Help needed with decoding 433 Mhz signal
I took a look at https://github.com/athombv/node-homey-433/blob/master/HOWTO_CREATE_SIGNAL.md and got lost quite early.
You define words by starting at the first value after the start of frame and assign all values to a word of your wanted length until there are not enough values left to create a word. For instance if we use
sof = [255, 400]for the example data above and start with a word length of 2 we would get the words
[1100, 111]. If we would use a word length of 3 we would get the words
[110, 1002, 1100],
[111, 108, 1010],
[109, 1102, 112]which are more words and represent less data.
This will probably be enough guidance for tech-savvy devs, but for John Joe this is describing rocket science. However, Athom does require an app for every device, so it would be nice if the tutorial would not require too much pre-existing knowledge about signal handling.
Could somebody guide me though it using the data attached? Would be nice if I could push an app to the store to support this motion detector available at your local hardware store
