Edit: while I love my little switchbot, if your remote is IR or 433mhz RF it would probably be cheaper, more elegant (and more fun) to build yourself a little esp32 remote transmitter using this component:
So are you basically creating your own ‘smart’ remote with ir/rf codes using the esp32 and the esp32 needs to be in line of sight with the devices you want to control?
Wouldn’t it be cheaper or cost just a much to get a Broadlink to learn the codes?
No I don’t. I do have issues with some xiaomi bluetooth temp & humidity sensors with my home assistant where ha is no longer able to get a signal from them.
Your Switchbot Bot is still working for you with no disconnect even after the Bot has gone to sleep? I am thinking about picking one up to turn on my tv box. It uses bluetooth to transmit the signals. My main concern is that the tv box is quite far from HA and the Bot may be out of BT range.
I have the Switchbot Thermometer/Hygrometer and followed this guide to setup.
