@Dwalt oh wow.. thanks so much.. i was waiting for you to get back to me but never saw this post.. and i just happened to stumble on it when i was looking to see if you had been back on the forum or not.
I'm good with the hardware side of things and can shell script and do windows scripting. but still have not learned this coding yet.
i have all the hardware for the 433 stuff.
i even got the RF stuff to work (on my RPI2) and sniffed all my codes
i could just never get it to work with my arduino stuff.
likely the code, so i'm excited to give your code a go.
