Running OpenHAB 2.3
I am “fighting” with rollershutters. I have KNX and Griesser actors.
Griesses actors react on physical switch using long push for up and down and using a short push to stop and position up and down.
"From the Manual in German:
Funktionsweise der Lokalbedienung
- Obere Endlage: langer Tastendruck AUF (> 0,4 s)
- Untere Endlage: langer Tastendruck AB (> 0,4 s)
- Beschattungsposition: langer Tastendruck AB (> 0,4 s), unmittelbar danach kurzer
Tastendruck AB (< 0,4 s)
- Stop: kurzer Tastendruck in Gegenrichtung (< 0,4 s)
- Lamellen verstellen: kurzer Tastendruck im Stillstand (< 0,4 s)"
I use for the moment the KNX binding and the Rollershutter Thing.
Up and Down and Stop work find via BASIC UI. Also Positioning up works well. Not so positioning down.
Reading UDOs answer on the 1. Sept. to Bert Melis, I have the following questions:
Q1. I do not understand the position=“5.001:5/1/4+<5/1/1” I did not find any explanations telling what 5.001: etc. is. Can you Help?
In KNX I have only two group addresses for the Rollersutters 2/3/30 and 2/3/31. Used 2/3/30 for up and down 2/3/31 for stop and step.
I found when I have the lammellas in the horizontal position I first have to sendCommand Up, then after 1000 ms SendCommand down and after 1560 ms SendCommand Stop to close them totally. Not nice but works.
Q2. I like to include this into a rule which activates when I push the close button. Did not find how to do it. What changes the Rollershutter Icon to when I push the down arrow in the Basic UI?
Rule would look like:
when Item „MyRollershutter“ changes to CLOSED? What will be the right value when I push the down arrow?
Thank you for your Help
Found out that the relevant GA for positioning the rollershutters have not been defined in KNX. So I will have to add the function in KNX with an own GA.
