I recently got IKEA fyrtur blinds and I’d like to know if it would be possible to control them using zigbee binding. I’ve actually managed to add them as a zigbee device, but only battery related channels are recognized:
Perhaps I haven’t read your message right.
I use the Ikea Trådfri binding and the Ikea Trådfri gateway, no Zigbee binding
But until yesterday, the Thing also only showed the battery status, as what you experienced. But now, I can control the blinds from PaperUI, I have not yet set up in sitemap or the like.
I can also now see, that the blinder is added in the documentation for the Trådfri with the ZigBee Device ID “202”
Have you had any further success with this? On the latest stable Openhab build (2.5.4) on Ubuntu X86, Coordinator Ember Em35XX - I end up in the same spot.
The blinds can be added, but I only get the battery channels. Actually - Identical to your results.
Did you ever hear anything from @chris?
Using the Ikea Gateway is driving me mad, since I have a latency of 20 seconds when communicating with the gateway from openhab.
If a few people want to donate some £€$ then I will purchase one for testing and add support for this. They are not super cheap though so while I do often buy devices just for testing, in this case it’s a little too expensive for me to justify spending the full amount at least.
Well, it might be, but I’m reluctant to go down this route. I’ve done it in the past, and it often takes a lot of time to get the right logs, and often we never capture the logs I need and everyone ends up unhappy after having spent a lot of time on it.
I know no-one likes to pay for things, but I think it’s the best way if a few people can chip in.
