tip

This blueprint is part of the Controllers-Hooks Ecosystem. You can read more about this topic here.

Description

This Hook blueprint allows to build a controller-based automation to control a cover. Supports opening, closing and tilting the cover.

info

An automation created with this blueprint must be linked to a Controller automation. Controllers are blueprints which allow to easily integrate a wide range of controllers and use them to run a set of actions when interacting with them. They expose an abstract interface used by Hooks to create controller-based automations.

See the list of Controllers supported by this Hook for additional details.

Requirements

Controller Automation

Required

To use this blueprint you need to first create an automation with a Controller blueprint. You can then create an automation with this Hook, making sure that you provide the same controller device or entity used in the corresponding Controller blueprint. This key step will link the two automations and ensure the Hook will respond to events fired by the Controller.
