I am using openHAB 3.2 with openHABian. I control my Somfy io-Rollershutters with a Somfy io-Connexoon bridge via openHAB. This works fine.
We now get two new rollershutters which unfortunately only support Somfy RTS. Therefore I bought the new Somfy Connectivity Kit (Somfy Connectivity Kit) which both supports io and RTS. It is cheaper (only 69 €) than two Connexoons (for io and RTS) and seems to be better integrated in the Tahoma World than the Connexoon (e.g. it uses the normal Tahoma app which is much better than the Connexoon apps).
I could properly integrate the Connectivity Kit in openHAB, everything was discovered. However, the basic control of the rollershutters is not working (UP, DOWN).

As you can see the item changes immediately from 0 to 100.
If I use the Tahoma App, openHAB properly receives the new status, e.g.:
2022-02-26 11:15:38.927 [INFO ] [openhab.event.ItemStateChangedEvent ] - Item ‘MarkiseKucheStrasse_Control’ changed from 0 to 29
What is working: The orientation of my roller shutters can be controlled by openHAB and Tahoma scenarios can be executed.
Any ideas? Or is it necessary to adapt the binding to the new Connectivity Kit?
I did some testing whether it is a openHAB problem or a problem on the Somfy side.
I installed Home Assistant via docker and used the Overkiz-Integration. Everything worked fine. The kit was identified as TaHoma Basic Plus.
So I guess that it is necessary to adapt the openHAB Tahoma-binding. Since the Somfy Connectivity Kit will replace the Connexoon this might be important for many users in the future.
No. Somfy MyLink is a different device. The Connectivity Kit is a small Tahoma box. It should work with the Overkiz-API (as my Home Assistant test proves). The openHAB-Tahoma-binding is using overkiz (according to its description, so it should be possible to integrate this new device in the binding.
I had no idea this Connectivity Kit exists. To distinguish between Tahoma and this Kit I need a trace log of somfytahoma binding during discovery, there should be GET setup response containing all the required information. (delete the PINs and other sensitive data)
Most probably awnings identifies themselves differently and I need to see the identification information.
Can you PM the openhab.log to me, plz?
Only one (strange) issue remains:
When a blind is moving, I can stop it with the “stop/my” (middle) button in OpenHAB.
But when it is up/down and I press the “stop/my” button in OpenHAB, it does not move to the “my”-position as it does with the physical remote. Is this a limitation?
@mmat No problems here. @juju1337 my-position with connectivity kit and Tahoma-app did not work originally. However, Somfy has fixed it now (got e-mail this work and tested it). The binding still does not work, however. When stop-button is pressed, my-position is not set.
@BillGOH Yes, I just tried again and it does still not work from openHAB with this binding
Are STOP and MY different commands? I assume they are not, that’s why I don’t understand the issue in the first place.
