A new product that would be very useful would be an Inching /Self-Locking WiFi Wireless Switch with 2 leads that could be connected to something such as a reed switch that would report back the status as being open or closed. This would make a simple WiFi device that could be used on items such as a garage door opener. I use a Itching /Self-Locking WiFi Wireless Switch now to control my opener but having the reporting feature would be very beneficial.
I would agree.
This seems a great idea and implementation, if only it worked with ewelink. Itead should get on it.
I did put in a ticket in back in January -
Here is a simple solution. Anyone with in depth knowledge of the sonoff can advice if there is a way to trigger a point on the sonoff to do this
Its a very simple implementation which ITEAD could do. Hard wire a reed switch onto the board so that if the circuit is closed then the switch is off - garage closed. When you trigger the garage to open the reed switch open circuits and the switch is shown as on - garage open. If someone manually closes the door, the reed switch closes and triggers the sonoff to off state. - door closed.
I attach a diagram. Can anyone build this into Ewelink/Sonoff without flashing?
Hi ITEAD. THIS IS A GREAT IDEA . WHEN YOU IMPLEMENT THE REED SENSOR SONOFF BASIC AND SV. THIS IS GOOD FOR GARAGE DOOR , GATES , ETC. WE CAN DO THIS NOW BY FLASHING A CUSTOM FIRMWARE . BUT ALL OF US WILL BE GLAD TO USE YOUR EWELINK APP. WE ALL WANT TO KEEP THE FACTORY FIRMWARE.
I HOPE SOMEONE FROM ITEAD WILL BE SMART TO SEE THE POTENTIAL IN THIS UPGRADE
It would also be nice to be able to adjust the length of the pulse (i.e. to a specified number of milliseconds) for a baud new range of possible uses.
