My D1 Dimmer Module, controlled by Android app eweLink, switches on its own - apart from the timers set in the app. I already reinstalled and paired the D1 module without success.
Pairing had be difficult, too. My 9th attempt in Quick Pairing mode was successful, but did not solve the problem of randomly switching.
Cheers Robbz, thats one of the many things I (and a few others) have tried; at best it seems to be an unreliable fix, as whilst it may work for you and a few others, it certainly doesn't work for all of us. I am still in contact with ITEAD support to try to get a proper fix.
I’ve had them de-paired and re-paired seven or eight times, and with pulling the circuit fuse to re-power it to enable re-pairing, it got really tedious, especially when they don't always re-pair first time. I think it even worked for a day when I did it one time, but them really p!ssed me off when it started again; I too thought it had worked, but it was playing with me.
For anyone experiencing the problem, by all means try it, but dont be too surprised if it still does its own switching, and please post your results - the more information on success and failure we get, the better we can help resolve this properly.
I have the same issue. Two Sonoff D1 controlling a led lamp and sometimes lights up by itself. I tried multiple configurations but always the same issue.
SONOFF guys! are you there?
Jeroen -> Yay, glad it worked for you too :)
I havent had any ghost switching for several weeks now, but I have noticed one of the dimmers doesnt always respond to the remote control. That is solved by holding the buttons down for about half a second. One dimmer seems to respond with just a very short "click" on the switch, but the other seems to need to receive the signal for longer.
It is such a shame they are not more robust in set-up and operation, as the circuit design, isolation and protection is all actually pretty good. I am also impressed with the latest app, as you can now set scenes to turn lights on at sunset at ANY location. I have mine set to come on when the sun sets in Amsterdam, which is about 15 minutes East of where the dimmers are, so the lights come on BEFORE it gets too dark.
I am using them with home-assistant and google assistant...
The guys from Sonoff do not want to fix the problem of turning on the D1 Dimmer by ghosts, they suggest that you contact the seller of these lame, expensive products for support, and the seller does not care about this problem. The seller for the sale of dimmers received income and was happy to fuck up this problem and Sonoff, they are already bought by those who do not know about this problem... I wonder if other products from Sonoff are the same expensive poop?
Quick question to anyone who still has the ghost switching problem; how far apart were your D1, RF433 (if used) and Wifi hub, both
- when initially paired together, and also
- during operation, if different?
I’m working on a theory about the gain control in the RF circuit, which might be linked to the distance between components during either pairing or operation.
Excellent info Dr Kildare :). Thanks. When I’ve completed all my tests, and maybe identified a cause, I’ll report my findings. No point going off half-cocked.
