Is this possible?
I would like to turn on my Hue light when I press the pause or stop button on my remote while I watch a movie.
Is this possible?
I don't think this is possible at the moment with NEEO alone. But if you own a home automation system this is an easy task. I personally use IP-Symcon for this scenario. Because the NEEO remote sends via forward actions every single command to an external system of choice you can then react with the external system to the Play and Stop Trigger and switch every light system that can be controlled by the external system. This can be Hue or any other system like KNX, LNC, Homematic, Z-Wave, EnOcean etc.Reply
Because it makes no sense to always turn on the light, this must depend on conditions. But that is currently not configurable with NEEO alone.
In an external tool, this is possible. You can react to the messages send by NEEO. Here the time of day would be considered because you do not want to switch on the light during the day.
So in my case, there are two mini scripts responsible for turn on the light and turn off the light.
the conditions look like this
So you are reacting in case something is changing. Then you compare if the values from NEEO match your pattern with =.
Furthermore, it should be checked whether it is day or night so that the light is only switched on if necessary.
If you press then your play button light is in the night turned off, if you press the pause button light is turned on again.Reply
Hi, Nils Jacob. Thank you very much for your request. I guess you are talking about hard buttons on the NEEO Remote? At the moment you can add all these shortcuts to your Touchscreen. In that way, you can turn on/off your Hue lights, while you are watching TV. Personally, I like this way very much, as all hard buttons on my Remote are used for the intended functions Play, Pause,...
Anyway, we understand that there is a need for more customization for the hard buttons. There is already a very high requested voting for this over here. I'm sure this feature will come in future firmware releases. Stay tuned!Reply
No I'm not talking about the hard buttons, I would just like to have the possibility when I press pause on my OPPO or Apple TV to turn on the light in the evening without messing with the remote. Fonzo I just have my living room and want to control all AV stuff with my remote nothing else but so far Control4 is the only solution that does what i want without messing with two or more systems.Reply
