Yesterday I stumbled across the Mirabella range of WiFi products at KMart. I was standing in store and thought ‘oh well it labells itself as Google Home Assist and Alexa compatible… maybe there’s a Home Assist plugin for it’.
So that led (pun sort of intentional) me to discovering it’s a generic device made by Tuya, and there’s an active project to convert the internal firmare over to the Sonoff-Tasmota stack. Basically we’re talking an AU/NZ standard ESP8266 enclose LED ring.
The documentation on the Tuya Convert is a little light on the ground for the Mirabella range and doesn’t seem to cover the power plug at all. So I thought I’d sign up here and post my findings along the way as I proceed to hack on them, then push upstream. The idea being that I’m rather more likely to encounter Australian home automation hackers with an Australian KMart nearby here than over on the upstream projects.
Just getting ready to flash my first bulb. I’ll take notes and update this thread as I go. As I’m looking at covering a particular brand and not a specific area (lighting, home control) I’m not sure where to Categorise this thread. If someone can point me in the right direction that’d be grand.
