    Now what about all of this, if one has a ripple control, that's controlled by the council?

    If those units were used and all those fitted were in working order I guess stage 1 LS could have been avoided in Gauteng. I don't know if other provinces had them fitted. I think all the controllers for them are out of order. They used to work only during peak hours.

    It is not a 100% solution, because I cannot see the temp.

    I use the sonoff to switch a 25A relay which cut the power to the element, i.e. the power cable between the controller box and the element.

    You must just ensure that there is power when the geyserwise timer switch on otherwise the timer gives an E4 error indicating a power failure. Everything still works, but it can be irritating.

    Was hoping for a better answer ;-p

    I've contacted geyserwise for this and was advised to bridge the power button and control with sonoff...

    Can't believe that they done have a solution to this... Even including seeing the temp.

    Was hoping to be able to give a better answer .

    I would like to have a wifi connection to the geyser to be able to see the temp. It makes decision making easier. It is difficult to manage it on cloudy days with WA (people at home) .

    use a sonoff TH16 to monitor the geyer temp

    you can use a normal sonoff switch through a relay to switch the geyser on and off them.

    Where do you put the temp probe?

    I would use this probe and it goes into the existing jacket of the thermostat.
