I just installed 22 of these in my home. Noticed that the Generic Shade driver doesn't implement a capability that can be controlled in Groups and Scenes. I'm still learning zigbee development but wrote this custom driver for the shades that implements the capability. I've been using Groups with all my shades for about 2 weeks now with good success. Still need to fix the battery reporting though
@greg21 Cool, I found your Github project over the weekend - not too many keyword hits for Smartwings! The Hubitat generic shade driver doesn't expose battery level, which apparently IS available via Zigbee as you found (and zigbee2mqtt supports). I only have a couple of SW shades deployed right now, but let me know if you need any help testing your driver.
I decided to buy one of these for my office as a test run for the rest of the house. They were a breeze to install, set limits, and pair and @greg21's driver works perfectly. Let the automation begin...
Ha! I wish I knew these existed before I purchased two blinds per window! Based on the photos, it looks like the blinds have two motors with one front rolling and one back rolling. If that’s the case, then you probably register them separately. They should work with the driver but they haven’t been tested. If you give them a shot, LMK if they work and I’ll update the docs to include them.
I've got two pairs of their roller blinds and will probably end up ordering a bunch more over time. Really happy with how they work.
I see that they do outdoor roller blinds too and looking at them they look identical to the ones I have except mine have have a motor with a traditional 433mhz remote instead of Zigbee. I've been able to control them by learning the commands but I'm wondering if SmartWings would sell me just the zigbee motor for them? Has anyone asked about buying parts?
I just ordered a dual roller. Chat support was very responsive (and human) here on a Sunday morning and they said the dual system just acts as two independent devices and the controlling app has to handle combining and/or coordinating (if you want that; I don't know that I care but it will be trivial in HE to create whatever interlocks I might want).
Help needed. I have 2 Smartwings roller shades with a strange behavior.
Zigbee, I've tried the Generic Zigbee shades driver and Gregs driver.
In Hubitat/devices/myshade the open/close works correctly, but with Alexa and Homekit the open/close is reversed. If I turn on reverse level in the preferences, then Hubitat open/closed is reversed and Alexa, Homekit is correct.
