Logitech remotes for presenting

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/01

A few links on Logitech remotes for presenters.

I like how the spotlight can highlight portions of the screen, but I wish it had the LCD display timer of the R800 and R700.

The big problem of the Spotlight seems to be the stability of the Logitech software, both on Windows and on MacOS.

The R series (R800/R700/R500/R400) have lasers that do not reflected well by modern big screens.

A great review of the various presenters is at [WayBack] What’s the Best Logitech Pointer? – R400 vs R700 vs R800 – Sky Tech Lasers.

TL;DR: Raspberry Pi models 1..3 become hotter and hotter under load; no housing gives best cooling.

How to change the control of a Somfy RTS roller blind from 2 to 1 remote – Projectionscreen.net

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/01/20

This procedure works for Somfy RTS motors to:

  • removing an additional channel
  • removing an additional remote

The trick is to have one remote/channel that you want to keep working as you need that one to initiate the deletion process:

  1. On the channel/remote you want to delete
    • Test with the up/down button that it is indeed the one you want to delete
  2. On the channel/remote you want to keep
    1. Test with up/down button
      • The Somfy RTS motor show now work
    2. Press the  small button with a pen
      • The Somfy RTS motor now should “wiggle”
  3. On the channel/remote you want to delete
    1. Press the  small button with a pen
      • The Somfy RTS motor now should “wiggle” again
    2. Test with up/down button
      • The somfy RTS motor should now do nothing
  4. On the channel/remote you want to keep
    1. Test with up/down button
      • The Somfy RTS motor show still work
