Anyone ever use these?
Are they easy fit into a single gang box?
They look fairly simple and straight forward, but I'm wondering how long they're last.
It seems like they're damn near a dime a dozen for something that's typically 5-6 times as much as a full wifi switch..

Thanks, OP. I saw these on Amazon the other day and was curious about them. Looking forward to trying one out on the cheap.

FWIW these are about $6 everyday on ebay.
To make these work you have to create a account at the chinese company that makes these so they can phone home when you give it a command. These also need to be connected to an internet connection or they don't work. If your internet goes down for awhile then these won't work until it comes back.
I added a guest login to my wifi router so these have a limited connection.
There is software out there to bypass having to use their servers but then you need to setup a whole server in your house to support the "internet of things" devices to make it work.
Over all these are really easy to use if you don't panic over the "server in china" thing.

Yeah Chinese phone cases and knock-off Legos are one thing, but letting random Chinese IoT devices on my WiFi is something else.

The price is right, and they look easy enough to set up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRCH67wfwNE

It's good practice to set up a dedicated network or at least VLAN for your IoT devices. Once I have that isolation established, for $4, these things can phone home all they want.

Edit: the coupon only works on 1... my enthusiasm is dimmed

I flashed mine with Sonoff-Tasmota so I don't have to rely on China and manage my device locally using http/mqtt. I also use it with the smartthings hub. Love these little things.

Yes as a standalone device, however it's integrated with smartthings which has google/Alexa capabilities.

Sonoff-Tasmota has hue bridge and wemo emulation, so it might work with Alexa as a standalone device. probably not with Google home.

I would not buy a dual unless I could verify its version 2 (R2) it is much easier to work with when flashing to tasmota.
