🎮 ZHA, deCONZ, Zigbee2MQTT - Ikea E1744 SYMFONISK rotary remote Universal blueprint - all actions - control lights, media players and more with Hooks

I suggest looking at Switch Manager. It works with the IKEA devices including this rotary one.

Thanks so much for the tip.

Woah that integration is amazing!! Setup the sound remote and it works perfectly.

Just wish I had known about this one before manually creating automations for each of my 30 or so Friends of Hue Lightswitches, Hue Dimmer Switches and Ikea Buttons over the past couple of days…

How did you install the integration? I’m trying via HACS, but I’m getting an error…

:thinking:

Just went into HACS and clicked install. No issues. I am using the Home Assistant OS install. Are you sure you got the correct integration selected?

Or do you have some “exotic” installation of HA?

Yes I’m using standard HA, nothing exitic. and latest version…

When I click the “add integration” I’m taken to this URL: Link to Integrations: add integration – My Home Assistant

Can you confirm that this is the correct integration?

Hello @n00bish , @drsound & HA fans,

I experiment with HA since about a year (considering myself newbie).
I get a Docker install of HA.

I created a ikea_e1744.yaml file located at /home/[USER]/hass-config/blueprints/automation/homeassistant/ using

~$ sudo nano /home/[USER]/hass-config/blueprints/automation/homeassistant/ikea_e1744.yaml

and pasted there the content from @drsound since I understand it was never merged.

I reloaded config using
Developper Tools > YAML > All Yaml Configuration
(Tried Developper Tools > YAML > Automations as well)

However the blueprint does not appear magically in the blueprint list…

Any idea why?

Hey @LeoG . Do you not have the “import blueprint” button on the docker instance of HA?

If you do, then click it, and paste it the url: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/EPMatt/awesome-ha-blueprints/157f8964a777ac5ae4acd108c7cc7766256fe44f/blueprints/controllers/ikea_e1744/ikea_e1744.yaml

This is the link @drsound posted ealier. It worked perfectly for me :slight_smile:

I have this remote working fine in both HA and Node red.
Not sure what the issue is.
Although I recommend getting the new that is not spinning. That is a far much better remote. The only downside of that remote is that it’s all white and it’s really hard to see what button is what.

Anyways, the old remote. Here is my automation for that remote
