I searched for this topic both on Google and on this forum with no pertinent results, so please if you find it to be a duplicate question just post the appropriate link so that I can find a way around this problem.
About the issue:
I recently bought two pieces of hardware:
- General 4Channel Rf Remote (see below, otherwise look at the attachments)
- Rf Receiver - Model: SYN470R RXB12 / 433Mhz (again, see below or into the attachments)
You can find other info by these links:
What I want to do is coupling those two in order to perform some tasks I'll later define in my project. In fact, the remote will have to command a relay switch in order to operate some light bulbs, but that is not the point of my question as my concern is:
how can I reprogram remote RF signal to custom codes in order to use them instead of preprogrammed ones?
For better understanding, I link below a video description on how this little remote works when used barely as a duplicator:
Code reprogramming would be the first thing to do if the remote came without any code on it! Now, my brand new remote seems to have some codes in it already (led blinking is continuous instead of just blinking once), and I found some tutorials on how to decode them, so that I can use with the receiver module. But what if I wanted to give it new ones?
The reason why I want to achieve that, is because I don't know if they sell them with the same code or if every channel on every remote sends its unique one, so I want to avoid other remotes of the same kind to interfere with my project. That could be even dangerous, depending on the type of project one wants to develop.
So, is there a way I can reprogram my remote to send proper (possibly unique) codes and, if yes:
- How could I?
- Which ones should I decide to use? Is there some sort of random code generation tool I could employ to set up my remote?
Sorry if my question seems too general and confuse, but I'm still new to RF technology and I'm trying to do my first project basing on that. And please tell me if you need additional info. Thanks in advance to those who will try to help.
