Hi, I’m very new to OH so need some general guidance.

My goal is to have a black box setup of OH with Sonos devices ready to be installed

My question:

  1. I saw some guides on enabling raspberry pie as wireless router, so is it possible to use openhabian and configure it as wifi router as well? Goal is to have a close loop connection of openhab and the devices

  2. Does all sonof device needs specific tasmota firmware?

  3. Is there a way to backup the original firmware on sonof devices?

TIA for responses,

SONOS or Sonoff? That 2 completely different systems.

I think you are talking about https://github.com/arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota so Sonoff.
You just need to flash it once. After that you can select the Module type of Sonoff.

I don’t know about that one. But I never wanted the “original” firmware first place :smiley:
Maybe @ThomDietrich knows something about the “original” firmware

Hallo @Faisal_Susanto,

Please check out the big exhaustive thread on the Sonoff devices. It doesn’t make sense to repeat all details here. See: ITEAD Sonoff switches and sockets - cheap ESP8266 Wifi+MQTT hardware

Regarding your question wether or not the Tasmota firmware is needed or if you need a backup of the original firmware, please read:
