Version 0.3.3 has a corrected device type, which will work and display better in the app and on Home(y)kit.

This will, however, require you to remove the old devices and add them again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Using the “Home” (Woning) app to close my bedroom curtain:

Using Siri to close the curtains in my livingroom (lot of “ticks” because of the extendable rails in my living room - please note that this is not the Slide):

Both were accomplished with Homey, the Homeykit app on Homey and the Slide app on Homey.

Cool! Really nice. I want this too. I have to get a Slide first though. Good the know there is a working for it!

Version 0.3.5 coming up soon.

I accidentially left some testing code in the “checktoken” function, resulting in a renewal of the authentication token daily instead of every 14 days. This has been solved.

And I made a mistake in the same function, where I acidentially “set” the login details instead of getting them. This resulted in overwriting them with empty values, therefor it was impossible to renew the token and the Slides can’t be controlled anymore after 30 days. This is now fixed in the next version (still needs to be approved by Athom)

Ah good to hear, I did not understand why they stopped working from time to time. Re-adding the device helped but I assumed that was not a permanent fix :slight_smile:

Yeah it was quite annoying! But it should be fixed in the update.

I have one Slide for sale: https://tweakers.net/aanbod/2057794/slide-automate-your-curtains.html
Message me if interested!

How can I make a flow where Slide will open or close depending on the position of the curtain.

Scenario: I want to press three times on a fibaro dimmer switch and Homey should first see if it’s open or closed. When closed: open, when open: close.

Is this possible?

You should be able to accomplish that with the ‘position tag’ of the Slide.

Use the logic card " Is bigger than" in the “when” column.

Please remind that although a curtain may look fully closed or opened, the tag may vary a few percent. Mine go fully open but show 82% (0.82 in Homey).

Thanks for the app! I just set up some flows to use the slide & my lights in combination with a lux-meter.

Before I purchased a slide, I used to control my lights based around sunset and sunrise. In my experience this wasn’t ideal. Depending on the weather, my lights would be on while there was plenty of daylight outside, or my lights wouldn’t be on while they should be on darker/overcast days.

With the addition of a lux-meter I can open my curtains when it’s getting bright, but also close them a bit when the sun shines directly into my window and it becomes too bright. I used a Aeotec Multisensor 6 and mounted it on the inside of the window (could do it outside as well, but this was more convenient for supplying it with power)
