This is kind of a broad question because I haven't yet purchased the necessary hardware. But I'm trying to understand if what I have in mind is possible.
I have a set of motorized blinds, which are controlled with a simple RF remote. I understand these can be controlled with an RF hub, like the Broadlink hub, which in turn can be controlled via Hubitat. The blinds only have a few simple actions on the remote, such as Up, Down, or Stop.
I'm wondering if there's some way to programmatically set the position of the blinds using Hubitat? Like, if I were able to keep track of the time a blind was going "Down", and knew how fast it was moving, I could calculate what position it was in, and the direction and time necessary to move it to the desired position.
Is this something anyone has tried before? Is there maybe a simpler solution that I'm unaware of?
Thanks for your help!
