I am with a problem, here in my city, our energy is 110v, it´s one phase and one neutral. My sonoof touch has 3 socket, Lin,Lout an Nin.
How can I solve this?
I only have two cabes 1 phase and 1 neutral, I tried put phase into the Lin and neutral in Nin, but it's wasn't working. I tried jump Nin with Lout but the ligth turn on for a seccond and turn off in the sequence.
Anybody may help me?
I'm also in the same boat. Only 2 wire connection to my existing toggle switch.
Any ideas will be welcomed....
The same here, do you guys figured it out?
Lin is live in and Nin is neutral in, the neutral wire should be pulled up to the lamp with the Lout wire.
Are you sure you know enough to fiddle with electricity without killing anyone?
Hahaha, At least for me I was working in an previous installation that hardly followed any electrician codes. I checked the wiring and the issue was that the old switch was cutting the neutral wire going back, so this can result in that behavior (as the neutral was hot) and the sudden spike when turned on coupled with no load down the line will trigger some kind of shortcut protection in the Sonoff Touch (either that or just a minishorcut), resetting the device as soon as it turns the lights on. With a common switch cutting the neutral works, but no more with a sophisticated device.
here is my two cents,
If you have two wires it is very likely that one is Live and other one is going to the light. (switched circuit)
your wiring regulations do not require neutral to run parallel with live.
to use this switch you must have 3 wires. or get natural from somewhere near by. (this would probably violate all known wiring codes, and will mess up with your RCCB
I would strongly suggest not to mess up with live 110~240V.
Okay, disclaimer - I am not Sonoff Support, but
If the Sonoff documentation is insufficient,
Please have a certified experienced Electrician do the task for you.
An "I didn't know" will not be of much comfort when
- someone gets injured or damage to property occurs.
It is your duty to know in advance of any installation
- and if you do not know, it is within your ability and duty to delegate
But such ignorance will cause someone to be hurt.
- surely no reasonable person could possibly desire that.
Hi, I have two cables too ( phase and neutral ). How can I install this wall switch?
I can try connect with phase, neutral and ground. Is it possible?
@nulda - if you must ask, you don't have the knowledge to do so.
Please get an electrician to do for you.
- such could save your life, and property.
I know, but I asked how to connect it. I switched off circuit in wall switch and then I connect wall switch.
So if you know how to connect it, write it please.
Sorry ... when documentation is insufficient
I refuse to contribute to your injury or your house burning down
Please have professional do
