433Mhz AM Signal

Post by alexturner » Tue May 05, 2020 1:22 pm

Hey there!

I'm trying to reverse engineer a fairly simple lighting system in which the lights have a prebuilt super-het receiver module in them and a simple IC. The 'on' and 'off' signals are as follows (attached). Any idea what the encoding is?

Hmm, that's an odd looking signal.

It doesn't seem to be PPM, morse or manchester, but the signal is clearly OOK. Maybe it's some sort of PWM (although the gaps are a bit tiny), but its difficult to tell from this data alone since you only got two samples, and they only differ in a single bit. Normally 433 MHz OOK signals have a preamble followed by some data like a device serial number and some commands. Do you happen to have another device from the same manufacturer and maybe record that signal to see how they differ?
