Velux Integra

#1

Hi there!

I own a Velux solar powered sunshield which I want to control using Homey. Does anyone have any experience using the Velux Active system? Or does anyone know a better alternative for this?

Velux is using the IO HomeControl standard. I saw the Somfy Tahoma and Somfy Connexoon devices, if anyone have any experience with those solutions, please let me know. :slight_smile:

If you search the forum for Velux, Integra and IO HomeControl, you get all the answers there are already.

There is no hope for other / direct connections.
So I would suggest to look at the App

Hi Dijker,

Thanks for your fast response. Thanks to the information available, I already found this app. That’s why I asked for the Somfy experience from people.

I don’t like to be forced to buy some random hardware without doing some research first. There are people who were able to fix the Velux Active using Fibaro products. Maybe others found other solutions.

I just don’t want to buy a bridge / controller with the same price as the whole Homey system, just to control one sunshield, unless I am absolutely sure there are no other options.
