Is there a such thing as a bond remote? I want a physical device with buttons that can issue bond commands. (I have a wifi keypad I made but it’s not great, would prefer something better).
after adding this device again, I can see it in the api and there’s a setbrightness for this remote, which is awesome, exactly what I was looking for! This remote seems to be packet based / stateful, and sends a packet containing the entire state to the fan each time (which is ideal for bond). bond thinks the brightness is 100%, so I can use bond / alexa to turn the light on and off at 100%, and the original remote to turn it on and off at 30%, and not have to deal with the original remote’s terrible brightness control, which the interface is still “hold to change the brightness”. I think I can add commands to directly set brightness, so I can have one to go right to 30% and one to go right to 100%, but haven’t had a chance to try that yet. Hopefully I can get widget buttons for those
most of my remotes are hold the light button to change the brightness, so those only have “startDimmer” and “stop” actions.
can the bond cli issue any actions, or has that not been added yet?
