    Its great to have these as a kit, my question is does the kit come with instructions. I tried a Black bean recently and could not get it to control some of my devices.

      Thanks for the question , Marks answer is best. The device is just for IR, so for RM you need to use the RM Pro.
      The other issue I would mention is that the specs indicate it can receive verbal instructions in Chinese. We have not tried this and I cant recall seeing any place where you can set verbal commands.
      HOWEVER: We have had some success using Google Home to accept instructions to control devices connected through the RM3 Mini (Black Bean) device.

      ALSO neglected to mention, the QNAP NAS with smikbox Home Automation Kits include Home Assist applications can also be used control devices connected to the RM Pro and 3 Mini (Black Bean).

      This makes a really nice solution when running from within your NAS, which is managing networking, backup, home entertainment etc.

      Its a smik solution (sorry pun intended) … Worth a look!

    Good question, there is a few parts to the answer.
    I have found the Black Bean really helpful, first it is only for controlling IR devices, so if your trying to pair with RF it would not of worked (but I assume you knew that already)
    Second since it is IR there are limitations to the distance the device can be from the Blackbean and it’s best to be in line of sight if possible. IR can bounce round corners but during setup, it gives you more confidence if you have the devices close when pairing so it works as expected.
    Third when setting up remote dont press the buttons on the remote too many times. First time I did it I pressed the volume up twice, and so whenever I used the BlackBean to change volume it went up drmatically (scared the heck outa the neighbours). Lastly it appears to be easier to set up when you do that set up close to your wifi router, so it has a good signla. You can move it away when the set up is done, but all the devices I set up when beside the router worked flawlessly, and the others I found I had to do a again. (its again linked to that pressing the button twice issue I mentioned above because you think it did not record the first time).
    Hope this helps.

    This is a great kit, was very easy to setup and I appreciate the help from Mark at Smikbox getting through my strange problem with outdated iOS stopoing my Robotic vacuum cleaners commands from getting through.

    I saw a post somewhere that explained you are working with Google Home and Home Assistant (was it running as a Virtual Machine on the QNAP NAS?).

    Are you intending to release these configuration files.

    I had a look at home assistant running in my QNAP NAS, and I can see it has the facility to control Broadlink RM2 etc. But not sure how to use it.

    Will smikbox be adding this to their NAS offering so I can download and instal ? .. Is that your intentions?

      Hi Ken, yes your assumption is correct. We are researching the Broadlink interface with Home Assistant and Google Home. Currently we have Tasker for Android phones using Autovoice to take verbal commands and pass these to the Broadlink controllers. This is a really good start, but if your phones is flat… need I say more..

      Google home and Alexia is the permanent microphone in all rooms (if you have the budget to buy enough of them). So we have the basic mechanics working for Google (alexia will follow soon after), now we are trying to merge so the configs we give to Smikbox community work exactly the ssme regardless of if the voice instruction comes from mobile, Google Home, Alexia or a household Command/Control strip (more on these self adhesive multi-function strips later).

      Once we get this working Voice controlled assistants in the home become much more useful and don’t require you to think about the technology in order to get something done!

    I found that one of the RF controls was not recognised by the IR/RF kit, then after speaking to smikbox (chat) i realised that if I convert a few light switches to the bradlink, I get another light controlled by my home automation, and as a bonus the RF controlling the garage door (which is a long way away) now works because these devices retransmit each others signal so the wireless reach is greater than home 2.4G WiFi network.. awesome !
