HAI recently announced native control for Somfy ILT motors with the 3.4 firmware. This means you no longer need to use RTS or Z-WAVE to control shades via the OmniPro II controller. Last night I connected up and tested my friends system (also using Myro) and I’m happy to announce that HAI has hit another home run! You get “real-time” feedback as well as the ability to set to a specific “light level”, like 50% (which is part way).
I have included a wiring diagram on connecting the HAI to the Somfy RS-485 ILT tap (also known as the Somfy SDN). Then you just need to get the Motor/Group code and enter that into PC Access. What I thought would be a difficult process of trial and error actually turned out to work on the first try!
Here is a sneak peak of the Myro:Home iPhone application. As you can see, progress has been coming along. I’ve been getting the design finalized and now I’m just tweaking the look and feel a bit. The mobile framework has also been set in the core Myro:Home application which acts as a server on your home network. The iPhone version connects into Myro and loads and controls the HAI panel via a secure channel.
The key focus has been getting control of your home via the iPhone in the quickest time possible. As it works now, I can load and control in less than 3 seconds (if on WIFI).
– MYRO CONTROL – Myro:Home
I’ve been learning Objective-C and have been working on a few iPhone apps… one of which will be the official Myro:Home iPhone application which will allow you to control your HAI panel and view IP cameras. This application will only be available to users of the Myro Control 8″ In-Wall Panel (MYRO:8W). The application is in early BETA and should be ready for release beginning of November.
