Upcoming project - Hacking fans and beds
November 14th, 2020
Update: I've written about my quick and dirty fan hacking experience using some of this research.
I have one of those TempurPedic adjustable bed frames, but not the WiFi-enabled one. I also have a few remote-controlled fans in this house. There are remotes everywhere now, and I'm not a huge fan of it.
I'm thinking of a project using one of my Raspberry Pis and an RF transmitter to control the fans and the bed.
Here's some resources I've found. I have transmitters/receivers from some of these tutorials arriving tomorrow. I'm throwing these links here for organization purposes, because now I have a lot of tabs open.
Tempur-Pedic Ease manual - Turns out the bed frame uses a 2.4 GHz radio frequency as opposed to the 433 mHz frequency of the Ergo, so I might be out of luck with the RF modules I bought.
Computer control your Tempurpedic Ergo bed frame - WiFi enabled bed frame, not really applicable, but a start.
DIY Tempurpedic Ergo Adjustable Bed Automation - Hacked the remote control, hardware hacking. I'd rather use a transmitter with a Raspberry Pi than disassemble the remote.
Tempurpedic Remote Relay - More remote hacking.
Bond Home - This will easily control the fans, not the bed.
Tempur-Pedic Ergo support - From the Bond forum, talks about why the Bond Bridge won't work with the Tempur-Pedic bed base.
Super Simple Raspberry Pi 433MHz Home Automation - This tutorial seems promising.
How I Automated My Home Fan with Raspberry Pi 3, RF Transmitter and HomeBridge - Probably going to use this tutorial as the base for my project.
