In the past I bought myself a Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise Running WiFi Wireless Switch Model: IM160601001 to control, in a case (see picture) a roller shutter. I was perfectly happy with this product and was willing to buy more for my other shutters. But then found out it was retired. Since then only 1 shutter is controlled by my smartphone.
Now I read about the Sonoff T1 EU: 2 Gang WiFi RF Smart Wall Touch Light Switch. This might be the solution to my problem. In my opinion I could use the 2-gang version to replace the Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise. There is only 1 catch. When using gang 1 the power to gang 2 should automatically be cut off. And when using gang 2 the power to gang 1 should automatically be cut off as well of course. Would this be possible?
Thank you up front for your help.
In the most perfect situation would it, in addition to the above, possible to cut off the power fully for both 1 and 2 simultaneously.
Thank you for your help.
Using scenes won't be an option I think. At the moment, using the Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise Running WiFi Wireless Switch Model: IM160601001, I can close/open the shutter using the app or manually by pushing the button on the device itself. There is always on 1 of the 2 outgoing connections power. Never on both at the same time. This is very important. I don't think this will be possible for the Sonoff T1 EU: 2 Gang WiFi RF Smart Wall Touch Light Switch using scenes.
Someone with some knowlegde will be able, I think, to "tell" (write firmware|) the Sonoff T1 EU: 2 Gang WiFi RF Smart Wall Touch Light Switch to switch between the 2 outgoing connections and preferably write an option for cutting off power for both outgoing connections as well.
Certainly I am willing to write my own firmware, but I lack the expertise. I wouldn't know where to start. I have never done this before.
I have looked at the 4Ch (pro) and, as you already point out, I think it is overkill. It is too big (dimensions) and I would need one for every shutter, not using it's full potential.
I would love to learn and know more about new firmware, but wouldn't know
where to start.
Connecting 2 shutters to a single 4Ch Pro is only possible if these shutters are located next to one another.
A 4Ch Pro is approximately twice the size of a Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise. It's quite big.
I don't need a RF remote. Via the app and manually would be great.
The 4Ch Pro isn't cheap. The price is USD 28.00. The price of the Motor Clockwise/Anticlockwise was USD 7.00.
I asked iTead as well. This is what they replied:
"When using gang 1 the power to gang 2 should automatically be cut off. And when using gang 2 the power to gang 1 should automatically be cut off as well of course
It is possible if you use scene function.
For cut off both 1 and 2,also can use scene function.
It need Internet when use scene function."
EB already mentioned this and this would be great of course. The problem only is, I don't understand a thing of this "scene".
It is obvious that something went wrong when you look at all the replies
above. I have been trying for 2 days and now suddenly they all appear
hahaha. I will try and remove them.
Thanks for the explanation. The arduino is just to play araound with a bit, is that correct?
I have been trying numerous times to place a post, but it didn't work. Finally I saw 20 I think ;-). 1 Of them showed "Miranda en Henry", I don't know how. Miranda is my wife and "en" means "and". It's dutch.
I have several other Sonoff devices and have been trying to figure out how this "scene" works. So far I wasn't very succesfull.
I understand fully what you mean. With scene you don't alter anything fysically. Via internet/scene the device knows what to do. This is a risk. In case of both outputs having active voltage, the motor of the shutter will be destroyed I think. In this situation the motor will get active voltage on "closing" and "opening" at the same time. I can imagine a motor won't be happy with that ;-)
