Feit Electric - Wi-Fi Outdoor Plug - BK7231

  • Hey all -

    First post here, so hopefully I cover all the bases. First time trying OpenBeken, so thought I'd share my experience and add to the list of known working devices.

    Given how well this worked, I might try my hand at some other Feit devices I've got laying around (currently on LocalTuya). I've got a penchant for them because they've been pretty reliable, and more importantly cheap and widely available (including at Costco - bulk prices - for those of us in the US).

    Cheers!
    Matt



    Device name: Feit Electric Wi-Fi Smart Outdoor Plug
    SKU: PLUG/WIFI/WP
    Manufacturer URL: https://www.feit.com/product/outdoor-smart-wifi-dual-outlet-wall-plug-alexa-google-assistant/
    Description: Outdoor two-outlet smart plug

    Chip: BK7231-TQN32
    Standalone, no Tuya module

    Summary:
    Flashed using: hid_download_py; BK_Writer 1.60 didn't work for me for writing, but appeared to work for the read.
    Powered 3.3V via the board, soldered directly to the RX1/TX1 & GND pads on the back of the board. There were through holes for those on the board, but not sure if they work. By the end, the issue was BK_Writer not working - maybe those might work if I tried it again.

    Using the config from "Enbrighten Wifi Switch" which appears to be working perfectly (LED p7; Relay p24; Button p26)

    Thank you for the presentations!
    I wonder if in Europe they produce these splitters for a European plug and 230V?

    Thanks for the teardown. I just wonder how well this device can work outdoors, does the case provide enough insulation for moisture?

    Some time ago I did a teardown of a similar product - lGarden Tuya CCWFIO232PK Double Relay - BK7231T - Programming

    Honestly not sure I am qualified to comment on the level of waterproofing, but I had used it last year during the winter and it held up outside. That other product frankly looks better, because it actually has two distinct relays. This one only had a single relay for both outlets.

    PS: thanks for all the hard work on OpenBeken!
