Move devices like blinds or windows based on timing information to a selected position.
Some devices cannot be set to a specific position, but only can be controlled by moving them up or down (eg. Fakro ARZ roller shutter). This module tries to circumvent this limitation by creating a virtual multilevel Switch device instead of the original device, that translates the user-selected position into timing information.
For example if a device usually takes 40 seconds to move from fully closed to fully opened state, then moving the device to 50% requires sending the move-up command, followed by a stop command 20 seconds later.
Furthermore this virtual device can check related devices. When two automation actuators operate on the same physical object (eg. blind and window chain drive) , and interfere witch each other then checking for related devices ensures proper functionality and prevents damage to the equipment.
Tested with Z-Way version v2.2.2
