Help needed.
I sent this by e-mail to you Paceyben since you seem to be a Somfy expert.
I got my Somfy RTS30 shades installed and need some help getting the dry contact interface to work. Should I use the Somfy add a remote copy/paste method. Instructions are to press and hold the programming button in the remote, then the button on the interface. Or, should I press the up and down buttons on the remote to put the motors into programming mode. I did the copy paste method first, which worked for 4 of the 5 motors. One of the shades got de-programmed, but I finally got it working. If the motors are put into programming mode by pressing the program button on the remote, then do they go out of programming mode once I press the button on the interface. I called Somfy and they were not helpful.

Edit:
When I first tried this only one motor responded to the i/o linc. Not all motors had gone into programming mode, I suspect. I then did it again, and 3 others responded, not the first. One of the 5 seemed to go back to factory mode. When I did the programming the second time, it likely deleted the interface from the first motor. Getting somewhere, see page 8:
http://www.av-outlet.com/images/shade/sonesse-st30.pdf

Devices (approx): ISY-994 Pro, 15 KPLs, 33 switchlincs, 4 outletlincs, 2 door sensors, 3 Lamp-lincs, 5 Appliance-lincs, i/o-lincs for ELK WSV2, Somfy bridge,and garage door sensor, Leak Sensors, 2 motion sensors, 4 access points, about 20 X10 devices.

Could you please email me as well? The first round of RTS enabled shades will be arriving next week and would much rather use keypads than the Somfy remotes!

Paceyben, I am also intrested in linking Somfy-Insteon to control 10 shades. I am also early in the setup so I want to make sure that I will have what I need to make it work correctly. Also email is restricted so I can't send email to you.

Ben can you please send me details of your device. I have 8 Somfy ILT2 motors with a tap and RS232 -RS485 converter. I am hoping your device will enable me to communicate with Indigo.

Hi Paceyben,

I have been looking for a way to control my somfy blinds for sometime now and this seems like an easier way to do it. I am new to this forum and not able to send you an email directly, but would love to get some information on this bridge if this is still the way to go.

I would like info on your somfy bridge, how it works and with what models? I have a friend putting in 6 shades and would like to control them from a 8 button kpl/isy 994.

Same as audio sports.

Would like to receive some information as well. We are just getting started with insteon + ISY994 and are looking at installing a set of motorized shades to replace what we have in our master bedroom. If all goes well, more rooms would get automated as well.

I've been using the bridge for a year now, remain thrilled with it. I'm adding Somfy tilt motors to some of my blinds and the programming would be simplest if the bridge can trigger the MY command through the Universal Interface. Is there a BEEP Duration that equates to the MY command of the RTS transmitter?

Thanks for your comment. MY should be the same as stop. When the blind is moving it acts as stop. When stationary it acts as MY.
