Summary

Initial project goals are to allow the setting of room scenes from a Java based API via the Rako Ethernet bridge. If this is successful the plan is to also implement features necessary to configure/program Rako devices in a similar manner to RakoSoft.

Current equipment

  • 500w dimmer
  • 7 button control panel
  • Rako Ethernet bridge
  • RakoSoft
  • iPhone with Rako app

Proposed method

  1. Construct a minimal Rako system with one channel and an Ethernet bridge [Complete]
  2. Obtain connectivity between the bridge and the iPhone app and/or RakoSoft on a network that allows snooping [In progress]
  3. Monitor traffic between iPhone app/RakoSoft/Bridge Web UI to determine a suitable candidate for reverse engineering
  4. Reverse enginner protocol
  5. Implement the protocol with Java :-)
