Protocol

The quigg_switch protocol sends 42 pulses like this

700 1400 700 700 1400 1400 700 1400 700 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 1400 700 700 1400 700 1400 700 1400 1400 700 81000

The first pulse is the header and the last pulse is the footer. These are meant to identify the pulses as genuine. We don’t use them for further processing. The next step is to transform this output into 20 groups of 2 pulses (and thereby dropping the header and footer pulse).

1400 700

If we now analyse these groups we can distinguish two types of groups:

  1. 700 1400
  2. 1400 700

So the first group is defined by a short 1st and 2nd long and the second group by a long 1st and 2nd short pulse. So we take either of these two pulses to define a logical 0 or 1. In our case a long 1st pulse means a 1 and a short 1st pulse means a 0. We then get the following output:

10110000000000010001

We can group the sequence of bits into the following groups A to H:

AAAAAAAAAAAA BB C D E F G H
101100000000 00 0 1 0 0 0 1

Each of the groups of bits (A to H) has a specific meaning:

Group Bit # Config name Range Description
A 1 to 12 id 1 to 4095 SystemCode
B 13, 14 unit 1 to 3 UnitCode
C 15 id 1 Command to all devices
D 16 all 0,1 Switch ON or OFF Dimmer DOWN or UP
E 17 dimm 0,1 switch, dimmer mode
F 18   0 always zero
G 19   0,1 internal, handled by driver
H 20   0,1 even parity bit

So this code represents:

"id": 2816,
"unit": 1
"state": Off

Examples

CLI command:

pilight-send -p quigg_gt7000 -i 2816 -u 1 -f

Comment

Extracting the system code id from an existing Globaltronics GT-7000 remote control device either requires a special version of the BPF, or you need to bypass the BPF.

After insertion of batteries the GT-7000 defaults to system code id #2816. Pressing the button “Neuer Code” located in the battery compartment, will trigger the generation of a new system code id. These are generated in sequential order, for the current quigg_switch protocol driver the id’s are:

2816, 1792, 3840, 128, 2176, 1152, 3200, 640, 2688, 1664, 3712, 384, 2432, 1408, 3456, 896, 2944, 1920, 3968, ....

To let the device learn a new value, press the learning mode button on the switch and send the appropriate CLI command with pilight-send (configure a switch to be unit #2 and system code id #29):

pilight-send -p quigg_gt7000 -i 29 -u 2 -l -t

The device learns that it has now system code id #29 and that it is unit #2 and enters ON mode (e.q. the switch is turned on). If the switch is not connected to power for an extended period of time, it will loose its configuration and reset to the default id #2816 unit #0. QUIGG_GT7000 compatible switches with integrated dimmer require that you configure the quigg_screen protocol in addition to the quigg_gt7000 protocol. On the webgui you will get a separate button to dimm the device up and down.

Subsequently the switch unit #1 with system code id #2816 is turned off.
