I needed a bluetooth bridge for Home Assistant which I could place closer to the car than my HA server. This device worked like a charm.
The only thing I wish is that it had PoE so that I could run just one cable to the device. (you can have just one cable, but that would be USB-C as power supply and then use WiFi instead of the Ethernet port, but I like cable Ethernet for its reliability)
I have two smart plugs working away in my greenhouse automation. Great product with Home Assistant.
I integrated this with Node-Red without too many issues. When I did have a question, Florian was more than responsive. Don’t hesitate - buy one.
With seamless integration with Home Assistant through MQTT this plug make it a breeze to connect my bluetooth sensors (temp/humidity) in my charcuterie drying room and automate a dehumidifier device to maintain optimal conditions for your curing process.
This plug offers efficient connectivity with BLE message analysis, making it incredibly easy to transform any ordinary device into a smart one.
This Theengs PlUG is must-have for anyone looking to elevate its home automation game while keeping away the burden of handling the ESP32/BLE message parsing.
I already used the Theengs APP before getting the Theengs PLUG, and these are both good software/tools with good customer support.
I do recommend!
(because the plug also provides electrical consumption, I start using the energy dashboard in HA. This opens new project with this theengsplug!)
The Theengs Plug ESP32 smart plug runs OpenMQTTGateway firmware to serve as a BLE MQTT gateway and power meter compatible with Home Assistant, Homebridge, OpenHAB, DomoticZ, FHEM, Jeedom, NodeRed, AWS, and any MQTT-compatible IoT or Smart Home system.
