Reverse engineering wireless pro studio lighting

Posted on Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 in Arduino, code, Logic Sniffer, reversed, wireless by the machinegeek

Richard Webb just finished an article on reverse engineering the wireless protocol used to communicate with some pro studio lighting. His approach involves sniffing the SPI bus into the lighting controller’s RF module using the Open Bench Logic Sniffer to obtain preliminary addressing information, then used an nRF24L01+ module in receive mode to capture packets. He used the results to discern the control signals and used an Arduino to transmit the desired control signals using a nRF24L01+ module.

Richard’s post can be found on his Zoetrope tech blog.
