Is it possible to activate and deactivate the Sonoff by Wifi but without using the app?
The WiFi communication protocol is published?
Greetings and thank you very much.
The local switch can turn Sonoff on or off. But other functions needs the App. We haven't decided whether to publish the protocol. But some engineers now working on MQTT project and we will post about it when it is ready.
Very cool to hear MQTT is comming!!!
Thank you! We will try our best to adjust.
Until an alternate connection other then the cloud is added these units won't gain the market share they deserve. To many people have been burnt with cloud based apps.
The protocol needs to be published then iTlead doesn't have to waste time and effort on app developement
Once/if a protocol is released a PC app would shortly follow I'm sure, and Itlead wouldn't need to create it.
If not a dedicated program I'm sure other Home Automation programs would add support.
I know I'd be adding support to my programs.
Hi! Peter is doing the MQTT project for Sonoff with his friend, it turns out to be successful. You can join him or inquire about the details. Here's how it goes: http://tech.scargill.net/sonoff-to-mains-block/
I need the direct communication. Sometimes the server is not responding and than I can't switch my devices.
Has anybody put an customized (e.g. ESPEasy) on the sonoff?
Will we see MQTT support?
