Hello all, hope everybody’s fine. I have been working hard to set up Home Assistant (presently 0.109.6, System HassOS 3.13) to control my roller blinds according to the sun set and rise time. I feels there is much to be proud at all I’ve achieved: It’s up and running, I have some Hue lights automation working, I succeeded in grabbing RF codes with Broadlink Manager, which also identifies my Broadlink as rm2_pro_plus2. (I can send a command to a blind with it also) Next think is to get a basic communication with Broadlink with HA. No success after reading everything. I am anxious to start automating the blinds. I feel I might be close…
I first set this up as Remote, thinking I would be able to call the service “remote.send.command” on entity “remote.broadlink” that shows up in the Developer Tools, like this:
remote: - platform: broadlink host: 192.xxx.0.xx mac: xx:43:0D:xx:9C:xx
but I need a Devide ID and a command to send, don’t know where to set those up. (I thought I could send a RF string but apparently not)
I also read that it should not be set up as remote, but as a switch, so I tried this, but I get “The following integrations and platforms could not be set up: Switch.Broadlink” and “Invalid config for [switch.broadlink]: not a valid value for dictionary value @ data[‘switches’][‘blind’][‘command_on’]. Got 'sgB4AhkMDBgNFxkMGAwZCw0YDBgZ…”
switch: platform: broadlink host: 192.xxx.x.xx mac: B4:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx type: rm2_pro_plus2 timeout: 15 switches: blind: friendly_name: "Store 1 ouvrir fermer" command_on: 'sgB4AhkMDBgNFxkMGAwZC....' command_off: 'sgC8AhgMDRcNGBgM....'
I erased all the automations I had on the Broadlink app so it is not because of Cloud setup interfering.
I see two Broadlink instances connected with my wifi router, but only one works to make appear a broadlink.remote entity so I disregard the other one.
Would someone willing to help me ? Thank you for your interest, I would appreciate immensely.
