Title: Cheap Wifi + RF + IR Controller (Broadlink-RM2-Pro)
Post by: lucianopacheco on October 10, 2014, 09:17:29 am
Just found this product.. It?s supposed to control all IR and RF devices for a fraction of the price of other sollutions.

Infrared Frequency - 38K
Wireless Type - Wi-Fi 24GHZ b / g /n
RF - 433 / 315MHZ

The thing is, it is controlled by an IOS / Android App.

Anybody think it?s possible to integrate this with the Vera (or at least eventghost?)

Im also interested in buying one, specially because it can handle IR and RF simultaneously, being very cheap.

Any developer would like to take the challenge?  ;D

I think most people are waiting to see if somebody will be able to make a plugin for it to work with the Vera.
While the product is great, the best I could do was to create some scenes and automate it with tasker (Autoinput plugin). Far from ideal.

Peter,
Can you recomend the model of the eletric curtains that you bought from them?

Thanks.

Hi,

I ordered my four electric curtain from the same seller (The Friend Group) in the previous link.

You just need to send your exact order (track width, center or side opening, celling or wall bracket) by message to the seller. He will make a package deal for you and combine shipping also.

The price is around 100$ (us) for a 5meters track, motor, bracket, etc.

For the motor, ask for a Dooya DT52S. The S at the end is important, this is a 4 wires motor so you can wire it to a Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 for example and be able to control it from Vera.

For my 4 condo windows without the curtains itself,(I have very large windows, floor to celling windows 10 to 14 feets width) the cost was :

Electric curtains :
110$(each) * 4 + shipping (158$)

Fibaro Roller Shutter 2 :
55$ (each) * 4 + shipping (30$)

Is it possible to add discrete code to the library? Those IR commands are not transmitted with the TV-remote.

This is useful when to select specific input, instead of toggling "x" times in the menu and derail every time the current selection is unexpected.

I've looked in the app, but it doesn't do much without the IR-blaster it self.

Hello everyone :D

Broadlink-RM2 user here too, I was playing with the iOS SDK that comes along and got stuck at the stage where RM2 sends out the code.

I was able to set the RM2 to learning environment
than I gave it a IR remote learning
after which when I send out it is in the following format:

26004e01a4470c3c0b190b180a190a3c0b180c190a180c170b3c0d170a3c0b3c0b190a3d0a3b0b3c0b3d0a3b0c190a180c3a0c180b180c190a190a190a190b3c0b3c0b3b0b3b0c3b0b190b3b0b3c0b180d160b190b180b1a0a180b180b180c180d160b180c180b3c0c3a0c3b0b3c0b180b190b170c180d0003c5a6460b3c0b180b180b180c3b0d160c190a180d170b3b0c170c3b0b3c0b180b3c0b3b0c3c0a3c0b3b0c190b170b3c0b180c170d170b180b190b180b180d170c170c170c3b0c3c0a190a180b3d0b170c3b0b3b0d3a0b1a0a180b180d3b0a3c0b180c180b170c180d160c180b180c170d160c180d160c170c180b180c180b180b180c180c180a180d180a190c160c180c170b180c180b180b190b180b180b3c0c170b190b3b0c3b0b190a180c180b180b1a0a190a180b190c170b3b0c180b190c160c190b3a0c180c170b190b180d170b2f08040b190b000d0500000000000000000000

While the product is great, the best I could do was to create some scenes and automate it with tasker (Autoinput plugin). Far from ideal.

i use the same setting: tasker, automate it and the crappy official app, the problem is that the app (broadlink eRemote) sometimes dosn't respond and you have to kill to continue.
maybe a solution is to use another device in home (tablet) with the app always open and remotely control the app via tasker or ifttt.

when i try to connect remotely to the device (rmpro) via the official app seems that the two device (my phone and rmpro) need to preventively connect itself and then allow the command from the phone... i think this is the main reason for app crash since it's not possible to set a static ip address to the device

anyone with a solution or hint?

Hello everybody!
Unfortunately I came to a conclusion that the interaction with Vera or Tasker will be impossible. After doing some tests monitoring connections and ports of my home network, I realized that the command sent by Broadlink application does not go directly to the RM-PRO. The application sends the command to a Broadlink website or another web interface, which checks the ID of connected devices and retransmits to the registered RM-PRO.

There is no direct connection via any TCP / UDP port, so we have to beg for Broadlink develop a plugin for Tasker / Vera.

I am trying to contact the developers 6 months ago and so far had no response.

There is an unfortunate trend in recent home-control devices. Many of them require you to access them through some external web site. There is presumably some advantage for the manufacturers in this approach - they could even start charging for the service...

Personally I like to own the link to my home-automation and also have it still work if the Internet connection is down. This is why I was happy to pay for the Kira IR transceiver module. It is mine and I control everything that goes in or out of it. ;)

Having said that, people do write plugins to control devices via external web access. A published API makes this quite easy. Otherwise it can be very difficult to determine the protocol and penetrate any security mechanism.

