Great news about controlling Somfy motors,
We got lots of qeustions for supporting somfy, and now we got an great answer!

The RFXtrx433E become available from June 2 2014.
RFXtrx433E is A succesor of the great RFXtrx433 with the possibility to control Somfy motors.

We already got an prototype from rfxcom.com to implement and test.
And the Domoticz team has build in support (from beta 1772)
I have tested it and it works great!!

You are able to add a manual switch,
Give it a name, Choose type RFY (the name of Somfy in Domoticz)
Set a random unique Id and Unit,
Click test to pair and Add device.

Argh!! I bought my RFXTRX some weeks ago without being aware of this upcoming RFXTRX "E" version with RFY support!
Would be interesting to know if the added HW can be added to previous model...

I also bought the RFXTRX433. Can you explain the difference between the normal and the "E" other then support for RFY? Can it recieve multiple protocols like lighting4 and ARC at the same time for instance? Or is this not possible in any way?

I have external venetian blinds controlled with Telis var/mod remote (this the one with a rolling button in the middle to choose the angle of the vrnetian). Is Domoticz capable to change venitian angle or just "up" , "down" and "my"?

@drogert: The RFXtrx433E can use Type1, Type2 and Ext firmware. The RFxtrx433 can use Type1 or Type2. See the RFXtrx433 User Guide chapter 2

@darrepac: the RFXtrx433E supports "up" , "down" and "my".

Hi Team,

I have installed the RFXTrx433E and can perfectly control my 13 Blinds.
The Up, Down, and Stop button works exactly like the remote control. (the Stop button beeing the My button)

Nevertheless, when I do scenario, I can only do On/Off and not use the Stop Button... and it works as designed.

How can I do to add the functionality Stop and not only on/off in the scenario definition?

Thanks

I have domoticz v1.1812 on my rasberry with a RFXtrx433E but I don't have RFY type. Under windows it works great. Do you have a tips to have RFY type on domotics on a respberry pi ?

How can we do add the My/Stop button working fine in the light pannel in the script and planning possibility (On/Off)?
