    rpi-clickety

    A node library that can receive, decode, and transmit 433Mhz remote controlled outlet signals using your raspberry pi. Inpired by rc-switch. I made this to control the switches I have at home (HS2260A chip).

    Features

    • Sniff transmissions and output decoded values
    • Output raw pulse timing data (as base64)
    • Code based transmit
    • Can also transmit based on raw pulse timing data

    Installation

    This module depends on the JS pigpio library for high-speed gpio twiddling so follow the installation instructions there.

    Usage

    Note: I used the cheapo 433Mhz transmitter/receiver modules that can be obtained for under $5. All testing was done on a Rpi Zero WH.

    ⚠ Note on pin numbering: The underlying pigpio library uses the Broadcom GPIO numbers so make sure you are using the correct numbers.

    Receiving

    Setup:

    • Pi pin 1 (3v3) <-> Receiver Vcc
    • Pi pin 6 (GND) <-> Receiver GND
    • Pi pin 13 (GPIO27) <-> Receiver DATA
     
    //Note we are passing 27 not 13 for pin param
    const receiver = new Receiver(27);
     
    //receiver is an event emitter that will emit received codes
    //along with other useful info.
    receiver.on('code', (data) => {
     
      console.log(data.code); //Print decimal code
    });
     
    receiver.listenStart();
     

    Transmit

    Setup:

    • Pi pin 2 (5V) <-> Transmitter Vcc
    • Pi pin 6 (GND) <-> Transmitter GND
    • Pi pin 11 (GPIO17) <-> Transmitter DATA
     
    const tx = new Transmitter(17);
    tx.transmit(1406220); //Send decimal code

    Install

    npm i rpi-clickety
