FYI - Dont try to set any device to device type ‘remote’. Vera cant handle this, and the device will be ‘lost’ or ‘hidden’ from the GUI. I had to use API calls to 3480 port to set back an Aeotec Gen6 doorbell endpoint (ie, button 1) back to ‘generic io’ device type to ‘resurrect it’.
Not sure what you’d trying to do, but there’s a category (9) for remote controls.
It’s probably missing from the UI because something else is not compatible. In general, do not change them, unless you know what you’re doing.
IIRC, this was to do with bridging controllers… but I may be wrong – it’s been such a long time since I did that! (Don’t bother, more trouble than it’s worth.)
