ESPHome compatible ESP32-S2 module offers six 32A latch relays in a DIN Rail enclosure

EasySensors “6Gang30AmpsLatchRelayEspHomeReady” (now that’s a product name!) is a DIN Rail mountable, ESP32-S2-based automation device featuring six 32A latch relays and supporting ESPHome open-source framework.

The system also comes with two inputs for Dallas temperature sensors, two buttons for manual control of relays, a USB-C port for programming, as well as an external SMA antenna for WiFi connectivity.

The ESP32-S2 firmware’s binary files are available on Github, and the instructions to get started with ESPHome can be found on Github.io. Note this requires Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, and Firefox does not work. You can check out how to get started in the video below.

Considering the device is supposed to handle up to 32A and connect to the mains, I was quite surprised the company did not provide any information about safety, either through specific measures taken during PCB design or safety certifications like TUV or ETL.

EasySensors ESP32-S2 6-gang home automation solution can be purchased on Aliexpress for $74 plus shipping. Note it’s not the first time we write about EasySensors, as the company’s easySwitchBox  LoRa wall switch was featured on CNX Software when it launched on Crowd Supply in 2019.

I bought a pile of Shelly pro 4 pm’s instead. Those speak ethernet, mqtt and whatnot. No DS18B20 sensor input, but I’d rather do that from my data rack anyway…

It is sensible choice. Shelly pro 4pm is almost perfect device. But I think the uncompromised load capability is the point of the reviewed device. Shelly uses HF32FV-16 relays. These are good relays. But you are still limited to 3A for electronic ballasts and 1HP motors. I’am pretty sure I can’t use the shelly to connect the kitchen to the mains. I wouldn’t connect even an entire room with lots of loads to the mains using the shelly or any other device with generic 10/16/25A relay.

> The ESP32-S2 firmware is closed source with the binary files

Esphome is completely open source thing.

In the corresponding repo one can find 6Gang30AmpsLatchRelay.yaml (which is plain text config) paste it to local Esphome install, generate and flash firmware on the fly.

That fits. All one needs is a yaml and the rest of the “work” is done by esphome:

I agree, without expirience with ESPHome it is tricky to get idea. ESPHome kind of code generator for PlatformIO based on simple human readble yaml config and offer excellent intergarion with Homeassistant smart home stack. But also support MQTT, Web UI or can be replaced with another firmware as in yaml defined all the logic and pinout. We can say, without 6Gang30AmpsLatchRelay.yaml it can be considered closed source (but easilly reversed) while config is simple way to change things: For example, controller type: esp32: board: esp32-s2-saola-1 variant: ESP32S2 framework: type: esp-idf version: recommended 123456 esp32:   board: esp32-s2-saola-1   variant: ESP32S2   framework:… Read more »

After a bit of research I think this is for installing pre-built firmware from github page without ESPHome installed, as shown on video.
ESPHome itself looks very different and able to flash via chorme-based browser or derectly attached device via any browser.
