I finally got my SONOFF mini and got around to installing it.
I was lucky in that the switch box I installed it in was:
- A deep box
- Neutral was available
Although my installation was easy I can see where this might be a tight fit in single boxes with the typical wad of neutral wires and you need the neutral.
I don’t know if the antenna must be outside a metal box. You can stick it to the outlet cover.
I used a stranded wire (from old power cord) to connect the switch as it does not need to carry the loads currently. This gave me more space in the box and made insering the box and switch easier.
The switch on/off label and position is now irrelevant as the power will toggle based on what was used to turn it off last.
I use eWeLink for the control app and have a Google home hub.
