control sockets with pilight (broken remote)
#1
Hi,

some time ago I bought a couple of remote controlled sockets with remote:
model powerfix profi RBC-A 3600R.

I never could get the units to work however. I press the 'learn' button on the sockets and then the buttons on the remote but nothing works.

I tried to get some data out of the remote by using a rpi with pilight-raw and debug:
- With raw there is too much static
- With debug nothing happens when I push one the three off buttons (there are three off buttons on the remote, one for each socket + a master switch. Same for the on buttons.)

Assuming i can't use the remote (I think it's broken), can I still use the two sockets using my raspberry pi and pilight? Could someone point me in the right direction?

The only thing I could find about the sockets/remote was in the following post, see extract below the link.

Try sending the raw codes with pilight-send and check what pilight-receive outputs (while the daemon is running):
Code:
pilight-send -p raw -c "885 1180 590 590 1475 1180 590 1475 590 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 1180 590 590 1475 1180 885 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 590 1475 81125"

Hi,

I get no output. pilight-receive only picks up a signal from a nearby weatherstation from my neighbours every now and then.

Best regards,
Jan

Just saying that you can use existing raw codes to check how it would have been recognized by pilight.

Ok. I'm not really sure what my next option is?
Or may I assume that I can't use the two sockets with pilight?

Thank you for your help so far by the way.

Do these devices have a learn function?

Yes, there is a learn button on them. No clue how they work however, if I have to press them once, or keep them pushed in.

Then just learn new codes you send with pilight.

I can just choose any protocol I want? Something like:

pilight-send -p kaku_switch -i 1 -u 1 -t

No, as i said. Check what protocol is represented by the raw codes you posted in the first post. Then use that protocol to learn new codes.
