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 will supported in future version via HTTP Bridge or web console only, not as a State Trigger Tasker plugin.


☑ 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.


☑ Web Console [Beta]
Manage your devices & code via the built-in web interface powered by HTTP Bridge.
If you want to access it remotely, simply turn on port-forwarding on your router and use Basic Authentication to protect your access.


☑ 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.


☑ Upcoming feature
Direct integration with Amazon Echo
