Lighting4 alarm keypad
« on: January 14, 2018, 09:25:29 am »
Hi, I have an alarm keypad I would like to use together with vera and rfxtrx.
It has 3 options Away Arm, Stay Arm and Disarm. Rfxtrx is creating a door sensor named "RFX Door D/A9070".
So far ok. (I can use the door sensor when tripped to run a scene). Problem is all three buttons is tripping the door sensor.
I checked all buttons in RFXmngr and received this:

Packettype    = Lighting4
subtype       = PT2262
Sequence nbr  = 6
Code          = A90701 decimal:11077377
S1- S24  = 1010 1001 0000 0111 0000 0001
Pulse         = 366 usec
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype    = Lighting4
subtype       = PT2262
Sequence nbr  = 7
Code          = A90702 decimal:11077378
S1- S24  = 1010 1001 0000 0111 0000 0010
Pulse         = 361 usec
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype    = Lighting4
subtype       = PT2262
Sequence nbr  = 11
Code          = A90704 decimal:11077380
S1- S24  = 1010 1001 0000 0111 0000 0100
Pulse         = 361 usec
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------

It looks like the rfxtrx plugin is missing the last character in the Code line: ex. A90701 is picked up as A9070 by the plugin. Is there anything I can change in the plugin to get the right codes so that every button is creating its own device?

Hi! It is an unbranded chinese one. Have a look here: https://goo.gl/iJ8kW4 the description says it uses EV1527 chip.

Thanks

I am on latest Ext2 firmware 1022 and when I enable both Lighting4 and AC protocol I am receiving this for the three buttons:

Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Kangtai, Cotech
Sequence nbr  = 0
ID            = 3D84 decimal:15748
Unit          = 16
Command       = Off
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Kangtai, Cotech
Sequence nbr  = 1
ID            = 3D84 decimal:15748
Unit          = 21
Command       = On
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
Packettype    = Lighting5
subtype       = Kangtai, Cotech
Sequence nbr  = 2
ID            = 3D84 decimal:15748
Unit          = 6
Command       = On
Signal level  = 4  -88dBm

It's difficult to say if this device will work properly or not. Using both Lighting4 and AC may give you what you need. Have you tried this using the transceiver with Vera? What happens when autocreate is enabled? You may try the LightwaveRF protocol as well (without the others).
Since this device is made in China I don't suppose it has an FCC ID anywhere on it? Many devices do but not all I guess.

Hello. Using both Lighting4 and AC wont create a device but I can see the msg is received in the rfxtrx settings menu on Vera. I could not find any FCC ID. If there is any help, the keypad works perfectly with this module: https://goo.gl/oFpyqx and I have used the fibaro universal sensor FGBS-001 with it. But It will be good if I can skip the fibaro sensor and talk directly to vera.

Thanks for helping.
