Noob here, trying out new things. I am attempting to set up a magic mirror and would like to use my HomeBridge Broadlink IR blaster to shutdown my raspberry pi when I leave the house.
If I set up the broadlink to send just the simple power command, if the pi is already off, the broadlink will turn the pi on when I leave the house- which defeats the purpose of trying to save energy.
Before I buy it, can I program a Flirc USB IR Receiver to just send a shutdown command? and is there a guide that anyone can link to me please?
