today I have some questions to my rollershutters from Somfy.
I’m using OH3 on a Raspi 4 together with the tahoma binding which basically is working great for me.
For all of the shutters I have the Somfy switches Smoove A/M io to operate the shutters directly. The A/M means that it has a switch on the switch where I can change between automatic mode (operated via the Tahoma and e.g. openHAB) and a manual mode which prevents it from running automatical actions from the Tahoma station and also not from openHAB.
The problem I have is that I don’t see the state of this little switch at openHAB. If I go to the Somfy App or to the Tahoma website I can see that the rollershutter is in manual mode. At the Somfy App I can override the manual mode and move the rollershutter in any case. Therefore there is a dialogue box asking me if I want to operate the shutter.
For openHAB the behaviour is: if the little auto/manual switch is in manual I can operate the shutter which results in the log entries that it is predicted to come down/up and the state change to 100% or 0%. After a while it changes back to the previous state. But the rollershutter itself is not moving.
Here are the log entries for the described behaviour:
2021-04-06 17:06:22.752 [INFO ] [openhab.event.ItemCommandEvent ] - Item 'SRSKucheFensterControl' received command DOWN 2021-04-06 17:06:22.762 [INFO ] [penhab.event.ItemStatePredictedEvent] - Item 'SRSKucheFensterControl' predicted to become DOWN 2021-04-06 17:06:22.778 [INFO ] [openhab.event.ItemStateChangedEvent ] - Item 'SRSKucheFensterControl' changed from 0 to 100 2021-04-06 17:08:08.449 [INFO ] [openhab.event.ItemStateChangedEvent ] - Item 'SRSKucheFensterControl' changed from 100 to 0
My questions for this problem are:
- Is there a possibility to determine the state of this A/M switch?
- If there is nothing in the tahoma binding, wouldn’t it be nice to have such a possibility to see which state this switch has? Would that possibly be worth a feature request?
- If there isn’t such a possibility does anyone has another solution or suggestion?
If there are more informations needed please let me know. I also would provide more logfile entries.
So any help is very appreciated.
Thanks a lot in advance.
