Connecting external blinds to the HomeKit using only the smart switch

Cupertino, February 12, 2021

I'm a new HomeKit user with a simple question - is it possible to connect my external blinds (powered and currently directed by the UP / DOWN buttons on the wall) to the HomeKit and run a simple automation using only smart switches? No additional modules, no additional cables, but just a simple smart switch and automation that would mimic assuming 5 seconds pressing the UP or DOWN button. & # x200B; Due to the location where I live and the style of my other switches, I was thinking about the Feller brand - they have some products that work with the Phillips Hue Bridge, which I already have.

[]( & # x200B; And to have this clarity, by the external blinds I mean something similar to the attached example.
