I’m looking for a Sonoff alternative that will not void my home insurance when built into a wall. My requirements are:
- Be able to use the existing wall switch (like the Sonoff can wire it to a GPIO pin and keep it working as before)
- Allowed in US (MA) electrical code
- MQTT controllable (or other integration with Home Assistant)
- No cloud required!
I like Sonoff because I can reflash it to remove its dependency on a working internet connection. I’m less happy with it because, since it’s not certified, it will cause my home insurance to void the insurance if something bad were to happen.
I don’t mind if it’s more expensive but I do mind walled gardens. A walled garden I can hack my way out of is perfectly fine
