Popped the hood on a Bneta Smart Wifi Plug with Power Meter. Photographs for anyone interested...
At first glance, quality looks great and components and wiring also good quality.
Does anyone have a specific guide for the next step flashing with Tasmota?
I overcame that problem with a Home Assistant script that runs a cron every 1 minute to check conditions and send an on or off based on those conditions.Question please for experienced Tasmota people...
I'm using the timer to switch ON a device from 7:00 until 19:00.
Problem seems, when we have load-shedding and power comes back on say at 10:00, the plug does not automatically switch back ON to go back the the timer scheduling, ON until 19:00.
Any ideas what to do so that when power comes back on it will switch ON/OFF according to time scheduling?
I overcame that problem with a Home Assistant script that runs a cron every 1 minute to check conditions and send an on or off based on those conditions.
So some lights stay on whole night, others only at night while the alarm is disarmed and all of them during the day off.
Would need some scripting I suspect, not sure if that is a setting I can change from a Home Assistant automation.
Unfortunately I think this won't fix it. It basically gives you options to say whether it should:
1) Start switched off
2) Start switched on
3) Start switched to whatever it was last (on/off)
4) Toggle -- in other words, if it was on, then turn it off
5) Switch on and stay on (ignore input/external control)
AFAIK the time basically switches on/off when it reaches the exact minute/second -- and not before/after it. Thus if that exact minute/second is not hit due to loadshedding, it just doesn't trigger.
Mine all do except the ultralink on inverter fridge sometimes doesn't. Think its because mesh airties don't have a ups so takes long time to reconnect.And which ones resume the schedule when there was loadshedding? I want to connect these to wall heaters. Dont want the heater to turn on after there was a powercut. Seems like all of these small plugs just turn the power on again and ignored the schedule settings. Sounds like a big hazard to me.
