Serial Flashing

Flash the Tasmota firmware.

  • Get the latest Tasmota firmware.
  • Use Tazmotizer for flashing via serial interface.
    • Start Tasmotizer.
    • Select Serial Port.
    • Check Save original firmware.
    • Pick 1 MB from dropdown list.
    • Select BIN radio button.
    • Open latest Tasmota firmware from above.
    • Check Erase before flashing.
  • Connect USB to serial interface from computer to board with 3v jumper selected.
    • Connect to board as follows.
USB Adapter Eachen Board
VCC V
GND G
TXD R
RXD T
  • Power up the Eachen Relay board with the #1 Relay button held down.
  • Continue holding the #1 Relay button down during the entire flashing process.
  • Hit blue Tasmotize! button in Tasmotizer.
  • After a minute or so the Eachen board will reboot into new firmware.
  • Unplug power from Eachen board. Wait 5 secs then replug power.

    Connect to WIFI

  • Using WIFI capable device connect to AP labeled tasmota_XXXXXX.
    (where XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of the device’s MAC addr.)
  • Once connected go to http://192.168.4.1
  • Enter your WIFI information into AP1 SSID and AP1 Password and check the box beside password.
  • Hit Save.

Setup

  • Go to your Router Admin page.
    • Look for IP address of device named tasmota_XXXXXX.
      (where XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of device’s MAC addr.)
  • Enter the IP address from above into a web browser.
  • Go to Configuration, Other
    • (This step:
    • configures the device’s parameters including TuyaMCU serial COMM and 4 dummy relays used in the Rules below)
  • Copy

  • Paste into Template field.
  • Check Activate box.
  • Hit Save.
  • Device will reboot.
  • Go to Console
    • (This step sets up:
    • 9600 baud rate with so97 0
    • enables MQTT with so3 1
    • publishes TuyaReceived messages to MQTT with so66 1
    • keeps momentary timing slider from turning off dummy relay9(BUS) with so77 1
    • keeps momentary timing slider from turning on dummy relay9(BUS) with so20 1
    • assigns the Tuya MCU serial relay devices to Tasmota devices
      • relay1 with tuyamcu 11,1
      • relay2 with tuyamcu 12,2
      • relay3 with tuyamcu 13,3
      • relay4 with tuyamcu 14,4
      • all on function with tuyamcu 15,13
      • momentary timing slider with tuyamcu 21,103)

    • Paste into Console’s Enter command space.
    • Device will reboot.
  • Go to Console
    • (This step sets up:
    • an interlock on dummy relays 6(SLM),7(MAM),8(ILKM) so only 1 relay mode may be selected with interlock 6,7,8 and interlock 1
    • 0 to 60 secs timing on momentary timing slider with dimmerrange 0,600 and dimmerstep 5)

    • Copy

    • Paste into Console’s Enter command space.
    • Device will reboot.
  • Go to Console
    • (This step:
    • names all the WebUI buttons using the first Copy/Paste
      • ALL = ALL ON button
      • SLM = Self Lock Mode (any number of relays remain ON until turned OFF)
      • MAM = Momentary Mode (uses Dimmer Slider to set ON time length from 0 to 60 secs)
      • ILKM = Interlock Mode (Only 1 relay can remain ON at a time)
      • BUS = Boot Up State (Do all relays remain OFF or turn ON when power is applied to board)
    • creates Rules to be used for
      • Boot Up State with Rule1 and
      • Relay Mode with Rule2
        using the second Copy/Paste)
