Flirc allows you to pair any remote control with your computer or media center. Just walk through our super simple cross platform pairing application, and you're done. Use your previously paired remote with no additional software on any machine with Flirc.
Flirc allows you to use nearly any remote control with any device that has USB including; FireTV, XBOX 360, XBOX One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4, HTPCs, Raspberry Pi, and more. Flirc's user-friendly software guides you through each step of the pairing process and takes just a few minutes to complete. After your remote is paired with Flirc, there is no other software to run or install on your device. Just plug Flirc into any USB port and enjoy! Flirc has partnered with Logitech Harmony to provide the best user experience on the best line of remote controls. Add the Flirc FireTV or XBMC/Kodi device to your Harmony Remote and it will work with Flirc without any additional configuration. You can also use the many built-in preset configurations in the Flirc software to quickly and easily configure Flirc with your remote for common applications such as XBMC/Kodi, FireTV, and Windows Media Center.
If your favorite application isn't one of the presets, simply use the virtual keyboard in the Flirc software to pair any button on your remote control with any standard keyboard key. Flirc works on any device that supports USB keyboards and is one of the top accessories sold for the Raspberry Pi. The Flirc team is always working on new features and improvements to enhance the user experience.
Free firmware updates are regularly released and are available on Flirc's website. Flirc is also working on an API for seamless integration within other applications. Remember to visit the Flirc website and forums for helpful tips, tricks, and support.

Super Simple Setup
Use our cross platform pairing application for easy remote control pairing. You are walked through the setup process one button at a time until your remote is paired. Pair any remote control button with any keyboard key and use our builtin application profiles for easy setup.
Suspend or Wakeup Your Computer
Pair the suspend and wakeup key to any remote control button for complete control of your media center. As long as your motherboard supports wake on USB, you're clicks away.
Backup, Restore, and Share
Your paired remote configuration is saved on your device but you can back it up or share it with our Cross platform applications.
Advanced Configuration
Because flirc acts as a keyboard, our GUI allows you to pair any remote control button with any keyboard key for advanced functionality. Run hot scripts, launch applications, all with a single remote control button.

You could use this in your raspberry pi running HASS to have it send an MQTT command to a smart garage door opener..
