Social alarm button, connect it to a raspberry pi?

Tue Apr 03, 2018 5:59 pm

Hi,

Got my hands on a Tunstall TX4 social alarm button ( https://fccid.io/G2X-6100442/Internal-P ... os-3582557 ).
Is it possible to connect this wirelessly to a raspberry pi? So when i push the button, I trigger something connected to the RPI.

It says its a 915Mhz device so I assume it normally talks to a basestation that receives the signal and triggers an alarm.

So you would need a RF receiver for 915Mhz I guess to receive the signal. There are a few RTL-SDR devices that probably can be used, but what software could be used I'm not sure of. https://www.rtl-sdr.com/tag/raspberry-pi-3/
