Library and CLI tools for interacting with RFlink 433MHz transceiver.

Project description

Library and CLI tools for interacting with RFlink 433MHz transceiver.


  • Python 3.4 (or higher)


This package is created as a library for the Home assistant Rflink component implementation. A CLI has been created mainly for debugging purposes but may be extended in the future for more real-world application if needed.


$ pip install rflink


$ rflink -h
Command line interface for rflink library.

  rflink [-v | -vv] [options]
  rflink [-v | -vv] [options] [--repeat <repeat>] (on | off | allon | alloff) <id>
  rflink (-h | --help)
  rflink --version

  -p --port=<port>   Serial port to connect to [default: /dev/ttyACM0],
                       or TCP port in TCP mode.
  --baud=<baud>      Serial baud rate [default: 57600].
  --host=<host>      TCP mode, connect to host instead of serial port.
  --repeat=<repeat>  How often to repeat a command [default: 1].
  -m=<handling>      How to handle incoming packets [default: event].
  --ignore=<ignore>  List of device ids to ignore, end with * to match wildcard.
  -h --help          Show this screen.
  -v                 Increase verbosity
  --version          Show version.

Intercept and display Rflink packets:

$ rflink
rflink                           Nodo RadioFrequencyLink RFLink Gateway V1.1 R45
newkaku_00000001_4               off
newkaku_00000001_3               on
alectov1_0334_temp               7.4 °C
alectov1_0334_bat                low
alectov1_0334_hum                26 %

Turn a device on or off:

$ rflink on newkaku_0000_1
$ rflink off newkaku_0000_1

Use of TCP mode instead of serial port (eg: ESP8266 serial bridge):

$ rflink --host --port 1234

Debug logging is shown in verbose mode for debugging:
