How to detect if a Remote Switch is set to ON or OFF

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

have build an app (based on the JavaScript API) using the remote switch bricklet to switch devices ON/OFF.

When starting the App, would like to determine the state of a remote switch to be able to set the initial state of the switches in the app.

 

Question: Is there a (JavaScript) function available? like getRemoteSwitchState resulting in on or off?

 

Appreciated,

Rob

Hi Rob,

 

there's no such function as it is not possible to determine the state of the remote switch  :(

These "standard" remote switches are just able to receive signals, but they cannot send any signal.

You can send the desired initial state the plug and then just hope that the plug received it.

Will watch any developments regarding remote switches which are able to sent their switch state.

Hi Rob,

 

you may use switches using e.g. "Z-Wave" technology. Works fine with a Raspberry Pi and the "Razberry"-extension.
