    Default Domoticz and Home Easy Pendants and PIR

    Hi all,

    My head is about to explode. I've managed to get a Home Easy switch recognised using Domoticz and my RFXCom transceiver and it can tell when the switch is on or off, and change its state using domoticz. However, i havent got a clue how to get my PIRs (HE851) and pendant lights (HE206) recognised. I can get the switch to pair up with the pendant without using the rfxcom, so the pendant is working.

    If i try to add a home easy light manually, it asks for a 5 digit ID that i dont have, and an automatic detection doesnt seem to work.

    Any ideas?

    I suppose the HE851 transmits 3 protocols:
    the older ARC/AB600 protocol, the AC HomeEasy UK protocol and the newer HE800 protocol.

    The ARC and AC protocols are supported by the RFXtrx433. The HE800 is not.

    Do you see ARC and/or AC packets from the PIR in RFXmngr?

    Thanks for that, i turned ARC and AC on as protocols on my RFXtrx (i had turned them off as i expected just to use the Homeeasy protoand the PIR has now been detected and is sending out both ARC and AC messages. Excellent stuff.. Now just to work out how to get the pendant light to work. May be the same issue?
