This is Australian version, but I've seen this product in several markets.
The device runs custom Meross software, requires different app and integration.
It seems solid, works fine, advertising up to 10A switching, and has an integrated energy monitor, which I always like. It's nice to have fine resolution stats on energy consumption throughout the home!
I might complain that it's unnecessarily bulky (like all devices in this category!)
It disassembles very easily by 4 screws, no clips or anything:
Trying to remove the board, it feels like the board is soldered or fixed in place to the electrical pins sticking out the back:
I wasn't able to remove the board, making it difficult to access the processor:
Which happens to be an RTL8710CF, which seems that it's not yet supported, so I guess the journey ends here.
What can be done to support these Realtek chips? I have many of these devices...
The larger challenge might be breaking out the terminals; it's very cramped! But they did appear to helpfully label TX/RX pads.
I guess I'll just leave this here until we have some way to test on Realtek chips. I have several of these which I can experiment with.
The chip clearly appears to have RTL8710CF written on it... I think it's a new chip? I noted another "CF" chip with a different number somewhere else while googling around.
This device is NOT compatible with Tuya directly; you don't pair the device with Tuya or SmartLife app, you use the Meross app, and the advertising material makes a big point of this saying it supports direct/local commands, so they respond faster and when the internet is out.
how is your polishing ? Anything I could help or contribute?
I got two power switch from a German distributor which is know to sell cheap stuff, so as this good pieces.
A WR2E module from Tuya with the RTL8710BN MCU.
Do you have already a *.bin file I could test with this?
