Hi all! I have to say that I’m really loving this product. The functionality is incredible, including an API, WiFi, etc.
So, I have been successfully using my Bond Bridge for several months to control a bunch of Somfy shades without any issues. I’m using the latest firmware, version v2.10.21 . On the Somfy physical remote that came with the shades, I have a particular channel (#14) which is set to control 6 screen shades at once as a group. Another channel (#15) controls a different set of 6 blackout shades, and channel #16 controls all 12 screen / blackout shades.
For some reason with channel #14, when I try to add a new “Remote Control” in the app, and then go through the pairing process, not all 6 shades jog. I’m only able to get some of them to operate. I’ve tried the setup repeatedly with mixed results. Sometimes different shades jog and others don’t within the group of 6. Channel #15 and #16 groups work fine in the app to control all the shades in the group.
Everything always works fine through the Somfy physical remote control. I’m not sure if I completely understand how the channels work for groups of shades, i.e. is it a very long RF sequence that has to be sent to each shade in the group. But somehow the Bond Bridge is not able to capture the RF stream correctly for this channel. I’ve even tried adding the remote control as a “Device” instead of “Shades” and the Bond Bridge is still not able to learn the pattern.
Anyone experience the same issue or have any suggestions? I’m really thinking it’s a bug and not a physical limitation as other groups work just fine.
