Observe your neighbours weather stations

··112 words·1 min

Install the package named rtl-433 on most distributions on Linux. It’s also available on FreeBSD.

You might want to install these udev-Rules.

FYI, reloading these rules with:

$ sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger

Then we should be able to run the program like this:

$ rtl_433 -C si -M hires -M level -M stats -Y auto

This will look per default on 433.29 MHz, other available frequencies are 315, 345, 868 and 915 MHz. To listen on other frequencies add -f 868M to the command above for example.

I’ve installed this on a laptop running Ubuntu.
