I do not agree. KLF 200 does indeed have an API, as far as I understand. It doesn´t need cloud service at all.
Having Netamo, as well as the KLF 200, and OpenHab, I can do the same. Infact even though I do have Netamo, I really dont need it.
I can control all my Velux toproof windows from my mobilephone right now, sitting here at work 40km away from my home, through myOpenhab.
I really couldn´t care about Homekit. I use Android
Why do I need Velux Active? I really try to understand the difference between KLF 200 and Velux Active. Beside beeing made by Netamo, which for sure is possive, rather than Velux, who I really hate, I can not see any functions I havn´t already got.
The only limitation i miss, (actually it applies to all Velux windows, they´re simply to stupid) is an active statement from the window, telling me if it´s open/closed, and if open, how much.
Since there are no sensors available, I cant tell if my windows are open or not. I have to create a rule for this in OpenHab, and rely on it behave as it´s suppose to.
I did however add a single Xiaomi door/window sensor to one of my windows, just to test this. Now I know when this window is open or closed, but I don´t know how much. And this is probably the only way, unfortunatly. (I have 8 Velux windows, so next step is to add more sensores).
What am I missing?
PS forgot to mention, all my windows are integra and controled wireless through the KLF200.
