Somfy RS485 RTS transmitter

Hi everybody,

I am new to openHAB and I am interested on a binding for Somfy RS485 RTS transmitter. Does this binding already exits or - if not - is there anyone working on it.

If both answers are no, I could imagine to contribute for this binding.

Best regards, Günter

I saw a forum posting that someone was working on RS485 but if I am remembering correctly, that is just the protocol. There is also a Somify URTSI binding.

Not being familiar with either I can’t say whether that means support for this particular device is there or in works or what.

The primary problem I have with Somfy URTSI is that Somfy does not deliver this type in Austria. Somfy RS485 RTS transmitter will be deliverd in Austria, but it has a different interface (RS485 instead of RS232), a different command set and a different command structure.

So I think, the RS485 binding could be helpfull, but I don’t know any details.

Have you found a solution to the problem? I find myself in the same situation and in the binding docs there is contradicting information as to whether it works with RS485 or only on RS232.
