3 Reasons Everyone Is Switching To Sonoff For Alexa And Google Home

YouTube player
Just how much easier is it to get Sonoff working with Alexa and IFTTT than with Broadlink?… Spoiler alert, it’s a lot easier. Sonoff currently make the cheapest and most reliable and flexible home automation solutions and this is a ‘how to’ video tutorial in typical Paul Hibbert style on how to connect the Sonoff s20 plug socket to both Alexa and to IFTTT in under 4 minutes!!… the Google Home setup is just the same as Alexa and works just as well 🙂

LINKS (I recommend buying through the below links as they are the cheapest I’ve found and are direct through Sonoff, they are more expensive on Amazon and Sonoff have advised there are fakes circulating Ebay!)

  1. Wondering about the Sonoff switch/IFTTT and offsetting sunset times. I presently have Wemos triggering via WeatherUnderground through IFTTT..

    What it won’t do is trigger BEFORE sunset. What’s REALLY annoying is the wife tells Alexa to turn the lights on, you know, MANUALLY.

    Any notions would be appreciated.

    1. Check out stringify, you can write far more complex flow charts that could in turn trigger IFTTT that would in turn trigger the Sonoff stuff! 🙂
