by | Apr 1, 2021 | Tutorial

You may have not only one remote control in your home or office. But have you ever wondered how your remote control communicates with various devices and appliances? There is more than one way. In this blog, we’ll explain the RF 433MHz remote control mainly, with its directions and useable devices. You can have a clearer guide of RM433 Remote Controller after reading this blog.

App control maybe the first remote control way that pumps out in your mind when it comes to smart home. It is a common but not the most convenient way when you are at home. The remote control is a better choice since you do not need to worry about the Wi-Fi signal nor find the App on your phone anywhere.

Remote control of devices send commands via several different types of energy, radio frequency (RF), infrared (infrared), or bluetooth. RM433 is a RF 433MHz remote control with 8 buttons, which can control SONOFF and other brands’ smart devices that have 433MHz communication module. You may get confused when pairing and clearing RM433, since different devices have slight differences. Don’t worry, all your confusion can be solved by the following instructions.

Tips: The essence of pairing is to make the devices into learning mode and sending the pairing signal, which we call the key value learning.
