pilight works without connected hardware
#1
Hi there,

first of all thank you for this project and all the effort you put in. I found it easy to install and make my first steps with it, because it is so well documented.

But while using it and debugging my hardware (sender and receiver) I noticed, that pilight-receive is receiving a signal send by pilight-send even though there is no receiver connected. In fact send and receive work also when there is no hardware connected at all.

So my question is, if this is intended? This way one can't figured out if either of receiver or sender works or is wired correctly. I guess a workaround is using pilight-raw?

Thanks in advance and best regards
Philipp

So how can we test the hardware with pilight? Is there anytool to receive and send real data?

You can use the pilight nightly codebase. That also sends and receives at the same time but for actual over the air sent codes as well, not just the internal processed ones.
