Module to operate 433/315Mhz devices like power outlet sockets, relays, etc. This will most likely work with all popular low cost power outlet sockets with a SC5262 / SC5272, HX2262 / HX2272, PT2262 / PT2272, EV1527, RT1527, FP1527 or HS1527 chipset.
This module uses some code from the original rc-switch Arduino lib but NodeMCU and Arduino are not fully compatible. This required that rc-switch was rewritten into rfswitch NodeMCU with Lua support.
Connection of transmitter¶
|vin or +||3V3||3.3 - 5 volts on ESP8266 or other power source|
|ground or -||GND||ground should be connected to ESP8266 and to power source|
|data pin||6||almost any pin on ESP8266|
You can read more about connection here.
Selecting proper protocol¶
This module supports transmitting data using 6 different protocols and you should use one most suitable for your needs. Receiving data is not supported yet. So, you cannot listen radio air and get protocol details using Lua.
You should get something like this:
Decimal: 11001351 (24Bit) Binary: 101001111101111000000111 Tri-State: not applicable PulseLength: 517 microseconds Protocol: 5 Raw data: 7200,1004,528,504,1048,980,336,1176,356,1176,352,1180,1108,412,356,1172,364,1168,356,1160,1176,1124,412,336,1180,1116,440,328,1188,340,1228,1060,416,1160,380,1160,1108,464,1068,436,328,1232,1060,412,1116,440,1088,428,3024,
Transmit data using the radio module.
rfswitch.send(protocol_id, pulse_length, repeat, pin, value, length)
protocol_idpositive integer value, from 1-6
pulse_lengthlength of one pulse in microseconds, usually from 100 to 650
repeatrepeat value, usually from 1 to 5. This is a synchronous task. Setting the repeat count to a large value will cause problems. The recommended limit is about 1-4. If you need more, then call it asynchronously a few more times (e.g. using node.task.post)
pinI/O index of pin, example 6 is for GPIO12, see details
valuepositive integer value, this is the primary data which will be sent
lengthbit length of value, if value length is 3 bytes, then length is 24
-- Lua transmit radio code using protocol #1 -- pulse_length 300 microseconds -- repeat 5 times -- use pin #7 (GPIO13) -- value to send is 560777 -- value length is 24 bits (3 bytes) rfswitch.send(1, 300, 5, 7, 560777, 24)
