homebridge-rcswitch-gpiomem v1.1.4

Siri / HomeKit control of RF switches by way of homebridge. Fork of https://github.com/FWeinb/homebridge-rcswitch

homebridge-rcswitch-gpiomem

http://n8henrie.com/2015/12/control-an-rf-outlet-with-siri-via-homebridge

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).
