Hoping to connect - Soma Connect Shades

Has anyone here had any success with connecting Soma Connect Shades to their Hubitat?

I have been slogging through trying to set up via Homebridge with not much success. I am kinda hoping someone sees that that has them and can point me in the right path.

I have a VERY basic Device Handler working in SmartThings. Feel free to drop me a PM if you would like it to have a play and try to get it working.

yeah call me dumb but do we still need to use the Soma Connect? I'm currently going through that using APIs but it's a bit hit and miss - would be very good to do away with the Soma Connect altogether as I don't find it terribly reliable.

I have a looped, pull-string curtain on my patio and thinking about making a purchase. Has anyone here gotten this working? Soma seems like it would work, but definitely open to other ideas. Thanks!

Seems like the Soma is not very popular here.....

No! I’ve got them working via and api but no device driver

I'm a newbie here. Anyway you could share how you get these working via API?

I was trying to port the Smartthings Smartapp and device handlers over to hubitat, but wasn't able to figure it out. Was getting "Metadata error: Capability 'bridge' not found". I guess the smartthings smartapp requires you to add the Soma Connect as a bridge device in order to work, but it doesn't look like Hubitat supports bridges as a device type?

Any tips would be appreciated!

If you don’t care about polling (meaning you’d only use Hubitat to control the shade), you can 1) create a virtual shade device, 2) a global variable in rule machine that takes the value given by the virtual shade position via a 3) a rule machine rule that then pastes the variable into the HTTP get request (connect.ip.address:3030/set_shade_position/"MAC"/%your shade variable name%)
