Question

Hi,

 

is there any plans to have a single module, like the roller shutter 3, to handle 2 blinds instead of one?

Thanks.

Fibaro don't usually share their upcoming plans.  You currently need one module per blind...

You do need to install one Roller Shutter per blind but you can use associations to control a number of blinds with one module.

EDIT: maybe i should ask first why you wish to do that?

 

- if you wish to save money, this os not the way to go, especially for normal blinds/motors. That might work for electronic motors, with e.g. potential free contacts to control. 

 

- if you need lot of blinds/motors, controlled at exact same time, you might control them from one RS3, and associations. 

 

There is another was as well Roller Shutter 3 support motors with intergrated electronic driver, therefore you can use group control module for that. A good one electronic type (and this is what you need, not these cheap mechanical relais based types) costs same as Roller Shutter 3.

    I'm asking because, in kitchen/living room  we have 'high density' switches for the blinds: 4 buttons to control 2 blinds instead of 2 big buttons controlling only one.. that's why, I may not have sufficient room in the switch box to fit 2 RS.

    oh yeah, in such case i would put both RS3 into switch box, and instead of using the original switch (which need as well some space in the switch box) i would take e.g. such scene controller
