Sonoff touch!

Hello everyone,


I am with a problem, here in my city, our energy is 110v, it´s one phase and one neutral. My sonoof touch has 3 socket, Lin,Lout an Nin.

How can I solve this?

I only have two cabes 1 phase and 1 neutral, I tried put phase into the Lin and neutral in Nin, but it's wasn't working. I tried jump Nin with Lout but the ligth turn on for a seccond and turn off in the sequence.


Anybody may help me?

I'm also in the same boat. Only 2 wire connection to my existing toggle switch.


Any ideas will be welcomed....



The same here, do you guys figured it out?

Lin is live in and Nin is neutral in, the neutral wire should be pulled up to the lamp with the Lout wire.

Are you sure you know enough to fiddle with electricity without killing anyone?

Hahaha, At least for me I was working in an previous installation that hardly followed any electrician codes. I checked the wiring and the issue was that the old switch was cutting the neutral wire going back, so this can result in that behavior (as the neutral was hot) and the sudden spike when turned on coupled with no load down the line will trigger some kind of shortcut protection in the Sonoff Touch (either that or just a minishorcut), resetting the device as soon as it turns the lights on. With a common switch cutting the neutral works, but no more with a sophisticated device.

here is my two cents,

If you have two wires it is very likely that one is Live and other one is going to the light. (switched circuit)

your wiring regulations do not require neutral to run parallel with live.

to use this switch you must have 3 wires. or get natural from somewhere near by. (this would probably violate all known wiring codes, and will mess up with your RCCB

I would strongly suggest not to mess up with live 110~240V.

Can anyone makes an wire scheme for sonoff touch - an image? Please!

Okay, disclaimer - I am not Sonoff Support, but


If the Sonoff documentation is insufficient,

   Please have a certified experienced Electrician do the task for you.


An "I didn't know" will not be of much comfort when

  - someone gets injured or damage to property occurs.


It is your duty to know in advance of any installation

 - and if you do not know, it is within your ability and duty to delegate


But such ignorance will cause someone to be hurt.

 - surely no reasonable person could possibly desire that.

Any ideas guys? Did you reach to a solution? I have a grounding wire, how about using it instead of the neutral? Anyone with more knowledge than me can figure it out please?

Copy paste the above because it is important.

 

I dont work for Itead or affiliated with them.

If you are asking the above question, i strongly suggest NOT to install or modify the unit.

this will be dangerous to you, your family, or the property. 

110VAC or 220VAC is not a joke, it can kill your or harm you badly.

 

you have to understand, what you can do, to save your life, in a situation (if you feel like MacGyver) is very different then, what you can do, for an electrical installation for your property. Even if you dont care about local regulations.

 

I am sorry, This is NOT the answer you want to hear.

=====
If you choose to use earth instead of natural, in theory it should wok.
In theory again the natural line is a big earth somewhere else. we stand on it.
I am sure you can read about the atomic reaction in theory but you dont try it at your home.


In reality it will trip any RCCBs or similar leak detect circuits, Disabling any of these CAN KILL you easily.

 

In reality this will violate any local building, electrical code, in any country that I know.

everybody without the right knowledge how to deal correctly and save with 110/220V should really stay away from such ...

110/220V is nothing to play with ... in worst case you damage your health, you damage the health of others ...

Every half baken knowledge about is dangerous ...

Hi, I have two cables too ( phase and neutral ). How can I install this wall switch?


I can try connect with phase, neutral and ground. Is it possible?


Thanks

@nulda - if you must ask, you don't have the knowledge to do so.


Please get an electrician to do for you.

- such could save your life, and property.

I know, but I asked how to connect it. I switched off circuit in wall switch and then I connect wall switch.


So if you know how to connect it, write it please. 

Sorry ... when documentation is insufficient

  I refuse to contribute to your injury or your house burning down


Please have professional do
