[PYTHON]How-to integrate (cheap)Broadlink RM3 MINI IR blaster with Pimatic
Just adding a note that there are multiple new projects based on this one. One is an API library that has advanced to allow more devices and autodetection. Then there is an http-rest project which allows you to use simple http commands control everything. My fork of this adds a macro programming language. I use ifttt’s webhook module so that I can have Google Assistant phrases execute macros of commands, check variables, etc.
