Using Roller Shutter with a Central Controller



Looking once again for some inspiration out there ... 


I have 8 roller blinds all individually controlled by Efapel 21311  blind switches. These are then wired back to a master General blind control that over-rides each individual control so regardless of the position of each blind,  pressing Open on the general control opens all blinds and similarly pressing Close on the general control, closes all the blinds.  The plan was to add the shutter module on the General control only so that I have a master open and master close on the house, however this doesn't quite work.


The blinds operate for 1 second only - which I have tracked to Parameter 17. Setting this to 25 seconds then operates the blinds for 25 seconds, but this is no use as the blinds take 60 seconds to operate fully. The buttons themselves now only operate the blinds for 1 second as well as the HCL interface.


I can't calibrate them and tried setting them up with or without positioning and toggle or momentary switch types but nothing works


Does anyone have experience of this type of setup - would this work with a relay control instead? I don't want to go to the expense of individual units on each blind if that will even work under this type of setup.


I am using a Roller Shutter 2 module

If you're open and close buttons on the general blind are normal toggle/ momentary switches, you should be able to do this with an relay switch. FGS-222.

Then you can create a scene that activates the relay output to you're general blind controller.
