Cheap 433Mhz single channel LED strip controller from eBay?

Postby ThinkPad » Mon Apr 27, 2015 7:09 pm

I am looking for a cheap 433Mhz dimmer for my LED-strip (single color, warmwhite).
Basically the ACM-LV24 from KaKu does what i want.

However, i am a big fan of shopping in China, and found this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-RF-Wireless ... 1316838983 a LOT cheaper :lol:

Does anyone have experience with a dimmer like that, in combination with RFXCOM and Domoticz?
According to the specs it is 433.92Mhz. It also has 10 dimming levels (apart from the 100%, 50%, 25% buttons), which is sufficient for me.

Got this PM from b_weijenberg:
Hi,

It looks a lot similar to this one i tested:
http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/mini-dimmer- ... ximum.html

But i have often seen that our Chinese friends change the protocol every now and then, so it is not sure if yours is gonna work.
Downside is also that the dimmer has no on/off, but uses a toggle.

And as far as i know it is not yet implemented in Domoticz.

I also asked b_weijenberg if it isn't already supported by the RFXCOM (Lighting4 or something?) and he said:
It is Lighting5 - MDREMOTE and i don't think you can use that already in Domoticz.
Besides that you also need a whole range of buttons with that device then. Have look in RFXmngr when you choose MDREMOTE, you will see which commands you can use.


I now also see there already is a topic about this, where b_weijenberg has also posted: http://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic ... =682#p3481
