a newbe here

i have a sonoff basicR2 and sonoff socket S26
i would like either for my emonpi to turn on a pump when i have excess power generation

i can connect to the devises wifi direct ITEAD xxxxx with password 12345678 does not respond does not respond
do they need to be reflashed and are there any details to do this
or is there a simpler way

can you help

What are those IP addresses, please?

I suspect the easiest may be to have all devices on the same wifi network, the sensors reporting over mqtt and then emoncms demandshaper doing the switching, but I have no experience with such things yet.

Hi Michael, I suggest you have a look at tasmota firmware for sonoff devices. Many control options are available for your integration then!


From the documentation I thought that i need to configure the sonoff switch so that the demand shaper can see it
Above are the ip addresses that i should see the devise on to configure

How do i configure the sonoff switch

If you want to use the sonoff, you have to reflash it with the emonesp firmware.
Instructions and source code can be found here:

But this would mean opening the device and connecting it to a programmer !
Some sample procedure can be found here : Sonoff S26 Smart Socket - Tasmota

i am trying setup the devises on the wifi nework
the above are the suggested address to access the devices to configure them

appricated and i will try

i hoped that i could do it remotely
