rfxtrx platform supports Siemens/LightwaveRF and RFY roller shutters that communicate in the frequency range of 433.92 MHz.
First you have to set up your rfxtrx hub.
The easiest way to find your roller shutters is to add this to your
cover: platform: rfxtrx automatic_add: True
Launch your homeassistant and go the website (e.g http://localhost:8123). Push your remote and your device should be added.
Once added it will show an ID (e.g
0b11000102ef9f210010f70) and you can verify that it works from the frontend. Then you should update your configuration to:
cover: platform: rfxtrx devices: 0b11000102ef9f210010f70: name: device_name
The RFXtrx433e is required for RFY support, however it does not support receive for the RFY protocol - as such devices cannot be automatically added. Instead, configure the device in the rfxmngr tool. Make a note of the assigned ID and Unit Code and then add a device to the configuration with the following id
071a0000[id][unit_code]. Eg, if the id was
01, and the unit code was
01 then the fully qualified id would be
071a00000a000101, if you set your id/code to single digit in the rfxmngr eg, id:
04 and unit code:
1 you will need to add
0 before, so
# Example configuration.yaml entry cover: platform: rfxtrx automatic_add: False signal_repetitions: 2 devices: 0b1100ce3213c7f210010f70: # Siemens/LightwaveRF name: Bedroom Shutter 070a00000a000101: # RFY name: Bathroom Shutter
- devices (Required): A list of devices with their name to use in the frontend.
- automatic_add (Optional): To enable the automatic addition of new covers (Siemens/LightwaveRF only).
- signal_repetitions (Optional): Because the rxftrx device sends its actions via radio and from most receivers it’s impossible to know if the signal was received or not. Therefore you can configure the roller shutter to try to send each signal repeatedly.
- fire_event (Optional): Fires an event even if the state is the same as before. Can be used for automations.
