ITEAD Sonoff Mini

"HASS-sonoff-ewelink"Is a custom component (hence a component no official) of Home Assistant useful todirect integration of family members ITEAD "Sonoff Smart Home”.

As is known, the most consolidated practice is to equip the components based on SOC ESP8266 (how, for theappgreasy, most ITEADs) di alternative firmware useful to provide the user with greater freedom of configuration and a certain integration (usually via MQTT) with any personale HUB and similar. If you don't want to deal with it la proreimbursement orderprofirmware weight, you can use this component, always keeping in mind that:

  • integration is guaranteed based to the compatibility matrix (model / version of the original firmware);
  • the integration, when functioning, does not always guarantee the census of all the functions of the integrated component (eg the Sonoff POW R2 with 3.3.0 firmware);
  • the integration uses the ITEAD cloud as a means, therefore in the absence of internet connection, integration stop working.

The integration, as mentioned, uses the ITEAD cloud: in practice the component Sonoff connects to it through the previous configuration of the usual app mobile eWeLink (used to configure and manage family members Sonoff) is Home Assistant, through this component, does the same, authenticating to the cloud with the same credentials as theapp eWeLink: this "bridge" connection will therefore allow theHUB to "see" the component and then to integrate it.
