those black wires are neutrals (or very well should fcken be). I dont really mean to be funny though but if you aren't really sure about this kind of basic its prob not best to play around?
I hear you. Best to be safe. I'm just treading carefully with this. I want to be 100% sure before I attempt any connections. I will test them with a multimeter. Hoping to DIY else I will get my electrician in.

Would like some insight as to how the wires should be connected to the Shelly device.

You might experience problems with using a 1 for a ventilation fan automation though,
Motors generate power when turned off which will interfere with the relay's ability to close circuit as it lacks reverse power protection

Send an email to help@shellyza.cloud

Latest I received was:


There are now online available from Nology too:
So you can compare to:
https://eiferer.co.za/collections/shelly <-- best online shop prices
https://www.geewiz.co.za/search?controller=search&s=shelly just above eiferer in price
https://www.takealot.com/all?filter=Brand:Shelly <-- most expensive online

But shellyza above in the quote is still best price and only R50 nationwide shipping and they have more devices available.
Check out robofactory. They have better prices and are super reliable.

Procedure for wiring would be per the instructions leaflet in the box.

Neutral to N
Live to L
Appliance (output to O)
Ignore the small + & - as this is intended for DC wiring
Thanks a lot for the feedback.

Any black Friday special @shellyza
@ShellySA :)

So many specials on shop.shelly.cloud right now. My shooting-star wish is to pay there (in Euro) and ShellySA handles shipping and import taxes as a secondary "sale". I've already imported three times this year...

Hi All, @ShellySA

Is there a wiring diagram for a Shelly 1 for a 2-way light switch i.e. 1 light controlled by two light switches and how to wire it?

Attached photo for reference. It's the bottom switch in the photo.

Any help will much appreciated.

Thanks!

That black wire doesn't look like its being used as a neutral.

Hi Guys - has anyone bought from shop.shelly.cloud ? I'm curious on how their 'Standard International Shipping" is sent - any experiences?

Yes. They use DHL Express. Shipping is quick and painless, albeit not the cheapest. You only pay customs/import-tax a few days after the order.
