tell me, and if there is in the nature of such aeromysh that it was possible to configure the basic buttons (on / off, volume, navigation, etc.) for several different devices (TV box, a TV set, a movie theater, etc.), BUT that would be used with the buttons are the same.
I have in mind - then pressed a button, for example the conditional F1 and take control of telecom, then clicked the conditional F2 and the same key has to control the receiver, the F3 - TV box.
Like remote working via radio, no, it is unlikely he will appear. Now this probably can be realized console with Bluetooth, remote switchable KM-Switch and HDMI CEC technology, but these methods require modification. You've said yourself that trained infrared remotes do not suit you. Suitable Bluetooth and 2,4 GHz device produces the Logitech company, but it is a keyboard or three-button mouse, which in turn can work with multiple devices. For other radio standards, the apparatus will also be difficult. WI-FI consoles there is very little, but a lot of devices such as AV receiver does not contain a built-in wi-fi module and an external, too, can not be connected to it. Technology RF 2,4 GHz GFSK would imply supply included with each console several USB dongle, which is unrealistic. For this option may have been able to adapt the KM-switch, but it also switches have to be performed remotely.
probably the mostuniversal solution
It would have been a trainee / programmable switching hub. This is an external device that could accept commands (for example, from a conventional radio remote control 2.4 GHz through a connected dongle), converting these commands command and standards
drain remote controlled devices (infrared, Bluetooth, RF 2.4 GHz GFSK, WiFi) and to redirect respective controlled devices. Of course, such a hub must be easily customized by the user, to have a big database with a ready set of commands for different consoles, the ability to create macros and sequences of commands, select the device and control it using voice commands (predefined and custom), etc. This option is good because it does not require any alteration of the control console and managed devices themselves. I think these devices is quite possible to implement based on Arduino technology. Perhaps something similar has long existed within the framework of a "smart" home, but important here is the acceptable price of the hub. Post has been editedgun-fan - 29.05.20, 13:43
