For this platform to work, we need a .json file containing all the necessary IR commands.
Find your device's brand code here and add the number in the
device_code field. The compoenent will download it to the correct folder. If your device is not working, you will need to learn your own codes and place the .json file in
smartir/codes/media_player/ subfolders. Please note that the
device_code field only accepts positive numbers. The .json extension is not required.
name (Optional): The name of the device
unique_id (Optional): An ID that uniquely identifies this device. If two devices have the same unique ID, Home Assistant will raise an exception.
device_code (Required): ...... (Accepts only positive numbers)
controller_send_service (Required): The service that will be used to send the commands. Only
broadlink_send_packet (Broadlink controller) and
mqtt.publish is currently supported.
controller_command_topic (Optional): MQTT topic on which to send commands when controller_send_service is mqtt.publish
power_sensor (Optional): entity_id for a sensor that monitors whether your device is actually On or Off. This may be a power monitor sensor. (Accepts only on/off states)
Example (using broadlink controller):
smartir: switch: - platform: broadlink host: 192.168.10.10 mac: '00:00:00:00:00:00' media_player: - platform: smartir name: Living room TV unique_id: living_room_tv device_code: 1000 controller_send_service: switch.broadlink_send_packet_192_168_10_10 power_sensor: binary_sensor.tv_power
Make sure the broadlink switch is already installed. Go to the Home Assistant UI/dev service, find the broadlink send_packet service and copy the name of it.
Add the name of the send_packet service to the
Example (using mqtt controller):
smartir: media_player: - platform: smartir name: Living room TV unique_id: living_room_tv device_code: 2000 controller_send_service: mqtt.publish controller_command_topic: home-assistant/living-room-tv/command power_sensor: binary_sensor.tv_power
