  • What are the most important troubleshooting steps?

    1) The Crestron Home system loses control of the devices 30 minutes after reboot.

    • Please check the license.

    2) There is no control of any channel in one or more the  Somfy URTSI II units.

    • Check the Somfy URTSI II  power and antenna.
    • Check the wiring pinout. Pin 3 is TX, Pin 6 is RX, Pin 7 & 8 is ground.
    • Check that the rotary switch is set to 1.
    • Check that the URTSI II Address in the  Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver is set to 01.
    • Check that there are no 2 SomfyIPtoSerial Drivers with the same TCP Port.
    • Check that the Somfy URTSI II Driver TCP port matches the TCP port of the SomfyIPtoSerial Driver controlling the COM port where the URTS II is connected.
     

    3) Can not control units on channel mark as 0 in the Somfy URTSI II  rotary switch.

    • The rotary switch 0 marker means channel 16. The value 00 is not a valid channel on the  Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver.
     

  • What is the SomfyIPtoSerial Driver?

    The SomfyIPtoSerial works in tandem with the Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver. It helps to manage the communication with the URTSI II. Each instance of the SomfyIPtoSerial will manage the communication on a single COM Port. Each instance should have a unique TCP port. The SomfyIPtoSerial Driver is part of the Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver package.

  • Can I Control multiple URTSI II connected to multiple COM ports?

    Yes, The Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver allows the system to control multiple devices connected to multiple COM ports. Each COM port will need a dedicated SomfyIPtoSerial Driver.

  • Why does the Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver ask for an IP Address if it uses serial communication?

    The IP address is used to set the communication between the Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver and the SomfyIPtoSerial Driver. It should be set as the loopback address 127.0.0.1 to let the system know that both drivers are part of the same system.

  • Why does the Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver ask for a TCP port if it uses serial communication?

    The TCP port works as an identifier for the SomfyIPtoSerial Drivers. Each SomfyIPtoSerial Driver must have a unique TCP port.  The Somfy URTSI II Crestron Home Driver uses the TCP port to select the corresponding COM port.  As an example, let's use 2 Somfy URTSI II connected to 2 different COM ports in the system. Each URTSI II controls units in 5 locations. The Crestron Home system would implement 2 SomfyIPtoSerial Drivers to manage the COM ports. Each driver will have 1 unique TCP port number. No 2 SomfyIPtoSerial Drivers can have the same TCP port. For this example, the port numbers are 64401 and 64402. The Crestron Home system would implement 10 Somfy URTSI II Drivers, One per location. Five of the drivers would use the TCP port number 64401 and the other five 64402.

  • Can I control multiple Somfy URTSI II units connected in serial to a single RS-232 COM port?

    No, the Somfy URTSI II does not allow multiple URTSI II units connected in serial using RS-232 communication. It only allows it when using RS-485 communication.
