BBSB meets Arduino (Part 1) - updated.

In the first of several posts, here's a nifty little project that may help if you have radio signal range issues with your ByeByeStandby (BBSB) Online Controller. We have lots of thick brick walls at home, and the controller cant send messages to all our sockets:




I have to admit, this work has been 90% google and 10% coding - there are already libraries for Arduino on the net that can transmit BBSB/Domia's radio protocol.

This project will re-transmit the 433.92mhz Domia/BBSB signals emitted by the BBSB Online controller v2 on your local network.

Build instructions are here, along with source code Arduino sketch here. See pdf for further details.

If you have comments or questions please post to the BBSB Forum here.

Further enhancements are in the works, stay tuned for the next part - a two-way repeater.

15/06/09: Updated to fix a bug already! - Device code support 1-16 (in theory , but untested)

Good work Mart. I look forward to following (and maybe even building) this and your future posts!

Excellent turnaround on the "bugfix" - thank you!

It may also be worth noting that this can be used as a repeater for the BBS Controller in Harmony mode too.
