    Howzit Guys,

    From Durban, started this hobby last year September and got hooked almost immediately. I like setting up planted tanks and my absolute favourite fish is the honey gourami, all types of gouramis actually.

    My entire system is hooked up to sonoff smart wifi switch, i did it this past weekend.IMG-20210429-WA0006.jpeg IMG-20210429-WA0008.jpeg

    Looks awesome.
    Just be aware with the sonoff switch that it doesn't automatically turn back on after loadshedding. If the power goes out then you have to turn your sonoff stuff back on via the app once the power comes back on again.

    On this, you can set your sonoff to turn on multiple times before you set it to turn off so if it's offline on the first trigger. You'll catch it on one of the following ones when the power is back on.

    Just remember this when you do maintenance. Turn off at plug not sonoff.
