Mount Sonoff inside photocell cap.

Here is an idea for ITEAD and others to think about.  I bought what is called a shorting cap that mounts where a photo control normally plugs into an outdoor light.  This is one of the tall profile models.

I removed the shorting jumper, did a little metal work, plastic work, soldering, and hot gluing and mounted the PC board from a Sonoff Basic inside.  With the switch wired to the line, neutral, and load I now have a WiFi controlled light.

Anyhow, it is just an idea I though worth mentioning.  It would be easy to manufacture these things and installing them on the light is a breeze.  To go back to regular photocell just swap it out.
