Learning RF commands with RM Pro Plus
Once the RM-Pro-plus device is installed in Homey, it can learn RF commands.
Note that the RF must operate on 433 MHz, as this is the only band the RM-Pro-plus can understand.
Check your RF remote/device if this is the case.
Homey will talk you through the learing process, so be somewhere close to it.
As learing can be rather tricky, it is highly advisable to have the RF-device you want to control
Learning is done as follows:
make sure the volume of the speaker in Homey is set to a clearly audible level.
=> open the app
-> Volume (set to a level)
Open the device page
=> open the app
-> RM Pro Plus (or the name you gave it)
Get hold of your RF-remote
Press the ‘Learn RF button’
Homey will tell you to continuously press the button on your remote.
So, press the button, and keep it pressed.
Homey will then tell you to press the button repeatedly.
So, press the button, release it, press it, release it (but not too fast).
As it is important that the RM-Pro-plus understands the button presses,
it is best you verify you are pressing the button at the correct speed.
You can do this as follows:
- switch on the device you want to control with your RF-remote
- press the button on the RF-remote, and observe your device responding to it.
- release the button.
- keep on repeating the press/release steps.
- your device should respond to each button press.
Homey will tell you to stop pressing the button.
The RM-Pro-plus now has learned the command.
You can now repeat the learning process for another button, or you can give
the command just learned a meaningfull name
Give the command a meaningfull name
-> Settings (the icon top-right on your screen)
-> Advanced Settings
a. Rename the command (tap on the name, edit it, save it)
b. Remove the command (tap on the name, clear the name, save it)
Using learned commands
Both InfraRed and RF commands can now be used in an identical way.
All commands the RM-Pro-plus has learned, are available only in flows.
When creating a flow, you can use the command (or any command) as a trigger
to start the flow.
In the ‘then’ part, you can select your RM-Pro-plus device, and select the
command from the list of available commands.
If you like to use a button to send a command, you can create a Virtual Device,
which will trigger a flow (as described above).
