SONOFF iPlug S60 – A $10.9 compact WiFi smart socket with built-in energy monitoring function

SONOFF iPlug S60 is a compact ESP32-C3-based WiFi smart socket with built-in energy monitoring support and available with either Type E/F or Type G prongs for respectively European and British markets, as well as other countries using those types of sockets.

ITEAD has manufactured home automation devices that measure power consumption for years, such as the SONOFF POW switch directly connected to the mains or the SONOFF S31 smart socket, but those are/were much larger devices, and the new SONOFF iPlus S60 is fairly small and barely larger than some other smart sockets that lack an energy monitoring function, whiling handling up to 16A or 4,000W at 220-250V.

SONOFF iPlug S60 Smart socket energy monitoring

The iPlug S60 works with the usual eWelink app which can be used to check daily, monthly, and yearly cumulative power consumption, turn on and off the socket, set a timer or countdown schedule, and works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. You don’t necessarily need to have an Internet connection – except for the setup part – with the socket being compatible with the LAN control function in eWelink. More details can be found in the user manuals and quick start guides for the two sockets.

The company also says it can be used with the SONOFF SNZB-06P human presence sensor to turn the lights on when someone is present and off when someone is gone in a way that works better than traditional PIR motion sensors. The new iPlug S30 smart socket is also compatible with iHost, NSPanel, and NSPanel Pro gateways/controllers.

  1. Most important question: Can a open source firmware like esphome installed OTA? Does this device support the utterly bad sonoff DIY mode?
