Christmas Tree Lights

We have a Martha Stewart Christmas tree which comes with lights and a remote key fob to change the colors, patterns, etc. With how capable the smart remote is, I don't think this would be very difficult to include as a potential device. It is just an IR remote. I was going to program the smart remote for it, but I wasn't able to do so because the device options are more A/V or smart home related. For instance, I tried to see if I could pick a more generic device that would have an IR remote, but the app doesn't offer that kind of functionality. It will give you other options though which is great, but not for a more generic item.

 

I love this remote. It is so simple to use, and so feature rich especially for something this new in its life cycle.

  • Hi  Joel Attri ,
    Thanks for submitting this request and sharing your feedback!
    Today, IR devices are mainly limited to AV Devices as you have noticed, but we are working on giving the ability to add any type of IR device. While waiting for this feature to be released, I can suggest you to try this workaround:
    1. Add any type of IR device from Smart Remote App. You can add a TV for example.
    2. Edit the device to rename it as "Tree Lights" or something.
    3. Customize your device to remove all buttons.
    4. Add buttons from your Christmas Tree remote with IR learning.
    5. You should be able to control your device

    Unfortunately, adding the device this way doesn't allow to add it in a home scene.
    I know this is not ideal but I wanted to share this workaround with you if you want to give a try. 
    Let me know how it goes. Thank you for your patience
