Interlock / prevention accessories?

Cupertino, September 14, 2020

I have HomeKit windows (Hunter Douglas) that work well with my automations. Unfortunately, the windows open in such a way as to block the shades (all shades, not just these) from closing properly.

I have contact sensors on windows and it works in HomeKit (Aqara), but I can't find a way to block the closing of shadows if the contact sensor is open. I can do this with a shortcut (with an If command), but that wouldn't stop Siri from trying to close them with a "Hey Siri, close bedroom shadow" command or if the shadow button was pressed in the Home app.

Any suggestions?
