The Somfy ZRSTi is a 16 channel window covering controller. Somfy's RTS (Radio Technology Somfy®) is a wireless technology which allows users to control motors for shades, blinds and other window coverings. Somfy offers the widest selection of indoor and outdoor window covering motors on the market. This product is essentially a translator that bridges the RTS signal to Z-Wave. If you have existing hardwired Sonesse 50 ILT2 (AC) motor and Sonesse 30 RS485 (DC) motors you should check out the Somfy ZDMI interface module. Generally, integrating Somfy motors meant bulky wiring and customized programming. The release of the ZRSTi means fully wireless, end to end shade control for any Z-Wave user.
The Z-Wave protocol has a wide range of hubs and controllers that make it easy to remotely control and configure automated scenes, rules and schedules! Honeywell and 2GIG manufactured alarm systems and automation controllers with Z-Wave functionality. The technology is somewhat new and has a lot to improve on. Currently, this controller offers discrete "open" or "close" commands. There is no stop function either. In other words, the current Honeywell and 2GIG compatible automation controllers do not have a way to keep the shade partially open/closed via Z-Wave. We hope this will change as the technology improves.
The good news is the status of the motor reports live so you can view status and toggle accordingly. Just keep this in mind before integrating your shade motors into any automated scenes. The ZRTSi module requires AC power and will control 16 Z-Wave nodes. Each node corresponds to an individual or a group of RTS motorized shades. The grouping and pairing process can be found in the setup guide.
