Any suggestions what can be (or should be) used for?
Anything under 10amps

Custom electrical projects, could be added to anything if you don't mind Hacking your electronics to bits. I'm buying a few for a project I'm doing with automatic lighting.
has anyone tried "Shelly" smart switch. it is rated at 16amp hence many claim it to be better. has anyone here got first hand experience. Shelly is over 3 times expensive compared to sonoff

How do you incorporate it? I've seen this a few times, but unsure specifically what level it comes in at? I assume it's not a plug and play system?

I'm guessing you wire it into some electronics, and can turn it on/off from this? Is that the only functiionality? I'm really interested, but found it hard to find anything about these switches.

I thought I could use them to control my lights, instead of getting smart bulbs by wiring it to my normal light switch, but I do not know the specifics of how it works.

Thanks in advance!
OK so finally ordered 2 of these for under cabinet LED lighting in the kitchen, let see how well they automate.

If you were using it with a lamp you would wire exactly the same way you would with an inline switch, or you can do it at the lamp base and hide it inside the lamp if there is space etc..

I have a Zigbee certified version of one of these, great for using with Hue..

not sure how well this will integrate though?

Well that is the idea, I have ordered 2 to see how well they integrate with a hue motion sensor.. as for light switches, you can buy this sort of thing.. amazon.co.uk/dp/…381

Ah, ok. Thanks! They seem relatively good, then!

Unfortunately, I've had a look at a bunch of light switches, and 95% of them need a neutral wire, which I do not have.

Only ones I've seen that don't need a netrual are ones that require a hub/bridge using their own protocol, but I'd prefer not to be locked down to a particular ecosystem.

Thanks again!
You can also wire them inline to a multi-way or single extension cable, that way you're not modifying the cable on a single product and can move it to something else if you change your mind.

Just bear in mind on a multiway especially you'd still want to ensure you don't exceed the 10amp load.
Just taken advantage of this, thanks op

I've only just started looking at this stuff but I believe Sonoff have a 16amp version with, I think, support for earth run too.

I recently had my credit card cancelled and a new one reissued . The card company would only say that a company I had used had had their security compromised. I asked a friend who's a bank worker and the first thing he asked was have you been using it on Chinese sites. Since then I've used Paypal , taking a hit with extra charges. Was without a card for a week , it was like someone had cut off my right arm.

You'd have to wire it for the live n neutral for the light. Then parallel the live either side of the wifi switch so in theory get a switch n also a smart switch
Hey guys, posted sonoff deal from same shop last month, got my sonoffs and they are new version pcbs! Means no more soldered paths but wires used and also there's fuse on board! No gpio14 to solder external switch but gpio2 instead. Tasmota need to be used with experimental firmware.

at it's simplest it can be wired in wherever an inline switch can be used (mine replace inline switches on a few thing, bedside lamp, fish tank lights etc). It need 'plug' mains, not lighting circuit in the uk. It is a smart switch, so has a local push button, an app for timers, buttons, events etc. You can use Alexa/Google/IFTTT etc.
You can take it further though and put new firmware, like Arduino style, and then take control add sensors and wire in your own puch button swithes. Look up Tasmota

that's wat i did, but got the 16 amp version 🐵
only problem the app keeps freezing on my s7, when adding new devices
thanks OP, now i need to think how im going to install this on the landing light for security.

ESP 8285, no gpio14 (gpio2 instead), no more soldered tracks, added fuse. Just flashed 6 of these with tasmota, so far it works. If you're going to the same remember to flash experimental fw otherwise on board button won't switch the relay.
