There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Was really easy to setup and use though. I have an eight year old portable air conditioner with which I use a third party universal remote and it connected straight away. Easy. And now i can operate it with Alexa. Love it.
And setup is easy if you know the exact frequency of your remotes. Has exceeded my expectations on performance.

However, the Broadlink app is not more convenient than a physical remote control, and is less well laid out, and has less button mapping, than the apps that come with my receiver, DVD, Lights, etc. The real improvement is the ultimate goal of controlling the RM4Pro with my smart home assistant. I use G----e H--m Assistant ("GHA"), one of the two Alexa competitors. And this works pretty well. The switches have to be set up as "bulb" in Broadlink, or GHA won't recognize them. The control with GHA for the receiver/DVD is basic: on and off. But I really only wanted to control the lights, and the other device on-off control is really “gravy.” If you want to control more, like volume, changing source, etc., you should use the Broadlink app, physical remote, app that came with the device, or set up scenes in Broadlink (then you have to use the "activate scene" terminology in GHA).
Con: I accidentally included sub-devices, temperature and humidity, when setting up the RM4Pro, and I cannot find a way to remove them without starting all over. Given how long it took to learn all the remotes and buttons, I actually ordered the sensor cable so that they will be functional rather than have to set everything up again. The sensor and humidity are interesting, in that they confirm my thermostat readings and are more precise (to two decimal points).
Note: The RM4Pro cannot control Bluetooth controlled devices, like a PS4 or FireTV; but they do not advertise that they do, and could not do so without cooperation from the manufacturers anyway.
Con: If you have a 5 [MHz] and 2.4 [MHz] WiFi broadcasting the same SSID, you have to disable the 5 [MHz] when setting up, or the device won't connect.
Con: I had some trouble getting the RM4 Pro to connect to my WiFi LAN. I tried about 7 times, and, after the Broadlink app connected to the device, it just kept failing when trying to send the SSID and password to the device. I tried in AP mode and smart mode. I unplugged it and re-plugged it several times, and one time and it finally worked. Be persistent and keep resetting the device. Once set up though, it has been rock-solid.
Con: This device does not come with a USB power supply. You must supply a USB type-c that can put out at least 1 amp. I tried an old supply that put out 0.7 amps, and the device was flaky with this underpowered power supply.
Overall, this Broadlink device paired with RF/IR is a much cheaper way to get smart on-off control than buying lots of smart lamp sockets individually. I’m already paying a significant amount to control overhead lights with Lutron’s Caseta hub system as I slowly replace switches for $150 a pop as I get the version with the built-in preset and matching Pico remote and pedestal.
Conclusion: I'm actually very happy the RM4 Pro solution the more I use it. Now I am going to buy some of the RM4 Pro's little brothers, the IR-only remotes, to hit some IR fans in other rooms. Looking at some information on-line, it looks like I'll get the on-off functionality with GHM easily, and will have to use Broadlink's scenes for oscillate, speed, etc.
The only way to get the BroadLink app to remote IR control my Frigidaire window A/C unit was to put the app in "learn mode" (for selection 'my brand is not listed') where I would use the Frigidaire remote to program the A/C unit as I desired it to operate then turn it off. Then put the BroadLink app and device in "learn mode", point the Frigidaire remote toward the front of the BroadLink device and press the Frigidaire Power On button.
The BroadLink app encountered multiple errors both trying to learn just the Power On button and then the "+" button options which I can only describe as "scenes" (temp/fan/mode/auto/energy-saver settings). I've attached a screenshot of that error screen.
Note (another screenshot) that in the "Me" section of the BroadLink app I have my settings set to "Fahrenheit" but for my Frigidaire A/C unit the app's device control screen is still showing Celsius. BroadLink tech support, who did respond quickly, says they're still working on the Fahrenheit issue.
The BroadLink app has zero effect doing anything other than powering on/off the Frigidaire window A/C unit. BroadLink support informed me that they're working to add additional brands like Frigidaire and my model in particular. I've also included a screenshot of the BroadLink app's remote control screen for the Frigidaire A/C unit.
