Re: RFSniffer - Can't get it working

I also have a problem too. Using piscope, I can see the signal changing when a remote button is pressed but I cannot read the signal. After running pigs fg 150 , there was still some noise so I ran pigs fg 300 which removed a lot of the noise. Now, everytime I press a button, there is a signal but ...

Hub recommendation for RPi + Homebridge automation

I have been running several RPi in my house and using the RF 433mhz devices setup with Homebridge and controlled with the Apple Home app. I have an RF receiver and broadcaster boards attached to the GPIO in the main RPi 3. To extend the range of the RF transmitter I put a second RPi up stairs with a...

I seem to have fixed my issue. I decided to blow away my /etc/network/interface file that I customized to static ip. I did not do this today buy a long time ago. No clue why it happened today. Maybe a reboot? I cleaned up the file to what I thought was pretty close to the default settings. That fix...

Re: RPI 3 No wireless interfaces found

I noticed it was down then plugged in the hardwire and then did the update/upgrade reboot.

I should also note I am using a 5V/2.5A power adapter. A lot of post are saying a power issue so I wanted to check that once off.

RPI 3 No wireless interfaces found

Okay, the dreaded "No wireless interfaces found" has hit my newest RPi 3. No indication what causes it as it was working jus fine today. I have read a few posts on this but it doesn't look like there is any fix. Has there been any new developments with this issue?

HomeBridge USB Camera Support?

Are there any USB cameras working with Homebridge? I have motion all setup on a few RPis and looking to get them now working with Homebridge. I am not having any luck finding a NPM package that supports IP Cameras.

Any suggestions?

Re: 433MHz switch vs GPIO switch

Messing around with AC wiring may be illegal and void insurance coverage. You need to be authorized to do it. At least in Finland. As an idea to use direct control vs 433MHz is better when you think about safety. It is not difficult to set up a sniffer, record your commands and playback them at ano...

Does anyone have an RPi 3 working with an RF sensor? I am still trying but until now I failed (see https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=164177 ): Those sensors pick up too much "noise" (in fact they show me those signal-numbers all the time without any button pressed, the reason seems...

Let's assume we don't have wires all over the place and the dog and kids are not tripping over live wires running abound the room :) Do you think a switch board like this would be unsafe driving a single light? This is a 8 channel board but they make 1 and 2 channel boards that would allow for a sin...

Re: RFSniffer - Can't get it working

I have ready just about every tutorial online for the RF readers/receiver and they all differ a bit. They are not the same and none of them use a RPi 3. I just don't think there are any update to date clear tutorials. If you know of one that you think works for sure please post it. Thanks!
