Clas Ohlson WiFi Smart Plug

Hi

I am trying to get the WiFi Smart Plug working on HA. I have got information that they are actually Broadlink devices, type: sp2. I can configure the IP address via Clas Ohlson Home app and I can control switch via CO Home app.
I get error Failed to connect to device after restart the HA. My configuration is very simple:
switch:

  • platform: broadlink
    host: 192.168.1.202
    mac: ‘78:0F:77:EB:8B:21’
    type: sp2
    friendly_name: ‘Kokeilu’

Short update: the correct type seem to be sp3.
This works:
Selecting the Services menu:

The service dev tool allows you to call any available service in Home Assistant.

Palvelu
switch.turn_on

Kohde
switch.kokeilu

Service Data (JSON, optional)

{
“entity_id”: “switch.kokeilu”
}
Turn a switch on.
Parameter Description Example
entity_id
Name(s) of entities to turn on switch.living_room

Hello there.
I have the same plug but i can not see anywhere in the app where i can locate the IP adress.
Where did you go to get the Ip?

Have a look at your router discovery - look for broadlink devices on the wifi. “broadlink outlet ***”

Would you mind linking your config entry as it is now if you made it work?

Hi, looking at buying one of these.

Is this the same plug?

Just bought one, worked great! Now i can finaly heat my toolshed with this as a switch for a generic thermostat in HA! Thank you!

Hi Kentivar! How exactly did you write your switch: section in configuration.yaml for ha to work with your Clas Ohlson 38-8837?

Anybody else knows how to get contact with the Clas Ohlson 38-8837? On the box it says (in fine print) “Model: SP4L-EU”. But broadlink platform seems to only mention sp1, sp2, sp3. I have tested with sp3. Also sc1. Cant find device. I see it in my router and have set correct ip number and mac address. Any ideas…anybody?

Recap: So in my case the problem was that the hardware support for broadlink was lagging. The Clas Ohlson Wifi Smart Plug I have is actually broadlink “SP4L-EU”. Now however, since probably around ~2020.12.x home assistant bumped its support for broadlink devices so now several new devices are supported. And suddenly it works flawlessly of course. I didn’t have to edit a single line in configuration.yaml. I just:

  1. Clicked the GUI (Configuration -> Integrations -> Add integration -> Broadlink).
  2. Entered IP address of smartplug.

Done. Now it shows up as device and I can add switch in lovelace GUI etc.
