I have a problem.
I have recently purchased a luxaflex powerview blind combined with the Hunter douglas hub V2.
I can control it via the powerview app, but i can’t add it (yet) to the smartthings app.
I had read that there is some sort of app written by someone, but i have really no idea how i should get that app onder “My apps”.
Can somebody please help me out??
Thank you for you help!
Option 1: use the free IFTTT service to activate scenes
You can easily activate scenes on the powerview with IFTTT:
Option 2: use a community – created custom code integration
There is a more complex integration with many more features, but you will need the classic version of the smartthings app to make that work, it doesn’t work in the new version.
For more information about that you can ask the people in the following thread:
I wrote up an app and set of device types that allow you to use your SmartThings hub to control a Hunter Douglas PowerView Hub without requiring the extra Hunter Douglas RemoteConnect feature.
I’ve been running this integration now for about 5 months now and have found it to stable. It allows me to:
discover shade and scene already configured via PowerView
control my PV shades and PV scenes via the ST app
add my PV shades to ST scenes and other automations
use both Google Home and Alexa to execute voice control of my shades
My system is comprised of:
HD PowerView hub v1
HD Sillhouette Shades
ST hub v2

Please let me know if you try this out and if you run into any issues!
Also, if you want more information on the general terms and concepts of how custom code works with the classic app, see the following FAQ
So you’re new to SmartThings, you asked a question, and someone suggested “custom code” as an answer.
Or you were browsing the forums, and you found something that sounded like it would be perfect for what you wanted, but again, “uses custom code.”
What does that mean, how hard is it to do, and what’s the difference between a “SmartApp” and a “Device Type Handler”?
(Note: the official terminology has changed a couple of times. “device type handler,” “device handler,” “DTH,” and “device type” all mean the same thing, and you will find all these terms used in the forums.)
SECTION I: SMARTAPPS AND DEVICE HANDLERS: WHAT THEY ARE
SmartAPPS: Tiny Programs to decide what a specific device should do when, or to collect the information from a specific device
SmartApps, including the various f…
So it just depends on what you need.
Thank you for your quick reply!
I am going for the option 2. I saw the post from “Johnvey”, at the moment i am struggling to import the app via repo??
I am using the classic app always, don’t like the other app.
You should ask questions about that code in that thread. The author will be automatically notified when new posts are added to the thread, and other people who are using it may also be able to help.
