PowerView - Hunter Douglas

PowerView - Hunter Douglas

This driver works with the PowerView Hub, allowing to control Hunter Douglas shades with PowerView Motorization.

Connecting

To connect to the PowerView Hub, simply set the IP of the hub, the driver should automatucally connect when apply is pressed. Choose the Polling time and the Refreh polling time. The first one corresponds to the time between state updates from the hub, the second one is the time between asking the hub to refresh the state. If hub is not refreshed, the position of the shades will not be updated quickly when changed without the hub (eg. manual, remote control). A small number will keep the resources correctly updated on the BLI but it may drain battery faster and cause a constant blinking of leds in shades and repeaters. Please choose a value greater or equal than the polling time, if you don’t want to refresh insert -1.

Adding resources

Adding a resource can be done by introducing the shade Id as address or, preferably by pressing the Import resources button and then Load resources from connected system. Shades of type Bottom Up/Top Down or DuoLite will be discovered in separate resources, For example, Bottom Up/Top Down will discover 2 separate resources, one for the top rail and one for the bottom one. In the case of the Duolite shades, the resources disovered wil be the shade, the blackout and the tilt if the resource is the DuoLite with Tilt. The address of these related resources will be :X, all of them should be added to have full control of the shade.
