Excellent! What is it. I'm just drawn by the price lol

I have one - nice piece of kit but has always been around this price.... banggearwatch.com/pri…00/

It can bridge (convert) between 433Mhz RF (radio frequency) and WIFI signals using a phone app (ewelink) - useful for home automation projects. Can convert both ways - can use the phone to send a RF signal to devices either manually or on a timed function and also send an alert to a phone when it receives a RF signal (an alarm).

Mine arrived just this week - connects very well to some remote operated sockets but does not connect to some existing PIR sensors I have.

In it's transmitting state it is similar to the Broadlink RM Pro - bit with no IR functionality.

The name just like many Chinese brands is copying others in this case I’m sure they hit on Sonos and done a bad job in designing a logo too

And you are learning from them, you too have copied your own comment!

Does anyone have any idea if this would allow me to control my electric garage door from my smartphone remotely? Garage door is controlled via a 433Mhz push button remote at present.

More a case of you don't understand a play on words, they make switches!

It doesn't work with my garage door (neither does the Broadlink RM Pro).

I think most garage doors use dynamic codes - this supports fixed code 433 frequency, like PT2260, PT2262, PT2264, EV1527, etc. There is capability to learn rolling and dynamic codes.

Agree - Switch On Off

Thanks Van1973. I might just take a punt as it's only £7.77.

Will this bridge my SONOS speakers or Philips Hue lights? Sorry still learning

If by 'bridge' you mean connect your devices to Amazon Echo or Google Home - no.

I'm not familiar with Sonos or Hue products but I think a Sonos speaker has a RF remote control - so you could replicate that feature with this. Philips Hue use wifi signals - so no connection possible.

This device converts

(1) a received wifi signal (from your router controlled by a phone) to a RF signal (to switch on/off a RF controlled device) or
(2) a received RF signal (e.g. from a PIR or door sensor) to a wifi signal (to your router which then alerts on a phone).

agree, it's always around this price. but i always thought it was to transmit to 433 devices and not to recieve from them. i thought it only received from key remotes as part of the learning process. are you saying that it does have 2 way comms with devices? i was going to go with the energenie pi mote 2 for comms with 433 devices, but this would save a bit of hassle.

SONOS is completely wifi, theres no RF or Infrared receiver for it.
You can only control SONOS with the SONOS app or a SONOS remote (which is basically an iPod touch with the app on it) which again is WIFI.

Echo will work with SONOS now anyway, so no need for a bridge.

Have already commented on your post once but it went into moderation and has never appeared! So this is my second try!

It does both - transmit and receive - have a look at this video. itead.cc/son…tml

At the moment received RF signals only raise an alert on the ewelink app - but this app is being continuously developed and there are several technical request in to Itead to allow the RF signal to act as a trigger for a 'scene' (a sequence of automated actions to other sonoff products).

It's Zigbee between the bridge and the bulbs, although I think the bridge thing does have Wi-Fi in it.

Aha.. looks like they changed the description a bit since I first looked. I thought it was basically an internet connected RF remote with some learning, but it's clearer now it will receive trigger alerts.
I might go for it, to expand the zwave, zigbee home automation setup, as it's already hackable to use a local-only network.

They have some really good devices but could do with a marketing department to better describe and advertise their products.

I'm hoping to use mine as a simple home alarm when/if I can get some PIR sensors to work with it.

I'm not yet up to hacking these myself and just use the standard firmware - but thinking of educating myself and then having a play!

tinkerman.cat/hac…33/

basically, all the sonoff devices can be hacked with firmware to allow local network access.
I have the power monitor devices, but haven't altered them as yet.

I has a Sonoff POW fail on me after 2 days - they refunded promptly. Was very impressed.

Currently have another issue - ordered 3 Sonoff S20 remote plug sockets and only 2 were delivered (yesterday). Weight of package suggested 3 were in originally but package was not damaged and too small for 3 sockets - so suspect either error or theft at their warehouse. Interesting to see how they will handle this.

Bought this recently around this price. Pleasantly surprised. It can support 4 X 4 button RF remotes, but has no toggle option, so each 'virtual' remote can only control 2 devices ... So 8 sockets total per RF bridge. Range is good and can reach my loft from ground floor in a 3 story house. Integration with Alexa works fine, but the lack of a toggle option when used with RF sockets means I have to say "Alexa, turn on Bedside Lamp", but "Alexa, turn off Bedside Lamp Off" to turn it back off. Eventually paired to my no-name RF sockets after some trial and error, but no such problems with the Energenie sockets (Ener002) which I'm now using. Might order another if I can find some more Energenie sockets cheap enough.
