I have now added support for the first actuator in OpenNetHome - the RollerTrol automation systems. RollerTrol manufactures motors for automating shades and blinds. Most of their products are very DIY-friendly, and one of their more popular products is a small tubular motor that fits in the IKEA Tupplur Blind.
RollerTrol uses remote controls on the 433MHz band, so they can be controlled with Tellstick, Bitbanger or home made RF-Transmitters from OpenNetHome.
The RollerTrolBlind-Item in OpenNetHome, can send the standard Up, Down and Stop commands, but also the configuration commands: Confirm, Limit and Reverse.
The Item presents the current position of the blind in real time, as percentage of the full travel. You can also define two custom stop positions where you can send the blind.
The Item is available in the nightly build.
I have added support for the monochrome lamps in the Philips Hue range called Hue Lux. These are a lower cost version of the lamps in the Hue series that does not support different colors, only dimming. I actually implemented this support without having access to a lamp myself, just using the excellent specs on Philips' site. With help from members on the forum I could get the feature verified and tested - thanks for the help! The lamps support auto detection like the ordinary Hue-lamps.
It is in the nightly build.
