[Release] Shady - Group your shades & blinds and control as a single device

any way i could say “Hi Google OPEN Shady” and it will open instead of saying “Hi Google TURN ON Shady?”

Hi, I love this plugin. I have an issue with my Somfy blinds with the plug in… basically the Somfy plugin TaHoma® by Somfy has three values, Open, Close and MY… my is set midpoint… I’m not bothered about this, but as your plugin only goes to 99% the Somfy blinds don’t see it as open as its not 100% and there for use the MY command and only open halfway… is there anyway to code it so that Somfy plugin believes it’s fully open and not 99% ?

Hope this makes sense, really hope it can work.

The shades I created in Shady work great when I manually adjust the switch but for some reason I can’t get them working in scenes or automations. Am I missing something obvious here?

Not just you, seems to coincide with the changes that moved Automations in to the RulesAPI for me (if you weren’t aware the February app update for both iOS and Android updated automations and scenes tonuse the RulesAPI as the underlying function - also the source of a lot of automation and scene update/save/display isssues in the app.)

Im pretty sure that its impacted this smartapp/DTH too.

@whoismoses Eric are you still maintaining this?

No response. I’m completely new to automated shades so I don’t know what everyone else is doing. Is there any other alternative to achieve the same as this app?

I jut switched my shades from using the “Z-wave Shade” DTH to “Springs Window Fashions Shade” and the Shady groups no longer work in scenes and automations. I wanted to switch the DTH because the standard one uses the UI of the new app and the IDE will be retired at some point.

In the log, I see the following message, which might be a clue on why it’s failing:
“java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Command ‘on’ is not supported by device ebb1a323-abcb-4b53-8a88-524fe433690f of type ‘Springs Window Fashions Shade’. Supported commands: [setLevel, refresh, ping, open, close, pause, presetPosition, stop] @line 135 (up)”

Looks like the standard DTH no longer supports the ‘on’ and ‘off’ commands and it needs to be changed to ‘open’ and ‘close’.

*THAT’S what did it… Been wracking my brain trying to figure it out.

Er, - I mean - yes, I can confirm this…

Thanks for figuring this out! I have Spring Window Fashion windows as well and that was the device I added when I set up my shades. Did you change your DTH script and test it? I am wondering if you or someone else that has updated it can post their script. Your help is much appreciated.
