Hello out there!
Have had a Homey for about a month. Most things work very well and I was going to start on the IR capability, since I have a lot of IR devices that I need to integrate in the system. This was actually one of the main reasons I bought Homey in the first place - to be able to integrate “everything” in one control package.
Direct failure and I have searched this community and the net for info on the IR part. Seems as many more have experienced difficulties.
The learn code process seems to work fine:
With just three-four clicks on the remote, Homey accepts a sent code. Which obviously must mean that the hardware reception works. And - probably - that the code is recognised and accepted somehow.
Now comes “test the signal”. And nothing happens.
Learning from the posts here I’ve done all the suggested things:
- tried several different ir remotes, new and old
- turned off the ring
- pulled the plug (for hours)
- inspected eventual ir being sent by using my phone (and yes, it sees the ir from the remote)
with the result that Homey sends no ir (that can be seen with the phone).
Could it actually be a hardware failure - anyone experienced that?
Would be very grateful for an update from users who have battled (and preferably won!) this problem!
Firmware is 1.5.13
