Great Job, want more!
This is the first remote that lets me define connections between amplifier sat receiver and tv and seamlessly switch volume control between the amp for sat streams and tv volume for smart tv/Netflix. GREAT JOB.
i have numerous suggestions for improvement based on my short use of the remote. I'll get to that other posts.
i would really like to integrate nest, hunter Douglass shades, and lutron switches into this remote. I'm sure you guys are bust with all the AV devices in the world today.
i wa very impressed that I could find controls for my old Denon amp/receiver and they work!
Thanks a lot for the good feedback about your experiences so far. We are open to all kinds of suggestions, wishes, and dreams.
Nest is coming up with one of the very next updates. How are the hunter douglass shades controlled, do you happen to know?
Lutron has been requested many times, there are some user written drivers from the community, for example a driver for the caseta 4. Official support will be coming too, but that will take a while and I can not yet give you any estimate for then this will be ready.Reply
Hunter douglass, they provide a wifi connected puck that runs a proprietary protocol between the shades and the puck. They provide a controller, called pebble, and a smart phone app. The app talks to the puck over the network. The pebble may talk directly with the shades. I'm not sure they'll want to work with other vendors; they could be closed minded about sharing. Cracking the comms between app and the puck should be easy enough, but could violate a patent. Who knows?Reply
