Problem Domoticz to control Livolo "curtains" switch

Post by jovo » Sunday 17 January 2016 14:54

I bought a Livolo VL-C702-WR device or switch to contol my sunscreen.
Now i am having troubles controlling this device through Domoticz/RFXcom.
The trouble is basically that i cant get it synchronized in Domoticz.
(pushing the touch until it beeps for the second time, release the touch and push it again until it beeps, then press the test button on domoticz. By successfull sync, the livolo beeps again).

I tried to add it manually as switch type: on/off, blinds, dimmer, but non of them worked.

I have a small livolo remote which successfully synchronize with this device/switch, so the RF part seems to be ok.
I also have a number of Livolo on/off swiches and dimmers which are all working fine with this Domoticz/rfxlan setup.

My domoticz version is 2.3784 (ubuntu) and RFXcom version is 250

Who has some tips or suggestions to fix this problem?

Bert of RFXcom provided me a fix for this problem.
I expect that he will integrate the enhancements in next firmware release.

Hello,
I tested the Switch with the RFXCOM Manager with Toggle learning and on/off. It worked, perfectly. So the problem comes from Domoticz. I think it uses the "All Off" and not the "Toggle" Mode. Here the logs of the rfcom manager:

Code: Select all

##Set up the Livolo switck as Toggle

================================================
Lighting5 command
================================================
Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Livolo On/Off module
Sequence nbr  = 7
ID            = 0202 decimal:514
Unit          = 1
Command       = Toggle
Signal level  = 0  -120dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype        = Receiver/Transmitter Message
subtype           = Transmitter Response
Sequence nbr      = 7
response          = ACK, data correct transmitted


##Test toggle to switch off (is working)

================================================
Lighting5 command
================================================
Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Livolo On/Off module
Sequence nbr  = 8
ID            = 0202 decimal:514
Unit          = 1
Command       = Toggle
Signal level  = 0  -120dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype        = Receiver/Transmitter Message
subtype           = Transmitter Response
Sequence nbr      = 8
response          = ACK, data correct transmitted

##Test toggle to switch on (is working)

================================================
Lighting5 command
================================================
Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Livolo On/Off module
Sequence nbr  = 9
ID            = 0202 decimal:514
Unit          = 1
Command       = Toggle
Signal level  = 0  -120dBm
------------------------------------------------

Packettype        = Receiver/Transmitter Message
subtype           = Transmitter Response
Sequence nbr      = 9
response          = ACK, data correct transmitted

Is their a solution for this? I am having trouble with my curtain switch (VL-C702WR). I can't control it with Domoticz. When i add a manual switch (Livolo, Curtains) and do Test then it turns of the switch which was on. Once added, i can't use it to control the curtains.
