Open close module does also stop mid way?

    All that may possible if you know precisely which switches and exactly how they function as well as which blind motors plus their requirements. Keep in mind that many blinds often have more that up and down, they also have tilt. Without detailed specifications, any advice is purely speculation.

      Hi Stusviews
      after reading deeper in the Insteon site, here is the combination I am thinking to use for the purpose:

      I add 220v motors to all blinds. I install a standard wired wall switch next to each blind for local command.
      install open close 2444-422 module behind each wall switch
      i use a wireless switch 2342-442 to open/close all blinds with a single command.

      would it work?
      thanks

        Yes, that will work.

          I have noted that neither open close micro module neither the wireless switch are supported by Insteon+

          Can they be supported in the future following software updates?

            That's entirely an Apple decision. Insteon Labs has no control over what Apple will allow. When and if Apple gives the OK, then support can be added to the Hub+.

              But when and if Apple will give the OK, will I need to buy new modules and controllers or the existing ones will be ok?

              should I go for the ISY as hub, does this work like the Insteon hubs (allows to control the items remotely via Internet, it connects directly to the router, it has an iOS, android and Windows phone app, the need for the PC is only for programming)?

              thanks

                You will not need to replace anything. Devices added supplement what's already approved.

                IMO. an ISY is the way to go. Smartphone access requires another app.

                  Hey guys, can you believe you can open a blind half way from the Windows Store insteon app for PC ? Otherwise impossible from Android app or wall switches.
                  I made a few scenes with different opening stages of the blinds to use this ability from my Android phone.
