    I first tested with one of these, the problem is that this thing is a female DB9 and if you had your betabrite connected to a PC, you usually used a female DB9 connector at the end of the Betabrite cable. So I remember I bought a DB9 male to male adapter, but then the TX/RX connections were reversed. In the end I don't remember if I finally got it to work this way (but in theory, it's possible), and since I wanted to go WiFi only on my betabrite, I didn't need the DB9 connection at all so I bought the max3232 logic level converter without any connector and soldered cables on it (which was a real pain because the converter is really tiny)


      OK, thanks for the input. I got RJ12 to DB9 connectors, so I guess I'll be able to just swap the RX and TX. But I'll get some max3232 logic converts as well to just follow your guide.

      Are you Norwegian (or Scandinavian) and getting started with HomeSeer? Read the "HomeSeer School"!


        Can you send command / messages to the sign thru MQTT, or does it require some other software? I see it works with homeseer, but sadly I do not use that, I have something else, but still would love to use this method, even if from a linux command line script. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.
