    Hi,

    is there a way to control venetian blinds (up/down and slats tilting)  using  an app or scenes?

    It seems  that nobody is interested in that solution.  I had to use other systems for my latest installations becouse I could use My Home for controllig stats tilting . There are lots of systems which support  this funcionality. Its a pitty, that Bticino cant deliver such solution 🙁

    I was using Z-wave systems Zipato and Homeseer with Qubino modules, but I prefer hardwired solutions, espesially for bigger houses. ALMOST every well known home automation systems producer support slat tilting.

    you can use an F411/4, as 2 separate motor controllers, one for up/down, and one for slat tilting

    <span style=”color: #36758a; font-family: DinPro, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;”>sxpertle, have you already used it for this purpose? Could provide more details (wiring diagram ….). In my opinnion,  it won`t work satisfactorily at all, for many reasons.</span>

    see on page 3 of : https://catalogue.bticino.com//app/webroot/low_res/395569_463162_BT00276_b_EN.pdf

    as an alternative, you could also use a pair of F401

    <span style=”color: #36758a; font-family: DinPro, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;”>sxpertle , thank you foru your input, but venetian blinds have only one motor, not two as in diagram from page 3, or  you have a solution to connect 2 relays to one motor. First 1,5s of the movement is for lamellas tilting and then UP/DOWNs  starts.  Even if we go through the hardware connection, there are other issues: </span>

    <span style=”color: #36758a; font-family: DinPro, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;”>to control slates tilting we need to turn on relay for milisecond.  I couldn`t find a way to turn on MyHome relay using mobile app or scenario for less than 1 sec (e.g. if I want to set lamellas to 20% I  would need to turn on relay for 0,3s).</span>

    <span style=”color: #36758a; font-family: DinPro, sans-serif; font-size: 15px;”>Next problem would be lamellas position status after long up/down motor movement.  Definitely  this feature should be delivered by manumacturer, as other major systems did.</span>
