Plugin update Version 1.96

This update add a few new devices:

  • Cherubini and Gaposa Blinds
  • TFA rain sensor

It also fixes some issues with Somfy devices and improves the functionality of other blind type devices.
Speed settings 1 thru 6 added to Lucci Air DC fans.

All the plugin files are included in the attached zip file. The modified files are:

  • L_RFXtrx.lua
  • J_RFXtrx.js
  • D_Fan5.json
  • D_WindowCovering3.json (144.1 KB)


Have done all the updates and now have another problem (still can’t get the Somfy RTS Venetian
blinds to pair) - none of my devices work properly from the Vera. The open/close buttons don’t work, but the slider does (but not fully). Also on the web interface, there doesn’t seem to be a full compliment of buttons

Can you give me a bit more information about the slider operation? What does not fully mean?
What buttons are missing and what from what kind of Somfy device?

I’ve attached screenshots from the IOS app and then the web access via Firefox.

The web access seems to have lost some of the control buttons. The buttons don’t work within either, but moving the slider does activate the devices - Somfy RTS blinds/awnings and curtains - but not fully out/closed on all

sorry, images in wrong order

OK, I have two points to make.

  • There is no position feedback from these devices so the slider control operates based on the time for the device to fully move from open to closed or vice versa. You probably need to set the MaxMoveTime variable for each of these Somfy devices to the number of seconds for that full travel.
  • With regard to the buttons available for each device, I tried to make the UI appropriate for each type of device. Does an awning need both Open/Close and Up/Down?

Finally, I don’t actually have any Somfy devices so I can’t really test the operation properly and perhaps my assumptions about how they work are incorrect.

Any change for the icon location issues with read-only file system updates?

Icon files must be copied to /www/cmh/skins/default/icons/ There are several ways to do this but the easiest way is to use WinSCP. The Vera hub upload process should recognize icon files and handle them properly but at this time it does not.

Looks like it is read only to me. ver 7.31

I’m running the latest firmware 1.7.4970 (7.31). I just copied a .png file there.

Oh okay. I was looking in the img folder which is squashfs based and did not realize creating an icons folder in default added to the ro icons. Thanks!

Thanks, this plugin fixed an issue I was having Adding a Somfy device
