the driver works, but there is a problem with the state.
After 15min the switch seems to be in a freeze state and I lose the state of the curtain (go to closed). To resume the switch I have to press the “up” button first and then it’s possible to command it again.
I’m not a programmer or an it expert, I can’t solve this problem…
The SmartThings tile reports the Blind as ‘Closed’ when the blind in open and visa versa. Can the coding specific to SmartWings be updated to correct this issue? There are no settings within the device settings to reverse the state of the blind.
At some point since December, I noted that it was working in reverse, meaning that when the blind opened, it displayed and reported within the app as ‘Closed’. Since I have been busy between my day job and making videos for my YouTube channel, I did not address the issue until today. So it has been broken for some time now. I noticed it following one of the ST updates. I am unsure what date this issue surfaced, but it has been several months now. I did try switching drivers but I was unable to find an alternative that worked.
The blind is currently open. This is how the blind is reported in the ST app, (see ‘Blind2’):
This revised driver (2023-03-14T17:18:20.824840108) was downloaded to my hub and I tested the blind’s operation. The blind is still reporting the state of ‘Closed’ when the blind is in fact OPEN and ‘Open’ when the blind is CLOSED. So this change did not fix the issue. What is now happening is that open and closed buttons in the detail screen now operate in reverse. The app requires that you tap “Close” to OPEN the Blind and “Open” to CLOSE the Blind. So I guess is was functioning better under the former configuration even though the blind status was reporting in reverse.
