I would like to know more about RF Transmitters/Receivers to provide wireless communications from one low voltage device to another related low voltage device (ideally 6-12V). I've looking around on the internet but I'm still a little stuck.
In the past, I've been cheating by purchasing those ready-made remote control switches and hard-wiring my existing circuits to the remote control (as in Keyfob transmitter!) and receiver. Has been working ok, but I want to do it properly now! No keyfobs!
I have seen various **RX and TX "modules"** out in the market, but someone said you can't just connect them directly to a power source and antenna and expect them to work... I need a driver or something... not sure exactly what he called it... Decoder maybe? I've noticed a lot of the suppliers make it a little off-putting by not providing links for compatible drivers - especially for amateurs like myself. I mean, how do I know which driver to get for the RX/TX modules I decide to get?
For argument's sake, let's just say I decide to purchase the "433MHz Wireless Modules" from Jaycar Electronics (ZW-3100 and ZW-3102). What driver circuits will work with these modules, and please explain to me why you chose them.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
