VirtualWire Library for 315/433 MHz Transmitter-receiver
« on: December 30, 2013, 04:54:01 pm »
I found a 315Mhz transmitter and receiver lying around tried it to get it working with the digix

And after installing the library download this and copy it over the file founded in the library

http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?PHPSESSID=809nu9ovjrdi7qedhrd1c245u3&action=dlattach;topic=150941.0;attach=39662

Worked perfectly!  ;D

I'm trying to replicate your success with a 315MHz / 433MHz transmitter / receiver module that I picked up here:

http://dx.com/p/433mhz-rf-transmitter-module-receiver-module-link-kit-for-arduino-arm-mcu-wl-green-220194#.UwwHX_RdV8M

I have not had any success in using the module and would appreciate if you could share with me your setup and how you are using/testing your module to verify that it is working as expected. Though I am an intermediate user, I feel that no detail is trivial enough as I am not seeing any response in my serial monitor when testing my receiver module. As an FYI, I am trying to use the receiver RF module with the DigiX (without the transmitter) and am simply using the "receiver" sketch to try to "listen" to RF data from RF remotes, garage door openers, and 433MHz Ambient Weather stations that send data every 30 sec. Link below:

Are you able to use your receiver to listen to other RF signals (not using the transmitter)? Has anyone been able to do this? I am starting to think that my receiver is broken. >:( I would ideally like to decode the weather station signal on the DigiX, but as a first step I need to see the signal.

Thanks for any help!

I should mention that I did follow your suggestion on installing the VirtualWire library on the platform for the DigiX and that worked perfectly and enabled the "receiver" code to compile and upload flawlessly. Thanx
