OK - here’s the setup:
Using an RFXTRX433e + OH2 + A venetian blind operated by a lift and tilt 25 somfy motor.
Using the remote control (a Telis 4 with a scrollwheel) - the scrollwheel happily tilts the blind. The up and down buttons on the remote also move the blind to full extension and back again.
I’m not entirely sure what I’m about to describe is an OH problem - but I’m not sure of a better place to start asking (so if someone can direct me - that’d be welcome).
When I try and use the up/down commands in OH - that works fine. According to the RFXMGR - using a long command (>2 seconds) should result in a tilt … it doesn’t. It results in a gradual lift or drop depending on position. You can’t stop it (using the stop command) it just goes up or down for ~2 seconds.
Note: I achieved this by adding a second item through paperUI, configuring it as a dimmer, then setting up a rule which reacted to a switch being pressed and transmitted the ‘increase’ command to the blind.
Now - when I replicate using RFXMGR - I get the same results (hence why I’m don’t think it’s necessarily OH). But I’m at a loss as to how to configure the communication so to get the motor to tilt.
I’ve found references to US and EU mode and switching between them (which made me wonder if I was simply in the wrong mode) - but the instructions talk about an LED flashing to indicate mode (which the L+T25 doesn’t have!) - following the instructions and ignoring the comment about an LED simply erased all the remotes.
As I said - the remote is functioning fine. Although, notably, pushing and holding Up/Down on the remote doesn’t result in the short movement I get when sending using RFXCom - it just does the ‘move to end position’ motion.
I’ve only got one more possible thought (which involves getting the blind down - yet again - so I’m loathed to do it unless it’s my last chance) which is to erase all the remotes and to not add the telis 4 back into it as maybe it’s doing some 2 channel binding thing which is then causing confusion for all future non-telis 4 remotes.
Anyone come across this setup before? Anyone got it working? What am I missing?
