I actaully didn't see a better price coming on this after I posted it from elsewhere for £3.56.... Well it did 52p cheaper with the code. Remember to whip the insurance cost off (which is 78p extra) for this price.

Device not certified for electrical safety and no fuse....
I would suggest buying a fire extinguisher as well.
If your house does burn down then don't rely on your house insurance paying out as they'll take a dim view of an uncertified device being wired into mains electricity.

Yeah best off buying original Sonoff CE ones for safety reasons. Double check before buying

Fairly obviously they will if it is the cause of a fire.
I bought a couple of these and they are okay but the wiring connectors are a bit naff, I prefer the plug in s20 model but they do cost about 3 times the price so these are a bargain. My S20's have a CE mark on but it could well be fake. The TH10 and TH16 can do temperature and humidity which is handy if you need it, and the RF bridge is also hand for 433mhz remote controls.

One other thing is that the Ewelink goes down quite a bit, they say they are upgrading the system but who knows.

Not so sure, this is likely to turn to ash isn’t it?

There's a mechanical relay inside which will be rated to the maximum current it can switch. Hence the reason a fuse would have been a good idea.

I assume most people would wire this via 13a plug?

Could always derate to 10 or 3a

Is that what this is, I’d be surprised if a fake sonoff will correctly register on their servers? As long as this is not a fake then even the sonoff basic is CE marked (take from that what you will).

It is CE certified - itead.cc/wik…pdf

Why does it need a fuse? Does the TP-Link HS100 have a fuse?
I've been running 3 of these continuously for 2 years in an outbuilding controlling the lighting via Alexa. They were from Banggood but not sure on the certification. I connected an additional earth between the devices. I then connected it o a 5 amp circuit breaker with RCD protection in the outbuildings consumer panel.
Not a single issue except when the remote server went down for a day due to dos attack.

DO NOT use for switching on kettles as some Youtube twit hinted. Best used on lightly loaded items such as led lighting.

You could hook this up to a contactor and switch much higher loads

I would not go over 200-500w on the thing itself

Same reason every electrical item you plug in a socket does.
CE don't mean nothing. Manufacturer can self certify.
So, how is this "dual channel"?

I know these Sonoffs are ce marked now but jamkins post suggests there are fakes out there that aren’t made to ce standards. So I’m now confused
soton265 h, 21 m ago

Maybe jamgin can elaborate as I thought from their website Sonoff conform to ce standards and made the details readily available on their website

Well what is that reason - that is what I asked? Why does something that simply passes through a current need a fuse?


And what certification should they have "for electrical safety"?


You're a lot short of any details - just pure unsubstantiated allegations!
Edited by: "Van1973" 6th May
As to the suggestion there are "fake" Sonoff devices - why would anyone try to fake such a cheap product? Surely they would counterfeit more expensive products like TP Links etc???

If anyone has any proof at all of any fake Sonoff products I'd like to see it as I have over 20 products all working fine - some over 18 months old now.

I have one wired up to a short extension lead, I use it on the weekend and hook up my coffee machine. When I wake up I just say Alexa turn on kitchen plug, when I get downstairs I have a freshly brewed mug of fresh coffee ready to go. All have to do is set it up the night before.

Draw=uses. it doesn't normally, that's the maximum load it can carry. If you don't understand this, I wouldn't mess with it.

Haha very witty!

I have one and it works fine if you splice it in between lamps etc with fused plugs using 3amp or 10amp fuse and dont go wild splicing it into 2kw heaters lol
Edited by: "omendata" 6th May
Assuming fake sonoffs don't exist (this is what I thought anyway) then someone needs to clear up once and for all if these things would invalidate insurance should they cause a fire. I guess the first place to start would be to confirm their CE certification but then some are saying this can be self-certified so then I'm not sure where to go with it.

I have a couple of sonoffs but haven't used them yet for this reason.
