Control your home’s heating, cooling and more via IR with Google Home and RM3 Mini

Google Home has been available in ‘straya for a couple of months now, and it works well at controlling new “smart” wifi LED bulbs and power points. What if you want to use it to voice-control your other appliances – the ones that are not wifi-enabled and are too dumb to talk to Google?

All you need is a cheap IR-blaster called the RM3 Mini, plus an Android phone/tablet/TV box as a local server, and a number of free web-services.

Click here for the walk-through.
