homebridge-rf-chacon-dio

Homebridge plugin purpose-built for controlling 433MHz radio frequency outlets, using chacon / dio protocol, which can be purchased inexpensively. (i.e. these). Homebridge maintains state information, so you can always know if you left that lamp on.

Tested on a Raspberry Pi Zero running Raspbian (Debian) and Node.js v6.9.0. This should work on most Raspberry Pi models, however YMMV

Supports lights, switches, and fans

Installation

  • Install homebridge
    sudo npm install -g homebridge

  • Install homebridge-rfoutlets
    sudo npm install -g homebridge-rf-chacon-dio

  • Update your homebridge configuration

Notes

  • The user which homebridge is run from must be on the list of sudoers as the chacon_send executable requires root privileges
  • A great guide on how to record RF signals and set up your Pi to transmit can be found here. Note: the web portion of the guide is not required
