I am in the market for a new TV and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a brand that has good smart home integrations. I currently am using a Vizio TV that has a third party Hubitat driver which is good enough, but my main automation with it is to control/detect the on/off state and change the lights in the room and behind the TV accordingly. It works fine obviously when controlling the TV via that integration, Alexa in my case, but when using the included remote, Vizio doesn’t seem to support pushing it’s status, you can only poll for it, which I have had to figure out a clever way to do that with a zigbee plug that pushes power updates, but that all increases latency.
This is where my question comes. Does anyone know of any TV manufacturer that supports pushing of the TV status via their API? Node-RED nodes would be preferable.
Another option would be to use a universal remote that has an integration, but with Logitech pulling out, that space is uncertain to say the least.
Thanks in advance.
