    Thanks Al. Rollertrol actually STOPPED selling the unit. I had all originally specced out by them 8 months ago. But since then, they have changed motors and gone with the zwave approach at far more cost!

    I bought mine direct from RFXCOM. They ship worldwide.

    It is using the Somfy RTS 1-way protocol.
    The RFXtrx433E can be seen as a Somfy Telis4 remote and can control up to 40 Somfy motors.

    So, is all that's required is this transceiver? How does the transceiver talk to the Somfy motors?

    Somfy makes a universal controller:

    That device interfaces with this controller:
    http://www.autelis.com/shade-control-for-somfy-rts.html

    Spud has a plug-in for an Autelis pool controller, and seemed pretty amenable to modifying it for a different type of Autelis controller, so you might want to ask him whether he'd do this one, too:

    Can you give me any advice and let me know if Rfxcom device on the Homeseer Store is the correct component.

    I'm in the US and want to make sure I get the correct Rfcom Transreceiver.
    The RFXrec433E in the Homeseer shop is a receiver.
    You need the RFXtrx433E transceiver http://www.rfxcom.com/RFXtrx433E-USB...Transceiver/en

    This is good info. I have the Somfy Z-Wave controller, and it's quite limited. Doesn't provide status, and only does up and down, no my button.

    The MY/STOP button is supported by the RFXtrx433E and the RFXCOM HS3 plug-in.
    The Somfy remote is necessary to add the RFXCOM "remote" in the motor.

    Somfy RTS Tilt Control Question

    Does anyone know if rfxcom can support the 'My' Button for a Somfy Tilt motor? I installed 8 Somfy motors on my 2 inch wod blinds and need to get them to 50% open or support the 'My' Button which opens them to 50%.

    If so, do I need anything besides a Rfxcom device, Plugin and my Somfy Rts Remote?

    I believe the total was about 100 euro with shipping included. Given the exchange rate, right now, it shouldn't be much more than C$150. With shipping included, I think the one from Rollertrol is around C$190. I've only used it to control some RGB LEDs and it's been working fine.

    Cheers
