    Hey Alex,
    This seems to be an expensive path since it requires the Bond pro and 5 sidekicks for my setup. So I'm going to give the pulse2 another shot since Rollease is sending me a replacement (they think mine isn't acting normally). Please don't put effort toward this on my account since the cost is making me pause.

    Well not quite supported but there may be a path. The best solution that merk suggested is that state change from the bond sidekick can do what I want. Can your plugin intercept this? You can see the discussion here:

    OK, I'll check.

    If Bond doesn't work (if) - then creating a separate plugin may be an option, but you said you are already doing it?

    There's some indication on Bond forum that it's supported: https://forum.bondhome.io/t/rollease.../413/81?page=4

    I have 15 rollease and I've been using the Pulse 2 bridge by Rollease, but the HS plugin is bare bones and doesn't stay alive very long.
    ​​​​​​An API does exist and I've been playing around with writing a more stable version, but I'm now realizing that your plugin + Bond may be a better option.

    Here is the high level description. It seems the Bond pro may support it at least unidirectional, but not sure about the cheaper Bond.

    Bond does seem to support control of Rollease, but I haven't seen status updates. I'll post at the bond forum. Thanks
    Can you please provide more info - "The ARC comm with Rollease will send updates" - what's "ARC comm"? Where does it send the updates?

    I'm considering a Bond as a Rollease shade solution since the company's Pulse2 has been a struggle. Does AKBond plugin support readback? I'm specifically interested if status of shades (open, closed, percent open) updates homeseer even if homeseer didn't issue the command. This is useful when users have RF control through wall switches which are standalone. Note that I'm not asking if AKBond can read the RF from the remote. Rollease shades send periodic status updates (when action is finished, for example) and I want those to update HS.
    This depends on your shades model. Only Somfy based devices support proper feedback.

    What do you mean by "Rollease shades send periodic status updates"?

    You can get more info at Bond forum https://forum.bondhome.io/
