RAKO Protocol Sniffer Wiring

Following on from the previous post¬†where I described the RAKO wireless protocol, I’ve created a sniffer that listens for RAKO messages and dumps them to a serial terminal. The sniffer was created simply by connecting an RRFQ1 receiver module to an Arduino as shown in the image above and uploading the sketch which can be downloaded from here.

The output on the serial terminal looks like this:

   Type: COMMAND
  House: 5
   Room: 4
Channel: 1
Command: 12: SET-LEVEL
   Type: DATA
  House: 5
   Data: 255
Address: 0: UNKNOWN

    I’ve tried without success to get this to work, following your instructions. I’m particularly keen to read Rako commands, as this would allow me to dispense with the Rako controllers in favour of an Arduino-based controller. Assuming that I have followed your instructions correctly, are there any other gotchas you might know of?

    There shouldn’t be much that can go wrong. Do you get any output at all on the serial terminal? Does it print “Ready” when the Arduino is reset?
    If you get the “Ready” message, then do you get any output at all when pressing buttons on a controller?
