    I bought a sonoff unit to try out ... it requires wifi an app etc etc ... this quinetic switch ... doesnt require a battery ... wifi ... crystals ... nothing ... just a switch and a receiver at the light.

    and I dont want to open an an app on my phone everytime i want to switch a light on and off or be using a server in China to control my lights etc etc ... and in SA with all the power issues ... cable theft ... back to basics ... maybe gas or paraffin lamps around the house would be a wise choice ... but then you have to look at security ... you cant leave your fortress after dark in fear of being attacked by the the night crawlers.

    I agree - I refuse to use anything that requires an internet connection to work. The system has to work 100% within the confines of my local offline network.
