Notes #

Pairing #

Press the button on the device 4 times (until the red light turns on).

Legacy integration #

By default (for backwards compatibility purposes) the legacy integration is enabled. For new users it is recommended to disable this as it has several problems. To disable the legac integration add the following to your configuration.yaml:

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    legacy: false

The information below only applies to the legacy integration.

Recommendation #

This device sends multiple messages in short time period with the same payload. It’s worth setting debounce option with debounce_ignore: - action to throttle them without losing unique action payloads.

E.g. (devices.yaml)

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    debounce: 0.5
    debounce_ignore:
    - action

To find optimal “smoothness” play with debounce time or if you need all unique rotation steps consider adding brightness to debounce_ignore option

'0xabc457fffe679xyz':
    friendly_name: my_remote
    debounce: 0.1
    debounce_ignore:
    - action
    - brightness

OTA updates #

This device supports OTA updates, for more information see OTA updates.

Manual Home Assistant configuration #
