292

One of the renowned brands that make low-cost WI-FI switches is the Sonoff.  These switches are used to control mains-powered devices like lights, pumps, heaters, etc. They contain an ESP8266 Wi-Fi Chip plus additional circuitry and are made by ITEAD Studio based in China, which also makes a collection of home automation products. Let us take a look at both the BASICR2 vs. BASICR3 in depth.

SONOFF BASICR2

Remote control and Receiver Sensitivity

Both SONOFF BASICR2 and BASICR3 are APP Remote Control: eWeLink app allows you to control all SONOFF devices anywhere with one touch via iOS and Android smartphones, with no distance limitation. You can also track the status of devices in real-time at any time

A receiver with a smaller sensitivity rating will be able to detect weaker RF signals and demodulate the data in wider wireless coverage. The receiver sensitivity value of BASICR3 is the best, up to -72.3dBm around. This indicates the capability of receiving data of BASICR3 is better than BASICR2.

Average & Transmission Power

Transmission power is the amount of power of radiofrequency energy that a transmitter produces at its output. As the signal of the transmitter pass through the attenuation of the space before it can reach the receiver, in the condition of acceptable transmit spectrum mask and EVM index, the greater the transmission power, the better linearity, and larger wireless coverage are. All this considered, the BASICR3 transmission power is the best one compared with BASICR2.

SONOFF BASICR3

Scheduling

Both switches have Automatic Control Scheduling. It comes in handy since by setting timers or schedules on the eWeLink app, a lamp can be automatically turned on and off at a specified time. Automate your home appliances through 3 types of timers: scheduled time, countdown time, and loop time. You can create smart scenes so that one SONOFF device can turn on/off another, or gather multiple devices into a group and push to run them together

Hands-Free Voice Control

All SONOFF Basic WiFi Switch is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Home Assistant. Let’s you use your voice to control home devices for a hands-free experience

The main difference is that BASICR3 is made of PC which features high heat-resistance; flame-retardance, impact-resistance, and heat aging resistance, ensuring your appliances are safer in use while BASICR2, adopts ABS (V0 rating) material that is inferior to BASICR3 in the aspect of heat aging resistance.
