    Control RF outlets with HomeKit / Siri using rcswitch-gpiomem

    Installation

    1. Install WiringPi
    2. Install homebridge: npm install -g homebridge
    3. Install homebridge-rcswitch-gpiomem: npm install --global homebridge-rcswitch-gpiomem
    4. Update your configuration file.

    Configuration

    See sample-config.json

    Either onCode and offCode or systemcode and unitcode are required. My switches use on and off codes, so that's what I recommend and all I can really help with.

    • accessory: Must be RCSwitch (case sensitive)
    • name :: string :: What you want to call the switch. Keep in mind that Siri will prefer anything other than your homebridge switch if there's any confusion, so name it something unique
    • onCode, offCode :: int or string
      • If int: Decimal RF code to turn switch on / off
      • If string: Binary RF code to turn switch on / off
    • systemcode :: string :: RF system code. I don't use this, please refer to other docs.
    • unitcode :: int :: RF unit code. I don't use this, please refer to other docs.
    • pin :: int, optional :: BCM pin connected to 433 mhz transmitter, defaults to 17
    • pulseLength :: int, optional :: RF pulse length, defaults to 190
    • bitLength :: int, optional :: bit length of RF code, only used if using decimal RF code, defaults to 24
    • repeats :: int, optional :: Number of times to repeat the transmission of the code, defaults to 10 (as per the original rcswitch code)

    Changelog

    20160727 :: 1.1.3

    • Move setRepeatTransmit to just before calling switchOn() to facilitate multiple switches with different desired repeat counts

    20160727 :: 1.1.2

    • Move setPulseLength from initialization to just before calling switchOn() to facilitate multiple switches with different pulse lengths (closes #2).
