Note: Gateways can be used separately. Follow this Link for a quick overview about all Modules and possible Combinations.

Tested Modules for the RF Addon:

Module Purpose Where to Buy (examples)
XD RF 5V 433Mhz Receiver -
FS1000A 433Mhz Transmitter -
  • or better alternative superheterodyne STX882 & SRX882

Hardware setup:

Module Pin NodeMCU / ESP8266 RX Pin NodeMCU / ESP8266 TX Pin
RF Receive Module data pin D2 or D3 or D1 -
RF Send Module data pin - RX

If the gateway works only when serial monitor is connected don't use D3 use D2 instead (gpio 4) and modify config_RF.h accordingly.

Iwith SRX882 some users reported that D3 is not working use D1 instead in this case and modify config_RF.h accordingly.
