# Broadlink Binding

The binding integrates devices based on broadlink controllers. As the binding uses the broadlink-java-api (opens new window), theoretically all devices supported by the api can be integrated with this binding.

# Supported Things

Note: So far only the Floureon Thermostat and Rm Mini 3 devices has been tested! The other things are "best guess" implementations.

Things Description Thing Type
Floureon Thermostat broadlink based Thermostat sold with the branding Floureon floureonthermostat
Hysen Thermostat broadlink based Thermostat sold with the branding Hysen hysenthermostat
Rm Mini broadlink based Universal Controller sold with the branding Rm Mini rmuniversalremote

# Discovery

Broadlink devices are discovered on the network by sending a specific broadcast message. Authentication is automatically sent after creating the thing.

# Thing Configuration

Two parameter are required for creating things:

  • host: The hostname or IP address of the device.
  • macAddress : The network MAC of the device.

The autodiscovery process finds both parts automatically.
