Thermostat automation with IR blaster

Hi, i’m pretty new in HA and i’m having trouble when trying to create an automation with thermostat card. So i wanted every time i press the + or - button, my IR blaster will also do the same thing to my AC…

i appreciate every advice i can get thanks.

I do not think thermostat card generates any triggers when + or = buttons are pressed. Instead you should look at numeric state change of set temperature and in from to state change is positive, you know + button was pressed. If it is negative, minus was pressed.
Side comment; I’m not sure if this is the best way to manage temperature, as If this is IR controlled thermostat, you most likely have no information back abouit real status (stateless deevice). So it very easy to get real target temperature to be way offf what thermostat things it is.
