Somfy is one of the most popular shade motor systems.  This driver was designed to give customers and installers more tools and features integrating Somfy into Control4. 

 

Features:

  • Precision shade tracking
  • Move blinds up/down/stop from any Control4 interface
  • Easy to integrate blind 'toggle' setting.  Press toggle, blind goes up, press it again, blind stops, press again blind goes down.
  • Current level selection and notification in Control4 (Note: 0 = Fully Closed, 100 = Fully Open)

  • Easy Control4 keypad integration using Composer 'CONNECTIONS' menu
  • Control4 Keypad LED state changes when blinds are closed/open
  • Supports both RS485 and RS232 versions

 

Setup:

  • 1. Install and enroll your shades, please refer to somfy documentation on how to do this properly. Set the correct limits of your shades before adding them to Control4.
  • 2. Add the Somfy Main driver to your project and add your activation key. You must add in the main driver first. If you fail to do so, the separate shade drivers will not auto-bind correctly. 
  • 3. Add in your individual blind drivers for each room, these drivers will automatically bind with the main Somfy driver.
  • 4. For each shade that you add, you must select the “blind type” and “blind movement” at the top of the property’s page. If you fail to do this you will not get the appropriate animation within navigator.
  • 5a.If your shade is a louver type device read this step, if not proceed to step 6.  You may notice your louver type shade when fully opened does a complete rotation. To fix this and make it easy we will need to dial in the time it takes to reach the angle at which you want you shade to be opened. So, fully closed would be perpendicular to the ground. While fully opened would be parallel to the ground. 
  • 5b. Time the amount of time it takes to reach your ideal “parallel” to the ground state. Now enter that time in the open and close time for that specific shade. 
  • 5c. Now we will navigate to the driver actions tab. Select the “Enable Send Stop Louver Type” selection, and press the set button to the right. If you want to flip the direction that your shade is opened/closed you will then select the “Shade Direction Reversed” driver action. 
  • 6. Choose your shade address and unit address of your Somfy URTS module. 
  • 7. We will now time how long it takes the blind to travel up/down. This gives 
  • 8. Using navigator or within composer complete a full movement to open and close the shade. Keeping track of the time it takes for both movements. 
  • 9. Enter the time it takes to open the blind in the “Open Time” property field. Followed by the time it takes to close in the “Close Time” field. 
  • 10. Your shades are now calibrated. Enjoy.

Troubleshooting:

                Symptom: Shades are not being controlled. 

                                Step One: Check the wiring…

 

 

IF WIRING TO A HC200 or HC250 Controller:

                Here is the pin out configuration for these controllers.  Terminate a CAT5e cable 568A.  Splice the wiring to a stereo 1/8” mini cable where:

Brown pair connects to the bottom pin of the mini cable

Solid Orange connects to the middle pin of the mini cable

White/Orange connects to the top pin of the mini cable

 

If using Somfy RS485 -> RS232 adapter: These will only work with a HC800, HC300, I/O Extender as their device is port powered.
