 +
 +==== Protocol ====
 +
 +The techlico_switch protocol sends 50 pulses like this
 +<​code>​
 +208 624 208 832 208 624 624 208 208 624 208 624 624 208 624 208 208 832 624 208 208 832 208 624 208 832 624 208 624 208 624 208 208 832 208 624 208 832 208 832 208 624 208 624 624 208 624 208 208 7072 
 +</​code>​
 +
 +The last two pulses are the ''​footer''​. These are meant to identify the pulses as genuine. We don't use them for further processing. The next step is to transform this output into 24 groups of 2 pulses (and thereby dropping the ''​footer''​ pulse).

 +624 208 
 +208 7072 
 +</​code>​
 +
 +If we now analyse these groups we can distinguish two types of groups:
 +  - ''​208 624''​
 +  - ''​624 208''​
 + 
 +The 1st group is defined by a short-long sequence (logical 0)
 +The 2nd group is defined by a long-short sequence (logical 1)
 +
 +<​code>​
 +Binary representation:​
 +000100110100011100000011
 +</​code>​
 +
 +We can group the sequence of bits into the following groups A and B:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BBBB BBBB
 +0001001101000111 0000 0011
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Each of the groups of bits (A and B) has a specific meaning:
 +
 +^Group^Bit #^config name^Range^Description^
 +|A|1 to 16|"​id":​|1 to 65535|SystemCode id|
 +|B|17 to 24|"​unit":​|1 to 4|Button Code unit|
 +The protocol driver creates the binary presentation as required by the device
 +
 +||||0000 0011|-u 1  Button A Toogle device status|
 +||||1100 0000|-u 2  Button B Toogle device status|
 +||||0000 1111|-u 3  Button C Toogle device status|
 +||||0000 1100|-u 4  Button D Toogle device status|
 +
 +So this code represents:
 +<​code>​
 +{
 +        "​code":​ {
 +                "​id":​ 4935,
 +                "​unit":​ 1
 +        },
 +        "​origin":​ "​receiver",​
 +        "​protocol":​ "​techlico_switch",​
 +        "​uuid":​ "​0000-00-00-00-000000",​
 +        "​repeats":​ 2
 +}
 +</​code>​
 +**Examples**
 +
 +CLI command:
 +<​code>​
 +pilight-send -p techlico_switch -i 4935 -u 1
 +
 +</​code>​
 +
 +** Known Limitations **
 +
 +As the device will not report its state, and the same Button on the original remote control toggles the state of the device, the GUI may show the wrong status of the device.
