  • Using BLRadar with Somfy

    I'm trying to raise/lower blinds and open/close drapes upon motion.

    In the UDMC I've tried all of the following

    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Z-Wave Den Drapes", "on", 0})
    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Z-Wave Den Drapes", "open", 0})
    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Z-Wave Den Drapes", "off", 0})
    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Z-Wave Den Drapes", "255", 0})
    blradar.PluginFunction("ControlDevice", new Object(){"Z-Wave Den Drapes", 255, 0})

    None of those work. I know the UDMC is executing because I wrote a writelog command.

    When I open the drapes with the HS device page this is what gets written to the log:

    It would be great if someone could help me figure this out. Thanks.

    Try

    hs.SetDeviceValueByRef(ref, 255, True)

    Make sure to use the device ref of the blinds

      Thanks Blade. I tried this and it didn't work. I put hswritelog commands before and after the setdevicevaluebyref command to make sure the code was executing and it was.

      I set up a HS event that triggered the blinds when motion was detected. I'd really rather get the plugin to do the work. I've used it since its debut and rely on it extensively. When I get home I may try some other commands. Do you think turning on the debug mode of the plugin it would yield additional information?

        Try this:

        Code:
        hs.CAPIControlHandler(hs.CAPIGetSingleControl(ref, True, "Open", False, False))
        make sure to use your device ref
