The ITEAD Sonoff TH-16 / 10-TH it is an environmental sensor able, through the connected probe, to detect temperature and humidity. Furthermore it is a intelligent switch, which, through theapplished here eWeLink (available for AppiOS and Google Android) can open / close an 220v circuit, either independently or linked to the temperature / relative humidity parameters detected by the probe. An example of use is to drive a fan which turns on automatically upon reaching a given temperature threshold. A very basic form of automation.
The difference between the two models (TH-16 and TH-10) is in the maximum bearable load, in watts: while the TH-16 is able to withstand up to 3500w, the younger brother TH-10 stops at 2200w.
There are many probes that can be used: they exist for use amphibian (to measure, typically, the temperature of liquids) and that for conventional atmospheric use.
The opening / closing of the output to 220v can be controlled also by pressing the button placed on the body of the component.
Il Sonoff Basic it is natively compatible with the proman appmanagement statement eWeLink, as well as with voice assistants Google Assistant e Amazon Alexa.
|Detailed evaluation (original version, no reprogrammato - se riprogrammato, consider full marks in terms of compatibility and integrability):|
|Il Sonoff TH-16 / TH-10 is 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 Basic 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 Tasmota.
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.|
