Title: FYI: Interfacing Wireless Remote Control Sensor PT2262 / 2272 SC2272
Post by: celem on Jul 08, 2012, 06:21 pm
Lately I have been experimenting with wireless sensors that use the PT2262/2272 ( integrated circuits. These chips are common in inexpensive, Chinese manufactured security alarm sensors, such as PIR Motion Detectors, door-open sensors, smoke alarms, keychain-fob remote controls, etc. Just seach eBay with "wireless alarm sensor My99" and you'll see a slew of what I am talking about.

I recently obtained, for about $7US e/w delivery, a 433MHz receiver e/w SC2272-T4 decoder and an associated keychain fob wireless remote control with four data buttons. I realize that the 2262/2272 protocol can be simulated in code (see the RC-SWITCH ( project) but I prefer that the protocol be in hardware so as to limit code-bloat, although I did test RC-SWITCH (see bottom of post). I don't really like that the SC2272-T4 in my unit is a toggle version. There are both Momentary and Latched versions of the same module, ironically,  available under the same name - R06A

You can see a YouTube video of my experiment with the 2272 wireless receiver and keychain fob at YouTube-Link (

If you are interested in more of the technical details of the 2262/2272 chipset, read my blog post titled "Wireless Remote Control PT2272 for Arduino (".

The same code can be used for any of the aforementioned 2262-based sensors.

The YouTube video polled the receiver's ports. The improved code below uses interrupts.

void loop()
dirty = 0; // clear interrupt occurance flag
lcd.setCursor (15,3);     // go to LCD col 15 of line 4
lcd.print(r06a_0 ? "HIGH": "LOW ");
lcd.setCursor (10,3);     // go to LCD col 10 of line 4
lcd.print(r06a_1 ? "HIGH": "LOW ");
lcd.setCursor (5,3);      // go to LCD col 5 of line 4
lcd.print(r06a_2 ? "HIGH": "LOW ");
lcd.setCursor (0,3);      // go to LCD col 0 of line 4
lcd.print(r06a_3 ? "HIGH": "LOW ");

I did test the RC-SWITCH software using a plain 433MHz receiver. I compiled the test code "ReceiveDemo_Advanced.pde" and when I press the keychain-fob's "A" key, the output is:

Decimal: 5227968 (24Bit) Binary: 010011111100010111000000 Tri-State: F01110FF1000 PulseLength: 451 microseconds Protocol: 1 (plus the raw data)

When I paste the raw data into Sui's RC-SWITCH visualization tool at ( the attached waveform in is the result. If you decode it you'll see that it matches "F01110FF1000?. Pressing the "B" key yields "F01110FF0100?, the "C" key "F01110FF0010? and the "D" key "F01110FF0001?. You can clearly see that the least significant digits are the data field with the "D" key being the least significant. The address field is "F01110FF" which matches the solder pads on my key-chain fob used for the tests.
