Preflashed ESPHome / Tasmota Smart Bulbs with an Added Bonus - Kauf BLF10

Image
  Someone has finally done it, a bulb with an oh sh!$ recovery method!  The Kauf BLF10 Bulb is on Amazon and preflashed with ESPHome .  Yes, you can also install other open source ESP8266 projects such Tasmota , WLED , etc by simply using your web browser.  No exploits, no hacks, no soldering, no wires, take it out of the box and go.   Purchase and skip the reading (Amazon) The bulb is a 10W LED (not to be confused with wattages stated as equivalent), I do not see a lumen rating at this time on the specifications but found the brightness by eye to be on par for a bulb of this size.  There are 5 independent color channels to this bulb; Red, Green, Blue, Cool White, and Warm White.  None of that 4 channel simulated warm white or cool white mess!  Keep in mind this is an A21 sized bulb that could have size issues fitting in some enclosures.  What's the added bonus?   Your eyes aren't deceiving you, those are indeed solder pads for 3V3, RX, TX, GND and GPIO Zero.  What does that

Zigbee Network Key Sniffing

Image
M.J. Wydra https://github.com/Tediore Discord: Tediore#8266 Synopsis This guide will explain how to sniff the network key from a Zigbee hub. The network key encrypts all messages sent between devices on a Zigbee network. When pairing a device, the coordinator sends the network key to the device which is encrypted with another key called the link key . There is a default link key called the well-known link key that all Zigbee devices use to encrypt the network key if no other link key is specified at the time of pairing (such as one generated with an installation code that is unique to the device being paired and is shared with the Zigbee software at the time of pairing). This guide assumes that the default link key is used. Objective Sniffing the network key from a hub can be useful when you want to see what Zigbee messages a manufacturer’s hub is sending to a paired device when performing certain actions such as changing settings on the device. This could assist you in adding that

iTead Sonoff iFan04-L - They listened!

Image
While chatting on Discord we got on the smart ceiling fan controller options or lack thereof.  Long story short there's a new listing for the Sonoff iFan04 controller.  Could it be?!?!  Did they finally listen to several of us and do a fan controller with 120VAC fans in mind?  YUP!  They sure did.  Is it ESP82xx based so we can put Tasmota or ESPHome on it?  Absolutely!   Buy from iTead Buy on Amazon Let's take a few steps back.  So what is it?  The iFan0x controller is designed to address a common problem many people have with wiring.  In older homes there would be one light switch in a bedroom to control the fan and light together.  If this switch was turned off, both the light and fan went off.  Of course in the past 20+ yrs that did change in many areas where they ran an additional hot wire in the bundle and have a 2 gang switch for light and fan.  Instead of a costly rewire the iFan controller steps in to fill the gap.  It's designed to receive the one hot wire and br
