Hi, I’ve just purchased this and managed to flash ok with tuya-convert. However I haven’t managed to get the GPIO mappings right in tasmota, I’ve got the LED but not the relay, button or sensors. Any help would be useful…
Thanks

{“NAME”:“TP24Y”,“GPIO”:[0,0,0,17,134,132,0,0,131,56,21,0,0],“FLAG”:0,“BASE”:18}

It will require calibrating after setup as mine was well out. (very easy to do and takes about 2 minutes)

Any further further issues don’t hesitate to shout.

I don’t understand all the GPIO ins & outs but through trial & error and searching this forum & the net I’ve managed to get many different makes of smart plugs, bulbs & relays up & running with Tasmota

I have the bulb VT-5154.
I would like to convert to Tasmota.
How are the template and settings for Tasmota?

Thanks

V-Tac VT-5154 RGB+2700K-6400K

{“NAME”:“V-TAC VT-5154”,“GPIO”:[0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,181,0,180,0,0],“FLAG”:0,“BASE”:18}

Color channel mapping to G,B,R,Wc,Ww: SetOption37 30

Thanks for this great resource!
I use the Gosund UP111s and as of Tasmota 8.5.0 (and 8.5.1) the hardware power button on them no longer works. It was working fine before I updated them (from 8.4.x. I think), so something must have changed.
Anyone got any ideas?
Using the following template from the main template DB:
{“NAME”:“Gosund UP111”,“GPIO”:[0,52,0,17,134,132,0,0,131,157,21,0,0],“FLAG”:0,“BASE”:18}

Did you ever resolve your issue Mark

For anyone else that hits this issue: https://github.com/blakadder/templates/issues/686#event-3834748623
Basically run “setoption73 0” after the upgrade to get your physical power button back!

Great, glad you got it sorted.

I got a set of these during Prime day the other week. I managed to flash them with tuya-convert and straight to esphome with the help of this github thread as a template. It was my first time trying this so I was glad to find the template. This plug was also listed here with a tuya template that I didn’t try.

Power monitoring etc. seems to be working though I haven’t attempted any calibration, I just went with a similar structure to that github template.

did anyone had luck to flash this ones?
Gosund 13A WiFi Socket Plug and
Avatar

The gosund UP111 can be flashed using Tuya-Convert and are a good compact smart plug.
The Avatar AWP14H can also be flashed using Tuya-Convert but are quit large.
I have several gosund which are also the same as 2nice and a couple of Avatar.
My personal top pick when they are available would be Slitinto or Jules. V NX-SM112, they are slimmer than most and so do not interfere with the wall socket switch when plugged in and can be flashed with Tuya-Convert

Thanks i will try ro flash again tonight

I bought several Avatar AWP14H a year ago, and all were successfully flashed.
A month ago I bought some more, but they no longer can be flashed. Maybe this was my batch only, I don’t know.

I have the same issue…have dozen of AWP14H, ordered fresh 4…I cannot flash it with tuya-convert anymore :(. any fresh recommendation for UK from Amazon that works with tuya-convert?

Gosund still worked for me (a month ago)!

Ordered 4 to try.
I later found on https://templates.blakadder.com/plug.html this for the Avatar:

As of December 2020 these plugs come with Beken BK7231 chipset and are no longer compatible with Tasmota.
As of December 2020 these plugs can come with the new Tuya firmware and therefor cannot be flashed.

Hey everyone, hope you don’t mind the late response.

I’m in the process of setting up a shop to sell pre-flashed, pre-configured, and pre-calibrated Tasmota devices here: Local Bytes Power Monitoring Smart Plug (UK)

If you sign up for an account, I’ll be sending out an email when we get the initial stock sorted!
