Livolo, serial, no RF
The livolo switches I have are not rf, Im wondering if anyone has had success connecting an arduino (or other) to the pads for the rf module on the board? I tried to connect an ftdi to it and let all the magic smoke out of the livolo. Wiring mistake most likely. I did find a project where the pic was reprogrammed to give serial, but I was hoping to just feed the remote codes to the board via an arduino.
I do see projects here that create a new board, but im finicky and would like to keep it mostly stock.
It looks like tx pad connects to tx on the pic, and DER connects to rb6, I'm guessing I picked the wrong line for ground. Oddly my ftdi still works, even though there was a loud snap, and lots of soot on the board.
