 Hacking the GR101 revisited (see [0]) or: 
 How to convert the raw impedance reading from a GR101 to percentage body fat and percentage body water - by Ap15e
 
 
 Definitions:
 
 raw_impedance: data from GR101
 BD           : Body Density [kg/m^3]
 FFM          : Fat Free Mass [kg]
 Wt           : Weight [kg]
 Ht           : Height [cm]
 Z            : Impedance [ohm]
 %fat         : percentage body fat [%]
 %water       : percentage body water [%]
 
 
 Constants (best fit to formulas for data from a spreadsheet publicly available, see [1])
 
 impedance_factor = 39.198
 hydration        = 0.728895
 
 
 Formulas for males and females
 
 Z = raw_impedance / impedance_factor
 %water = ( Wt - %fat / 100 x Wt ) x hydration / Wt x 100
 
 
 Formulas for males
 
 BD = 1.100696 - 0.107903 x Wt x Z/Ht^2 + 0.00017 x Z [Tanita Corporation, see [2]]
 %fat = ( 4.57 / BD - 4.142 ) x 100                   [Brozek, see [3]]
 
 Additional formulas for percent body fat:
 
 %fat = ( 4.95  / BD - 4.5   ) x 100                  [Siri, see [3]]
 %fat = ( 4.374 / BD - 3.928 ) x 100                  [Schutte; for African-Americans, see [3]]
 %fat = ( 4.86  / BD – 4.39  ) x 100                  [Wagner]
 
 
 Formulas for females
 
 FFM = 13.96674 + 0.348613 x Ht^2/Z + 0.168998 x Wt   [Tanita Corporation, see [2]]
 %fat = ( Wt - FFM ) / Wt x 100
 
 
 Notes
 
 The formulas for males (Brozek) match the values on the remote display to a high degree 
 (error is < 0.5% for %fat and < 0.3% for %water for the data from the spreadsheet).
 
 The formulas for females yield higher errors. There is insufficient data in the spreadsheet 
 for further analysis.

Limitations

RFXCOM claims that the RFXtrx does support the GR101 (weight only), but at least for my GR101 my RFXtrx (firmware v50) doesn't get the weight right (I'm not the only one: http://board.homeseer.com/showpost.php?p=1021084&postcount=5). Workaround: None - please request a bugfix from FRXtrx if affected. Fixed according to http://www.rfxcom.com/RFXtrx433.htm

RFXCOM's RFXtrx currently (firmware v51) does not support the decoding of the impedance. Therefore, the GR101 plugin cannot currently calculate percentage body fat and percentage body water. Workaround: None - please request it as a feature from RFXCOM if interested.

Tanita's formulas might be patented. Therefore, the plugin for the GR101 is only available as DIY-ware: You have to insert the formulas of your choice into the plugin yourself ...

Let your scale talk to you

Additional requirements:

Installation:
Create a new scene with trigger 'Weight goes above 0' for your RFX device (not for the GR101 device)
