So I opened the port on my router that was shown on RM Bridge. I opened the port to the static IP of my Android bridge. Is this correct? So now the RM Bridge app goes to a green circle but when I go to load devices....There is a very quick swirl on the top left and then nothing. What are the next steps?
Just follow the directions. The only thing missing from them is setting up a "Location", which you would use instead of a hub. I mentioned how to create a Location few posts above. If you are not going to get a physical hub, then I would try RM Tasker first. This will save you from having to deal with dynamic DNS.
The Alexa Bridge is working fine. Once you have created your codes, you enable the alexa bridge, create a 'device' and define what virtual button press you want to action when the 'device' is triggered (you define what button you want to send when you command it to on/off). Once you have your devices all set, you do a discover devices on your echo, and your device appears on your alexa app. (they appear as wemo devices as far as alexa is concerned). You can command them on or off subsequently, and the RM2 will dutifully turn on or off any infrared or rf device you have configured.
Several people have reported this issue lately and resolved it by updating the broadlink firmware. I'm not certain but it may be only a version of firmware that ends in 24.
Dear CustomerYou can forget that message. Firmware update is not a sign of improving or more function. We don't suggest customer do the firmware update usually.
I'm getting the impression the Alexia can only handle on/off ? I'm looking for things like TV Volume /Up/Down, Mute TV, etc ?? Am I expecting too much ?