Moving on to Alexa control. You must add the BroadLink skill to Alexa to control any devices via the BroadLink device. When my "AC" device was added to Alexa it shows up as a 'thermostat' not as an 'air conditioner'. The only command Alexa will acknowledge is "Alexa turn off AC". This will either turn on OR turn off the A/C unit. If you say "Alexa turn on AC" Alexa responded "AC doesn't support that". I'm guessing this is because the device type is misclassified as a thermostat and not an air conditioner (see attached screenshot), but I don't know precisely why this occurs.
I'll update this review in coming weeks and months depending on how the app and device operate including with Alexa.
At this time I don't any RF devices to test with so I can only talk about IR functions.
I'll try to teach you what I've learned so that, hopefully, you can love this device as much as I do.
Firstly, if the item is in the database, and you add it in via the database, then it will become a scene immediately. It has to be a scene to connect to Alexa. Also, don't forget you need to add broadlink as a skill in your alexa app as well. If it's not an item in the database then you can add it as a "user define". I prefer to add items as a user define, I've found that it works better for me in the ifttt and alexa apps. If it is a user define you must make a scene for each individual button you add IF you want that button to have voice control. Let's say my fan remote has 3 buttons: power, oscillate, and speed. I wanted to be able to tell my fan to turn on and oscillate, but I don't care about controlling the speed of the fan with my voice. I would only make two scenes: one to turn on the fan, and one to make it oscillate. I could still control the speed via the broadlink app or the remote itself, but I wouldn't be able to voice control it.
Let's learn about voice control, since it's a little weird too. You can only turn scenes on in Alexa. Meaning I can't say "turn off fan" you have to say "turn on fan off". As a side note, all this device can do is emulate the buttons on your remote so technically you should just say, "Turn on fan" to get it to turn off, since most power buttons turn the device on and off. Controlling devices vocally through scenes themselves is hard and extremely confusing. So make it a TON easier on yourself by using alexa routines.
Routines are life.
I have 3 different devices with three different remotes that I have to use every time I want to watch TV or play video games. Instead of having to fumble remotes I can say three words to Alexa and she will turn my TV on, my soundbar on, and the TV switched to the correct aux device almost immediately (pics of what some of my routines look like). It operates from top to bottom, so first it turns on my TV, then my sound bars, then switches to the auxiliary cord my nintendo switch or fire stick is plugged into (depending on which routine I trigger). Most of my routines are voice activated but they can be activated by time, action, location etc.
My smart home, and remote count, is drastically improved by this affordable device.
2. The grammar is horrible and clearly hasn't been checked over by somebody fluent in English.
3. You can link the device with Alexa, and it shows what you've set up, but you can't get alexa to actually control any of this device. Essentially the voice assistant features are useless to this device current software, and that's the only reason I bought this. Disappointed and will be returning.
I can use my google assistant to on-off, set temperature of my air conditional with no problem at all --> my air conditioner brand found in the library can fast to add it.
I use my google assistant to on-off my fan --> because my fan not common brand so I use learn function to learn from my fan ir remote control with no problem at all.
I use my google assistant to on-off my air purifier --> same as fan my air purifier is local OEM brand so I use learn function to learn the it remote control and add the devide to broadlink app with no problem, after add the device I also link it all to google assistant.
I can use my google assistant to on-off my tv --> Same as my air conditioner, my tv is LG smart tv so added to broadlink device with no problem at all with the library data.
Very satisfied with the result, actually can set condition in broadlink app for the devices but since I just set up today so will do it later.
Actually before I tried the same product with other not famous brand same device, it can add my tv to the device and used with google assistant, but other devices only can add by learn the remote control but only can use my phone as remote, the learned function couldn't use in my speak assistant normally. Very disappointed.
Then I decided purchase this "Broadlink RM4 pro" and try it, all function normal and link to speak assistant with all devices also operate with no problem by the speak assistant. And the temperature & humidity sensor also function with no problem in broadlink app, I can add it to my speak assistant but not yet know how to use it with speaking. ;D
Thank you, very happy. Recommended the item.
