I have 60 Shelly 1, 2.5, and Dimmer 2’s in my home powering mostly LEDVANCE Color Smart lights (Except the Dimmer 2’s). I use the Shelly Binary Sensors in Detached Mode to trigger my HA Automations for each lighting group.
I am toying with the idea of flashing them with ESPHome firmware to take advantage of one feature:
“In case there is no connection to Wifi, or no API connection (normally Home Assistant) the config will toggle the relay, so it will still toggle the attached light in cases where Wifi or HA fails.”
(ESPHome - https://www.esphome-devices.com/devices/Shelly-1)
I really want my lights to feel normal to visitors and others that use my house, and sometimes I get latency issues or downright non-function of my lights with my current setup.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Can I setup this same functionality with the new Shelly integration in Home Assistant somehow?
I appreciate your help.
