I have bought a house a few years ago and it has an awning roof above the terrace. It is remote controlled by a SIMU remote, what uses the 433.42 Mhz frequency and has some method to pair the controller with the remote. (What I have found before it has a jumping code solution for safe control, so no option to hack something to it.)
And that’s where my problem starts. The installation of the awning and the controller is a remarkable product of the Eastern European professionalism.
I have two cables coming out of the outside wall, which has styrofoam cover for insulation as well. One of them is, I assume, the wiring for the motor only, should be 4 wires. The other, I guess, is the antenna of the controller, probably a SIMU one, but that cannot be confirmed (yet).
The big question, how long are usually the antenna cables for this find of devices, or is it something else?
I cannot see any junction box neither inside or outside of the wall, so must be somewhere under the styrofoam, but a good knowledge would be useful to know how deep I should cut through to reach it.
I have a zwave blind controller already what I would fit there on top of the current controller or just replace it. I haven’t decided yet.
From anyone who has worked with any of these older controllers and has any knowledge what sizes they have and the length of the antenna, that information would be really valuable for me.
Or any advice how not to damage the wall and the controller meanwhile trying to access it…
