Geiger WiFi

About a year ago I bought and assembled the open source and open hardware Geiger counter by MightyOhm at the Chaos Communication Congress. Since this device does not have a display to show the current measured values, I extended it by some hardware to do the job. I’ve used a ESP8266 SoC by Wemos and connected a cheap OLED display via i2c. The measured data is send from the Geiger counter to the ESP8266 via UART. Since the ESP8266 has WiFi capabilities, the measured values are not only shown on the display, but also on a small web page. Read more

433MHz OOK Remote

After playing around with my SDR and wireless sockets I had a look at other devices, which also use ASK/OOK modulated signals. I found a different wireless socket system, an alarm system and a sex toy. After analyzing the signals, I wanted do build a remote to control them all. I used an Adafruit Trinket (ATtiny85) as micro controller and a cheap OOK transmitter module at 433MHz. The code on the controller just sends the same signal as the original remote replay attack).

Wireless Socket Remote

In order to improve my understanding of Software Defined Radios (SDRs) and wireless communication in general, I tinkered with cheap wireless sockets. The results are two pieces of software. Sniffer: This script can eavesdrop on the signals the remote control sends to the sockets. It displays the address, the socket identifier (A, B, C, D or E) and the state (on/off). Remote control: This script allows you to change the state of any socket by supplying the address and the socket identifier. Alternatively you can use the brute-force mode to turn on/off every socket within range. Read more
