    Hi Patrick,
    Thanks for your comment. The issue you are facing is with the library due to the mega, not my code itself, so I believe I'm not in a better position than you to solve it. Anyway, the number of timers are limited, consider instead to have two smaller systems rather than one.
    And about the diodes, it is quite hard to explain written. If there would be just one switch you wouldn't even need one diode, but if you don't use the three diodes you will see what happends to the other blinds when you push another button. The one in the right seems useless, but it helps to rise the voltage enough not to propagate the ground to the common line.
