i am experimenting with our Roller shutters cause i want to automate them
At first i odered a shelly 2.5 because that is very easy to integrate and indeed is working very well.
But personally i find this thing too hot. When it´s installed in-wall behind the switch for the roller it is getiing to about 65 to 70 degress and i don´t feel comfortable with that. With all that wiring and stuff it is pretty dense in there and everything gets hot. Seriously, the switch gets so warm that you can heat your fingers. Counting in that the normal cables are certified to 70 degress i personally don´t want that to use.
Despite it is working very well and does not cost much.
But i am lacking an alternative solution and hope you can guide me in a direction.
Ideally i want:
Still having a manual switch to control roller shutters
Controlling via WiFi/Zigbee
Easy to integrate in Home Assistant
no cloud / LAN only
Just buy and use, i dont want to buy extra stuff for flashing
Most of the stuff i found is “Smart Life” / “Tuya” which looks a little shady from its integration.
Am I wrong.
Is there anything i missed?
I my wishlist too needy?
no it is running the latest shelly firmware.
A little handwarm would be ok for me. But this things are getting really hot. (considered that they are most often installed in places without space i really thing this is a downside.)
Maybe i am just a little to carefull, but when i can feel how hot this thing gets through the actual hardware switch of the roller (so the shelly is behind this) i am a little concerned.
If i could chosse i want something like this, but not Homematic
