Connecting LIDL Libra TR-502MSV

Post by sebasdomoticz » Friday 22 August 2014 15:29

Experts,
I have a small remote control set from LIDL ( Libra TR-502MSV ).
This looks like the KaKu remote controlled starter set.
Here is a picture Image.

I would like to connect this to my domoticz installation (RPi, RFXtrx433ext, Aeon Z-stick).
What steps can I take to connect this?
When I enable all modes on my RFXcom antenna, it cannot be learned and neither does it show up in the log.

thnx

Or try to get the protocol
Perhaps it is a clone of a support device.

Thanks for the quick responses.
I checked both links and the device is in none of the lists.
What can I do to discover the protocol?

You can use a spectrum analyzer, or use a SDR compatible device

have you tried the RFXCom RFXMngr application and set the undecoded on ?
If you receive something, you could kindly ask RFXCom to implement this, the devices are looking nice (by design!)

Yes I've tried out RFXmngr. I enabled every mode (except blind T0) and I could not discover the signal of the remote. Does this mean it cannot be controlled using this antenna?
It was hard for me to discover the remote signal because when I enabled the ARC and Oregon Scientific mode a LOT of data was logged (shall I post screenshots?). But when I did not enable these modes the antenna picked up nothing but my KaKu switches (which operate over Lighting 2/AC).

As you can see in the manual the type 1 and 2 RFXtrx433 support different systems (IKEA systems for instance) than the ext model. Can I solve this topic issue by adding a RFXtrx433 type1 to my installation ?

@ gizmocuz : I would like to tryout your solutions but I only found spectrum analysers that are very expensive to purchase and what do you mean by SDR compatible device?

The Device seems to work on 433,92Mhz (http://www.circuitsonline.net/forum/view/79771), to be sure about this you could take apart the remote and look at the chips inside.
It could be that this protocol is not supported by the RFXCOM. Maybe you can make it 'compatible' by using a middle-ware like I designed for cheap 433Mhz equipment. More info can be found here: http://www.thice.nl/convert-cheap-433mh ... convertor/

Somebody at tweakers.net has already drain the Libra TR-502MSV and learn the codes to LIRC, see: http://gathering.tweakers.net/forum/lis ... 5#29516055

Is it possible to add this to the RFXtrx433E firmware? So that we can use it in Domoticz?
