I'm trying to get the Sonoff Bridge to learn remote codes from this remote APA3-1500R. This remote is operating at 433.92MHz
The bridge goes into learning mode, I hear a beep and the red led is flashing. However, I try many times to learn different buttons, but it always fails after one minute with a timeout error.
This way the bridge is useless to me. I'm following the instructions closely. Is there a way to fix this? Can you release a firmware update?
I ordered a key FOB as suggested by Leif Funder to program my 433.92 MHz remotes and then to program the 433 RF Bridge. The new key FOBs cannot be programmed with 433.92 MHz remotes. What I wanted to do was use the bridge to open two sliding gates via my SmartPhone which I can open with my 433.92 MHz remotes. I need to find other alternatives and working on that. The 433 RF Bridge is a dud.
Eu tentei de tudo para fazer esse Bridge 433 funcionasse. NÃO TEVE JEITO! A solução para meu portão deslizante foi ---- Canal de Inching / modo de travamento automático Wi-Fi Wireless Switch 5V / 12V IM160426001 ---- Portão controlado com 433.92 MHZ a placa do meu motor tem uma entrada para botoeira (contato manual). Essa placa tem uma configuração que permite ligar e desligar em segundos.
Thanks Roberto Santa Anna, I am using similar solution to operate my gate openers. Gate control board has two contacts which when shorted will operate the gate. So, my plan is to use a Smart WiFi based "Normally Open" contact relay switch to control via my Smartohone and Alexa. I plan to order the following board from Alibaba and use it. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Wifi-Relay-Switch-Module-Low-Power-Jog-Mode-AC-220V-Remote-Control-Smart-Home/32820434124.html?shortkey=2a6jIFNF&addresstype=600
Just responding to:
According to this (http://sparkfires.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Slim-26-46-Maxitrol-GV60-Installation-and-Operating-Instructions.pdf) that remote looks pretty much exactly the same as the one I have for my "Heat and Glo" fireplace (although mine is white rather than black). It is also apparently 433.92 MHz for Europe and 315 MHz for U.S. As you're quoting pounds I assume you have the european model running at 433.92 - same as mine in Australia.
Anyhow, I tried to record the remote using the sonoff bridge but eventually gave up. I instead got a Broadlink RM Pro and it works fine. My Broadlink only knows 433, and I have another 315 remote I'd like to be able to control so I'm trying to hunt down the version that does both.
Again, I am not knocking the Sonoff bridge - it looks to be well built, the thing to be aware of is that the main purpose for it is to control Sonoff devices. My mistake was to simply assume it would be able to control *any* 433mhz device, but it has not been coded to do that. I suspect that someone may be able to create new firmware to enable it to learn a wider range of controls, but until that happens mine is in a drawer.
Same problem here. Won't link with any remote. I think Nate Bhadriraju is right. We're trying to do something with a device that it is not meant to do, namely use it as a bridge between a non sonoff device and a mobile phone using a non sonoff remote.
Could anyone confirm if they have actually managed to confige the sonoff RF bridge in the configuration I describe, namely as a purely standalone device without any other sonoff devices?
Also are there any other devices on the market that act as an RF bridge other than the Broadlink?
Finally, there seems to be different types of sonoff bridges. I have identified two (see attachment), namely the sonoff black box which has 4 round corners and the sonff bridge with 2 bezzled corners and 2 straight corners (I have the later). Has anyone noticed a difference in configuration depending on which device they are using?
Same issue here, can't get 433 remotes to work.
