RTS (Somfy Eolis 3D): how to distinguish wind vs no wind ?

#1 Post by MatrixRewriter » 19 Sep 2022, 13:16

Hi all,

I have an awning with a vertical blind at its end, and successfully paired them with RFLink so I can control them from Home Assistant, works great.

Now I also have a motion-based wind detector (Somfy Eolis 3D WireFree RTS) that sends me STOP commands when I shake it. But the problem is, it also seems to send STOP commands when the wind stops, and also periodically when there is no wind.

I don't see a way to distinguish these commands (correct me if I'm wrong). So I looked at the timings and I thought I identified a pattern. Something like (in reverse chronological order):

When wind starts:
"2022-09-18 13:30:01.440543+00:00"
"2022-09-18 13:30:01.421149+00:00"

About 30 seconds after wind stops:
"2022-09-18 13:31:13.842260+00:00"
"2022-09-18 13:31:13.828368+00:00"
"2022-09-18 13:31:11.740918+00:00"
"2022-09-18 13:31:11.721199+00:00"

But upon closer inspection, it does not appear to be 100% consistent - so I'm mixing up "Wind" and "No wind".

So, does someone know how I can reliably distinguish these "Wind" and "No wind" messages?

By the way:
* I "paired" the Eolis sensor with RFLink (but not sure if it's useful as the rolling code doesn't seem to advance)
* The Eolis seems to transmit "from" two different remote codes: 1xxxxxx and 1000000. So far I only looked at the 1st one
* I can provide debug logs, please let me know

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Yes.. I would need to look at debug logs to see what is going on.

Hi Stuntteam,

Wow, thanks for your quick answer! I grepped to extract all lines that contain "rflink" from the HA logs. The file is attached, let me know if it's sufficient :)

PS: got a TCP keepalive every minute that pollutes the logs, sorry about that!

Hi Stuntteam,

Any news regarding this? Did you see anything in the logs, or would a new capture help?

Thanks a lot
