Hello and welcome to the forum.

I was wondering if your HAI control panel supports the W800RF32 X10 RF Receiver?

Here is the interface:

There are many of us DIYers that use these.

John,

I have not tested the W800RF32 specifically, but it looks like it simply sends a string of ASCII characters when it receives an X-10 RF transmission. It should work fine connected to one of our serial ports set to the Pro-Link protocol. Pro-Link simple matches received ASCII strings with preprogrammed strings in the controller. When a match if found, the controller can be programmed to initiate any automation action.

I honestly wish it was so easy. The W800RF32 protocol is here, in all of its spartan glory, and it involves reversing/swapping/masking bits before one can make any sense of the received data.

If anyone knows where I can find source code for a WGL800RF32 driver, please post a link. I know of one written in Perl for MisterHouse but transcoding Perl to C# is no joy.

Yes its a bit more complicated. The W800 supports the DS10a security devices as well and they are handled differently than a plain X10 device.

John,

We'll have to get one of these and check it out. From the limited protocol information it isn't clear exactly what is sent when a transmission is received. I looked at the CocoonTech example of using the W800RF32 with an M1 system, and it looked like they were just matching text strings. Perhaps the M1XSP was doing some preprocessing before sending the text string to the M1.

Regardless, for now I would have to say that we don't directly support the W800RF32 but will look at adding support in a future firmware release.
