SONOFF DW1 door sensor (one state)


This door/window sensor is powered with a 12V 23A battery and send one signal when opened.



The protocol used is compatible with these different gateways: 

  • ZgatewayRF (ESP32 or ESP8266 with an RF receiver)
  • ZgatewaySRFB (Sonoff RF Bridge)
  • ZgatewayPilight (coming with WDS07 integration)
Here is the official link:



Now if we take a look to the power consumption of this sensor we can see that:
  • When sending signal 10mA during around 2s
  • Sleep current less than 2uA continuously

Duration estimation
See relative comparison into the list of compatible devices 1
It should last more than 1 year.

Some pictures:


Power consumption when no action


Disassembly


We can see that there is some key (1,2,3 & 4) in the PCB, maybe this can be soldered to change the code (I didn’t tested it).

You will notice that the antenna is integrated into the PCB.

I'm not a fan of the 12v23A or 27A batteries but the power consumption when sleeping is the best from all the window/door sensor I have tested.

On the functionality side the sensor is lacking a code for close state.

If you want to use it as alarm detection only (not verifying if your door is close or open) this sensor can be interesting if not you should go for a GS-WDS07 or a the new DIGOO

433toMQTTto433 - Bidirectional ESP8266 NodeMCU gateway between RF 433Mhz signal and MQTT

The goal  is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, It enables to:
receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal 
It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets) with software like openhab.

List of compatible sensors here

The interest of putting this gateway to an ESP8266 and not on a raspberry pi is to be able to manage security actions at gateway level (power on a siren, cut power to certain devices) following RF data received by sensors without being dependent to the PI for security related actions.

Infrared IR, 433mhz and MQTT on ESP8266 bidirectional gateway OpenMQTTGateway

Following discussions on the home assistant forum people gave me the idea to add Infrared communication to the 433mhz gateway. 

The goal is to act as a gateway between 433Mhz sensors, infrared remote controls and a MQTT broker or between the MQTT broker and 433Mhz actuators, infrared devices, It enables to:
receive MQTT data from a topic and send RF 433Mhz signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received 433Mhz signal receive MQTT data from a topic and send infrared signal corresponding to the received MQTT data publish MQTT data to a different topic related to received infrared signal 
It can be an interesting part in an home automation system so as to interface sensors and actuators (wall sockets), your tv, home cinema, hifi ... with software like openhab or home assistant.

Adding infrared emitter to SONOFF RF BRIDGE

With the add of  SONOFF RF Bridge  to the OpenMQTTGateway compatibility list we were able to send and receive 433mhz by MQTT. 
The interesting thing with OpenMQTTGateway is the ability to have on one board several gateways (RF, IR, BLE and more to come ;-). 

The last versions of SONOFF RF BRIDGE as two IO free pins, why not using these pins to add a new gateway to this little cheap device and control more devices.



If we follow the interest of the different gateways you are more interested on RF and after comes IR infrared.

My choice came in this case to add an infrared emitter to the RF Bridge, with this gateway we are adding the capacity of controlling TV, DVD, hifi...

On the hardware side, I followed the same schematic for IR setup with ESP8266 with just a little add a protection resistor of 1K for the IR led.
The other resistor is connected between the transistor base and IO5 of the RF Bridge instead of D0.
The IR led is powered by the 3,3V of the Sonoff RF Bridge.

The schema:
