I have 50+ Sonoff power devices installed. I am on my “second lap” of using Sonoff. I discovered Sonoff Basic and Dual’s several years ago, and went nuts. I like their features and cheap price better than one else products. And unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention. I overlooked their hidden gems. The RFR2 and RFR3 Basic WiFi Switches. AMAZING DEVICES.
When I said I am on my second lap, I mean, after having 30+ Sonoff power on/off devices installed, I replaced e-v-e-r-y single one of them. I started buying the RFR2 and RFR3 Basic WiFi Switch. These two switches have all the features of the Baisc and Dual BUT also have a RF module. I can use generic 433MHz remotes and the Sonoff RM433 Remote to also turn stuff on and off.
I have the RFR2 and RFR3’s EVERYWHERE. Here’s a sample. On my Echo 4th gen and Echo Dot 4th gen power adapter. These two device have a bug. The Person Detection" feature sort of goes lame/dull or null and doesn’t work, until you restart it. So, I put a RFR2 on all of them (22) just to restart the Echo and Dots. I have a RFR2 on every TV, (6). Timed routines, voice, Flic 2 buttons, and my 8 button RM433 Remote, and eWelink scenes from NFC tags all can start/stop my TVs. All the bedroom and living room lamps have a RFR2. The Coffee pot has a RFR2. The Garage Door Opener has a RFR2. (Mine sometimes needs to have power removed and plugged back in, because it hiccups and the light stays on. So, its gets a RFR2. My shop Vac hangs from my garage ceiling and the hose hangs down. How do I turn it on? RM433 Remote, on the wall powers the Shop Vac. The three small fans mounted on the garage walls are powered by a RFR2. Everywhere I can put a RFR2, I have put one. AND then, I replaced every wall switch except the two way switches. EVERY other place including two attics have Sonoff T2 RF versions of the wall switch. All controlled by a RM433 Remote. Living room has two RM433 Remotes, Garage wall, pulldown attic steps, office desk, even the master bath room has a RM433 remote to control lights. EVERY thing is within reach.
I have two ceiling fans that have the Sonoff Dual installed. This allows separate switches for the fan and ceiling light. Thinking of replacing the Dual with two RFR2’s so I also have the RF remote side to turn the fan and light off/on.
Have I explained how lazy I am? I am pretty lazy. And the best part, all these devices are 99% reliable. I have problems right now with two RFR2 and one T2 Wall Switch. swapped out the RFR2s for two others. Worth few dollars for each device. LOVE THEM.
