[userModule] Blind Control (Updated 2016/10/22)

Post by maros » 04 Nov 2015 22:53

Manages blinds and shades for optimal shading when hot (summer mode), and insulation when cold outside (winter mode). A virtual device will be created for each selected operations mode that can disable blind control actions.

It is possible to create multiple rules that manage several devices (eg. in different rooms). Rules can be created based on
  • Inside temperature
  • Outside temperature
  • Solar intensity (UV Index)
  • Solar altitude
  • Solar azimuth (location of the blind/window)
Tested with Z-Way version v2.2.2
