen ones it closes a 100%?

    I think you can fixed the issue by resetting the RTS (set new end point)

    Running 1.3.2 no issues with Somfy RTS
