Today I would like to show you my new home assistant integration for Reaper digital audio workstation.
It allows you to trigger record (or any other action) directly from home assistant, as well as read some interesting data points like play state, number of tracks or beats per measurement.
This way you can use any actuator integrated with HA to start recording remotely.
My use case was pretty common for drummers who record themselves. My drum set is located at the opposite side of the studio than my PC.
With a battery powered remote controller, like Aqara wireless switch I can trigger recording in Reaper easily.
But there are more things you can do with it:
This custom integration is available in HACS default repository.
Source code for Reaper integration can be found here:\ https://github.com/kubawolanin/ha-reaper
And underlying python library to communicate with Reaper’s web interface is here:\ https://github.com/kubawolanin/python-reaperdaw
