Broadlink RMPro+ remote vs switch platform

Hi all,

What is the difference (functionally) between the remote platform and the switch platform in Home Assistant for this device? They both seem to be used to control devices, but one uses remote.broadlink.send and the other uses switch.broadlink.send. Am I missing something more basic?


Hi, I was able to find the original pull request that details the change

TLDR; it makes command learning much easier and makes command sending more powerful


Just to make it clear.
The pull request is for adding the remote platform.

So broadlink switch is the old way of using broadlink devices.
Broadlink remote is the new way which has easier training.
