AVATTO S06 IR gateway compatible with OpenMQTTGateway

For this new post we will make compatible with OpenMQTTGateway; the BAKEEY IR remote on bangood or AVATTO S06 on Aliexpress (the links are affiliated).


From this discussion on Home Assistant forum I have deducted that the AVATTO gateways may be uploaded with a new firmware, so I bought 2 of them. Thanks to their pinout informations I was able to quickly get this device up and running with OMG.

Overview

The S06 is a compact IR bridge with FCC, CE and RoHS marks,you can find it for less than 15$. Here is some photos:





Disassembly

It is not so easy to open, you will need a thin plate, insert it on the junction between the two box parts and do a lever effect at several locations.



We can see inside that the micro controller is a TYWE3S, the FCC datasheet  give us plenty of information:

  • ESP8266

  • 1mb flash

  • 50K RAM

So we may be able to flash it with an FTDI and upload OMG.


Here is the LED setup:


It has 7 IR emitters LED, one receiver and one blue LED.

the IR LED are bigger compared to my other AVATTO round gateway.


Upload OpenMQTTGateway.

Set your FTDI to 3.3V

Connect an FTDI following this wiring to the board:


  • BOARD GND - FTDI GND

  • BOARD RX - FTDI TX

  • BOARD TX - FTDI RX

  • BOARD 3.3V- FTDI VCC

  • BOARD IO0 - BOARD GND

Once done you should have something like that:

  1. Connect the FTDI to your computer

  2. Open your arduino IDE or platformio

  3. With platformio  type the following command:  platformio run --target erase

  4. With the arduino IDE :Erase flash "All flash content"  & DOUT mode

  5. And now you can flash it with OpenMQTTGateway

The board is an ESP8266 1MB, here is the configuration used with PIO in the platformio.ini file:



 

[env:avatto-ir]

platform = ${com.esp8266_platform}

board = esp01_1m

lib_deps =

  ${com-esp.lib_deps}

  ${libraries.irremoteesp}

  ${libraries.esp8266_mdns}

build_flags

  ${com-esp.build_flags}

  '-DZgatewayIR="IR"'

  '-DTRIGGER_GPIO=13'

  '-Dled_send=4'

  '-DIR_EMITTER_GPIO=14'

  '-DIR_RECEIVER_GPIO=5'

  '-DGateway_Name="OpenMQTTGateway_AVATTO_IR"'

 


The IR receiver use the GPIO5,

the IR emitters is on GPIO14, 

the blue LED on GPIO4

the reset button on GPIO13.


Once flashed you can setup your credentials with your smartphone, click one save and you should see the gateway coming on your broker.


You can now send and receive IR signals and integrate the board with your favorite automation controller!



And now you should be able to control your IR devices with a powerful board.

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:


Here is how i…
