Raspberry Pi RF Switch


The rpi_rf switch platform allows you to control devices over 433/315MHz LPD/SRD signals with generic low-cost GPIO RF modules on a Raspberry Pi.

Interoperable with codes sniffed via the rpi-rf module or rc-switch. For more info see the PyPi module description: rpi-rf.

To enable, add the following to your configuration.yaml:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
switch:
  platform: rpi_rf
  gpio: 17
  switches:
    bedroom_light:
      code_on: 1234567
      code_off: 1234568
    ambilight:
      pulselength: 200
      code_on: 987654
      code_off: 133742
    living_room_light:
      protocol: 5
      code_on: 654321
      code_off: 654320

Configuration variables:

  • gpio (Required): GPIO to which the data line of the TX module is connected.
  • switches: (Required): The array that contains all switches.
    • [entry] (Required): Name of the switch. Multiple entries are possible.
      • code_on (Required): Decimal code to switch the device on.
      • code_off (Required): Decimal code to switch the device off.
      • protocol (Optional): RF Protocol (Default is 1).
      • pulselength (Optional): Pulselength (Default is the protocol default).
