Description

* All Scripts are written using python 2.7

econtrol-db-dump.py

This script will "parse" the broadlink e-Control Android application rmt.db database and dump the IR / RF codes (in HEX format) for selected accessories into a text file which can be later used with broadlink-python to send the codes to the RM PRO hub.

You need to get the "rmt.db" file from your android device or emulator (ARM),

ROOT ACCESS REQUIRED

the file is located in "/data/data/com.broadlink.rmt/databases/rmt.db" and put it in the same folder as this script.

 ~# adb pull /data/data/com.broadlink.rmt/databases/rmt.db 

getBroadlinkSharedData.py

This script will "parse" the broadlink e-Control Android application "SharedData" json files and dump the IR / RF codes (in HEX format) for selected accessories into a text file which can be later used with broadlink-python to send the codes to the RM PRO hub

NO ROOT ACCESS REQUIRED

Just connect your Android device to your computer and browse the SD card / External Storage folder "/broadlink/newremote/SharedData/" You need to get the following files:

jsonSubIr

jsonButton

jsonIrCode

and put them in the same folder as this script.

*** If you can't find the following files on your phone storage You may need to open the e-control app and on the left side menu choose "Share" and then "Share to other phones in WLAN" it should generate the files. ***

run: ~# python getBroadlinkSharedData.py

or duplicate code by number

~# python getBroadlinkSharedData.py 5

Requirements

simplejson

~# pip install simplejson

sendCode.py

This is a script you can use to test that your codes are working, It will send the command to the RM Pro You will need the python-broadlink library for the script to work.

~# git clone https://github.com/mjg59/python-broadlink.git
~# sudo python setup.py install

You will also need to edit the script line 6 with your RM Pro IP Address and MAC Address and line 17 with the code in hex format (Which can be produced by "econtrol-db-dump.py" and "getBroadlinkSharedData.py").

FOR TC2 RF SWITCHES

In case you get the following error: Input strings must be a multiple of 16 in length when sending the TC2 codes you dumped from the DB you will have to do the following:

Try sending the code one time using the "sendCode.py" script:

e.g: e90a4200df0909161609160909160916091609160916160909160916091609160916091609161609091609160916160916090916091609160916091616091609160909160916

If it is not working and you get the Input strings must be a multiple of 16 in length error again, try to duplicate it twice:

e.g: e90a4200df0909161609160909160916091609160916160909160916091609160916091609161609091609160916160916090916091609160916091616091609160909160916e90a4200df0909161609160909160916091609160916160909160916091609160916091609161609091609160916160916090916091609160916091616091609160909160916

If not working keep going 3,4,5,6 time until it works with the script.

broadlink_to_home_assistant_encoder.py

This script will output the codes in a format that will work with home assistant

~# broadlink_to_home_assistant_encoder.py "packet"

~# broadlink_to_home_assistant_encoder.py e90a4200df0909161609160909160916091609160916160909160916091609160916091609161609091609160916160916090916091609160916091616091609160909160916e90a4200df0909161609160909160916091609160916160909160916091609160916091609161609091609160916160916090916091609160916091616091609160909160916
