  2. Automation/IR/RS232 Code Database

    Automation/IR/RS232 Code Database

    When programming home Automation or universal remote control gear, you may use the following database of common IR / Pronto / HEX, TCP / IP / UDP and Serial RS232C Control commands for assistance. Keep in mind that some products may not have Discrete On/Off commands available. In some cases however, a slightly-less-reliable On/off command can be emulated with Macro's if a discrete on (often the play command) is at least available. 

    Use of the following codes are at your own risk. Jay Vee Technologies takes no responsibility for any losses or damages caused by these commands (which includes surges caused by using power toggle commands in large circuits, codes which do not work consistently, codes which brick devices or home automation commands which bypass hardware interlocks for blind/fan controllers). This page is offered as a free service, and Jay Vee Technologies is not obliged to provide free technical assistance for implementation / interpretation of these code-sets. 

    To request code removal / addition of new codes to this list, please contact Jay Vee Technologies.

  6. Understanding Wireless Frequencies (900mhz vs 2.4ghz vs 5.8ghz)

    Understanding Wireless Frequencies (900mhz vs 2.4ghz vs 5.8ghz)

    In Australia, there are 3 readily available WiFi frequencies available for public WiFi Networks and long range Point-To-Point (PTP) / Multipoint-To-Point (MPTP) links. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. 

    900mhz is rarely used in consumer equipment and is normally used for long distance links. It has the best signal penetration (due to its long wave length), but generally offers the least bandwidth. Its often the best choice for long distance links which have trees blocking the beam (ie, it works the best for non-line of sight).

    2.4Ghz is the most common Wireless Frequency, and is commonplace in almost all consumer equipment, including mobile phones, laptops and Smart TV's. Many wireless devices such as Wireless balun's and phones also share this frequency. Microwave ovens can also introduce intermittent interference. In fact, recently, the Parkes Radio Telescope determined that their own Microwave was a source of intermittant interference when listening to space.

    5GHZ Wireless is a lessor used, but common wireless frequency. Most WiFi protocols are moving towards 5GHZ due to the larger amount of unique channels available, which allows more networks to operate without interfering. Common WiFi protocols include 802.11a (54mbps), 802.11n (150mbps+) and 802.11ac (1000mbps+).
