[APP][Pro] Broadlink App

I will have a look later today or this week.
Are you familiar with manual uploading an app to homey (actually not so difficult)?

Then I could upload the modified code to github and you could try yourself. (Without compromising the ‘original’ app)

But if you could google somewhere if the RF signal also needs the modified code, would be usefull.

Thanks a lot! No experience with uploading an app but I will probably manage that :wink: Don’t know what you mean with the “modified code” though, sorry.

No worries I will check.

Could you give me your device type?
I think you should see this when adding.
For example: 0x610e (is a RM4)

I have the LIGHTCALM ZWART (Plafondventilator 40W DC achteruit met licht) with a white IKOHS remote with green prints on it. I bypassed the crappy LED and connected it directly to my wall dimmer switch in combination with some dimmable IKEA lamps. I just needed a programmable remote for the 433Mhz signal to control the speed. Works fine! Except no solution (yet) to connect it with Homey.

Hi Pieter, reinstalling the device made me realise you have modified the drivers for the RM4 mini and not the RM4 pro (which I have). So it is probably not going the work if your drivers are based on the RM3 mini, am I right? Could not find any device type, except for the PID and DID in the Broadlink app. Sorry, I am a Noob :frowning:

Should be all the same. RM4 Pro should work

Is it recognized as RM4? Or unknown (then the model id should be displayed)

That would be great! The RM4 is added as “unknown (x:x:x:x:x)” under devices. The x part is the MAC ID (checked it with the Broadlink app and router info)

Well good to know it should work. It seems you have the same remote and reciever I have on the IKOHS.
Looks like this?.
I will try with a RM3 Pro from a friend to see if I can copy and send a good the Signal.

Just tested the RM3 Pro+ and indeed it works with my IKOHS FAN.
Added the RM3 in Homey and see if I can learn the RF commands via Homey too.

Hi all,
Just a question about which app to install for a RM3 mini.
In the (official) Homey app store I see a Broadlink app version 2.0.5
In the Community app store I see a Broadlink app version 1.0.0
There is also a Broadlink Red app version 1.0.2 in the Community app store.

The all should support the RM3 mini.
I am lost now… Which app to install best and what are the differences or (dis)advantages of these apps?

v 2.0.5 is the official app

in the community App Store= 1.0.2 (1.0.0 should be deleted by the mod)
this is the ‘red’ Broadlink app, which works with the new RM3 and RM4 devices

ok tried to modify the app a bit to support the RM4 pro, but honestly I am a noob, and for the moment no big succes.

The fact I also don’t have such a devices doesn’t/t make it easier…

And u made a request for this alr?

I understand… Let me know if I can test something for you!

RM3 mini have a few variants they call it “Black” and “Red”. Official Homey app store only support “Black” hardware version. Hence @Pieterv123 out of good will created Broadlinkred initially for support RM3 mini red and further added RM4 mini.

Ah, thx!
I got the wrong one then. Took the latest version number. But got a black colour.
Thx!

Mind u: even the red ones are black!

Hmmm, now I am confused (again :sweat_smile:).
I saw some red ones on Google.

How do I distinguish which one I have then?

If u cannot add it to the e-control app then u have the red bean. If u can add it it’s the black version. In Homey apps u get an error with something like “strange device found, 5f36” for the red bean version.

I could add it to both the BroadlinkRed app as to the official app from the Homey Store.

The e-control (Android) app complain it it designed for an older Android version. It hasn’t been updated since 2018 too, according to the Android Appstore.
Already had the BroadLink Android app which is functioning fine.

Any other way to distinguish the two?
