ASA sunscreen tube motor

I have searched the forum and found only topics that dated more than 2 years old.
Is there a (easy) way to add ASA tube motors to my homey?

Forgive me if i missed a topic in my Search…

Not much information. Which type?

I have two

ASA motor ETR3 10/16

Installed at the moment.

So it’ s a roller shutter motor with an ASA radio protocol based on a 433 MHz frequency. Right?

I have not yet worked with this radio frequency, so I can not help, sorry.

That is correct, thanks for your time anyway

For now I have made a workaround using a dummy kaku that is also seen by my domoticz. I added a few scripts to link the dummy to the shutter motor in domoticz…

Have you ever tried to teach the remote control key commands to Homey?

As far as I know, this is not possible if the remote control sends an encrypted code or the code is always renewed (rolling code).

I have recorded it once but was never successful to send it out… i dont know if that was due to my inexperience ( i have never used this feature) or if it is just not possible for this…
I could test that with a simple kaku command…

Short answer; no, it is not possible to add ASA motors directly to Homey.

it is however possible to add them by making use of a RFXCom443E to HA or a different system and add those devices back to homey. This is the way i’ve did it. Just managed to get it to work, it is raining like hell overhere, but at least it is ready before summertime :wink:

Thanks Martijn,

I think I did the same thing, I added a dummy switch in domoticz. The dummyswitch is triggerd by homey and domiticz runs a flow to switch the corresponding shutter. It works… a bit delayed… but it is still relying on a separate ( in my case less stable) system.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for better weather…
