I am confused regarding what some reviewers have stated about being difficult or impossible to set up. it's done. Took less time to set up than it did to plug in! Found and configured my Gree mini-split. Works fantastically! One tiny thing, the a/c switched to Celsius on the display. But, when I tell Alexa a temp in Fahrenheit it works and she responds back in Fahrenheit so all is well...no stars off. Can certainly deal with that minor issue. Works so well another is on the way for the upstairs unit.
Took a little while to find my devices remote but works great.
This product exceeded my expectations. It was super easy to set up and get on the network. The Broadlink app is powerful and easy to create scenes and add devices. The RF range is outstanding. I actually put mine between the soundbar and the TV. So the device is behind the soundbar and the IR receiver is on the front and it has no issues controlling it. Definitely not in clear site as the Broaklink is lower than the top of the soundbar. Alexa integration was seamless as well. A+, I got the one with the temp and humidity sensor, don't really need it, so I could have saved $8 bucks.
Is a great pice, help a lot and very versatile in functions
While my Sony Android TV would work with Alexa, the home theater receiver would not. I used an older Harmony remote to basically turn on both the TV and the receiver. This device, with the creation of scenes, allows me to send the command, "Alexa, Living Room on" and my receiver and TV turn on. "Alexa, Living Room off" turns off both devices. It works as expected. Keep in mind this device acts like a remote, and thus must point toward the devices in order to turn on and off.
