ZHA - IKEA five button remote

You can see if the buttons are sending the expected commands. Go to developer tools, Events, and in “Event to subscribe to” type “zha_event” then click “Start listening”

Press the buttons and look at the packets to see what your buttons send.
Note that one press may send multiple commands

Event x fired x:
{
    "event_type": "zha_event",
    "data": {
        "device_ieee": "x",
        "unique_id": "x",
        "device_id": "x",
        "endpoint_id": 1,
        "cluster_id": 8,
        "command": "move_with_on_off",
        "args": [
            0,
            84
        ]
    },
... 

Check the endpoint and cluster, command and args.
Long up should be

        "endpoint_id": 1,
        "cluster_id": 8,
        "command": "move_with_on_off",
        "args": [
            0,
            84
        ]

Long down should be

        "endpoint_id": 1,
        "cluster_id": 8,
        "command": "move",
        "args": [
            1,
            84
        ]

(Note there may be multiple commands sent but check if one of them is the above)

If you see no messages at all then the buttons aren’t sending commands, perhaps they are bound to a light directly in which case you can try resetting the remote and re-adding to ZHA.

If you get actions but it sends a different cluster, command or args, you can change the blueprint to match what your remote sends.

Yeah interesting, I’ve got this instead for long up

        "cluster_id": 8,
        "command": "move_with_on_off",
        "args": [
            0,
            83
        ]
    },

And this for long down:

        "cluster_id": 8,
        "command": "move",
        "args": [
            1,
            83
        ]
    },

So seems like the “args” being 83 instead of 84 is enough to stop it working?

That would definitely be the cause, as that is how the trigger determines the appropriate button is pressed.

The blueprint can be changed so that either type of remote should work.
You can add this at the end of the blueprint file: (after sequence: !input button_right_long)

      - conditions:
          - "{{ command == 'move_with_on_off' }}"
          - "{{ cluster_id == 8 }}"
          - "{{ endpoint_id == 1 }}"
          - "{{ args == [0, 83] }}"
        sequence: !input button_brightness_up_long

      - conditions:
          - "{{ command == 'move' }}"
          - "{{ cluster_id == 8 }}"
          - "{{ endpoint_id == 1 }}"
          - "{{ args == [1, 83] }}"
        sequence: !input button_brightness_down_long

Thanks all, that worked. Out of interest is there a way of reloading blueprints without a restart? Rebooting was the way I managed to get the changes to start working.

Incidentally, the Tradfri two button remote (square with 1/0 buttons) also uses move_with_on_off [0,83] for long up, and move [1,83] for long down, but the rest of the commands are different because it only has two buttons rather than five buttons.

You use “Reload Automations” under “Configuration/Server Controls” which also reloads blueprints.

Original blueprint in first post is now edited to reflect 1, 83 as well

If you want “Left Button Short Press” and “Right Button Short Press” to mimic the default behaviour when paired with the IKEA Tradfri hub you can do the following:

Left Button Short Press

service: light.turn_on
data_template:
  hs_color:
    - >-
      {{ ((state_attr('light.living_room_lamp', 'hs_color')[0] or 0) - 30) % 360
      }}
    - 100
  transition: 1
entity_id: light.living_room_lamp

Right Button Short Press

service: light.turn_on
data_template:
  hs_color:
    - >-
      {{ (30 + (state_attr('light.living_room_lamp', 'hs_color')[0] or 0)) % 360
      }}
    - 100
  transition: 1
entity_id: light.living_room_lamp

Not optimal as the state_attr in the template refers to the entity_id, which takes away from the spirit of Blueprints, but it gets the job done :slight_smile:

Hi, trying to use this to control my sonos in the kitchen in the same way you are. mind posting the full automation? cant figure out the next/prev station + tts announcement of selected station :frowning:

Here is the full automation. You need to create an input-select “helper” which has the name of the sonos favorites listed. Small / large letters DO matter :slight_smile:

I created an input_select.sonos_stations helper using the dropdown type with a few of my Sonos stations in the dropdown fields. I can’t get the left and right buttons to trigger it. The middle button and volume buttons are working. I think it is an issue with the input_select helper. Any ideas?

This is awesome! I loved my IKEA remotes more after this blueprint.
I think that the middle (on/off) button also has a long_press event. Any idea how I could include that one in the blueprint too?

I got it all working. My google translate service had a different name. I changed it to use the short press for next/previous track and the long press to change the stations.

First off, I love this Blueprint! Exactly what I was looking for!

Now, I actually AM using it with a light, specifically an LED RGB strip. I use On/Off for (duh) On/Off. Brightness is Brightness and Left/Right cycles through preset colors.

The problem I’m having is this: Cycling to a preset color requires calling the light.turn_on service. So, even if the light is off, if I hit Left or Right, the light comes on and moves to the next color. Is there a way to make it so Bright/Dim and Left/Right doing nothing if the light is off?

Thanks.

You can add a condition before the action such as
