How do I wire this Somfy remote box?

Could do with some guidance about wiring up my Owl screen to my Somfy remote.

Its a Somfy ERIT728840 as below:

I have a power lead (blue, brown and earth) and then a lead for the remote receiver as below:

Any idea what connects where?

Also, can I attach a 12v trigger cable to the box? If so how? I have run a cheapo 2 core speaker cable from my PJ which I understand I can use for this purpose.

In your photo, from the left....

LIVE IN (Brown)/ NEUTRAL IN (Blue) (from the mains)

COMMON / UP / DOWN (to the screen motor)

Three EARTHS (Green/Yellow) (one from the mains, one to the screen - guess third is spare)

IR Sensor connection (labelled up S1, + (usually red) and common (- usually black))

The last block is for a remote pushbutton (Up contact, Down contact, common)

I guess you could connect your projector to the remote pushbutton connector very easily using a 12 volt relay.

Hope this helps, Keith
