codesend for RPi3 for use with HomeAssistant

Binary for sending 433MHz codes with HomeAssistant on the RPi3 reliably.

Problem

The right HomeAssistant component for this is actually rpi-rf. But there seems to be some timing problems so the requested pulselength is maybe not reached. So there are maybe sometimes missing switch actions.

# configuration.yaml
switch:
  - platform: rpi_rf
    gpio: 17
    switches:
      switch_a:
        code_on: 123456
        code_off: 456789
        protocol: 4

Solution

You can use the command_line component and the codesend binary instead. The switch actions are much more reliable with this solution. Additionally you can use the friendly_name parameter which is not present with rpi-rf.

# configuration.yaml
switch:
  - platform: command_line
    switches:
      switch_a:
        friendly_name: Schwibbogen Küche
        command_on: /config/bin/codesend 123456 4
        command_off: /config/bin/codesend 456789 4

HowTo

Download the binary file and put it where you want. I prefere the configuration folder so I have no problems with an update of my docker container. Thats it!
