How to detect which receiver protocol is receiving Temp

Ok

So on day 6 of Indigo

For an experiment I urned On EVERY Receiver Protocol on the RFXCOM

A nice surprise was that it picked up the two TFA Temperature sensors (although reporting +40C than the actual temperature )

Both sensors report every 50 odd seconds.

I am trying to detect which Protocol the RFXCOM is picking these sensors up on - I cant see anything in the Log except-

RFXCOM Debug processing: 8 80 7 15 183 0 2 107 121 (08 50 07 0F B7 00 02 6B 79)

I can't see which protocol this is using.

I have doing some tests of elimination,

It took about 10 minutes it is coming in on the Viking Protocol

Is there a quicker way than suck and see?

Re: How to detect which receiver protocol is receiving Temp

If you have a Windows system run RFXmngr which will display:
Code: Select all
Packettype    = TEMP
subtype       = TEMP7 - Viking 02811, Proove TSS330,311346
Sequence nbr  = 15
ID            = 46848
Temperature   = 61,9 °C
Signal level  = 7  -64dBm
Battery       = OK

Thanks that is useful.

I try not to use Windows :-)

Do know how to correct the temperature which is coming out 40C higher?

Thanks

Re: How to detect which receiver protocol is receiving Temp

What is the TFA sensor type?

Do you use the latest firmware in the RFXtrx433E?

Good questions,

Tra 30.3163
RFXCOM 250

I see there are some updates 251 and 1001

I'll need to dig out a Windows machine

Ok all updated, temp sensors still reporting 40C over actual temperature

Re: How to detect which receiver protocol is receiving Temp

I'm sorry, this could not be solved in the firmware because other sensors using the same RF protocol report a correct value and it is not possible to detect the sensor type.
Please request Robert to add a temperature correction value to the plug-in.

Re: How to detect which receiver protocol is receiving Temp

I am in my first week with Indigo.

Is there anyway I could correct with a script?

Not sure how to get these reported Temps as a variable.

Just got a load of books on Python, starting to read up on it.

You can set up a trigger on device state changed (RFX device: temperature sensor) and have the action be Device actions Insert device state into variable. And if you don't want to write scripts yourself, there is a new plugin that has just been released

That is supposed to let you set up any offset and multiplier you like between the input device state and the outpur variable, although I haven't tried to use it yet,

Many many thanks.

Much appreciated.
