RFXtrx Cover

The rfxtrx platform supports Siemens/LightwaveRF and RFY roller shutters that communicate in the frequency range of 433.92 MHz.

First you have to set up your RFXtrx hub.



The easiest way to find your roller shutters is to add this to your configuration.yaml:

  - platform: rfxtrx
    automatic_add: true

Launch your Home Assistant and go the website (e.g., http://localhost:8123). Push your remote and your device should be added.

Once added it will show an ID (e.g 0b11000102ef9f210010f70) and you can verify that it works from the frontend. Then you should update your configuration to:

  - platform: rfxtrx
        name: device_name

The RFXtrx433e is required for RFY support, however it does not support receive for the RFY protocol - as such devices cannot be automatically added. Instead, configure the device in the rfxmngr tool. Make a note of the assigned ID and Unit Code and then add a device to the configuration with the following id 071a0000[id][unit_code]. E.g., if the id was 0a 00 01, and the unit code was 01 then the fully qualified id would be 071a00000a000101, if you set your id/code to single digit in the rfxmngr, e.g., id: 1 02 04 and unit code: 1 you will need to add 0 before, so 102031 becomes 071a000001020301.


Example configuration:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: rfxtrx
    automatic_add: false
    signal_repetitions: 2 # signal_repetitions: 1 for the Somfy covers (avoid to stop the motion after start)
      0b1100ce3213c7f210010f70: # Siemens/LightwaveRF
        name: Bedroom Shutter
      071a00000a000101: # RFY
        name: Bathroom Shutter

Configuration Variables



A list of devices.



Override the name to use in the frontend.



Fires an event even if the state is the same as before. Can be used for automations.

Default value:




To enable the automatic addition of new covers (Siemens/LightwaveRF only).

Default value:




Because the rxftrx device sends its actions via radio and from most receivers it’s impossible to know if the signal was received or not. Therefore you can configure the roller shutter to try to send each signal repeatedly.

If a device ID consists of only numbers, please make sure to surround it with quotes. This is a known limitation in YAML, because the device ID will be interpreted as a number otherwise.
