Supported Tasmota Devices

It should work for most switches, lights (CCT, RGB, RGBW), dimmers, relays, plugs, power strips, sockets, wall outlets, fan controllers, RF motion/contact sensors, RF remote controllers, IR bridges and RF bridges listed in the Tasmota Device Templates Repository.

If your Tasmota device is not listed below, choose a Generic device that is similar to your Tasmota device.

  • Generic Switch (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8CH) - No Power Monitoring
  • Generic Metering Switch (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8CH) - Power Monitoring
  • Generic Dimmer Switch
  • Generic IR Bridge
  • Generic Light (CT)
  • Generic Light (RGB)
  • Generic Light (RGBW)
  • Sonoff Basic
  • Sonoff RF
  • Sonoff TH
  • Sonoff Dual & Dual R2
  • Sonoff Pow & Pow R2
  • Sonoff 4CH & 4CH Pro
  • Sonoff S20, S26
  • Sonoff S31
  • Sonoff Touch, T1 (1,2,3CH)
  • Sonoff RF Bridge
  • Sonoff iFan02, iFan03

Virtual Device

A Virtual Device uses a RF or IR bridge to control or read your dumb RF / IR devices.

Virtual Device Usage
Virtual Switch Add a SmartThings generic switch that can be controlled by a RF / IR bridge (e.g. Sonoff RF Bridge).
Virtual Shade Add a SmartThings shade/blind that can be controlled by a RF / IR bridge (e.g. Sonoff RF Bridge).
Virtual Button Add RF/IR remote controller 1/2/4/6-button as SmartThings remote controller button.

The Virtual 1-button has additional capabilities:
  • Push/Momentary Capability
  • Motion Sensor Capability (useful for Alexa)
Virtual Contact Sensor Add a RF contact sensor
Virtual Motion Sensor Add a RF motion sensor
Virtual Air Conditioner Add a IR virtual air conditioner (supported AC vendor/brands)

(optional) Use a contact sensor to sense if the AC is ON or OFF.

Configuring a Virtual Switch

  1. Choose a RF or IR Bridge

  2. Enter the Tasmota command to send for "ON" and "OFF"

    For RF, it has to be one of these formats

    • Backlog RfSync <value>; RfLow <value>; RfHigh <value>; RfCode <value>
    • Backlog RfRaw <value>; RfRaw 0

      Note: RFRaw requires Portisch Firmware

  3. Optionally, enable State tracking to listen for RF codes (e.g. from RF remote) to simulate a Stateful device

  4. If you enable State tracking, enter the code that represents the "ON" and "OFF" state

    In the example below, the code is 70C70F

    • "RfReceived":{"Sync":7110,"Low":210,"High":660,"Data":"70C70F","RfKey":"None"}

Configuring a Virtual Contact / Motion Sensor / Button

  1. Choose a RF Bridge

  2. Enter the RFReceived Data that represents "OPEN", "CLOSE", "ACTIVE", "INACTIVE" or button state

    In the example below, the code is 70C70F

    • "RfReceived":{"Sync":7110,"Low":210,"High":660,"Data":"70C70F","RfKey":"None"}

Configuring a Virtual Air Conditioner

  1. Choose an IR Bridge
  2. Select air conditioner brand (supported AC vendor/brands)
  3. (Optional) Select a contact sensor to sense if the AC is ON or OFF

FAQ

My Tasmota device is not responding?

  • Verify the IP address is correct and you are able to access your device via the IP address.
  • If you have added this device using other developer device type handler (DTH), please delete the device.
  • If the device is still not responding, look at the Tasmota Console so that you can see exactly what is happening. e.g. The actions (on/off) that you've called in SmartThings App didn't appear in the Console, it's likely the SmartThings hub is unable to access the device.
  • Ensure your Tasmota devices and SmartThings hub are assigned with static IP addresses.

Where can I find out more about Tasmota command for sending/receiving IR / RF codes?

Please see under RF Bridge & IR Remote - https://tasmota.github.io/docs/Commands/

The Tasmota (Connect) SmartApp is not showing up in SmartThings App?

  • Sign in to SmartThings IDE: https://account.smartthings.com/login
  • Verify that you have installed the codes in the correct SmartThings IDE Shard.
  • If you don't see your current devices under "My Devices", you are probably on the wrong shard.

I'm unable to find the recently released features (or missing features or devices) in my SmartApp?

  • Please make sure you install the SmartApp and all Device Handlers, and update the codes regularly to receive the latest features

I created a generic/metering switch with 2 (or more) channels, but it shows only 1 switch?

  • Please make sure you install the SmartApp and all Device Handlers, and update the codes regularly to receive the latest features
