I am a defector from Wink, but looking for some help with my Pella Shades. I was an early adopter to Pella room side Insynctive shades, and they work great with Wink but would love to get them set up on Hubitat. I can get the Pella Insynctive Zwave Bridge setup on Hubitat, but when I try and add a shade through the inclusion process, it will not get added. I understand it is not a supported device but was hoping because it was Zwave, it would still be able to get setup.
@chris10@guacamole I recall seeing integrations posted on the ST community when I used to use that hub. I just searched and found a few hits and this one that mentions there is a telnet connection with the Pella hub. I don’t have the Pella hub or blinds so maybe this will help get you going. Many ST device handlers and apps can be ported over.
I think the first generation Pella Bridge (which plugged directly into an outlet and supported a backup battery and had its ethernet connection on the side) includes the z-wave capability for Wink and possibly other hubs. The 2nd gen Bridge has a USB input and ethernet connection on the back and its specifications don't say anything about having 900MHz radio inside.
I am trying to get the blinds to pairs with the new driver, but I am unable to find the IP address of the bridge. I've connected to my network via ethernet, but trying to troubleshoot why I can't get it on my network.
Thanks for coding the driver. I've been trying to get it set up the last couple of days. I am having trouble with the IP Address. I have the bridge plugged into my network, but I do not see it on the network, unsure if I am missing something. I was doing some research and see that I have 1st Gen Bridge and wonder if that has something to do with it. Any suggestions?
I suppose it depends on your router, there should be a place to see what devices are connected and their IP address. I don't believe the Pella Bridge provides a device name to the network so you'd have to figure it out from what all devices you have connected on your network.
