have 18 Velux window blinds (inside in and outside windows) that I would like to control through KNX push buttons mounted on the wall in each correspondingly named room. Right now they are configured through the velux controller and all work in home assistant.
velux blinds are named:
cover.<room-name >-< inside | outside >
Buttons in KNX are defined in ETS as blind control element (short press/:
up/down + long press:
start/stop with the appropriate knx datatypes)
I have three questions:
- how to define the knx button setup for a combination of knx<—>velux setup? It seems like
exposebut that only works for sensors and switches or?
- do I need to define an automation or can the system somehow understand that the knx cover entity is equivalent to the velux entity?
- I guess this will be a templated automation instead of rolling out 18 individual automatons. Has anyone got a working equivalent or pointers?
Thanks for any pointers that might help.
