Our first two entries in this project (read HERE) covered setting up the raspberry pi and flashing Tasmota onto the Wi-Fi plug. Now that we’ve got it configured, it is time to add the device to Hubitat so that we can get the most use out of it!

In Part I (HERE), we set up a Raspberry Pi so that we can host Tuya Convert, the process that allows us to flash a Smart Life or Tuya Smart switch OTA. In this entry, we’re going to select a compatible Wi-Fi plug, set up Tuya Convert on the Pi, and flash the plug. This is a REALLY easy project. If you follow the steps carefully, you won’t run into any major problems and then, after a couple of conversions, you’ll have it down.

Ladies and gentlemen, this project is FUN. We’re going to learn how to use a Raspberry Pi to flash a Smart Life/Tuya Smart Wi-Fi plug with Tasmota without soldering – OTA – meaning “Over The Air” – and set it up in Hubitat to automatically reboot a device every night at 2 am. Again, NO soldering. I’m going to give solid, in-depth instructions for each phase of the project, so you will need zero experience in order to duplicate my results. This first entry covering the project will show you how to set up the Pi for flashing the plug.

I wanted to share something I’ve had on the back burner for a little while – Sonoff smart switches – both the basic switch and the fan controllers. A few weeks back, I got the itch to start monkeying with them.
