@thunderre Thanks for the reporting.
There is a general issue HA cover integration. Fix is in progress.


#7

Fix will be available in the next release


#8

Having the same problem I think. Running the newest version of Rotini and HA. When binding a cover from HA I can see the icon changing on/off when pressing the arrow-up/down in the app. But nothing happens to the actual cover. In HA I can manually trigger the cover by using cover.open_cover, cover.stop_cover and cover.close_cover. These versions of covers that I have don´t report back a specific value, so you can´t control them and see if they are like 20% open or so. Can this be a problem perhaps?


#9

@Joesaar That might be the issue. What is the actual cover device are you using?


#10

It is a covermotor with integrated 433Mhz reciever. So it is a one-way communication to them. They have end positions set, so if they just start moving they will stop automatically and the top and bottom. When i bind the cover to a switch witget instead it is working. But if possible I would like to have it working with the cover widget also, since it is more easy with the arrows and you also have the stop-function by pressing the icon in the middle (?) if I would like to have them halfway down. In HA they seem to have the status OPEN and CLOSED as attributes.


#11

Could it be possible to add an option in the shutter-widget like say “basic-mode” that doesn´t need/uses any values of the shutter? Just sends the commands? If at all that is the problem here?
Might not be as simple as that but just thinking out loud…


#12

Small update:
Added two Fibaro Roller Shutter FGR222 (Z-wave) today that is also reporting back a value in how far they are opened.
These are is working perfect with the Shutter-widget in Rotini.

Still in need of a fix for my other blinds if possible.


#13

Ok, am running the beta3 version now and testing my shutters.

Still the same problem with my “no-value” shutters.
Nothing happens when telling them to open or close with the shutter-widget.
Binding them to a switch-widget makes them go fully down or fully up, no function to stop them att desired height. (But still a working solution)

And the Z-wave shutters that reports a value I have one small issue with:
When having them at say 60% open and either closes them more or opens them up I get a nice “stop”-icon. But when pushing this icon the shutter goes back to 60%. If I tap the stop-icon twice in a row it stops (as one would like on the first press)

(Don´t know if this was the same behavior in beta2 version as well…)


#14

I’m running beta 10 and my HA cover (open garage) does not activate the garage door or show the door status. Is a fix coming? HA version is 0.87.
