RFP1000: one USB key, several innovations!

Jam’Alert

95% of smart home hubs or wireless alarm systems in Europe operate on the 433 or 868 Mhz frequency bands. These frequency bands can be scrambled using “Jammers” that make your system inoperative.

The JAM’ALERT function detects jamming attempts of your installation on all protocols operating on the 433 and 868 Mhz frequency bands (Z-wave, Enocean, X10, X2D, RTS, all proprietary protocols, etc.). The RFP1000 driver is used to set an alert threshold that will be used by your home automation system* to notify a jamming attempt.

This feature is an excellent complement to existing surveillance, alarm or home automation systems that do not have jamming detection. It is available from version 1.25 of the firmware and 1.6 of the configuration software.

* The JAM’ALERT function is only accessible with Smarthome hubs compatible with the RFP1000. Ask your installer or the manufacturer of your smart home hub.

Gateway

Bring to your Smart Home hub proprietary protocols in 433 and 868Mhz.

​RFP1000 is bidirectional and transmits and receives simultaneously 433 MHz and 868 MHz radio frequencies.

RFP1000 connects via USB to the main home automation box and multiplies their abilities to interact with their environment.
RFP1000 has the most sophisticated mechanisms to maximize performance:
– OSD (One Stage Decoder)
– LBT (Listen Before Talk)
– High noise immunity by filters SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave)

Additional Features

Parrot

RFP1000 has other resources to handle protocols that are unknown to him.

RFP1000 knows how to cooperate with the open source community through its interface compatible RFLINK.

RFP1000 saves the unknown frames radios and provides the software for analysis RFLINK box in the home automation.
In addition, RFP1000 can transmit radio frames concocted by the RFLINK software.

If you teach him, PARROT will memorise with great precision the radio frequencies 433MHz and 868Mhz.
PARROT just needs to listen, its understanding is phonetic.

Subsequently, it will be able to recognize in real time when they appear on the air, all useful information for home automation box and will transmit them back to the box Automation opportunely.

PARROT fits the unknown

Repeater

Automation transmissions are subject to scope issue. This is due to phenomenon called “fading”, that can occur even in a relative proximity between the transmitter and receiver signal, and in intrinsic signal attenuation with distance.

RFP1000 plugs into a 220V-USB power supply mode “stand-alone” will ensure repeater function, which will re-amplify the signal by significantly reducing the probability of fading.

The range is therefore greatly increased and radiofrequency exchanges with improved reliability.

Repetition is smart:
– The frames are recognized and reshaped,
– RFP1000 expect the best moment to retransmit the signal to prevent radio frequency collision.

Transcoder

The TRANSCODER function enables the repeater to convert on the fly frames of a protocol to another protocol output, including those stored by PARROT.

A single remote control with numerous channels can replace several remote controls from other manufacturers with fewer channels.

A locked Automation box (without USB port) may extend the scope of its protocols covered.

A new alarm, previously unreachable, can be take into account.

Everyone wins in connectivity.
