SONOFF has been steadily growing its range of Zigbee products, and their latest additions promise more than just a competitive price. Catering to those who prefer concealed smart switches and appreciate upgraded smart sensors, these new releases are worth a closer look.
The SONOFF ZBMINI-L2 is undoubtedly one of the smallest Zigbee smart switches available, measuring a mere 39.5 × 32 mm. This compact size sets it apart from its larger sibling, the ZBMINI (54 × 45 mm), and alternatives like the Aqara Single Switch Module T1 (43 × 40 mm). While the ZBMINI-L2's size may limit its load-handling capacity compared to its competitors, it should be perfectly capable of managing lighting.
Those concerned about neutral wires can breathe a sigh of relief, as the SONOFF ZBMINI-L2 does not require one. As a result, it doesn't support measuring power consumption, but it can be controlled using a physical switch, making it an ideal choice for installation behind a light switch.
A Zigbee thermometer with a screen, the SONOFF SNZB-02D
The SONOFF SNZB-02D could be the answer to your thermometer needs. Currently, there are limited Zigbee thermometer options with displays, and configuring Bluetooth just to use Xiaomi's offerings seems excessive.
SONOFF hasn't merely given this upgraded model a pretty face; they've also equipped it with top-notch internals. Their marketing materials emphasize the Swiss-made, high-accuracy sensor, boasting a temperature accuracy of ±0.2 ℃ and a humidity accuracy of ±2% RH compared to a wet-dry bulb hygrometer in the same environment.
SONOFF bolsters its Zigbee offering
In summary, SONOFF's recent additions to their Zigbee product line are making waves in the smart home market. Both the ZBMINI-L2 and SNZB-02D offer innovative features and improvements, catering to those seeking discreet smart switches and accurate thermometers with displays.
