$15 (+ shipping?) from what is maybe the manufacturer here, https://www.itead.cc/smart-home/s...touch.html.

It looks like a neutral is required, but it doesn't have a ground terminal. I'm not sure about having something like this not attached to ground.

With some work, it is compatible with smartthings, https://community.smartthings.com...45957/1045.

having a neutral is better than ground, right? Everyone was making a big deal of the last TP-Link switch because it used the ground instead of neutral

I can't tell by the size or the pictures. Does this take the place of a 3 switch duplex? (Terminology?)

Meaning I have 3 light switches all side by side in the same housing, this will replace all 3?

There are several youtube videos showing the relative size of this unit.
Just search on youtube for "sonoff touch".

max current of 2A seems kind of low.

Ah thanks - yeah that threw me off, looks like if I wanted to utilize this my light switch would be flipped on its side... I guess that would be okay if I were planning on installing a custom light switch but definitely not usable replacing an existing light switch

Just another example of "engineering" where the engineer has no "real world" experience and obviously no real world testing - installing was done. IMO, an engineer should plan for how a unit it to be installed in a real world setting taking into account making room for wires and various electrical box dimensions.
And yeah, what's with the 'nutty' sideways mounting? What genius decided THAT was ok?
