In the manual for the Somfy RTS interface the say you can use ir
C. INFRARED OPERATION
1. The RTS Interface is compatible with Somfy’s Single & 8 Channel transmitters. Connect an infrared sensor to the
bottom of the Interface control board.
2. Each individual motor is activated by first aiming the transmitter at the sensor and pressing the desired unit number
pressing the UP or DOWN buttons. Press the center button to STOP the window treatment at any time.
3. NOTE: There needs to be a 1.5 second delay between successive directional commands or address ranges.

The Shade guys didnt leave an IR Remote for my programer in the field. So if anyone has the Hex that would be great. Very much apreciated. I did try the Hex that was in the Mega code14 list but it didnt work.


Thanks,

I have the IR codes for you in a .rcc file for URC MX-3000.

Do you wish to have this file? I really don't have the hex codes.

Are you able to control the drapes with the built in relay contacts?

Do you know how to program it?

Are you in the States or in Canada?

Ok, try to find the tech support number so that they can explain to you how to program the RTS with the drapes.

Last time I did this was 10 months ago. I'm scared that if I explained it to you, I would forget something.

Somfy Canada (because I'm in Quebec) told me over the phone how to do this.

Keep me posted.

In case you haven't resolved this, I am a Somfy RTS expert.
Also pretty knowledgeable about Somfy's product line.
I find that I usually know more than the average Somfy tech.

There are two ccfs in the Pronto Files section.
We can't give you a good answer, or maybe any, without the make and model of everything.

Shady,

We have a job coming up with Somfy and have never delt with them. I would like to pick your brains at some point.
