Currently the DIY community has been taken over by ESP8266 devices as they are cheap and Arduino compatible. I have several of them in my use as well – ESP8266, Wemos D1 Pro, Sonoff Smart Switch and Sonoff POW.
Smart home market is growing, but mostly all devices work with the cloud, which most people do not like, because the data and control aren’t private and safe. Thanks to ITEAD we have some beautiful devices what we can use for our projects.
So, today I have received from itead.cc the new Sonoff Touch – wifi wall switch, and I have strong belief that most of us have been waiting for it. It is the first wall switch, which can be easily reprogrammed with custom software (as it is based on ESP8266) and can be used locally with MQTT by example.
This is how it looks. Now I will try to flush it with custom firmware and will report about the progress.
Thanks to ITEAD for their devices, as smart home market is growing, but mostly all devices work with the cloud, which most do not like, because the data and control aren’t private and safe.
