Sounds to me like this was a viable product. Has anyone come up with a replacement? Paceyben, why can it not be duplicated with different hardware, as the original hardware is now discontinued?
Never having seen one, I'm left wondering why it no longer exists.

The z-wave bridge also called ZRTSI is a controller that actually receives transmission signals very particular to the Z-Wave spectrum.
Upon receiving this signal, it converts them into meaningful control commands so that your Somfy's wireless motors can operate accordingly.
It is also like a repeater within your mesh network.

This ZRTSI contains 1 base node plus 16 virtual nodes which are actually 16 radio technology Somfy (RTS) channel list.

Paceyben. Sounds like you had a great fix there. I just installed 7 somfy blinds and could use one if there are any still available. Thanks in advance!

Paceyben, I too am interested in your somfy-insteon bridge. I have 4 sets of blinds now with 2 more in the future. I use the somfy 4 led remote now, but would like to connect it to my insteon hub for better usage. Would you please send set up info & cost info to my email. Thanks much.

If paceyben is still out of stock, I have one available for sale that I purchased from Ben in 2013 and used until 2016 when we moved. It has instructions and has been stored in its original box.

Please email me if interested.

*If this message is inappropriate please let me know and I will remove. I thought it might be helpful as these are hard to find and it was a great solution for me. Thanks!

I too have one. My URTSII died and I decided to go with Z-wave instead. I have the instructions, but not the original box. Make me an offer if you're interested.

I am so sorry, but I no longer have it. I did go with the ZRTSII for z-wave and have been very pleased with its operation.

Not a problem. Thanks anyway. An Insteon Hub is in use so unfortunately, the Z-Wave interface will not work. :-(

I threw away the Insteon hub long ago. The ISY is so much better. So much more control and now with the addition of the Polisy, there are so many more things that can be controlled. The ZRTSII, of course, with z-wave connects directly through ISY.

Excellent suggestion. Which ISY and supplier do you recommend? Thank you!

If you want to research the ISY994i line of controllers.
You can start looking at their main site. https://www.universal-devices.com/

I control my Somfy controls with an ISY and a Somfy Zwave interface.
