Useful References for the Shelly Button1

  • Thought these references would be of use:

    • Direct Device to Device communication (DDD) . This is a particularly helpful reference as it covers the http:// calls to the various devices from the Action page of the Shelly Button1 webpage. There is also similar information posted here on this website
    • Shelly Family API Overview. Useful from a developers perspective, not so sure about how helpful it is when dealing with direct calls to other shelly devices from the Shelly Button1?
  • Key for the Shelly Button1 Indicator LED Colours: (from Shelly - Technical support)

    • Blue: static.: the device is acting as an Access point.
    • Blue: blinking fast: the device is trying to move from AP to client mode.
    • Blue: continuous blinking: the device is connected to cloud or MQTT.
    • Blue: After use of the reset button: the device blinks in blue until the 5th second when it then starts to blink faster.
    • Note: The blue light is only seen when it is attached to a powered USB.
    • White (also looks like light blue): Blinking continuously. This takes place after the button has been pushed (once, twice or three times).
    • White: Blinking: .Follows the release of the button. This continues until there is feedback that the command has been received from the cloud, MQTT or action URL.
    • White: Single blink followed by no light: If there is no feedback from the three above mentioned sources, the LED blinks white and then the device goes into sleep mode.
    • Green: blink: command has been received.
    • Red: static: the command has not been completed
  • Thanks for this information. :thumbup:

    For me this white led strobes for what seems like 30 seconds and is very bright especially at night. Is there a way to shorten that strobe or turn it off? I couldn't find anything in the web interface for the button other than turning the WiFi blue led off.


    I should also mention the Shelly button is interacting with home assistant and running an automation. Could this be a setting in home assistant?


    Any help is greatly appreciated.
