RFXtrx Rollershutter

This platform has been deprecated in favor of a “cover” platform and will be removed in the future. Please use the cover platform.

The 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 configuration.yaml:

  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:

  platform: rfxtrx
      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 0a 00 01, and the unit code was 01 then the fully qualified id would be 071a00000a000101.


Example configuration:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  platform: rfxtrx
  automatic_add: False
  signal_repetitions: 2
    0b1100ce3213c7f210010f70: # Siemens/LightwaveRF
      name: Bedroom Shutter
    070a00000a000101: # RFY
      name: Bathroom Shutter

Configuration variables:

  • devices (Required): A list of devices with their name to use in the frontend.
  • automatic_add (Optional): To enable the automatic addition of new roller shutters (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.
