Protocol

This protocol sends 50 pulses like this

396 1188 396 1188 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 1188 396 13464

It has no header and the last 2 pulses are the footer. These are meant to identify the pulses as genuine, and the protocol also has some bit checks to filter false positives. We don’t use them for further processing. The next step is to transform this output into 12 groups of 4 pulses (and thereby dropping the footer pulses).

If we now look at carefully at these groups you can distinguish three types of groups:

  • 396 1188 396 1188
  • 1188 396 1188 396
  1. The first group is defined by a low 1th and low 3rd pulse pulse, hence we call it low.
  2. The second group has a high 1st and 3rd pulse, hence we call it high.

We then get the following output:

011100000000

Each (group) of numbers has a specific meaning:

  • ID: 1 till 3
  • State: 8 (state)
x 111 xxxx 0 xxx
  • The ID is defined as a binary number. To calculate the ID we subtract the binary represented decimal from 7. In this case the binary 111 is equal to the decimal 7. That means this code represents ID 0.
  • The State defines whether a devices needs to be turned On or Off

So this code represents:

  • SystemCode: 0
  • State: Off
