The rH-S4T module is designed to connect four monostable switches with potential free contacts. The module sends wirelessly information on each contact state (open/closed) to the server. Typical applications: control of lighting or lighting scene, control of shutters/blinds. Additionally, the module incorporates digital temperature sensor. The measurement of the ambient temperature is performed every 30 seconds, and the reading is sent to the server either after the temperature has changed or 5 minutes have passed since the last transmission. This way, the module is used for temperature control in a room.
Symbol in design and configuration software:
The rH-S4T module is represented by object that consists of four channels reading information about the state (on/off) of the connected contacts. Shorting or opening a contact changes the logic state at the corresponding output (1/0). Additionally, the object has tº output (displays the latest ambient temperature value).
Installation:
  • Insert an appropriate battery in accordance with the polarity shown and close the cover.
  • Connect the rH-S4T wires with contacts of four monostable switches (see the diagram above).
  • Mount the switches and module in installation box(es) located in suitable place(es).
  • Adjust the antenna wire parallel to one of the server antennas, as far as possible from the other wires.
  • Register the device in the system.
An example application:
The transmitter wirelessly provides logic states used e.g. to control power relays in the system.
In the diagram above, the four-channel F1104 transmitter determines the state of the four outputs of the 5-channel F2250 relay. The closing of the first contact switches on the the lamp no. 1, of the second - the lamp no. 2 etc. The opening of a contact switches off the corresponding lamp, so in this simple example the user should press the required button as long as needed. In order to switch on and off a lamp alternately, a logical flip-flop trigger (D-type) should be implemented between the modules (the transmitter and relay). Additionally, the tº output can be used to control a heater, air conditioning system etc.
A more advanced scheme for lighting control can be found in the Lighting control project article.

F&HOME RADIO integrates electrical installations in such a way that the processes of heating, air conditioning, ventilation, lighting, alarm and access control form one efficient system - all for the safety and comfort of the residents. With wireless two-way communication between the central unit (server) and both sensors and actuators, software solutions, as well as remote control of the system that can performed by the users in many ways, the system allows them to manage home energy resources in a manner appropriate to their needs.
In practice, this means the ability to integrate electrical appliances in such a way that a hand gesture can create a romantic light scene in the living room and bedroom, pull down the shutters or blinds and adjust the interior temperature, for example. The option of remote control via the Internet ensures that even after our return from a long journey we are welcomed by the house as if we have never left.
