App Note: wireless home security implementing KEELOQ® and PIC®

KEELOQ® is an authentication system designed by Microchip. It’s based on a proprietary, non-linear encryption algorithm that creates a unique transmission on every use, supposedly rendering RF replay attacks useless. The algorithm uses a programmable 64-bit encryption key unique to each device to generate 32-bit hopping code.

In this new app note, Microchip presents a design for a basis wireless home security system. The project implements an HCS200 encoder for the intruder sensor signal encryption, one PIC12C508A PIC® MCU for sensor monitoring and RF signal initiation, HCS515 decoders for decrypting the received intruder sensor signal and a PIC16C77 PIC MCU for base station panel monitoring and control.
