Sonoff Basic config issues won't switch from ST but does on HTTP


I am new to smart things and have managed to integrate my Hive, Harmony , Hue and Lifx without issue but Sonoff i am struggling with.

I flashed my Sonoff basic with Tasmota & a Sonoff POW and added 2 handlers, Sonoff Connect & Sonoff Wifi switch, i can connect to the sonoff via http and switch it on and off without issue.

I added the new device via its ip in the smart things app marketplace, my problem is that it just does not want to talk to the the switch via smart things.

What i have noted is that in live logging when i use ST on/off it logs an entry for on & off, ST app shows the device as unavailable ?.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as i am getting no where fast :frowning:

Here are some of the live log files responses .

Not sure if this is helpfull :slight_smile:

Problem here 2. Have 2 Tasmota’s on 5.1 and one on 6.1. And ST won’t find the switch, although the smarttings IDE website did find it.

When you say it won’t FIND them, what do you mean? You have to define the ip in the DTH.

Excellent , that’s what i was missing , the bin file i used did not have the option to enter an i.p address which i have now done and its working 100%.

Thank you so much :slight_smile:

@Ryan780 I wonder if you can help me too…I have the same problem above but have defined the ip address already, and port as 80. When i open up ST app the device default status is ON - then when i toggle it, nothing happens. I can control the Sonoff through tasmota web interface but not ST.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Where do you define it in the dth? I defined it when creating a new device.

You don’t define it in the DTH, you do it in the device properties with the ST app.
