IR Transmitter

Hi.

Now i control most of the light and Sonos with OpenHAB.

Now I want to control my TV. My Samsung is to new for the binding and my Panasonic is to old.

So now I need an IR Transmitter that works with OpenHAB.

Can someone give me recommendations of a working IR transmitter.

Yes, Logitech Harmony Hub will do it perfectly - there’s a binding for it.

By the way: I don’t step behind the sonos config in openhab - would you mind send me your configs for sonos?

Oh great… I was looking for an ir transmitter too… What openhab version is the binding available for?

I use a vanilla 1.7.1 installation augmented with harmony 1.8.0 add-on (https://openhab.ci.cloudbees.com/job/openHAB/)

  • org.openhab.io.harmonyhub-1.8.0-SNAPSHOT.jar
  • org.openhab.binding.harmonyhub-1.8.0-SNAPSHOT.jar
  • org.openhab.action.harmonyhub-1.8.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

Works very well together with Logitech Harmony® Smart Control O-R0004

kind regards,
Patrik
