Sonoff S26 WiFi Smart Plug Works in All/Most Countries, Sells for under $10

Sonoff-s26-wifi-smart-plug-europe-usa

One recurring issue with smart plugs / sockets is that they are often designed with a specific prong type, so if you want to use them in our country you may have to add an adapter, which may not be ideal, since the socket may fall off or have bad contact. Sonoff S26 WiFi smart plug solves that issue as ITEAD Studio made it available in six different versions for China, Australia, United Kingdom,  Europe type F, Europe type E, and the United States. Sonoff S26 specifications: Standard – US/ UK/ CN/AU/ EU(type F/E) Power supply – 90V~250V AC @ 50/60Hz Max. Current – 10A Max power – 2200W Connectivity – 802.11.b/g/n 2.4G WiFi with WEP/TKIP/AES encyprtion, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK security Dimensions – 104 x 55 x 73 mm (Fire Retardant ABS enclosure) Weight –  130 grams Temperature Range – 0ºC-40ºC Humidity-  5%-90%RH, Non-condensing Certification – CE Just like other Sonoff devices, Sonoff S26 can be controlled via eWelink app fo Android …

Two Interesting Projects on Github: Zigbee to MQTT bridge & “Deep Painterly Harmonization”

zigbee-dongle

Hey Karl here. I thought I would try and showcase some GitHub projects that I run into that seem interesting or fun. This week I will start out with 2 projects. Zigbee to MQTT bridge The first one today is a Zigbee to MQTT bridge. Previously we did a couple articles with 433MHz bridges for home automation, a diy RF bridge and one by Sonoff. This bridge is similar but with Zigbee. Unfortunately 433MHz typically have one way communications, and when a message is sent there is no response and the system has to assume the message is received. Zigbee is a 2 way protocol and an acknowledgement can be sent back. The code is moving fast right now and blowing up my GitHub notices. It is a little bit of a mystery on how this works right now with the parts list, but seems to be working for some people. Link to github: zigbee2mqtt Deep Painterly Harmonization The second …

$24 Eastron SDM120C Smart Meter Supports RS485, ModBus, Up to 45A Load

A couple of days ago, I wrote about Sonoff POW R2 WiFi switch with power monitoring function that meant to be connected to your mains via terminal, and I was made aware of another product – Eastron SDM120C – that also does power metering, but support up to 45A (good enough for whole house in many cases), and use RS485 / Modbus communication instead of WiFi. I’ve also noticed it’s compatible with Domoticz with source code released on Github, so it might be worth a look. Eastron SDM120C specifications: Rated Voltage (Un) – 220/230V Voltage Range – 0.8~1.2 Un Base Current – 5A Max. / Min.
