A quiet, open source, ESP32-based, Wi-Fi-enabled AC outlet relay with Home Assistant compatibility
This project is launching soon.
SmaHoo stands for Smart Home Outlet. It is a high-quality, open source, ESP32-based outlet relay with Wi-Fi support. SmaHoo takes one input, has one output, and relies on a MOSFET instead of a relay.
What really makes SmaHoo "special"? Unlike standard relays, SmaHoo has no annoying clicking, thanks to the clever use of a TRIAC switch that with zero crossing control. Because it is open source, you can built in your own logic and adapt it to your needs.
What Can You Do With SmaHoo?
Place SmaHoo behind the socket for a power outlet in your home, and it makes that outlet "smart." Lights, for example, can be converted easily thanks to their AC input. SmaHoo can be remotely controlled so you can toggle the output via HTTP, MQTT, Google Home, Home assistant, and other such frameworks. Or you can toggle it manually, like a normal switch.
Connect SmaHoo to Home Assistant
Install the device and power it on
Connect SmaHoo to your local Wi-Fi (you can connect to it as an access point)
Enter the MQTT broker details (server, port, optional username and password, etc.)
