How one can output window blind position if the shading control is other than OnIfScheduleAllows e.g. if the control is OnIfScheduleAllows or OnIfHighGlare etc.

One way I can think of is to use EMS sensors and actuators and then using Window Shading Control,Control Status as an output variable.

Any ideas?

Have you checked the .rdd file for the available outputs related to blinds and shading? You may find what you need there without having to write an EMS routine.

I checked it before by using "Blind" as a word but now I have found this Surface Shading Device Is On Time Fraction by using shading word, which I think is right output for this case. Thanks for pointing it out.
