Benq (W1070) vs. Homey IR


I’m trying to get my Homey to power on my projector.

I tried adding IR (Add new device > Homey > Infrared) by pairing the power on-button, but it doesn’t seem to work. Homey notices the button being pushed and records it. But then no dice.

Has anyone been successful in this endeavour?


I wasn’t able to pair/copy any IR devices and use them (Mitsubishi airco, onkyo). Wayback there was a Homey case mode to make the IR opening bigger, but I didn’t try the mode. I’m going to monitor this thread.


Without casemodding this works for me perfectly. Every day when I walk into the living room the radio is already on through IR. Did you check with the camera on your phone if you see Homey transmitting IR? Also, did you try turning Homey a bit. The ring is not horizontal so that might make a difference.
