I’ve had pretty good success repurposing cheap rf remotes for smart home control. Thought I’d share.
My Sonoff RF Bridge flashed with ESPhome learns and listens for the RF codes and triggers whatever you want.
I’ve even printed some little desktop stands/mounts for them.
Labels are a bit rustic but they do the job. I generally have them programed as up, down or toggle.
I find them to be pretty reliable. The Sonoff receives the signals lighting fast.
