Remotes


Keeps track which remotes are in your environment, their state and allows you to control them.

  • Maintains a state per remote and a combined state all_remotes.
  • Registers services remote/turn_on, remote/turn_off, remote/toggle, remote/sync, and remote/send_command to control remotes.

Go to the Developer Tools, then to Call Service in the frontend, and choose remote/turn_on, remote/turn_off, or remote/toggle from the list of available services (Available services: on the left). Enter something like the sample below into the Service Data field and hit Call Service.
