new sonoff:4 channels, espeasy-compatible?

Hi,
it seems that itead becomes our favorite producer of esp-based items.
I just got an advertsiment from sonoff for this one: https://www.itead.cc/sonoff-4ch.html
Is has the ESP8285, documentation says, this is the 8266 with flash onchip. So, can it be used for espeasy?

Re: Support for "Sonoff Pow" (from ITead) with Power Consumption Measurement?

Some weeks ago, I already mentioned this device. The frequency is for espeasy a kind of pulse-count I guessed, but how many pulses can espeasy afford?

Re: Rules & MQTT

Hi,

now I have a static working solution. I first define a timer, in the rules, then I call it via MQTT:

Code: Select all

/myesp/cmd/TimerSet
Now I can start a predefined timer. The only thing thats missing that I like to "inject" the timer-time first before I start it.

Re: New ESP gadget

The sonoff has no sensor for measuring the output wattage. But you can estimate it with calculating the wattage and the switched on time. For example, a light bulb takes 20W while switched on. The swtich-on and off timings you have ready. Maybe this is a shorthand solution. Does not work for a washi...

Re: More Esp-12 Flashing problems

A good idea is always to check the output voltage of the adapters used.
I have such a usb-breadboard adapter and when its switched to 3.3V, I only got 2.7. It was mostly enough for the esp running alone, but never enough for a sensor.
So, everybody should have the voltage meter ready.

Re: wiki section for elementary tips: how to get esp stable?

Good idea.

Another tipp is to use an RC-grid for the connection of CH_PD. A 4.7k resistor and 0,1uF. I have done that and its much more stable now and can better start.
Thats my mileage for this week with such a setup.
Uptime: 5600 minutes
