Title: Broadlink RM and HA-Bridge
Post by: tuicemen on March 09, 2018, 09:26:58 am
bwssystems.com just released a version of HA-Bridge which supports the Broadlink IR devices.
It will also control RF compatible devices
This version doesn't have the ability to learn the IR or RF codes but if you have these already you simply copy them into HA-Bridge and create the Broadlink controllable device. ;)

Do you know how to configure it ?

I'd like to try but it is not obvious.

First off it will not learn the IR or RF codes it only sends them so you have to find the codes using another program.
To configure:
Once HA-Bridge is running go to bridge control and scroll down to Broadlink support and check the box beside it which says false (checking it will turn it to true)
Next scroll back to the top and click save.
This will restart the bridge in the device screen tab over to the Bridge Control tab again this will then display another tab for Broad links.
Clicking on it will allow you to enter the on/off codes and will display the broadlink device it found.
When you click add to the right it will throw you into the device setup screen so you can name the device.
and edit anything else then click add new device.
