When I authorize my somfy Z-wave shades it only shows up as a battery tile, it doesn't let me open or close the blinds like it does straight from the smart things app
ActionTiles is not compatible with arbitrary Things. It is compatible with Things and their functionality based on a subset of the SmartThings Capabilities listed here: Compatible SmartThings Capabilities (Device Type abstractions).
As mentioned there, via Feature Request, we periodically add compatibility.
Incompatible Things can possibly be controlled by using a compatible Virtual Device synced via a SmartApp such as WebCoRE, or similar to the Universal Device Translator, discussed here: https://community.smartthings.com/t/release-universal-virtual-device-type-and-translator/47836?u=tgauchat
I also use Somfy blinds and I have OPEN/CLOSE/STOP buttons in ActionTiles BUT I used WebCoRE pistons and simulated switches for that.
If you are familiar with the WebCoRE I can give you simple step-by-step instructions.
my 3 somfy glydea shades that connect to ST via ZRSTI (ver 2) show up correctly in Action Tiles with a dimmer. Make sure you are using the community created DTH for them
Thanks for the post. Do you have a current most-recommended link for the SmartThings Community DTH, please?
hi Terry,This is the DTH i'm using with the glydea curtain motors. https://github.com/imnotbob/somfy-shades
Guys - I maintain the Z-Wave-Shade DH. Is there something it doesn't do or is there something else I need to do so it works properly with AT? This is not for blinds that require the ZRSTI, it is for the ones with z-wave built in.
As long as it is compliant with Capability "Switch" and "Switch Level" it should work fine.
I also submitted a pull request a couple days ago to the ST repository for the Springs Window Fashions DH as it only supported Switch Level and not Switch.
