Thanks for your information, this model is good but I think it have neutral wiring require... look for one control lives wire will do as lazy for rewiring again,
If you have a 3 pin plug next to your light switch, you can tap from there. No need full rewiring.

This is how I have set up my bedroom automaton. When I call for movie mode, the curtain closes, the apple TV switches on, the projector switches on, the projector screen lowers down, and the ceiling speakers switches on.

I went with Automate Asia.

Running:

Alexa/Fibaro/HA Bridge

to control

Z wave modules (light dimming/motorised curtains and blinds)/Wifi devices (aircon, smart switches, vacuum cleaner, air purifiers).

Home has been set up and lived in for > a year. So far so good. Just a restart once every few months if system hangs. If I need to ask them something, they're responsive, even a year after the business.

Sonoff should be very standard, and will fit our 86x86 box.
I am using this from taobao:
【智能家居wifi手机远程无线触摸钢化玻璃面板86零火线单控定时开关】https://m.tb.cn/h.3F9iqZQ?sm=6e8bec 点击链接,再选择浏览器咑閞;或復·制这段描述¥ClNFbGUKZJw¥后到��淘♂寳♀��
This brand, Burnett from Taobao is one of the few brands that also have a no-neutral or 单火线 version of their Wifi smart wall switches besides the usual neutral ones or 零火线 and size 86mm but need to install a capacitor at the lighting. Use Ewelink app. Also have a dual Wifi/RF version.

Should be suitable for installation in our context.
