I'm building a garden monitor, so I got myself an Arduino Nano, a soil humidity sensor, an air humidity and temperature sensor as well as a luminosity sensor. Since I had not one but two Raspberry Pis laying around I thought I'll handle the receiving end with one of them. I also got a 433 MHz RF kit.
The trail of the information will look like this: Sensor(s) -> Arduino -> 433 MHz Transmitter - - - 433 MHz - - - 433 MHz Receiver -> Raspberry Pi
Now my question is, what libraries should I use? I checked rc-switch (it has libs for both Arduino as well as RPi) and managed to send some codes but it seems that I'll need to write my own protocol to use this to transmit even simple data as it wasn't developed for sending data, rather simple switch on / switch off signals to simulate remotes.
VirtualWire would seem as the ideal candidate but the problem is it doesn't have an RPi equivalent.
