About this app

Broadlink RM controller are cheap controllers able to learn & retransmit IR and RF signal, making it possible to control several home appliances with ease.
However, it has never been possible to program and customized the experience outside of their proprietary Broadlink eControl apps.
Not any more! With this Tasker plugin, you can configure these RM Controller to work exactly the way you want it, when you want it.
Friendly APIs are provided for custom integration with whatever home automation system you are using.

☑ Compatibility
Compatible with Broadlink RM2, RM Home, RM Pro, RM3 Mini (BlackBean), SP2, SPMini, Contros, A1.
S1 & other sensors might by supported in future versions.

☑ Widget
This let you add a widget/button on your home screen to directly control Broadlink RM at a few simple clicks.

☑ Amazon Echo Integration
This app acts as a bridge between your Amazon Echo & Broadlink devices and let you control supported Broadlink devices with your voice. Simply enable this feature & tell Alexa to "discover devices".

☑ HTTP Bridge
This app acts as a HTTP Bridge and let you control your Broadlink devices via simple HTTP urls (a.k.a curl commands). API syntax are extremely user-friendly and well-documented right inside the app. It is now much easier to integrate RM device into your home automation setup.

☑ Android Wear
Trigger your devices & macros directly from your watch.

☑ 3G Bridge (version 0.8.0 and above)
You can control your Broadlink RM devices even from outside of your home WiFi network, as a Tasker plugin or a homescreen widget. You'll simply need to enable a Bridge device within your home WiFi network. Refer to screenshot and in-app FAQ for more details.

☑ Import existing data from Broadlink app
You don't have to painstakingly re-learn all the IR or RF you have done with Broadlink eControl app. This plugin takes data directly from Broadlink eControl app without you having to manual copy & paste anything. Once you're done with that, you can even uninstall Broadlink eControl app entirely.

This app can be used both as a plugin in Tasker or a standalone app.
We do not officially support any other automation app except Tasker. We will not answer your support request related to apps like MacroDroid, Locale, etc.

The RM-3 Mini is specifically on the list of supported hardware, but the one I bought in 2021 shows up as "Device not supported" in the app. Broadlink probably released a new version, but regardless: you can't assume your device will work just because it's on the list of supported devices.

Great when it works but it randomly cuts out after an extended period of time so it doesn't work when tasker tells it to do something early in the morning. A bit frustrating but I'm waiting to hear the developer's response to this issue.

not working anymore with Alexa. I used the paid version for about 3 years. Few months ago it stopped working. I think Alexa got "smarter", because the app no longer receives requests for individual devices (strangely, Alexa doesn't query the Philips hue hub either). I even rebuilt the whole network from scratch a few times with no change. Their support (for paid version) didn't care to reply to me in over 3months
