How do I decode a Door/Window event?

The Door/Window Sensor will generate events according to the proximity of the included wall-mounted magnet.

Door/Window Event Message: 0x03
      Byte                        Description
      0                              Presence of magnet (closed or open)

Door/Window Event Payload Definitions
      Event Payload      Description
      0x00      Sensor is “closed” meaning that the magnet is present
      0x01                       Sensor is “open” meaning that no magnet is present


Example of Door/Window Event Message:

      1 0 03 01

                 Protocol Version (currently always 0x1)
      0     Packet Counter (increments by 1 each message and wraps from 0xF to 0x0)
      03     Message Type Code (Door/Window Event = 0x03)
      01     Event (Door Opened = 0x01)

The RadioBridge Console will generate the following output for this message:

      Door Opened
