I am working on a RFXCOM interface to vera. It can receive X10 RF messages.

I now have a few devices working, like the standard remote HE300.
and the battery powered pir HE303
and the double wall switch HE308.

they now only produce log messages like HE303:
12/21/10 22:32:35.017   luup_log:41: [HOMEEASY: Device: 0008F49C Unit: 9 Command: off ( p: 8 i: 0 )]
12/21/10 22:32:37.018   luup_log:41: [HOMEEASY: Device: 0008F49C Unit: 9 Command: on ( p: 8 i: 0 )]

and HE300:

12/21/10 22:41:34.014   luup_log:41: [X10: B05-On]
12/21/10 22:41:46.019   luup_log:41: [X10: B-All lights on]
12/21/10 22:41:46.022   luup_log:41: [X10: B-All lights off]

and HE308:

12/21/10 22:42:38.015   luup_log:41: [HOMEEASY: Device: 000E870A Unit: 11 Command: off ( p: 12 i: 0 )]
12/21/10 22:42:39.013   luup_log:41: [HOMEEASY: Device: 000E870A Unit: 11 Command: on ( p: 12 i: 0 )]

I also get an oregon scientific message from my neighbour:
12/21/10 22:42:57.012   luup_log:41: [OREGONWGR918: WIND3 Device: AA Direction: 161 Speed:  0.00 Speed av:  0.00]

@evanes, I'd be interested in this for the weather station!

Didn't you have a thread for this?

I am waiting to get svn access to code.mios so I can share the code.
Suppose micasaverde support is slow due to the holidays..

LOL, I wish it was *just* because of the holidays :)

... Seriously though, What hardware is needed (receiver wise) for this to work?

I have an older version of the rfxcom receiver and transmitter.

see: http://www.rfxcom.com/receivers.htm

Product with ID: 10203  for Europe. You need to add a transmitter module with this receiver to have full functionality.

The website is very cluttered and unclear but the product works just fine..

Yes its certainly not clear on that website!

So I'd assume I'd need the LAN version; however which one:
10205 or 10204? And either the 70031 or the 89031 transmitter?

It may be a bit overkill, but my primary reason for interfacing this would be for the data from an Oregon Scientific weather station... more specifically the Anemometer; do you think this could be used to trigger events for scenes at a preset wind speed?

does that device act the same as the WGL800?  Is there some standard interface so if the  rfxcom works than the wgl would work with the same code?

(selfish reason is i have the wgl already- and you can use it with the crazy cheap(compared to z-wave) x-10 door window sensors)

strangely: I still have to create events for the oregon devices. It should be possible. But I do not know if your device is supported...

michaelk: I think the WGL800 is a competitor of RFXCOM. I do not think they communicate the same way.
