View Full Version : Ethernet connected RF receivers and RF transmitters

Put your RF receivers and RF transmitter now on the optimum location for receiving all sensors in your property. No longer problems with RF noise radiated by the PC which makes the receiver now more sensitive.
If the Ethernet interface is connected to the Internet it enables you to add remote locations like your holiday home to your Home Automation system or control and check the home of your grandmother.

Because Girder runs on a Windows platform and has interfacing software for the W800RF receiver it can use the RFXCOM Ethernet interface without any modification thanks to the CPR (COM Port Redirector) software. This CPR software emulates a standard COM port in Windows.
Of course, it is also possible to use TCP/IP communication on any platform if the software supports direct TCP/IP communication.

In addition to the RFXCOM proprietary protocol, all RFXCOM receivers have a W800RF compatible receiving mode. The RFXCOM receivers translate all received non-X10 RF packets (like Visonic, SecureLinc, KlikOn-KlikOff, Domia Lite) to an equivalent X10 packet. This makes it possible to process those non-X10 sensors by Girder without any modification.

There are 4 different types of RFXCOM Ethernet interfaces.
1. LAN with 1 COM port and connections for 1 or 2 receivers OR 1 transmitter,
2. WLAN with 2 COM ports and connections for 1 or 2 receivers AND 1 transmitter,
3. LAN with 2 COM ports and connections for 1 or 2 receivers AND 1 transmitter,
4. WLAN+LAN with 2 COM ports and connections for 1 or 2 receivers AND 1 transmitter.

See http://www.rfxcom.com/receivers.htm for detailed information.

I need help to complete the RFXCOM Quick Start Guide for Girder.
Is there any Girder user with an RFXCOM USB or Ethernet connected receiver or transmitter that is able to complete this document?


Thanks in advance, Bert
