Broadlink RM PRO and smartthings for RF roller shutter


(Andres Felizola) #1

Does anyone knows if I can integrate Broadlink RM Pro to Samsung Smarthings to control a 433Mhz RF roller shutter?

Yes i just bought and hooked up on my ecosystem a Broadlink Pro+ to control my Christmas RF plugs that i bought at Costco 4 for $15.

You have to use an Android device ( i use a Android TV box that is always on) and Tasker RM Plugin (stand alone Tasker not necessary) that goes in the Android device (do not use RM Bridge cause it only works with older devices or Broadlink Minis).

Use the guide here https://beckyricha.github.io/Broadlink-RM-SmartThings-Alexa.html after you read on that page click at the end here https://beckyricha.github.io/Broadlink-RM-SmartThings-Alexa/RM%20Tasker%20LAN%20ReadMe.html

What i did on my end for a smoother integration

  • Make sure that before you begin the ST integration, to assign the Broadlink device a static ip address on your router (also for the Android device). You want that not only because Tasker RM Plugin needs to remember one address that does not change in a network reset but also if you want to use both native apps made for Broadlink

The new IHC app for controlling Broadlink works with Alexa and Google but you do not want that one.
The older e-Control app is the one that Tasker RM Plugin needs and uses to transfer the codes and also with a click of a check box have Alexa and Google control Broadlink much smoother than their native cloud integration though IHC app .

Oh and make sure to save all on and off devices as lamps in the e-Control app
Let me know if you need more detailed information as i ran into a few hiccups at the beginning although it may sound complicated it isn’t
