rpi-rf Plugin for Homebridge

This plugin allows you to send 433MHz RF commands via HomeKit. I had no luck getting anything other than rpi-rf to communicate with my hardware. There are other plugins though, try those if this doesn't work for you.

Installation

  1. Install Homebridge using the official instructions.
  2. Install pip using sudo apt install python3-dev python3-pip.
  3. Install rpi-rf using sudo pip3 install rpi-rf.
  4. Install this plugin using sudo npm install -g homebridge-rpi-rf-switch --unsafe-perm.
  5. Update your configuration file. See configuration sample below.

Configuration

Edit your config.json accordingly. Configuration sample:

"platforms"[{
    "platform": "rfSwitch",
    "name": "RF Switch",
    "devices": [{
        "name" : "Outlet 1",
        "on_code": 999988851,
        "off_code": 999989622
    }, {
        "name" : "Outlet 2",
        "on_code":  379952729,
        "off_code": 379953500
    }]
}]

Note on Getting RF Codes

I've had the best luck with RFSniffer from the 433Utils project. Your mileage may vary.
