Re: Meek Wifi wall switch ESP8266

Good point, for now, the only protection I've installed was a glass fuse on the 230V side. From the testing I've done locally in The Netherlands, this was adequate for the time being as our net 230V is "pretty clean and stable". For the future Meek switches, I most likely will be adding more protec...
