Hi

Does a driver for "RfXcom" or "Telldus" exists ?
I want to use it to control devices from "Nexa".

Best regards.
Never heard of either of those things, so pretty sure the answer would be no. What are they?
Hi

Here is a link to read more about rfxcom.
http://www.rfxcom.com/

And here is telldus.
http://www.telldus.com/

They are to used to control devices through wireless comunication.
They are generic wireless control devices supporting several wireless protocols. I ran across them when researching weather stations, they can support a lot of wireless weather station protocols which is another option over using your weather console to attach via serial to a PC.

If there is an xPL driver that might be a way to interface, I think they support xPL...
Was anything ever done with the RFXCom? This is a very handy 433Mhz bi-directional unit for LOTS of things out there ranging from weather stations as mentioned to environmental sensors (temp/humidity/etc) and door/window and even motion sensors. Lots of RF devices even Ceiling fans and automated blinds/curtains.
No, nothing ever came of that.

Down the road after Linux and things settle it would be nice to look into this.
I have an RFXCOM at the moment and would be interested in a driver perhaps too. I use it for RF blind motors right now via the generic serial driver - 1 way comms only. Seems it can interface to a lot of devices.
Yeah I have a RFXcom in a box. I bought it to work on but I've never opened it. I'm thinking I want to try out some 433Mhz door sensors. This isn't for security use at all it's just for automation use so not a security concern around 433Mhz.
