Louvolite One Touch Blinds

#1

Hi all
First post here. Hopefully following the rules :slight_smile:
I have just got rid of a Vera Plus with an rtx433 transmitter and bought the early 2019 Homey as it supports both 433 and 868.
With the Vera I paired a louvolite remote control and a blind and it was detected by the Vera / rtx433 once I added a generic RTS blind device.
This isn’t working for the Homey. Can anyone offer some guidance please?
I am a home auto noob.
Thanks in advance

So looking more, I have tried the following whilst using the Somfy RTS app.

  1. Program button on the Louvolite blind motor… app adds but no controlling of the blinds
  2. Program button on the remote control wand… app adds but no controlling of the blinds
    2.a. press buttons on remote control to allow Homey to maybe hijeck the signal… nothing still
  3. Program button on both remote and blind motor… app adds but no controlling again

A little disappointing really as it doesnt look like this can control these blinds, which I would expect it to given it is newer than the Vera plus and given it supports the 433 signal.

If anyone can offer some guidance that would be appreciated, but looks like due to lack of native support for this and Velux blinds (Velux need a 3rd party Tahoma controller) it will need to go back to Amazon. Someone change my mind please! :slight_smile:

Cheers
