Difference between Shelly 1 and Shelly 1L?

  • Hi all, is there a place to see a comparison between the functional and technical details of the Shelly 1 and Shelly 1L? I bought my first Shelly 2.5's and installed them with my roller shutter system and now I am looking to expand to control some simple lights. I almost bought some Shelly 1's but saw that the Shelly 1L's are recently released but am not sure if I should go ahead with buying Shelly 1s or buy the new Shelly 1L's.

  • Hi!


    The main difference between the two shellys are:


    Shelly 1L: No neutral required

    Power on the device and control your light, fan, or other appliances only by Live wire, no neutral required to be connected to the device.


    Shelly 1:

    Higher load (16 A), and dry contacts (the switched relay is independent from the supply current).


    For switching lights on and off, the shelly 1 is best in most of the cases.
