Roller Shutters via Orvibo Hub (or other RF hub)

Hi All,

I'm looking to install Roller shutters on a house we just bought and about to move into. I'm in Perth, Australia and a certain roller shutter company is offering 'free' upgrade to remote and wifi controls in my quote ( I reckon its probably cheaper for them to just give me a remote than install a wall switch control).

After getting more details, it appears the shutters are RF controlled and the wifi option is achieved via an Orvibo RF/IR Hub.

I'm just wondering anyone has a similar set up and getting it integrated to HE? Or recommend a an RF hub that would play well?

I was originally just going to get a standard AC roller shutter and put in Fibaro roller shutter 3. With 10 windows its going to be a more expensive solution

Look at Broadlink RM4 Pro I have it doing roller shutters and B & D garage doors. Bonus it does my Air Con and TV video audio. It integrates well with Alexa. Problem is that it is too soon nobody has all forms of Automation covered. I am trying to get it all local on a Hubitat but not with a lot of success so far. Hubitat seems to focus on Zigbee and Z Wave and has missed RF.

I eventually did went ahead with the orvibo hub. They work well with alexa so for now my duct tape approach is the virtual contact/switch to trigger an alexa routine. Not ideal as it is cloud dependent.

I wonder if the bond bridge will work well with these

I'm searching for a similar solution. I have several blinds that are RF (no easy solution from Hubitat yet) and the Orvibo Hub.

I went with Google Home, and I can't seem to wire up the virtual device you used with Alexa.
