usage/The different kind of signs.
There are currently 3 specific signs of WirelessRedstone, the Receiver, the Transmitter, and the Screen.
The transmitter sends a redstone signal to all the receivers of a channel. There can be one or many transmitters for each channel, but you need to power only one to turn on all the receivers of a channel.
- To create a transmitter, put the tag [transmitter] or [wrt] on the first line of the sign, and the name of the channel on the second line.
- You can also create one with the command /wr t <channel name>. It will appear with the direction you're looking at.
The receiver receives a signal of a channel. It's a sign, like the transmitter, but if you send a signal with one transmitter, it will turn into a redstone torch. There can be one or many receivers in a channel.
- You can create a receiver by placing a sign somewhere and putting [receiver] or [wrr] on the first line and the name of your channel on the second line.
- You can also create one by using the command /wr r <channelname>.
The normal receiver. If a transmitter is powered the receiver is instantly powered on.
Like the default receiver, but turns on when all the transmitters of the channel are off.
It will run like a normal receiver but it adds delay to the reaction time. E.g. the transmitter is powered/unpowered and the delay is 5 seconds it will take 5 seconds before its on/off. So it gives delay to on AND off.
- <delay in miliseconds>
Clock Receiver (added in 1.9.6)
This receiver turns automatically on and off again when the transmitter is powered. You can compare it with a redstone clock.
- <delay in miliseconds between on and off>
Switch Receiver (added in 2.4)
It will turn on the first time you power an transmitter and it will turn off when you power it the second time
The screen shows the status of a channel. If none of the transmitters are powered, it will show that the channel is INACTIVE, and if one or several of them are powered, it will show ACTIVE. The screen will probably show more informations in the future.
- To create a screen, do the same as the receiver and the transmitter : put [screen] or [wrs] on the first line of a sign you place somewhere, and the name of your channel on the second line.
- You can also create one by using the command /wr s <channelname>.
