Hi, i’m new in this area, this is my first topic here. i just ordered raspberry pi 4 in order to make my house “smarter” by using it with openHAB. first thing i would like to do is to control my Electric shutters/Blinds with it. i checked around and found that there is a somewhat old solution called RFXtrx433E USB HA controller that can connect between the Somfy motors and the openHAB system on the raspberry pi.
is it still the best solution around?
is it better than buying Somfy’s controller - " connexoon" (which cost twice)?

thank you
