A project log for Car alarm secure remote with nRF24LE1

My car's alarm remote went dead. Now is the opportunity to implement a safer and more reliable remote for it using nRF24LE1.

My estimates (by thumb rule) where a bit pessimist.

So, I got an average of 6mA standby current on the receiver module and only 2.6mA active current on the transmitter! This enables a much longer battery life!

The receiver standby current:

The transmitter active current:

P.S. don't mind the dusty multimeter :) It's been a while since he was last used.
