Recording RF signal

I don’t think this is useful for you, given that the “official” signal recorder doesn’t output anything. Harrie’s tool won’t fix that (and besides, even if you were able to “record” a signal, you’d still need to write a Homey app around it before you can actually use it, Homey simply doesn’t have the capability to record and re-play RF signals).

Thnx for all the input guys but this is too much for me;) i just want to connect my ventilation to homey :’)

@Otter probably you can explain what device you want to use (Branch, Type, Picture)?

Its an Orcon 10rf remote working on 868mhz

I’m dealing the same challenge for my hood:

and for an electric gas fire:

and for some lights in my terrace covering and so on.

In other words: a simple way to record the signal (f.e. using the above mentioned tool(s)) and put them into an app.

Same here with faber optimist and an tv elevator.

Would be nice to have a simple way … but it look to be difficult to develop a simple tool unfortunately.

Many devices have also the possibility to connect a switch or a relay that can provide remote control.

My awning remote on 433 MHz gives the record in dev. site. Is there any chance there will be an option/app to record and teach Homey other devices on the frequencies? I’ve read some comments that it would be too complicated for the user or so. Even the dumb chinese key remotes can teach any other remote however Homey can not do it :frowning: It was also one of the reasons I bought it. Despite I love it, I am missing this option a lot.

Nop, not possible with the current SDK. If Athom doesn’t make it it will not come.

Copy. Nevertheless what is than the purpose of the record function in developer menu?

For developing, analyse the signal patterns, timings, etc.
To describe the signal for a app to have knowledge of what is on or off, or what is 1 2 3 4 etc. So learning a remote also learns all capabilities or functions without having to learn each button…

how do i connect a switch/relay to my ventilation system? do you have a build guide or an example that i can copy?

Have a look at:
this topic is about RF signals, please search for “ventilation” for the right topic.

Ehh started the topic myself… if its not possible fine but that doesnt mean my problem still stands

Why is this impossible?

If this is still about recording RF signals then no problem. If it’s about connecting a switch/relay to ur ventilation system then it becomes off-topic and u best search the forum for the correct topics for this particular issue. Or follow the link @JPe4619 gave u.

it is not impossible i guess? but im not thát technical… no clue what to buy and how to set it up…

I have the same problem trying to connect the homey to my wave kitchen design hood. I have tried this using a broadlink RM device, however the wave hood lamp operates on a long press of the light button which I can’t manage to get the broadlink RM to learn. Did you finally found a solution to connect your wave hood to momey?

Hi, I’ve used a Broadlink RMPro. I’ve used Homey to learn the codes in the Broadlink and made buttons in the Homey to send the correct codes to the Broadlink. Works fine. It’s just that the Homey sometimes looses the Broadlink codes and I have to start over again. That’s so strange.
But overall: works fine.

Seems strange to me that there is no easy wat to catch the 433 MHz codes so they’re directly usable in an app.

That is also what I have tried, however I can’t seem to be able to learn the BroadLink RM Pro the long pressing of the light on button to goto dimmed mode when switching on the light of the hood. How did you manage to learn the long press of a button on the wave design hood?
