New here and recently migrated over from a 100% Xiaomi hub and devices to broaden range of supported devices.
My current project is to automate a projector lift, soundbar and Sky Q minibox. Basically, when I press the power button on the Sky Q remote, i’d love the projector lift to drop, then projector turn on. and vice versa when turned off.
The way I was thinking of doing this is via the IR and RF controls.
Projector lift - RF remote control (433Mhz I guess!)
Projector - IR
Sky Q - It will be in a cupboard and understand they are bluetooth remote controls
Given that the Sky Q is bluetooth, I was thinking I could use a smartthing plug socket and monitor for power usage to determine if the box is on or off.
Having tested the power consumption in on and off states, it seems to consume 7w in standby and 8-9w when on.
My concern is here that its a little too close and could see the lift and projector being triggered at the slightest surge.
I was thinking of something like Broadlink RM Pro+ to deal with sending IR command to power the projector on and off and the RF for the projector lift.
Not sure Broadlink RM Pro+ is easily controllable by smartthings.
Happy to head down the Audrano route if required.
Anyone done similar? Any suggestions?
