I’ve got a Logitech Harmony Remote and MQTT enabled lights (switches set up in HA). I’d like to be able to turn off the lounge light when I use the “home cinema” command on my Harmony remote.
I’m sure it’s possible to do, but I don’t know where to start. It appears that the Harmony remote can’t interface with MQTT directly, so I’d need to use HA as the middleman - but having read the documentation, I’m still not sure on where to start.
Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Use emulated_hue. Harmony will pick them up and then you can have it be part of your home automation actions when you hit the home cinema button. That’s what I do, but I tie it to a scene rather than a single light (turn off all lights visible from living room and then dim the one in the back).
Yep, what @superm1 said, I use them as part of activities as well as with the light buttons on my 950, works flawlessly.
Thank to you both for the advice, I’ll check this out now and get it added :).
