Problem Statement: Smart Egg Boiler
I have been using this egg boiler since last year, and it’s working fine. In the morning, I will load eggs into the boiler and turn it on. Then I will go to either gym or running.
When I return after a workout, The eggs will be boiled and ready to eat. this continues every day. But some times, I forget to turn on the device, or I forget to load eggs when I’m in hurry to go to the gym if I woke up late. It happened so many times for me and this problem haunting me for since long. In this lockdown, I got some time to think about it and resolved it. So, let’s see how I have done it.
Now I’m gonna add this Sonoff basic switch in between the AC power socket and an Egg boiler, For that, I have added the required Male and Female plugs to the Sonoff as shown in the below picture.
Now, let’s open the Ewelink Android application, I have already added this Sonoff to this application and named it as Smart Egg boiler.
If you wanted to know How to do that, you can check out this video
we can control the Egg boiler directly from the mobile itself using this button. At the bottom of the screen, we have 3 features which are Schedule, Timer, and Loop Timer.
For this application, Schedule Feature is the best one. Because we can Turn on or turn off the device at a specific time by scheduling at that particular time.
I usually come back from the gym after 8 ‘O’ clock AM, So I wanted to turn on at 7:30 AM and turn off at 7:45 AM as this boiler will take 15 minutes to boil the eggs.So, let’s schedule the same on the Eweleing application.
Select the time 7:30 AM, repeat every day, and the action should be turned on and then click on save. Select the time 7:45 AM, repeat every day, and the action should be turn OFF and then click on save. So, now this device successfully scheduled to turn on at 7:30 AM and Turnoff at 7:45 AM every day.
The Egg boiler will turn at the Scheduled time and start boiling the Eggs, After 15 mins, the Egg boiler will automatically turn off. WHen return at 8 ‘O’ clock AM, I can have the eggs.
So, that’s it for this tutorial, this is how we can convert the basic egg boiler to a smart egg boiler using Sonoff and its Schedule feature.. not only egg boiler, you can convert any device which needs human intervention to a smart device.
