I am looking for a way to pick up infrared signals and send send a command to Homey (Pro), so it can trigger a flow.
Homey itself is to far away to use it’s IR receivers.
In more detail:
I would like to trigger my ventilation unit when my ATAG hob (cooker) is turned on. Atag calls it Hob2Hood, but I cannot use a hood from ATAG in my apartment building.
The hob sends out IR signals when it is turned on or power (induction hob) is in-/decreased. My ventilation has 3 positions so ideally the receiver would have to be able to distinguish 3 different IR signals.
When a certain signal is received from the hob, it should trigger a flow on Homey. Either by wifi, zigbee, webhook, app, etc…) which triggers the ventilation.
I have a braodlink RM3 mini, which I have learned the ATAG infrared signals, but the Broadlinks doesn’t actively listen for signals when not in learning mode…
Anyone know of a solution to this “problem”?
(Some soldering is no problem; I am not the greatest programmer though. If the code is ready-to-go; no problem.
