Sonoff 4CHR3 is a 4-gang Wi-Fi Smart Switch with optional RF433 Connectivity

ITEAD Studio introduced Sonoff 4CH 4-gang WiFi + RF switch in 2017 with a DIN rail  enclosure, compatible with eWelink Android/iOS app, and offering three modes of operations selectable from physical switches on the unit:

  • Self-locking mode – Each relay can be turn on and off independently.
  • Interlock mode – Only one of the relay can be turned on at a given time. For example if R1 is on, and your press R2 to turn it on, R1 will automatically turn off
  • Inching mode – A button press on the unit, mobile app, or RF/WiFi remote control will turn on the relay for X seconds as defined by K6 “delay” switch within a 0.5 to 3600 seconds range.

The company has now launched the similar SONOFF 4CHR3 4-gang WiFi switch and 4CHPROR3 model that adds 433MHz connectivity, with the main difference again the previous generation being the ability to select modes of operation right from eWelink mobile app.

  1. Too bad its still unclear to me on how to use with my region.

    I have 220v in my city

    Its 2 phase with 110v each. Not 220 with phase+gnd+neutral

    It works with 220v or 110v but only 1 phase + ground + neutral

    1. It’s 100-240V, so you connect your 110V phase & neutral Input, and you have 4 controlled 110V output.

      1. Huum but how to control… I will cut 110v line for a 220v device. The device will still have a hot line of 110v connected

    2. To get 110V you would wire Line1, neutral and ground. To get 220V you would most likely change this to Line1, Line2 and ground, where Line1 and Line2 are your 2 phases.

      Before you do anything else you should ask Sonoff a direct question to make sure as their public website is lacking in detail.

      One rather key thing from the photos they publish is that only the ‘live’ power rail is controlled by relays, which is not a problem for a single-phase configuration, which only has a single power rail. In a 2 phase installation, it would leave all the second phase wiring live at all times.

  2. For some reasons, ITEAD pulled out the page for SONoff 4CHR3, so it now shows a 404 page.

    1. Answer:

      Notice! 4CHR3 and 4CHPROR3 will be available again after the 4CHR2 and 4CHPROR2 are retired. Pre-orders have been shipped out, so please contact our customer care team if you don’t get the tracking number. Sorry for the inconvenience.?
