So I read all 405 posts on the long (now closed) thread. I think I am getting some understanding, but for those of you who have them I am looking at this.
Will be 4 shades in my bedroom. 3 rooms away from the HE Hub.
I have zero zigbee devices at this time... so NO MESH.
I add the Ikea Blinds driver to HE.
I will take one of the zigbee boosters that come with the blinds and put it one room away from the HE Hub, and then a 2nd booster the next room over.
I will then install the first shade and pair it with a third Zigbee booster and HE.
Then the other 3 shades also pairing (holding up close to the battery during pairing ) that 3rd booster.
Now I kind of get lost. Questions
How do I group all 4 to operate in tandem? Do I set up a virtual dimmer switch that operates all 4 shades?
Pairing with Alexa. Did not understand. Several posts talk about her telling the switch to turn on (open) and off (close), but then others said I could use open and close???
Lastly, so the Ikea remotes don't work. I have the Zooz Remote Switch. Is there a way to use it to open and close the shades?
Lastly, what am I missing? What advice can you give me? Thanks Tons. Ginny
