Found 23rd JanEdited by:"caverncity"
Just received a couple of these and they are great and can confirm they do work with Google Home. Connected it to my porch light but no earth so had to strip the wire back so the earth was still inline, then removed the top cover of the switch and passed the wire through it, put the cover back on and wired it up as if it was just twin cable. Downloaded the app, it said it didnt connect to 5ghz so linked it to my Coredy waited for it to link then went to Home and linked it from there.
I paid £4 each they are now £3.89 each reduced again to £3.76
90v -250v upto 10 amp

Good price, had a few of these and work best (for me) once flashed.
Any IFTTT integration?
Guessing no CE mark on these? Just wonder if they were safe as any malfunction wouldn't be covered by insurance if the house burnt down lol

Ill check mine in a minute however even if it did show a CE mark it doesnt mean anything, if they can fake goods they wont stop at putting a CE mark on anything electrical if it means a sale. Also there are two types of CE markings, one as you already know of and the other is "China Export"

Out of the box they support IFTTT - details on the official iTead website.

Irrelevant as the insurance company will find a way to wriggle out of paying out regardless the cause!
These are £3.66 from the official site - although you do need to then add P&P...
So heat added.. (even though I reckon I got them cheaper from eBay!) - just checked, I got 6 for £27 delivered, so £3.79 each

Pretty sure they have approval. I remember reading something about it on their website, although my google-fu fails me currently.

You can make them act like a wemo plug I believe. I've not tried it myself yet but I'm interested to try as the sonof servers have been struggling.

The cheap Sonoff modules don't have the markings. However the TH10,16,pow & duals have the markings and the certificate is on their website....

It's funny I got laughed at when I first suggested these on here as alternatives to the NEST options...
Note that these are 2 phase only, they have no earth connection. So can only be used with devices with only live/neutral cables.
Ordered one thanks, anyone seen 13amp versions please?

I thought 240 was single phase, just loop the earth through and good to go

Well last I checked you did not need to earth your light switch

all depends on what you are using it for, mine was for an outside metal cased light.
No double insulation logo.
You take an earth to accessories for a reason if you get a fault then it will trip the fuse that's a cable fault or accessory fault. Or ADS automatic disconnection of supply

This is an in-line device, so wouldn't be suitable for a light switch. For a table or standard lamp, yes.
So hot it may even just catch fire!

But you could mount it in metal enclousure...
Shame it's not comparable with smart things

Did I read somewhere that these can be flashed to work with smart things, looks a bit complex though

I run a 500w heater through one and it doesn't even get warm. As for the earth issue just continue it through the box.
Can be flashed and works with Alexa!

Hats off, after all the box says 10A, you are at 2.1 with this but still brave - or more likely I'm just a big wimp!

Step away from electricity - if you don't know the difference between earth and a plastic case you are a danger to yourself and others if you dabble.

An earth connection is not needed to complete a UK mains circuit, however it is there as a safety measure, without it if there is a fault the electricity will find the path of least resistance to earth anyway - that's usually the person operating the switch!

This is HotUKdeals, I don't expect anyone to take advice on here (or any web site for that matter) at face value - if in doubt consult a qualified electrician. Seriously - messing about with mains can kill!

Sorry - whats the benefit of flashing I followed your helpful link but it gives the how but not the why? Thanks
Works with Alexa as is. Just install the EWeLink Fan app - don’t ask why fan but I can confirm mine work.

Post under mine if you haven't already seen it.

Say it every time but I love these things, cheap as chips and so versatile when flashed, loads of uses beyond just switching things too.

I just flashed "Espurna" on a Sonoff S20 that I'd bought a while ago to control a pond UV filter, but as yet haven't used. The build quality and pcb design of the S20 looks better than the basic and it will be outside next to a pond in a fire retardant plastic box, so in this case I'm not too bothered even if it bursts into fire :).

It adds support for MQTT, DOMOTICZ and THINGSPEAK, which I believe are all popular itot control protocols.

Flashing also removes dependency on the sonoff servers.

My primary reason for flashing it was to be able to uninstall the ewelink app, freeing up a bit of internal memory on my android phone. And it is also convenient to be able to control it from a browser.

I went for Espurna because they'd just added support for switching by schedule.

Cool - no doubt these are awesome for the money! I tried building my own with ESP8266s - then these came out, they are so cheap!
