One of the relays on my Sonoff 4Ch R3 Pro seems to have malfunctioned.
Looks like it's relatively easy to remove and solder a new one in.
Any idea where I can source the relay?

Communica? RS Components? You might not find the exact relay but if you can match specs it might be fine (and you might need to do some modifications to the PCB to make it fit)

So I thought I was very bright to use the Sonoff inching switch (https://www.smartkit.co.za/product/1-channel-inching-self-locking-wifi-wireless-switch-5v-12v/?attribute_voltage=5V/12V) to operate my gate motor remotely for visitors. I did this by allowing the sonoff to bridge the remote button on the Centurion D5 gate motor. It works very well. I press the button in the eWelink app and the sonoff "pushes" the button for 1 second and the gate opens. Push it again and it closes.

Little did I know that when the sonoff looses power and powers up again it momentarily latches the relay as part of the booting cycle in the process opening up the gate. (The power on state IS set to OFF in the eWelink software).

Thing is, I had this set up for more than a year and only notices it now. Could this have been introduced via a new firmware update. I am pretty sure it wasn't always like this.

Can somebody else confirm this as normal?

Thanks

Hi Goobie. I am interested to know how you resolved this issue. I am having this issue with false triggers. I am running Ewelink v4.17.1 and the Sonoff Channel1 is linked to my Centurion A10 (runs on 230V) which I have on my inverter backup. Power on state is Off. I had numerous recent issues then disconnected my beams and redid all the wiring connections. I thought the issue was resolved but a few weeks later (today) I caught it doing this again...

Anybody know of a smart outdoor motion detector?

Sonoff or preferably smartlife/tuya wifi options.
