Re: INterfacing RPi with HAI home automation devices

Thank you for your reply, Sorry for my slow response. I was not able to find a spec sheet for the board, but did find a spec sheet (of a sort) for the receptacle. It appears that HAI uses x10 on them. One port is a standard port, and the other is an x10 port. I found numerous other posts about using...

INterfacing RPi with HAI home automation devices

I have and HAI Omni II home automation/alarm panel. The panel died and HAI wants thousands of dollars for the current replacement model, as my model is no longer available or under warranty.

Re: Receive signal from a keyless entry remote

No, my goal is not to hack remote systems, but you do bring some very good points here. I was actually discussing with a colleague, and am considering using some form of RFID instead. I am currently looking into what RFID receivers work with the Rpi.


Thanks for taking the time to post a reply.

The remote for the keyless entry on my truck, has 4 buttons. One of which, is not used on my vehicle. I would like to know if anyone knows of a way that I can configure the Rpi to receive and act on the press of that unused button? This is my scenario. I am trying to build an alram with the Rpi. The...

wlano: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

I receive this error, while attempting to run: sudo ifconfig wlan0 up. I have been through a dozen or so, articels that all talk about how easy it is to set up wireless on the rpi, but none seem to address the issue of the rpi not recognizing the fact that it has a wireless adaptor attached. My /etc...
