Hi All!

For a project I tried to figure out something new usig arduino. So I tried integrating an RC plug ability in my project.
I Found a link for using these cheap RC power plugs with arduino. Had some lying around and bought a 433MHz transmitter.

Now as a noob in electronics AND communication protocols ( seriously I know 0% of this ) I just can't get the communication between the arduino and the plugs right..

This is the link including the library and some information
https://code.google.com/p/rc-switch/

And this is the link giving some information about my outlets  (it's the chacon type I have)
http://linux-utils.blogspot.be/2011/08/remote-outlets-avidsen-and-chacon.html

It is maybe a very open question, but I don't know anything about all this stuff, my arduino skills are also very basic.. so, help would be much appreciated!

can someone help me, by tweaking the given programs a little bit?

thanks in advance!


also, this is the transmitter I am using :

The RC-Switch has an example sketch to detect the protocol and the timing and the identifier for the used remote switches.
You should first use a receiver and receive the communication.
