  • Connecting keypad buttons to Somfy blinds via I/O Linc

    Hi all,

    I'm fairly new to Insteon and in the process of kitting out our house. I have a question regarding the connection of a 6 button Keypad to control our Somfy roller shades via the I/O Linc Drape Control kit (http://www.smarthome.com/i-o-linc-in...ntrol-kit.html).

    The good news is that I have the I/O Linc set up and it is working to control the roller shades.

    The issue is that I'd like to have one button on the Keypad to close the shades, and one button to open the shades. Right now as it's configured the Keypad buttons will always seem to toggle the shades open/closed. I.e. one button must both open and close the shades.

    Is having two separate buttons (one for opening, one for closing) possible? I expect I have my scenes configured incorrectly or something.

    Thank you in advance,

    Paul

    Change one button to On-only and the other button to Off-only.

      Thanks for the quick answer Stu. Can you clarify what you mean please?

      I set up a scene for the blinds called "Blinds closed", with button C on the Keypad as the controller and the I/O Linc as the responder, set to off. When this scene is assigned to the Keypad button, it acts like a toggle switch, and pressing it again will open the blinds.

      I'm sure I am missing something!

        Change the buttons to non-toggle as described in the Owner's Manual.

                I want to confirm that I need only ONE drape control kit - somebody told me I need two, one for open, and one for close...

                  One kit is all that's needed for both open and close.
