Ciao,
I've a led strip working with an infrared remote.
Following this article I was able to build my one remote (I prefered to go for a custom implementation as it's cheaper, smaller in size and you have more controll on power consumption) and connect it to EasyIot.

The remote send several codes that trigger different functionality of the led strip: ON, OFF, More Light, Less Light, Green, Red, Flash, Strobo, Etc...


So far I found two way to control it from the Web Interface:
- Several DO sensors (switches). Each one represent a button of the remote
- One AO (dimmer). The % of dimmer is decoded in different functionalities.

Both work but the are really not practical.

Do you have a better way to suggest? Should we think to support a new node type?
Let me know your feeling. I'm really open to enanchement and I can collaborate!

I've been thinking about this long time. With EasyIoT server you can build your sensor nodes like you do. In current version you have only predefined node types with predefined WEB UI interface. I'm planning in future releases to add new custom node types with custom control in WEB UI. That way you will be flexible to build your own node types with custom controls in WEB UI.

Very good news.
Please let me know if I can help. I'm quite experienced in .NET and I believe it should not be too complex.
