Last summer we installed new electric sunshades on our house. A few weeks later in the autumn we discovered they are quite wind sensitive and need to be protected. We could not let them down when leaving the house and also at night we had to be careful or stand up and raise them in all rooms as soon there was wind or storm.
This was the point when I decided to install a windsensor to control the sunshades. So the first thing was to find something that works well with our existing house automation system “Homematic”, which was not easy and every solution that I found was either expensive and/or not working well together with Homematic.
