Sniffing remote codes with Tellstick

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

I have a bunch of no-name remote switches I'd like to control with my Tellstick, but none of the presets work.

Is there a way to have the Tellstick listen to traffic and learn the codes from the remote?

TellStick cannot receive any signals and therefore cannot learn any codes.

Our upcoming product TellStick Duo can listen to signals, and learn remote codes, but only codes from known protocols.

Ok.

Is there a way to programmatically go through every preset in the UI or any other way to try to brute force the signal? Going through all the preset combinations manually is tedious at best :)

Going through all codes could take months, depending on the protocol. If it's only code switch receivers, it would of course only take minutes, but the problem remains that we will never know which code was the correct one, unless someone observes when the receivers are turned on, and notes which code was sent at that moment.

Because of this we don't have built any programs or GUI for this function.
