So recently they installed a new door entry system in our appartment building. The BTicino Sfera line.
It is even possible to add key card reader, I might buy one and test it out with implants
But that’s not what I achieved. I have my own reader, like the xAC and found a way to “talk” to the BTicino system through the SCS bus and tell it to open the front door.
At first I tried to build my own prototype to listen to the bus signals but my reads were inconsistent.
I followed some guidance material from here and here.
So after a few weeks tweaking, testing and still getting incosistent reads. I decided to just buy a SCS shield from ebay for 77 euro’s (shipping included).
I was able to capture the command from the intercom using the example code here to open the front door and replay it when I scanned my NeXT.
Since it took myself a while to gather information about it and get it to work. I thought it might be usefull to post it here and bundle some links. (2 websites are in Italian, thank god for google chrome translate function)
