today I received my Shelly 1.
What I wanted to achieve is basically to use it to turn on / off lights via Alexa.
My setup looks like this:
- brown wire - input Phase > connected to "L”
- blue wire - input N > connected to "N"
- brown wire > going to 5 LED array
- blue wire > going to 5 LED array
What I tried was to "simply" not attach anything to the "SW" port as I don't have or need an external switch.
I was somehow hoping, that I could turn the switch on / off via the Shelly app and ultimatively with Alexa in the end.
I could use the shelly app, add the Shelly 1 as new device, and now I am also able to use the app and tap that virtual "ON" "OFF" switch.
When I do that I clearly hear the relay's click. But the lights are not switching on.
When I checked the output ports with the phasing tester, I could see that there was output at all when switching.
Am I missing something?
Is this device also meant to work for my scenario or do I need a switch to get this to work?
Thanks a lot
