Configure the 433MHz radio remote control

There are the possibility to associate your radio remote control in two different way, see below Mode 1 and Mode 2.
It’s also possible associate more than a one buttons.

MODE 1
To couple the 433Mhz radio control to the Smart Switch Module it is necessary to quickly press the black button (on the Smart Switch Module) for three times.
At this point the LED light turns red and then press the button on the remote control that you want to associate.
In this mode, each time the button on the remote control is pressed, the output status (on the Smart Switch Module) is switched (ON mode, then OFF, then ON, etc.).

MODE 2
By pressing the black button quickly twice instead of three, the selected RF remote control button will function as a “button” and not a switch.
In this case the device will be switched on only while we hold down the associated button and it will turn off when we leave it.


The photo below shows the Smart Home Switch open.
On the top of the photo there is a cable (red & black) soldered in parallel to the black button of the Smart Home Switch.
This allow the possibility to use an external button for ON/OFF the Smart Home Switch.
Pay attention, if the connection is long is suggested to use a shielded cable.
