I was wondering if i could get some experience and feedback on Broadlink RM devices for IR control, Specifically RM mini 3 and 4.
I am actually an openHAB user, and i have several of these in my setup. I use them to remote control my air conditioners, and my televisions.
What i experience is that in some cases, between pressing a button and getting the action executed, these devices have delays of seconds. This basically ruins the TV remote control application.
I am trying to gauge if this is a device issue, or something wrong with my setup. I thought that asking on this forum would give me a lot more exposure on this devices response because it looks like these devices are adopted more by users of home assistant.
@felipediel , i have seen that you have done work on the plugin for home-assistant (I saw a number of topics where you worked on improving delay response). Would you be able to share your experience with these devices? My devices are not connected to the cloud (They have been deleted from the app, the app has been deleted, they have been reset to factory and joined to my network with broadlink_cli)
If the consensus is that these devices should have a good response when issuing commands at a sub-second rate (which is what usually happens when you are using your TV remote), then i will start looking at the other parts of my system (plugin, etc etc)
Thank you very much everyone for your help!
