I have 2 lamps in the bathroom which I’d like to control with a Shelly (individually).
Initially I bought 2x Shelly 1, but might be better of with 1x Shelly 2.5
The only problem is: I am kind of reluctant to opening up the wall socket because this is a rental appartement and I rarely worked with mains voltage.
On top of the cabinet I have the 3 wires (L1, L2, N) coming out and those have been wired with clips to the lamps by whoever installed it in the first place. I think I should be fine with a wiring like this, powering the shelly from L1+L2:
Of course this would mean that whenever I press the wall switch and interrupt the power, I would turn off both the lamps AND the Shelly’s. Personally that’s not much of an issue but I was wondering: what is the default when I press the switch again, and the Shelly’s get power fed trough them?
Will the Shelly’s automatically turn on the lamp again, or will only the chip on the Shelly be powered, having to toggle the state for the lamps again in HA?
Here are some pictures of how the current wiring situation is set up:
