Im in the process of renovating my home and in a short space of time i am accumulating a lot of remote controls.
Somfy blind remotes, velux windows , velux solar blinds etc and now some shelly relays and air con.
My question is this. Will the hubitat c8 control all this stuff or do i still need the somfy tahoma switch that the blind company sold me. And if so will the two hubs talk to each other.
Thanks for any advice
My initial response would be to be slightly more specific with the devices you are looking to integrate. Also, in general I would suggest looking at the HE supported devices as well as the Wiki listing some of the Community supported devices:
The purpose of this Wiki post* is to maintain an active list of community based drivers that are currently running on the Hubitat Elevation platform. As you add new devices to your network that are NOT listed in the "
List of Compatible Devices" , please add them here to keep the Community up to date.
See also, the Community Apps Wiki for a list community based applications.
The list of devices that are known by our staff to work on Hubitat Elevation hub, has a new home. Please vi…
Beyond that recommendation.... I would also encourage you to look at the Tahoma Community integration.
Played around today with integrating my TaHoma Switch into Hubitat so I can control my RTS blinds using the rule engine in Hubitat as the TaHoma Switch is quite limited.
Somfy TaHoma Switch Driver for Hubitat on github
This uses the new Developer Mode feature of TaHoma Switch. All Somfy devices are controlled via the LAN. Only the initial auth between Hubitat and the TaHoma Switch needs to go over the internet. There's also a periodic security token refresh that needs internet access.
In terms of Velux and Shelly, continue the search and conversation....
Thanks, I appreciate your advice
