Thanks for the comments!
@Noobhub The dock has it’s own small API, so it’s possible to send commands to it from other devices than the remote.
There’s an open API, so connecting to node red or other systems will be easy @maik. However we are planning to support Home Assistant, Homey and other platforms as well. The HA integration is already working @tom_l on the current software version, but we’re working on an integration on the HA side, so setup would be breeze and options to control the remote and dock from HA as well. And maybe see the remote’s battery status in HA.
Apple TV control is also on our list. Probably the first step is going to be Bluetooth control. But we’re keeping an eye on Matter as well and see where it goes. This would include HomeKit as well @DerPicknicker.
IR learning is working in the current version as well, however it requires a bit more work. We will make it available in the UI @madf78 @Paul.
One thing we cannot do @madf78 is to compete on price with large corporations. We’re small compared to those big players, but we do everything we can to negotiate good prices on components and make the price of the remote competitive.
And yeah, battery life It’s a big improvement over the current remote. We won’t be able to do weeks, but multiple days.
