Is this hardware supported?

Post by mgiammarco » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hello,
I need to buy some low cost hardware: sireless solar siren and wireless perimeter sensors like these:

http://www.ebay.it/itm/SIRENA-WIRELESS- ... Sw-zxWoJUk
https://www.casasicura.it/sirene-antifu ... olare.html
https://www.casasicura.it/barriere-este ... oC2_vw_wcB

I see that they transmit wireless with 434 and 868 frequencies but I do not know the transmission protocol they use.
Can I use them with your receiver?
Have you some better products to suggest me (available in Italy)?

Thanks,
Mario

Impossible to know. I haven't seen or heard of any alarm sirens that are compatible with the Tellstick range of products.
Here is a list of compatible and tested devices that works with Tellstick: http://www.telldus.com/products/compability

For best compatibility you should look for Z-wave products, but then you need to use the Tellstick ZNet.

Thanks for reply.

Let's forget the siren for now, I am more interested in wireless solar barriers like these:

http://www.ebay.it/itm/SISTEMA-ALLARME- ... xyu4dRr3hb

They are china made products that use 433 frequency and are compatible with all brands of cheap alarm systems.
So I guess their protocol is common.
I do not want a reply like "yes they are supported 100%" but I am asking for a reply like: "if you learn their code a software update can enable them".

Thanks again,
Mario

Normally burglar alarm has a little bit more complicated protocol between sensor and alarm panel, just to ensure a more secure radio link.
But, if you can get some pictures from printed circuit board/chip type etc of the solar barriers you might get a clue to if the will work or not.
In this link you can see some example of alarm products from Ebay that have been tested.

You should not expect a software update from Telldus in order to support these products.

By the way, what Tellstick product(s) do you have and is it possible to buy Tellstick in Italy?
