I’m a new beta tester of the homey app, before purchasing homey bridge or homey pro.
I understood the homey app can be used without any homey device. It’s indeed working for my philips hue lights, but I don’t manage to install any other appli, like yamaha (AV Receiver), broadlink (RM4), which doesn’t need the bridge theoretically
Do you now why? Would it work if I purchase un Homey Bridge?
Somfy RTS is an RF protocol app. So one day Athom may decide to make it compatible with the bridge. but currently it is not. Athom may also expect Somfy to build something. If Somy will they will probably make it a cloud connection to their Tahoma bridge. Them implementing Somfy RTS is not think likely as Homey then competes with their Tahoma product.
It’s a “lowest common denominator” device: limited in its use, supports most of the devices that regular folks have (a few smart lightbulbs, a few smart switches, etc), and it’s cheap. It’s expressly not meant for people that want to control every aspect of their (smart) home or want more advanced features.
Well, if you’re really diligent, you check all the apps for each of the devices you want to control to see if that app has Homey Cloud/Beta support.