I got the SDK from Broadlink 1 year ago and it was published in this forum by another member. Could it be enough for the plugin or we will do need the API? I could try getting an API as well...

Isn't the Broadlink RM PRO is built with "off the shelf" components from Broadcom? Here  (http://www.ewisetech.com/pages/product/highlight.aspx?s=1838&dt=6822)is a link to a dismanteling.

Also there are (updated) broadlink sdk repositories on Github (https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=broadlink+sdk&type=Repositories&ref=searchresults).

Doing integration against it should be pretty straight forward.. it's based on JSON queries.

Do the updated SDK still requiere to send commands to the broadlink servers and not to the device itself? I assume so, until a new fiirmware changes this.

To the Broadlink servers? In the Android SDK (even the old one) you connect directly to your device and continue sending JSON queries.

Making the software send commands when you are not connected on the same net, now that is a bit more tricky.

You'll need chinese QQ (some kind of Facebook-ish thing  in chinese only) to forward the commands.

Hello!

I got an RM Pro in Argentina couple days ago and I was able to control it from my computer following your steps! Thank you so much to you and the developers behind it.
The difference is that I don't have any Home Automation system but being a programmer myself I was able to run the codes from a simple C# program.
Also, I do not own an Android phone so in order to run the bridge I set up an Android virtual machine on VirtualBox. If you get the network settings right, then you can make it so it talks to the RM Pro.


Thanks!
Kevin

I saw your video and it looks great.
If you need some sort of beta tester I am in.

I have nexus 5 and Rm pro

Really love that registration process...

Looks very interesting and I was wondering if I can connect an RF Weather Station Transmitter into my RM PRO and use your tasker to automate the control of my AC?

If I buy this kind of cheap RF433 Weather station transmitter (http://www.aliexpress.com/item/wireless-temperature-sensor-transmitter-Remote-sensor-for-RF-wireless-weather-station-thermometer-hygrometer/32335045334.html?spm=2114.01020208.3.20.undy3p) (or a few), is the RM Pro able to receive the readings and make adjustments according to your tasker scripts?

I would like to achieve a bit more complex logics taking into count the data from the indoor RF Transmitter (or a few) combined with info from the local professional weather station via internet. Then make a script with the tasker that takes into count the changes in the outdoor temperature to take action in order to minimize the impact on whatever requested indoor temp.

If above is possible, then for cooling this would work easy b/c the RM PRO can do IR.
For my central heating thermostat I would need to build a smart socket workaround that would cheat the temp sensor to reduce heating when controlled by warming the temp sensor.

I also have a question... If I buy a RM2-Pro, can I use that to control my Marantz SR-6005 receiver from VERA (OR any other App) ?

Anyone know if it can interact with the Harmony Hub (Ultimate) somehow?

I have a projector lift and curtains running on RF signal but all the rest of my equipment for the home cinema setup in Harmony Ultimate. What I would like would be to add buttons to the Harmony Ultimate that can trigger the RF signal from the Broadlink RM2 Pro.

This would obviously have to be an API solution as the RM2 would have to receive the API call over WiFi. I know the Harmony Hub has an API but it is unfortunately not public so I have no clue if it can be done...

Look for RM pro bridge an it will guide you on how to setup and use the bridge. It works with Vera by setting up a scene for each event. Good luck

Set up a scene and plug your code in the the Lua code section on the scene creator.  Code should include the following
os.execute('curl -g  "http://your bridge ip:7474/?cmd=%7B%22api_id%22:1004,%22command%22:%22send_code%22,%22mac%22:%22b4:43:0d:9b:b0:d5%22,%22data%22:%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%22%7D"')

I could use some help with the Lua code for Vera using the RM Bridge.  I have been able to get the RM Bridge set up and have learned codes.  I have all the RM Bridge commands documented (Short URL, Command URL, and Plain Command).  I'm lost on how to write the Lua code to create a scene in Vera.  Can some give me a sample code that I could use?  thanks for the help.

Here are the commands I have from RM bridge

Short URL

Plain Command

Create a scene and use the code in my note above replacing it with your command.

Hi

Looking to purchase a Broadlink RM PRO but is the Android RM-Bridge app still the only way to get Vera talking to it ?

Is there no way for Vera to directly send http JSON commands to the RM Pro device without the need for an Android bridge device ?

Thanks.

Hi

I think so, however once setup the Vera can control the broadlink very easy.  The creator was vert bright I find it can control anything.

Good luck.

Hi

So are you using the RM-Bridge app or the other one called RM Tasker plugin app?

Thanks

HI

I use the RM bridge, set up on an old phone (or Android TV Box).  Once setup you can put that phone anywhere as long as it is still connected to the same network.  Then Vera uses the bridge to communicate with all of your devices, actually i am looking for away to boost this to all over the house or one per floor.  It currently controls my heatpump, fireplace, blinds, and etc.

Not sure if this helps.

Good luck.
