Some notes about the RFXtrx433E: work in progress

  • To use RFXmngr, you need to first install the drivers from FTDI, then (unplug and) plug the RFXtrx433E
  • To drive Somfy blinds, you need the RFXtrx433E version (with a final E).
  • RFXmngr runs only under windows, while RFXflash can work under Linux with Mono
  • Setup: see this nice tutorial.

Somfy / RFY

To associate the RFXtrx433E with Somfy blinds (his instruction assumes that you already added RFXtrx433E under Hardware)

(1) Click on 'Switches', then click on "Manual Light/Switch".

(2) Fill in...

Hardware: RFXtrx433E 
Device name: <Name for my Somfy blinds>
Switch Type: Blinds
Type: RFY
ID: <select a random ID>
Unit Code: <select a random number>

(3) Then, on a remote already associated with the blinds:

move the blinds so they are neither fully closed nor fully open.

(4) press the tiny "prog" button 3s on the back of the remote. The blinds make a quick move.

(5) Immediately click on the "Test" button in your Domoticz screen. The blinds make a quick move again, to confirm association..
