  • Infrared Device Status

    Hello,

    Is there any way to set and track the status of an infrared device ?

    At this moment all functions ( hs.DeviceStatus, hs.DeviceValue, hs.DeviceString ) return unknown or empty values

    and also I am not able to set any of them.


    Best regards,
    Clement

    IR is not considered a device. If you control equipment with IR then you will want to create devices for this equipment and keep track of what state the equipment is in based upon either your IR control actions or based upon measuring the equipment state via some other mechanism.

    Sometimes tracking IR-controlled equipment is difficult. For example, keeping track of actual volume level when volume+_ voume- IR is used to control it as well as someone turning the voume knob.

      Many thanks for the quick replay.
      I think I see it ....

      In this case the only reason to create a so called "Infrared Device" in the "Status" screen of HS is to have the Control Panel for that device in the browser and being able to manually send IR signals.

      Am I right?
