Switching ceiling fan with pilight-send -p raw
#1
Hi forum !

I am new to pilight but what I have seen so far is really great. I have been playing around with a gpio connected receiver and transmitter and I am able to switch some old intertechno wall plugs I had laying around. Receiving from an intertechno remote also works.

I use pilight 7.0 from http://apt.pilight.org/ on a raspi B2 with raspian 8.0

My goal is to take control of my ceiling fan. The remote has 4 Buttons for the motor
off / low / med / hi and a fifth button "light" that toggles the integrated light fixture.
Inside the remote there is a 4 way dip switch to set a house code which has to be the same as the code that is used in the receiver in the fan.
It looks similar to this [Image: Fan%20remote%20control%20OET-FRC210.jpg]

Unfortunately pilight does not seem to know this type of remote control.

I do not get any output in pilight-receive when I press buttons on the remote. So I tried to capture some raw data with pilight-debug


This is what I get for Button "High"

Code:
pilight-debug
Press and hold one of the buttons on your remote or wait until
another device such as a weather station has send new codes
The debugger will automatically reset itself after one second of
failed leads. It will keep running until you explicitly stop it.
This is done by pressing both the [CTRL] and C buttons on your keyboard.

I have tried to send this to the fan with

Code:
pilight-send -p raw --code="253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 506 253 253 506 8602"

but the fan would not switch on.

What are my options now ?

Thanks for any ideas, I am stuck with this project at the moment :-(

Regards,

Roland
