I assume that the module offers 2 completely independent channels?
My planned configuration: Option A:
One VMBGPODW with one screen (is that a correct term?) for controlling of 2 blinds (4 buttons, 2 x up, 2 x down, long/short touches for partial/full movement) Option B:
Dedicated VMBGP2W for each window blind. Tha option feels old school, more expensive and require walking to the window to open the blind. Option C
Both combined. Same price as B - the controller will be in the room anyway.
Please excuse me if the question is dunb, but do I plan it in the right way?
P.S. I’m looking at a beautiful 100 m reel of green 2x2x0.8 mm2 EIB cable that will be used for the installation. Arrived today
I have the blinds in program. When the sun shines brightly, the VMBPIROB closes the blinds. When it gets overcast, the blinds open. After 17:00h, all blinds to the east open and stay open. The program sits in a GPOD and there are buttons on the GPOD to turn on and off the programs so I can very easily swith between manual, time based, light based or time plus light based control.
I know one person that will be delighted to hear about the RAL colour option.
I’m slowly switching my brain from the old school designing of electrical installation to “Velbus - your imagination is the limit”.
I need some hints - for the living room with the control module with display it’s all clear. But what for some other rooms? Should I install the control module in each room? Go wireless? Install dedicated switch? One for blinds and one for lights? Or combined? Aaaaa…
Can I kindly ask for hints what what make sense? The idea of dusk/down sensor for blinds control got included in my design, but I think it makes sense to have a manual control as well?

Where I can find the plans?
I decided to go with openHAB (test server up & running and I already love it even there is only TV and audio equipment connected). I’m working on my house layouts - I’ll ask for a check once I have it ready to share.
