Hey guys.


I recently got a house.

In this house I got a lamp socket, that is turn on and off by some wireless switch which contains a battery,
The lamp socket and the wireless switch is pair with press on a button on first the lamp socket, then the switch.

I been trying to figure out what it is, there is no serie number or model number on it. so got no idea what it is.

What i hope to do. is trying to figure out the signal sent wireless. and hopefully spoof it. so i can make my own, that works with this.

Do anyone have any idea on a way to figure out the signal, that could point me in the right direction.

i would really help me out.

Thanks for your time.

I would bet at Zigbee or Bluetooth. You can use something like https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/microchip-technology/ATZB-X0-256-3-0-CR/4502387 or similar alternatives to listen and see if you see anything come up. Bluetooth is the same boat https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/sparkfun-electronics/WRL-10573/5764510?utm_adgroup=RF Evaluation and Development Kits%2C Boards&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping_Product_RF%2FIF and RFID_NEW&utm_term=&utm_content=RF Evaluation and Development Kits%2C Boards, just listen for traffic and narrow it down. Software-wise, there are a variety of solutions out there but, Btlejack you can use for Bluetooth, Zigbee you can use Wireshark paired with ti's packet sniffer.
