This is my first contribution to this forum.


I managed to control RF switches with the N+2. There have been only samples available for Arduino, that's why I ported them to C#. The main problem was, that the RC switches are expecing pulses with a length of 250s, which cannot be done with Thread.Sleep in NetMF.


Therefore I wrote a loop using the ticks of the prcessor and running in a hih priorized thread. This works well, but blocks the processor. To acheave this, I also found a way using SPI to produce the necessary pulses.


Currently I only have tested it with RF switches from InterTechno using the EasyHome codes. Several other codes are only adopted from the Arduino library but not yet tested with real RF switches.


The EasyHome codes are allowing not only switching but also dimming. Since I do not have dimmable switches, I didn't implement these codes yet.


If someone is interested in this library, please contact me in a private mail. I will give you the sources with the wish of any feedback. Until it s not stable tested I will not publish this library somewhere else.

I am sure MANY people are interested in how you did this.

A quick tutorial, perhaps posted on Porject showcase is sure to help many people.


I would be the first person reading this, as I have a similar project on the go - but am nowhere near getting it up and running yet.

As I wrote, I can share my library. But since it is only tested with one type of devices (code is implemented for a bunch) I will not publish the sources. In the past I've got a lot of negative responces in such cases.


If someone is interested in the sources, pm me.
