2.8.1 • Public • Published

node-red-contrib-rfxcom

A collection of Node-RED nodes to send and receive home automation commands and data using an RFXCOM RFXtrx433E home automation controller. Also compatible with the older RFXtrx433 transceivers.

Install

Either install from the palette, or use npm to install this package locally in the Node-RED data directory (by default, $HOME/.node-red):

cd $HOME/.node-red
npm install node-red-contrib-rfxcom

The nodes will be added to the palette the next time node-RED is started, under the 'home automation' category.

Nodes included in the package

rfx-lights-in Receives messages from 'lighting' type devices such as remote controls, and PIR sensors used as light switches.

rfx-lights-out Sends messages to 'lighting' type devices including switches, dimmers, and some types of relay.

rfx-blinds-in Receives messages from curtains, blinds, and awnings remote controls (also supports the LightwaveRF in-line relay)

rfx-blinds-out Sends commands to curtains, blinds, and awnings motors, including Somfy/RFY units (also supports the LightwaveRF in-line relay)

rfx-doorbell-in Receives messages from wireless bell pushes

rfx-doorbell-out Sends messages to wireless door chimes

rfx-meter Receives messages from wireless energy monitors such as OWL, and Carteletronic TIC/Linky transmitters

rfx-sensor Receives messages from temperature, humidity, pressure and other weather sensors. Also handles soil moisture sensors, Digimax thermostats, and the Maverick ET-732 BBQ thermometer.

rfx-trv Sends set temperature commands to Smartwares Thermostatic Radiator Valves

rfx-heat Sends commands to various types of wood & gas stoves, thermostats, and other heating devices

rfx-detector Receives messages from wireless intruder and smoke detectors, and X10 alarm system remotes. This node and the associated software must not be used in situations where the avoidance of damage to or loss of property, or protection from risk of injury or death, may depend on its correct operation.

rfx-alarm Sends X10 alarm system commands, including the 'panic' command which will also cause smoke detector & intruder alarm sounders to sound. This node and the associated software must not be used in situations where the avoidance of damage to or loss of property, or protection from risk of injury or death, may depend on its correct operation.

rfx-PT2262-in Receives messages from devices using the PT2262 chipset. Many no-name remote controls and alarm systems use these chips

rfx-PT2262-out Sends messages to devices using the PT2262 family of chips.

Basic help text is provided for each node. Additional information is available in the 'RFXmngr.exe' program supplied with the RFXtrx433E, and more details may be found in the SDK documentation, available on request from RFXCOM.

Example flow

The following Node-RED flow listens to an Oregon temperature sensor, and turns a HomeEasy relay on if the temperature is 9.5 degrees or less, off otherwise:
