I just bought my broadlink and connected it to homey, recorded “on/off” button and made a virtual on and off switch. Also added it trough google so i can use speech command.
But, the problem comes since there is so many ways that i can turn my TV on and OFF that my virtual button is never in sync.
If someone uses the normal TV controller, homey cant really know that the TV was turn on or off.
If someone uses google to turn it on, its the same deal.
How can i make my homey to get an update the status of the TV.
I guess this is only possible if i combine it with a power plug and monitor the power usage, since a IR is just a command you send out no matter what the status of the device is.
