The "Sonoff BRIDGE RF"Of ITEAD is a component of the family ITEAD Sonoff Smart Home dedicated to receiving and sending radio signals to 433mhz.
This device, thanks to theappeWeLink location of ITEAD, allows the user to "appmake "radio codes." (from remote controls or other sources) and, through theapp and the component, retransmit up to several 16.
Il Sonoff Bridge RF is a component with limited dimensions (about five centimeters by five) powered by microUSB, therefore with very low absorption. The component is configured by default.app eWeLink and, once entered into profirst Wifi, is appanointed able to intercept and make his radio codes to 433mhz.
The hastnameof the Sonoff BRIDGE RF with the magnetic sensor Sonoff DW-1 allows you to create a rudimentary anti-intrusion home automation system.
Il Sonoff BRIDGE RF it is natively compatible with the proman appeWeLink management message, as well as with voice assistants Google Assistant e Amazon Alexa. In addition to the features offered by theappis unable to do much else.
|Detailed evaluation (original version, no reprogrammato - se riprogrammato, consider full marks in terms of compatibility and integrability):|
|Il Sonoff RF Bridge it's a great device, but basic is bound in the profirst ecosystem rappresent of the specific from his appeWeLink communication. Therefore, it is not natively integrable to any third party system such as a personale HUB. Nevertheless, from completely closed system what is the Sonoff BRIDGE RF can become a completely open system through the adoption of proProtocol MQTT, which makes it immediately compatible with Home Assistant, Homebridge and any MQTT client.|
To get this result it is necessary to modify the firmware of the component itself (read the disclaimer) and install, in place of the original firmware, a completely rewritten version for this purpose. This alternative (free) firmware can be chosen between two proOpen Source jets dedicated, il projet Espurna e il projet Sonoff-Tasmota.
Through the riprogrammation with one of the two firmware mentioned above, the Sonoff BRIDGE RF takes on a new new on our network: through the adoption of the proMQTT tocollo and the combined use of plugins like "homebridge-mqtt-sonoff-receiver"Or" homebridge-mqtt-sonoff-receiver ", it will be possible to integrate it completely with domotic areas such as those based on HUB personal.
At riproming of the firmware of Sonoff we have available a dedicated guide.
|ATTENZIONE: remember that there is on our FORUM community an ad hoc section dedicated to Sonoff (and more generally to devices ESP8266), for any doubt, question, information on the specific merit of these components.|
