Blinds/Cover Group

Problem Statement: Commands to open/close Ikea FYRTUR blinds are sent to each blind individually, causing some blinds to not open at random with the first time the command is sent.

Potential Solution: Send the command to a ZigBee Group so that one message is sent.

Where I can use some help:

  1. Is there any way to create a Blinds or Cover ZigBee Group? Right now I have a few Ikea blinds that are part of a dedicated Phoscon lights group. Unfortunately, Home Assistant doesn’t see them as a blinds group, and doesn’t provide the interface to open/close.
  2. Is there any practical way to troubleshoot why 1 or 2 blinds (out of 5) at random are not getting the command the first time it’s sent?

Does anyone have any suggestions with this scenario? Thanks in advance!

Upvote. Only learning this is a thing for the lights… so blinds doing the same would be a save. The ZigBee network gets very busy when operating a few of the ikea blinds.
I’m hoping this would reduce congestion
