Will these run your own FW, ESP Easy FW, or modified ESP Easy FW?
At this moment, all the Meek switches are running on a stock ESPEasy Mega Firmware.
For now, ESPEasy gives us all the options and flexibility we need to operate the switches and I want to thank you and the team for this magnificent piece of software!
All your efforts are appreciated and keep up the good work !

We’re still trying to acquire casings for a double-, and even a triple variant wall sockets.

We want to deliver a diversity of sockets so the Meek devices can be installed in various environments.
Till now, this has proven to be very difficult! We have not been able to acquire the double and triple sockets yet and the last resort is to develop these in-house. In this stage of the development of the Meek Smart Switches, developing the casings + matching glass panels, will add an extra complexity to the project.

But if someone knows where we can acquire, or even know a party that is willing to cooperate with us to produce the casing + glass panels, we are more than willing to listen!
For the future we have more fantastic idea’s that we would like to add to the Meek switches. For one of the options, we need to “play” with the casing structure and material choices. So we can add more functions, gimmicks and also, to be able to add even more options to personalize the switches to match your desires.
Thanks for the reply,

So it's not possible to fit 2 single switches next to each other in a double socket?
Also, All devices seem to be out of stock on your site, when do you expect new stock? :)
For this, we need a double socket casing and glass panel. At this moment, it’s not possible to place 2 Meek switches in a double socket. However, this is something that has our attention and it will be one of the items to tackle in the future.

We hope to have a new stock within 2 months, we will update our website once we have a hard date.

Thank you for your interest !

Thanks for the info. We're happy to hear that stock FW is on them. Great news :D

Herewith a pictures of the latest revisions Meek MP1 switches.

We’re currently assembling these to distribute them to a select group of tester.

The Meek MP1 is a :
• Wi-Fi enabled light switch
• With a Doppler presence detector
• Audi visual feedback with a RGB addressable LED and a RTTTL Speaker
• Fully programmable timers a functions

This switch operates out of the box even without a Wi-Fi connection.
Once connected to Wi-Fi you can control it with any device that has a browser (Phone, TV, Smart Watch,…) or by speech recognition enabled devices (Google Home, Alexa, Siri,..).

Ongoing, we’re expanding the functions of these devices.
For instance :
• Alarm Function ; you can “arm” the device, so whenever a movement is detected, the Meek MP1 will sound and alarm and blink the light continuously until the user disarms it.
• Doorbell ; (we will develop a doorbell in the future) if you have “Smart Doorbell”, whenever the doorbell is pressed, the Switch will mimic a doorbell and blink the lights.
• Night Modus : the presence detection will only switch the lights, if it’s in the Night Modus.

As we’re developing several other Meek devices, that will seemingly interact with each other, to truly create a smart house !

The possibilities are endless as the community is able to contribute and able to add extra functionality to our devices !

That looks nice and to be honest, I have more confidence in such a design with those well-known Hi-link power supplies than the ones included in the Sonoff's.
How much amps can these triacs (I assume) handle?
And it looks like there is room for later versions with more switches.

I was thinking about these switches lately and I guess there is also a market for these with 2 or 3 tip switch inputs, but only 1 switching output, since you can add switches near the consumers and very often still want to switch via the domotica system and not directly switching something at the position where these are mounted.
Or perhaps have multiple switch inputs to switch the same. (lights on while presence detected + lights on continuously)

Main priority is safety!
I have several devices in my house including the rooms of my children (they like the Neopixel Candle – Color Fader  function ).
We have built several line of defenses to keep the devices safe to operate, despite missing certifications.
I (and many others) have good experiences with HLK-PM01 and it also delivers a stable power output.

For Meek MP1, I have switches from THT triacs to SMD triacs, currently it’s equipped with the BT136S, that should be able to carry 4 Amps. I have conducted test and they operate well even on high loads. Despite the theoretical high switching power, I will rate them for max. 350 Watt.

I have a 2 touch and 3 touch version in operations also, these are equipped with 2 or 3 triacs.
I have also a variant with 1 touch button, with 3 triac outputs to control home ventilation units.

In my kitchen, I have a Meek MP2(bastard version for my own use), with one touch button with 2 triac outputs. The RWCL sensor is so accurate that we do not manually switch the kitchen lights anymore. The touch button is merely to switch our garden lights. So the Doppler switches the kitchen lights and the touch button operates the garden light.

The beauty of Meek is that it’s equipped with ESPEasy !
The user is able to decide how the device reacts on a specific input. And that’s all because of you, the developpers of ESPEasy !
Thank you for all the time, efforts and energy you put into this project !

TD-er, I will PM you my phone number, , I hope that we can meet so I can personally hand over a Meek MP1 to you, for testing purposes.

hi,
what about installation schema ?
Do this required Live + neutral or it could be powered by one wire (as VHome 433mhz wall switches) ? Thank yo

To ensure stability, we have chosen to use a Neutral wire also. So you need Live, Neutral and switching wires to operate these switches.
