You can follow the orignal project at hack.lenotta.com. The following is an executible remote file compiled after making minor changes to the remote.cpp code. I have also included the entire RF24 folder so you can take a look at the remote.cpp code

Here is the link to the git hub for the compiled remote file as of 9/28/2014

Also you can compile the code using this command it's the only one thats working for me

  • sudo g++ -Ofast -mfpu=vfp -mfloat-abi=hard -march=armv6zk -mtune=arm1176jzf-s -Wall -I../ -lrf24-bcm remote.cpp -o remote

If the remote file does not work then you probably need to enable SPI on raspberry PI since it is disabled by default. I will be putting detailed instructions on what I did later but for now you can try out the compiled remote file. Good Luck!!

  1. cd ~/RF24/RPi/RF24/examples
  2. sudo git clone https://github.com/patelkarn/latestremotefile.git
  3. cd latestremotefile/bin/
  4. sudo cp remote ../../../examples/
  5. cd ../../
  6. ls

You should be able to run the command sudo ./remote -m 1 or 0
However for weired reason when I put in ./remote -m 1 it would turn off the light and ./remote -m 0 would turn the lights on. Did not look much into it not sure if that's how its suppose to work or not.
