Re: SONOFF TOUCH - Did you see it?

Hi Guys,

I've been looking at these since they came out, but I live in the UK and we don't have Live and Neutral in the wall switch socket. Has anyone found a way to run these in the UK?

Regards

Re: Only publish on change

You can always use the LEVEL plugin from the playground with regards to the publish, it should only send the changes unless you have set the DELAY variable in the device. This will send out the status every (60) seconds for example if the delay is set to 60. This is useful to initialise items after ...

Re: Displaying values from MQTT in LCD display?

Hi.

Search for 'MQTT Import'. It's an add-on which allows you to subscribe to MQTT topics and use them locally.

I use it to bring up a Temperature Setpoint on an OLED display for a heating controller.

Re: Nextion display plugin

Hi everyone. So glad this has been developed. I am going to replace my previous incarnation of Heating Thermostat (using a sonoff TH) with this Nextion. I have used Scargills PCB and screen design (modified) with a relay board and small PSU from a phone charger. The advantage of Scargills board is t...

Re: Nextion display plugin

Hi Everyone. Really pleased to see this topic getting some hits. As BertB says the Nextion is programmable and you set buttons to do things like send a string to the serial port. It also receives data and changes values / image states, etc. to make the display seem interactive. Basically what we nee...

Re: New ESP gadget

Hi all. I'm using lots of these Sonoff devices (4 and 5 pin) and for the most they have been solid little machines. However after months of running OK, one by one they stopped responding to MQTT and I had to reboot them. All of them. Is there a counter, or memory leak or something that would cause t...

Is there an existing addon which can send / receive serial data and process commands like GPIO/12/1, etc

OK. I found a source for $7, including shipping. So unless I want to order 5 units this is cheaper. In Domoticz I was able to control the LED, and pick up on the pushbutton. So far so good. Now for the next step: can I control the relay and the LED from the same device? This would need me to put tw...

Hi.

Re: Publishing GPIO state via MQTT on bootup and timer

Hi.

Can you give me a sample rule which publishes the switch status or gpio status every 5 minutes?

I can't seem to get it work and there's no documentation on the 'publish' option in the rules section.

Many thanks, Andy.
