The best RF bridge / hub that can be learned to use with Apple Home / homebridge?

The best RF bridge / hub that can be learned to use with Apple Home / homebridge?

I have 14 Internorm blinds that are controlled by an iOS application that speaks to a Mediola AIO gateway / hub device. The iOS app is pretty rubbish and the devices are not compatible with HomeKit or Alexa. I developed a homebridge plugin so I can control them from the Apple Home app. It works, but after a while the Mediola device no longer works, and the blinds no longer respond to either the iOS application or the Home application, although it still works with its own remote controls. My conclusion is that the Mediola device cannot cope with HomeKit / homebridge surveys.

I think the blinds are RF controlled and I would like to find a hub / bridge / gateway / anything else you want to use instead of the Medium. I want one that:

* RF commands can be learned to open and close each blind person, learning from existing remote controls
* will work with Apple Home, so either directly HomeKit compatible, or through a homebridge plugin, or have an API available so I can write my own homebridge plugin
* does not need Internet access to operate (ie no subscription required, only LAN traffic, etc.).

Does anyone have any suggestions, please?
