The driver manages the communication between the SDN driver and the Crestron Home™ (CH) processor’s COM port.
You will need an RS232-to-RS485 converter in order to use this driver to talk to the SDN hardware.
The shade configuration such as limits, IDs, and groups must be set in the motors using Somfy provided software like the SDN Motor Configuration Software, or the SDN Configuration Tool.
This driver will not have any functions when using the Home app. For this reason, we recommend creating a room that will be hidden (In this case we’ll call it Rack) to add the SDN driver into the CH user interface.
Note: Please verify the hardware make and model that you have. Check if the hardware image on our site matches the hardware that you have. If it looks substantially different, then the driver likely won’t work, but you can always contact us to be sure. Take full advantage of the trial period to verify the driver will work for your hardware.
