Roller Shutter 2 With Awning Control
benjah posted a question in Roller Shutter 2Hi Guys, I recently purchased an awning and would like to connect it to our Fibaro system. I already have blinds , curtains etc connected to HC2 so I'm pretty familiar with Roller Shutter 2. I purchased the awning with a stand alone receiver with wind, rain sensor (see attatched image). I looked at integrating the wind and rain sensors in Fibaro but My fibaro does crash from time to time so i like the idea of the wind and rain sensor acting independently (safe from crashes). If my curtains don't open because Figaro crashed - no big deal. If the awning stays open and gets ripped out of the wall because fibaro crashed - kind of a big deal!!! The receiver accepts the 4 wires for the awning, power input and control input from the sensor. So my plan was to wire a manual momentary switch for up and down into the Roller shutter 2 and connect into the up down inputs (Marked L & D on the picture) . Hopefully the best of both worlds - local , independent control from the receiver and integration with the HC My question is around power. Normally the power runs through the roller shutter 2. In this scenario i need power to run directly , permanently to the receiver box so the sensor remains active. So can I wire the power in parallell to the RS2 and the RS2 simply manages the up / down component? Or am I better using a dual relay for this purpose instead? If i do it that way I will lose positioning information in HC2? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
