I configured my device as detatched switch so that my smart bulb is always on. I want that my shelly 1L virtually controlls my light bulb via home assistant. Under I/O actions in the shelly mode I tried setting the webhook from an automation however that starts with https:// and shelly only accepts http://. Do you have any ideas what I can try?
og, exit after @tom_l ’s post…should have read better… but wht he said is also possibly with add-pnn/esphome
There’s a binary sensor that monitors the Shelly switch state. Use a state trigger to monitor that and control your lights as you wish in the actions of the automation.
Thanks! The binary sensor was deactivated by defaullt. After I activated it, it did exactly what I wated it to do. However after 25 minutes the shelly turns off and goes offline (maybe overheating), so I just wired the live and ground together and stuck a tradfri dimmer next to the light switch.
And that did not trip all the circuit breakers / fuses in your house.
I’m pretty sure you did not short the power company to ground.
Do not short line and neutral either.
Please consult an electrician before you burn your house down.
My lightswitch has two wires I dont no what they are called but I connected both, a switch does nothing else.
You probable wired black to brown (which is what the switch does indeed).
Blue = Neutral wire
Brown = Live wire
Black = Switch wire
Green/Yellow = Earth wire
At least, this are the colors used in EU
In other words…never connect the Blue to the brown wire, unless you like fireworks
Yeah somebody messed up the color coding they are both black. But it is hard to mess up when you only have 2 wires.
