Velux KLF200

Velux KLF200 - firmware v0.2.0.0.0.0 and greater

This driver was developed to interact ONLY with the firmware v0.2.0.0.71.0 and above. If your velux system is outdated please update it before setting up this driver, otherwise it won’t be able to connect and control your system.

Connecting to the system

Connection settings are:

  • Host: IP address or hostname of your Velux system
  • Password: If you haven’t yet changed the password the default one is at the back of the product, it is recommended for you to change it for security reasons.
  1. Go to the Systems tab and add a new Velux system.
  2. Fill Host and Password with the information you already have. Then hit the Apply button. In a few seconds, the Velux banner at “System connection status” (in the bottom of the page) should turn itself to green indicating it was successfully connected.
  3. Move to the resources tab, then select Velux in the list of systems at the left.
  4. To automatically find all connected resources, go and click the “Import resources” button, then “Load resources from connected system”. A list of all resources will start to appear in a matter of seconds.
  5. You have to specify the Area/Zone you want each, then click “Add” near the resources you want.

Available resources (RESOURCE TYPE)

The resources you will be able to control are:

  • Lights (DIMMER - code 0x0180 and 0x01BA): Even if the light is an ON/OFF light, it will appear as a DIMMER. Any LEVEL different from 0 is ON.
  • On/Off switches (GPIO - code 0x03C0)
  • Window openers with integrated rain sensor (SHADE - code 0x0100 and 0x0101)
  • Scene (any previously created scene on the system)

Resource Address

Resources for this system should be added using the discovery feature.
