Broadlink RM IR device api

Not a device driver but since I've seen it come up here before I wrote a http api for broadlink devices that will work with the http get switch driver in hubitat. It has a web ui for learning and listing the commands and simple get api for communication. Supports multiple devices and macro requests. I'm using this myself and have been quite happy with it.

If this is the wrong place for this, apologies.


Dude, 1000 thumbs up. Thank yo so much. I love my broadlink rm pro and was waiting for someone smarter than me to integrate it.

Can this run on my Rpi?

Yes, if you check out the releases on github I made one that is compiled for raspi!

Hey rob, I'm brand new to this so please excuse my ignorance, not many of the words make sense to me around here yet. Are you saying that you're able to use your Broadlink remote with Hubitat without internet?

The software needs to be installed on a machine on your home network, but yes, using a simple http request you can send commands to broad link devices. I use the http get switch driver to send the requests.

Latest update adds more automation to allow recovery when devices dissapear (been having some fun dealing with power outages due to storms!)
