I have seven flashed Sonoff basic switches running on my Home network. I set this up using the Home Automation course. Is there a way to flash the new Sonoff mini switch to use it on the the same network?
Hello Kent, I haven’t used the SONOFF mini, but you can definitely flash it with custom code (you just need to assign and control the right GPIO).
I’ve found this detailed guide that covers exactly how to flash it:
I hope that helps,
Rui, thanks for the reply. I will keep you posted. These little guys are really handy as they can easily be installed in a standard (US) switch enclosure.
Rui, I read over this procedure and it appears to be wrong for me for several reasons. First of all, they are using it to flash the device with Tasmota firmware. I do not use Tasmota for anything. I decided that your simpler method in the Home Automation course was best for me and I have stayed with it since. I am just too old to start over with a new system now!!! The reddit procedure seems to have a lot of pitfalls that are unexplained or blamed on Win10/pc issues and never really fully resolved. I find it ridiculous that a person would be expected to keep trying another computer until you find one that works!!! And in trying all these different things, you have to face the fact that one of these trials may render the MINI useless. In addition, I want to stay with code that I can use within the Arduino IDE.
