They work really well, though I have had a relay fail in one of the extensions, which was a bit disappointing. None of these support power monitoring though I believe they do support modifying their power-on behaviour, which I'll investigate one day.
Found this no-name two-channel no-neutral switch module on eBay before Christmas. Turns out it's a Tuya.
IKEA Repeater for scale, this thing is tiny, with a removable clip and a capacitor in the box to mitigate flicker if necessary. Very nice. Smaller than the Samotech modules I normally use. I've ended up with this because Samotech don't do a two-channel no-neutral and it's brilliant.
Did you ever get any of the spotlights that Lidl sold? These lights had 3x zigbee GU10 bulbs and came with a 4 button remote control. The lights added ok to HE but the remote control only added as a 'device' when paired. If the driver was swapped to 'philips dimmer button controller v2' then you could use it but only one of the four buttons worked. It would be nice if all 4 buttons worked.
Unfortunately not, I've found no power reporting in the messages from these devices. If you're in the UK you'd be better off with a Salus SP600. My driver for it supports power reporting and you could set up rules to do as you require.
Ah, you mean this one! That's my other account on here; yes, I still have the remote (it was in the box with their Tuya hub) but no luck getting it to do anything useful due to the points raised in that thread.
I assume that single button only works due to it being a built-in driver, which likely has access to things our user drivers don't. Maybe. You've got further than me in having it do something anyway!
I have tried the driver for the USB Extension Lead after it did not work with the "Nue switch" driver as proposed by others.
But I have the same problem with both drivers: all buttons always switch on or off at the same time. They even do this no matter if I click "on" or "off". So in fact they all just toggle at the same time no matter what.
I have tried to comment out some stuff in the driver code but no effect at all.
I have tried 2 different Extension Leads, just to make sure, same effect/
We will need the complete device ‘fingerprint’. Switch temporarily the driver to the HE inbuilt driver named Device’. Then click on ‘Get Info’ button and copy/paste here the fingerprint Info log, that should appear in the life logs.
Hi there. In regards to the USB Extension, I have installed your drivers but all sockets switch together and not individually. The main device is Tuya TY-06338 and the three switches default to Generic Component Switch.
What did I miss?????
Kind regards Chris
There may have been a firmware change which alters how the individual sockets are addressed, or it could be running an older firmware. You could try pairing it with a Tuya hub and seeing if it will update, but other than that I can't really troubleshoot it, I'm afraid.
