Harrison Curtains in Home Assistant

Post by abl »

Moved the last few weeks from Homeseer to Home Assistant, and with reading and many help from others managed to have almost everything working now... except for my Harrison curtains (quite old ones).

I read on the home assistant forum that I need to connect the RFXTRX to the RFXmanager and try to send the relevant codes. Which I did and these produce the following output (one example for opening one curtain).

================================================
18-1-2023 10:37:11:742= Curtain command
================================================
Packettype = Curtain1
subtype = Harrison
Sequence nbr = 7
housecode = A
unitcode = 3
Command = Open
Signal level = +10 dBm
------------------------------------------------
18-1-2023 10:37:12:404= 0402014300
Packettype = Receiver/Transmitter Message
subtype = Transmitter Response
Sequence nbr = 67
response = ACK, data correct transmitted
------------------------------------------------

The forum post stated that I need to use the "04 02 01 43 00" as an event (with some code in the configuration file). Unfortunately this doesn't work, but I think it is related to the fact that most examples have far more characters like: event: "07 18 00 0D 46 0F 02 00" and I see that the example uses 07 18 00 for all other send commands. Anyone knows how I can retrieve these (and whether that is my problem at all?

Use the latest RFXmngr:
20-1-2023 09:28:05:129= Curtain command: 07 18 00 03 41 03 00 00
================================================
Packettype = Curtain1
subtype = Harrison
Sequence nbr = 3
housecode = A
unitcode = 3
Command = Open
Signal level = +10 dBm

Just used the last version of RXFmngr (downloaded from the website), but still only receive 10 characters (and not the 16)?! Also saw that your command, as well as the example on the Home Assistant forum both use 07 18 00. So tried to add that, but also no command to my curtains...

Thanks a lot for your quick reply and help! Much appreciated!
Got the 434 and 868 running nicely in Home Assistant by now (based on your suggestions via mail)...

Downloaded the new RFXmgr and indeed can see now more characters (so thx a lot for providing this). Entered these in the configuration.yaml (see code below) and restarted the HA system. But unfortunately no movement of my curtains...

I don't know HA but are spaces allowed in the event?

This was indeed what was in the sample code that was mentioned by others on the HA forum.
Have also posted my issue on that forum, hopefully someone can help me there... Will let you know when I found a solution...
