Way to link to another app/remote?
I use 3 "remote apps" on my Note4. I use Unified Remote for everything related to my PC(s), an app called "Sure Universal Remote" for our AC, and then Anymote Smart Remote for everything IR based in my living-room. Id like to know if there is a way to add a button to my Unified Remote widget that links to a remote in my Anymote Smart Remote App, and another one for Sure Universal Remote .
I dont think there is a direct way. The only way I could think of is to use Macrodroid/Tasker create an Activities shortcut for the desired remotes' functions, then fire that from UR. Are you familiar with those apps?
I use Tasker (amazing app), but I don't know how I'd go about adding the task to UR. I'd also have to play around with Tasker a bit to create an "activity" that you're referring to.
Tasker allows me to create a profile and task for the Anymote, but i can't seem to get it to utilize a specific remote within the app. Any suggestions?
There is an Anymote plugin for Tasker you need (Search "tasker" here).
But on closer look, the Widget Change Action/Device Action/Tasker does not seem to be working. When I create a Profile as described here, the widget does nothing.
I have gotten it to work though with this workaround:
So for step 5 in TASKER, you would select your new Anymote plugin, and it should contain shortcuts for remotes/remote commands. Same goes for Sure Universal Remote (plugin for Android, plugin for iPhone).
It all seems a bit roundabout, I might be missing something, but that s the only way I know at the moment. Once work is done though it works fine.
