If your like me you may have jumped into the new wifi control components with both feet, as they are fairly new and different makes models functions etc it really allows a person to customize their lives.

On my latest order the brand I am used too was sold out and did not have a reasonable estimate of when they would be in stock again so I bought the next brand in the same price range with the same function

Enter the eMylo wifi smart switch, sometimes called a smart breaker.

Its pretty much the same except for the wiring thats where it gets a little counter intuitive and can be confusing.

The eMylo has two wires on both the input and output there is no way to attach your wires inside the case unless you are adept and equipped for micro ish soldering as they are connected directly to the board and then you attach a connection block to those and your wires on the output side of that.

there are two things I will point out to help make your first run with this switch a little smoother.

The connection block
The connection block is nifty its not my favorite way to attach the wires but it is neat.

when you get it you pull back the levers but because they are little and plastic you may be like me and be scared to break them, Don’t be they need to be pulled all the way back just like shown in the picture above they are very tight at first and it will feel like your going to break them but unless you get a bad one or use too much force they will open a little and then with a bit more force all the way back to the open position as shown.

Now onto the important point.



Wiring it up

The eMylo is a easy little breaker to wire up the only tricky part for me at least is that you need to understand that the RED wire is the load wire and the BLACK wire is the common, neutral, shared wire.

For me when I wire 120volt I always use the black as the load its because thats the color used in the homes in canada up until this point so when I see a 120v component I assume black is hot. eMylo decided to follow the 12 volt or 220/240 volt, color system.

now the kicker the switch WILL work when you wire black to black red to white BUT not for long and it craps out fairly quickly a few minutes or more but until it does it goes on and off and seems to work.

eMylo wiring

As you can see I was using red and black wires for this project which was a smart garden controller which made it a little weird wiring it up and having to cross the wires over to avoid shorting it out and having it not function.

Its not a huge deal but if you just open the box and think “Ive wired switches before I got this” well you might end up spending a bunch of time trying to figure out where you went wrong because as I said the switch seems to work except the power stays on and does not click off until the switch powers itself down so in trouble shooting you are likely to pass it by as it seems to be working.

all you really need to remember or know is that for the emylo wifi switch the RED is the hot wire the black wire in your house and the red wire in your car truck etc (usually)

hope this helps
