i like that it has battery reporting - it's a big downer to install lots of home automation gear in your house and then routinely some fraction of it not working due to batteries running out.

Re: Somfy Z-Wave to RTS Interface (ZRTSI) & Indigo?

Just got four new Bali Somfy Autoview (z-wave) controlled blinds installed a few hours ago. Looking for info on how to control them from Indigo using my existing z-wave controller. User manual from Bali is very sparse on info about including/excluding in networks. I'm doing some google searches, but wondering if anybody in our Indigo ecosystem has experience with these.

Thanks, I found the same video. Going to try it in the next couple of days.

For others looking for setup help, in addition to previously mentioned items in this thread, this blog post was helpful for me in setting up these new AutoView shades:

Re: Somfy Z-Wave to RTS Interface (ZRTSI) & Indigo?

Has anyone had experience with the Venetian style Somfy shades? They go up and down like normal shades, but when they get to the closed position, the horizontal blades of the shade tilts 90 degrees. This allows the sun in and defeats the purpose of closing the shades. My workaround for this is to follow the close command with an immediate open command followed by a stop command. To do the stop command, I use a Raw Z-wave command of 0x26 0x05. This usually works, but not always, due to the latency of getting the command from z-stick ZRTSI controller to the shade. I am hoping there is a two-byte command to take the shade out of the tilt mode.

Re: Somfy Z-Wave raw commands

I have the Shangri La Blind Stripes with Somfy motors. They are like Venetian blinds. When they go down and reach stop position, they rotate 90 degrees. I am trying to find a command which prevents the rotation. I am using

UP: 0x26, 0x04, 0x60, 0x00
DOWN: 0x26, 0x04, 0x20, 0x00
STOP: 0x26, 0x05

Anybody aware of any other codes?
