Type: component Home Assistant
Implementation difficulties: half
CAUTION: THIS COMPONENT IS CONSIDERED OBSOLETE STARTING FROM FEBRUARY 2019.
THE CUSTOM COMPONENT HAS BEEN ISSUED AT ITS PLACE "SmartIR Media Player"
The component "Broadlink IR Media Player”Is an additional custom component for Home Assistant which allows you to configure at that HUB of the entity of type "Media Player"Which in turn control, via physical infrared actuators Broadlink (RM Mini 3, RM PRO or similar models equipped with IR) generic devices, TVs, Decoders, receivers / amplifiers, typically controlled by infrared remote control or radio frequency.
In essence this very simple component - combined with an actuator Broadlink - makes it easy to integrate into the profirst home automation based on personale HUB of non-native home automation devices, making them such. To this proPosito we recommend reading the page dedicated to domotization of what is not domotic.
Obviously, this type of implementation not only opens up the possibility to control these devices, but also to insert them in a wider range of features, such as trivially remote control and automation.
This component is updated cyclically with the availability of new infrared codes and new configuration files to treat them; Furthermore, this our card illustrates how to create them propri.
Being a "custom" component (so not included with Home Assistant), must be installed. Installation is very simple: just add the folder containing the component under the "custom_components" folder together with the folders containing the configuration files. A brief guide to installing additional components is available on site Home Assistant.
An example of implementation (ie the TV, Decoder, Hi-Fi domotization) is the subject of the following projet:
