 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi everyone!
I have been trying to get my RF Receiver(Velleman RX433N) to work with my Arduino Micro for a while but I haven't even been able to get a single signal from my remote control(Velleman VM130T).

I have been testing a ton of different libraries and sketches, for example VirtualWire.h and RcSwitch.h. but I haven't got any of them to work. I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction here.

Microcontroller: Arduino UNO and Micro, but the Micro must be used to fit in my final circuit.

From the Vellaman Web Site it says
The Transmitter is claimed to be compatable with the following devices.


    K8057: 2-CHANNEL RF REMOTE RECEIVER WITH RANDOM CODE
    VM109: 2-CHANNEL RF REMOTE CONTROL SET
    VM130: 2-CHANNEL RF REMOTE CONTROL SET
    K8009: MULTIFUNCTIONAL CLOCK
    K8022: REMOTE CONTROLLED PASSIVE PREAMP
    VM151: RGB LED EFFECT GENERATOR WITH RF REMOTE CONTROL
    VM152: LED DIMMER WITH RF REMOTE CONTROL
    VM162: RGB LED DIMMER AND COLOR SELECTOR WITH RF REMOTE

You will need one of those to correctly decode the transmitters signal, or you will need to hack
the code format the transmitter uses, if you want the Arduino to be able to decode it.
It sounds like the transmitting module is using some kind of proprietary data format.

You can sniff the date output of the receiver and try to decode it.
Maybe the protocol of the transmitter is not supported by the libraries you have tried.

Ok, but if I can sniff a signal to decode later I must be able to get two different signals from Button 1 and Button 2 and if I save those then I should be able to trigger a function without decoding?

The problem is that I'm not very sure of what I will have to do when it comes to the sniffing either.

Is there someone that got a RX433N or similar model out there and have got it to work?
I would really appreciate if someone could post a library, sketch or something!
