I purchased the Connexoon device through a reseller
Purchased a Hellioscreen awning with a Somfy RTS controller / motor. We wanted to automate this to alleviate the remote control need into my Home Assistant bridge. Which since purchasing the product I have found is impossible as for some reason, the integration is available for the rest of the world, but not Australia. If you're located in Australia and want simply the ability to open up an app that integrates with nothing else in the home then this is the product for you. if you're seeking true automation I would investigate alternate options.
We wanted motorised blinds. Shelled out the money for the Somfy motors, remotes and Connexoon. Connexoon being the hub. The aim was to connect this to my smart home. ALL and I mean ALL regions around the world get access to the Somfy Open Api - except for Australia. So now I have a Somfy Hub that is crippled. No where on their website does is this stated. Very disappointed and definitely would not recommend Somfy to anyone in Australia. Basically a dud product sold under false pretense.
Comment from Somfy Australia:
Hi Mike, we are sorry to hear of your disappointment. An open platform is our top priority and we are currently working on expanding our compatibility. Currently, your Connexoon Window RTS is compatible with IFTTT which allows for a connected home. It also means you can control your Somfy products with voice control via Google Home or Amazon Echo. You can find more information about our voice control compatibility, including quick start guides here: bit.ly/voice_control
Hope this helps.

We incorporate Somfy Product in many of our motorisation solutions working through their whole channel partner - Unique Screens and Blinds.
Somfy has been a valued supplier of superior window treatment motorisation products for our product line for over 5 years now. Solid, reliable and dependable, we have found their superior product range, and after sales service and support, to both Ideal Drape Makers and our clients, has contributed to our reputation for providing only quality custom window treatment solutions. The number of calls we receive from people who require replacement solutions for inferior motorisations products that were purchased elsewhere, primarily on the basis of price, is an almost weekly reminder of the importance of buying only quality branded and warranty backed motorisation solutions such as those provided by Somfy. Through our long association with their product line we have no hesitation in recommending Somfy to those looking for a solid, dependable and reliable product that will continue to provide trouble free operation for many years.
