As per the subject, I'm looking at getting some motorised Motolux blinds. They come with a 433MHZ multi-channel remote control, and an Orvibo Allone Pro RF smart hub which works with an App called HomeMate. It apparently also supports some level of integration with Alexa and Google Home.

 

 

 

What I'd really like to do is control them from OpenHab so that I can write more sophisticated rules based on actual sunset times and possibly temperature etc. rather than just using simple timers. 

 

I have found some posts on the OpenHab site about a python library, but it appears to have limited functionality and looks like it may not work at all with the latest version of the hub. So just wondering if anyone has managed to get OpenHab controlling the RF output of an Orvibo hub?

 

Alternatively is there another hub will talk to OpenHab that could perhaps learn the RF codes from the supplied remote control?

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

Best thing I can think of is see if you can find some sort of mqtt bridge to your orvibo hub. Then from openHAB (or anything else) you can just use mqtt commands to control it.

Hopefully someone has done the hard yards already. And a mqtt bridge (most likely in python) is more likely to be found than a openHAB addon (jar)

If its a basic 433MHz insecure remote then there are other solutions you can run over USB/serial off the automation computer rather than the orvibo. I will ask around but one solution is just an arduino, a cheap 433Mhz transmitter and a reciever module and some skecth loaded onto it that looks after the timings and makes it show as mqtt.
