Temperature Control by Sonoff BASICR3 in DIY mode or Shelly Plugs

iBLOPPER CLOUD and iBLOPPER ver. 4.1 onwards can control a pair of Shelly Plugs and/or Sonoff BASIC R3 in DIY mode to control your heating agent and/or cooling system.

These Plugs needs to be on same local network as the iBLOPPER and hence, the iBLOPPER will trigger the target plug by the following http command on the local network by pointing at the plugs local IP adress.

If you router allows to set static IP, you should do so as else the IP can change in the router after powerloss or the lease of IP runs out. Leavng the plug on all time should renew the lease in the router and hence lower this issue.

Assuming you have set up the Shelly Plug or Sonoff BASICR3 and can now control a light bulb/lamp by it from the respective apps, you should find the local IP adress of you Shelly Plug and include this in iBLOPPER CLOUD under “Advance Settings”. For Sonoff BASICR3 you first need to upgrade it till firmware 3.5+ and then enter DIY mode, see below for more.

The hysteresis decides how much levage (over or under) target temperature is needed before the Shelly Plug should be turn on. Hence, this should ensure the Shelly Plugs trigger especially the cooler on/off just around the setpoint.

As soon as you have turn Temperature control on, you should be able to set the settemp at the main screeen:

Setting up Shelly

1). Acces the AP and set your Wifi data for SSID and password.

2). When you able to control a lightbulb etc in Shelly App, then find the local IP address.

3). Enter IP address in iBLOPPER CLOUD.
