I changed all my bulbs/switches/poweroutlets/… to zigbee devices, connected to zigbee2mqtt and controlled by homeassistant.
What I miss now are some “universal” remotes where I can control a lot of devices.
Right now, I ordered some electronic parts for sending/receiving RF and IR in the hope I just can use a cheap TV-remote and assign a number to one of my devices to toggle on/off and hopefully to use volume control to dim the device. (I will try to use OpenMqttGateway to connect things together)
Now I’m looking for some affordable IR/RF remotes
- numeric pad
- +/- buttons
- stylish design
Has anybody some experience with such devices?
