In the past I bought myself a Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise Running WiFi Wireless Switch Model: IM160601001 to control, in a case (see picture) a roller shutter. I was perfectly happy with this product and was willing to buy more for my other shutters. But then found out it was retired. Since then only 1 shutter is controlled by my smartphone.
Now I read about the Sonoff T1 EU: 2 Gang WiFi RF Smart Wall Touch Light Switch. This might be the solution to my problem. In my opinion I could use the 2-gang version to replace the Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise. There is only 1 catch. When using gang 1 the power to gang 2 should automatically be cut off. And when using gang 2 the power to gang 1 should automatically be cut off as well of course. Would this be possible?
Thank you up front for your help.
I understood what you meant about the 2 operating buttons. But not "If I switch off both of them, it will stop at the current state.", Now you wrote "And if I want to stop the shutter I just have to press the actual button again".
You use the relay as a mechanical protection? That is in case of a malfunctioning scene function? Why not directly using the relay?
I left the scene function out and use only the relay.
I still feel that my solution suits me best. 1 Button for up/down and 1 button for stop. Furthermore, what you use as "protection", the relay, is my first choice. In this case I feel, less is more.
I have tried several times to answer Aaldert his question, but nothing works.
Hi Aaldert, Sorry for my late response. When I look at your comment I can tell you wrote it over 1 week ago, but I only received a mail last night.
I’m still using the relay. Everything still works like a charm. I bought the relay from a helpful man in the Netherlands. Check out THERE WAS A LINK HERE. Later I bought another 25 pieces. You can send me a mail if you want; henry at hehahu.nl. Regards, Henry
Hyperlink en Nederlands een probleem?
"But not "If I switch off both of them, it will stop at the current state.", Now you wrote "And if I want to stop the shutter I just have to press the actual button again"."
This is the same. When you switch on one of them, it will switch off the othes by scene therefore you have to press the switch which is On (only one can be On by scene). Like the old fashioned shutter switches.
Whit this I can say to Google assistant to Shutter up or Shutter down even if it is in the middle.
But I thing both solution (I mean yours and mine) is a good solution. For me the relay is needed only for the ensurance (I don'T trust in eWelink in 100% percent, but even when I'll turn to home assistant, az an ELectrical engineer I trust more in HW than SW :D)
FaBRiK, about this:
"Make a scene in eWelink to switch off the L2 when L1 is on and vice versa and also a scene to just switch off both."
You already try it?
Some time ago I try it with the Two Pow Sonoff and this was not supported. Then, I ask to itead if it was supported in the wall switch used in this topic and the answer was negative.
However the eWelink app has been improve and it seems much more faster now.
Maybe the scenario involving two different outputs of the same hardware piece is now supported, but it should be tested :)
Allereerst excuses voor mijn late reactie. Ik had mailtje met jouw bericht gezien, maar toen deed mijn pc wat raar en na het opnieuw opstarten helemaal vergeten. Nu kom ik dat mailtje weer tegen.
Ik ben een echte leek op dit gebied, maar ik kan redelijk goed beredeneren wat mogelijk zou moeten kunnen zijn m.b.t. bepaalde dingen. Dan heb ik wel hulp nodig van technische mensen om te toetsen wat ik voor ogen heb haalbaar is ;-).
Dus moet ik bekennen dat ik niet weet wat homekit is. Kun je me hier iets over vertellen?
