Sonoff SNZB-02 Zigbee Temperature & Humidity Sensor


The Sonoff Temperature & Humidity sensor works exactly like advertised, but it has a big short coming that makes it difficult for me to recommend this sensor over it’s competitor from Shelly.

I bought this specific Sonoff sensor based on this marketing sentence from their website: “Measure the temperature and humidity in real-time, and sync data to your mobile phone in no time.” It turns out that “sync” functionality is very limited. There is no history synced.

That is the biggest drawback of the Sonoff SNZB-02, it does not record any history, the readings are real-time only which make this sensor kind of worthless to get any meaningful environmental data. Which means the only useful thing this sensor offers is the ability to turn on the fan if the temperature goes above a certain level.

Sonoff’s biggest competitor, Shelly, has a similar sensor called the Shelly H&T, which works directly on your Wi-Fi without the need for a Zigbee bridge and more importantly allows you to view the history of your temperature recordings in your home.

What are the PROS of the Sonoff SNZB-02 Zigbee Temperature & Humidity Sensor

  • Lightweight & Small Footprint.
  • Works with the EweLink App
  • Long-lasting (about 1 year) and easy to replace button cell battery
  • Accurate Measurements
  • Ability to use it to control other connected Sonoff devices

What are the CONS of the Sonoff SNZB-02 Zigbee Temperature & Humidity Sensor

  • Requires a Zigbee bridge in order to work, No Wi-Fi ability
  • No History, you cannot see the history or a graph of your temperature readings
  • False positives with the low battery warning (will often times say the battery is low even when it is not)

It’s still a fantastic device and works well despite these querks, but I genuinely hope Sonoff (ITEAD Intelligent Systems Co.Ltd.) will enable history readings in a future update. It will not be difficult to do, but I suspect their reasoning is budget related as it would require them to store the information on their servers, so it might become a paid feature.

Then again, if they do end up charging me to access my data then I will simply use Shelly instead.

Review: Sonoff GK-200MP2-B a Wi-Fi and Lan enabled Wireless IP Security Camera

You probably know the Sonoff brand for smart home electronics like the POW R2 or the Sonoff Basic switches, but they also released a security camera, the Sonoff GK-200MP2-B. I decided to try it out and made an in-depth review so you can make the right decision. Considering this is Sonoff, a well-known brand for robust electronics. I expect a good working, premium product that just works especially since to use the Sonoff GK200MP2-B, you need the eWeLink application which integrates very well with other Sonoff devices.

The Sonoff lightbulbs are very affordable and provide you with the basic functionality that a smart home needs. If the budget is tight and you don’t need all bells and whistles of the more expensive lights, Sonoff lightbulbs will do the job just fine. The prices start from $9.90 for the (plastic, White + color temperature) B02 B A60 and $12.90 for the fancy, pear-shaped B02-F-ST64 (glass, retro look, White + color temperature). As far as connected lights go, the prices are very attractive and Sonoff lightbulbs indeed are as inexpensive as you can get.

Enclosed in the same shell, SNZB-02 Zigbee temperature & Humidity sensor reports back every couple of minutes. The sensor is powered by CR2450 3V battery. The extra capacity means that the sensor will last a really long time. I have a heater connected to eWeLink app and, once I added a hub (absolutely required) this thing has performed well. The heater is controlled within +- 1°C. That's another thing, eWeLink only provides temperature readings in °C with no option for °F. I'm thinking about placing another sensor on the outside of the window so that I can control based on outdoor temperature as well.

The internet is full of restrictions, censorship, privacy invasions, security breaches, and a host of unwanted entities trafficking in your personal data. Using a VPN is a great first step toward protecting your privacy online. Privacy is fundamental to a well-functioning society because it allows norms, ethics, and laws to be safely discussed and challenged.
