I am looking into developing a Somfy RTS Remote app as adding a remote to the Sub-GHz app does not seem to be the right approach given that I would like to control seven blinds and one automatic awning.
Having looked around on the web a bit on the web, I think I have a fair idea on how to do the UI, but so far I am at a loss on the radio part.
It would be great if anybody could help me by providing an approach, i.e. a rough sketch, on how to go about adding Flipper support for sending RTS commands.
Any pointers to relevant parts in the source code of the Flipper Zero firmware or references to example FURI apps is also welcome!
Questions I have include:
- Should I add a codec and somehow use the FURI API?
- Should I somehow write code directly for the MCU without using the FURI API?
Regarding the last point, the projects like Somfy Remote Lib that targets ESP8266 and ESP32 devices, but here we are dealing with a more generic MCU (ARM).
Please note that although I have extensive programming experience, I am new to embedded development, so there are gaps in my understanding here.
