Brel, bi-directioneel

I would like to add a bi-directional device to the Brel app.
Other devices are working well.
How can I add a bi-directional Brel device to Homey?

I’m waiting for the same thing - there is no way to do it currently I believe

Wat do you mean with this? As far as I know a Brell motor can run two ways: Open/Close
this is bi-directional, so whats the problem?

Brel has a new productline which is called bi-directional or special.
This is a link to the product.

It does not connect to the current app.

OK, but Brel Nederland B.V. is the author of the Brel App, so contacting them could give you an answer.

The app within Homey tells me Athom, but app store Brel. :grin:
I will also contact Brel.

Did you contact Brel already? I have the same problem here now :cry:

Yes, I did. There was no planning available at that moment.
Maybe it will help if more users ask Brel for an update.

Oké, I just did the same at Brel. We will see

I got an answer from Brel. He says that they are negotiating with Athom about the update for this app. I will put a question also on slack for Athom. It would be very useful if it works also for the ble engines

Great. Hope it will be updatet soon.

I asked Brel the same question. Their answer:

"It is not possible to control the new generation of bi-directional motors with the Homey Athom. You will then need to purchase the Brel-Home.

We have tried to make this possible with the Homey, but unfortunately the Homey is not suitable for communicating with our engines."

Strange that different people get different answers.

Could anyone from Athom shed some light on this issue. Brel is saying Homey is unable to communicate with the new Brel engines. Is that true?

It sound not like Homey, can not connect to bi-directional brel. :wink:
Hope there will be a update soon.

Still waiting for the answer of homey. They are not really quick I must say with giving an answer to a issue that’s made. Indeed strange if brel if giving me a answer that’s complete opposite. This would mean that no update is possibile :thinking:
