How do  I control my Bedroom ?

The second hub I use is the Broadlink RM Pro .

 

I have it in my bedroom and can control my profiling bed, fan heater, TV and light switches.


It works by learning the infrared signals from a remote control and linking them to a voice command. You can link anything that is controlled by an infrared remote or an RF signal, opening up a wide range of possibilities.

Below is a great tutorial from the excellent Paul Hibbert showing how to set it all up.

 

 

 

 

 

One of the first pieces of Assistive Technology I had installed at my house was the Possum Primo remote.

This was sourced by my OT and installed by a specialist  company.

 

 I thought this device looks dated and clunky but my initial thoughts were quickly displaced when I used what turned out to be a well thought out and reliable piece of kit !

 

The Primo+ can control lighting, a fan, a radio, open and close a door, link into a video intercom to control who enters a property, open curtains or blinds, operate a TV or DVD player and adjust an automated bed or chair.

 

It was setup by a specialist who programmed the different menus and inputted the IR Codes. They are accessed by a buddy button attached to my bed and the menu is accessed with a scanning function.

 

This is how I can use the Broadlink RM Pro to adjust my bed with Amazon Alexa.

The bed was initially set up to be controlled via the Possum Primo (it uses Infa-Red signals to a receiver unit) .

I was then able to use the Broadlink RM Pro to learn these IR codes and link them to the voice commands.
